Dye sublimation textile digital printers suited for different market segments will be exhibited at Mimaki partner’s, Thebes International booth.

Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, has today announced it will be represented by its established partner, Thebes International, at the Egy Stitch & Tex trade show in Cairo, Egypt (28 February-3 March 2019, Cairo International Convention and Exhibitions Center). Showcasing a range of market leading digital textile printers at the booth (Stand D1, Hall 4), Thebes International will demonstrate how textile companies and print service providers interested in taking their first steps into the digital textile world can use Mimaki’s high-end dye-sublimation digital textile solutions to support increased revenues, address new markets and drive new application possibilities in textiles.

As one of two specific highlights on the Thebes International booth, visitors to Egy Stitch & Tex 2019 will see Mimaki’s cutting-edge dye-sublimation solutions. Central to the showcase will be the brand’s latest dye sublimation printer – the TS55-1800. Offering continuous operation and an unprecedented price-quality ratio, this business-enhancing printer addresses the entry and mid-level markets and is designed for users that demand high productivity and high-quality print with vibrant colours and vivid imagery. Equipped with Mimaki’s core technologies, such as MAPS, NCU and NRS, it prints with the new Sb610 inks, that hold the coveted ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certification, meeting specific requirements with regard to sustainability. The TS55-1800 is suitable for interior fabrics, sports and fashion apparel, flags and tapestries. As part of the dye-sublimation technology range, the renowned Mimaki TS300P-1800 and JV5-160 will also be showcased.

The second highlight at Thebes International booth will be the Mimaki TX300P-1800B, a high-quality belt-fed direct-to-textile digital printer. Equipped with an innovative automated ‘sticky belt’ transport system, the TX300P-1800B enables direct printing on a broad range of natural and man-made fabrics, as it proves particularly effective on stretchable materials. The printer is equipped with Mimaki’s core technologies and is available with sublimation, disperse, reactive, acid dyes and pigment inks. Live demonstrations will be run at the booth, with the TX300P-1800B printing on cotton with textile pigment inks. The TX300P-1800B mainly addresses the production of fashion, clothing and soft furnishings.

“Egy Stitch & Tex represents a fantastic opportunity for our partner to demonstrate Mimaki’s diverse range of digital textile printers to the Middle-East and North Africa regions,” comments Ronald van den Broek, General Manager Sales EMEA, Mimaki. “Textile printers willing to diversify their product portfolio and print service providers searching for opportunities in the textile environment will be able to see and touch our profit-enhancing solutions at the show.”
