Mimaki, a global industry leader of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, recently announced the release of the new TS55-1800, a 76.3-inch, dye-sublimation transfer inkjet printer.
The new model offers high-end features, such as low running costs, industry-leading productivity and unattended continuous printing.
For this machine Neenah Coldenhove will supply the 64-inch Mimaki Vision Jet-X sublimation transfer paper in mini jumbo rolls with a length of about 8,202 feet.
When running the printer at its maximum speed (1,506 SqFt/Hr; 140 SqM/Hr), a 492-foot roll of transfer paper runs out in approximately two hours. The system was therefore incapable of coping with an uninterrupted operation, such as overnight printing in the absence of operators. The Mimaki Vision Jet-X jumbo roll allows for unattended printing with a longer production run. The mini jumbo roll also contributes to reducing the running cost with lower paper costs per square foot in comparison to normal plotter roll.
“With the release of the TS55-1800, Mimaki has made exceptional digital textile printing features available to both the mid-level and high-end markets. Now, customers are able to effortlessly scale their operation with a cost-effective sublimation printer that meets the high quality and short turnaround demands of the ever-evolving textile and apparel industry” said Ryosuke Nakayama, textile & apparel product manager at Mimaki.
