Mimaki USA recently released a new dye-sublimation transfer inkjet printer, designed to offer operators long production runs and unattended continuous printing with low operating costs.
The 1.9-m (76.3-in.) TS55-1800 prints with sublimation inks at a maximum output of 140 m2 (1506 sf) per hour. To further increase productivity, the unit includes two optional add-ons: a 10-kg (22-lb) single-colour ink supply, which allows for continuous operation, and a mini jumbo roll—a feeding unit that loads 1.6-m (64-in.) Mimaki Vision Jet-X transfer paper with a length of about 2500 m (8202 ft). This addition is designed to help operators ensure high-volume, unattended printing for longer production runs, as well as decrease the overall running paper costs as compared to standard plotter rolls.
“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,” said textile and apparel product manager Ryosuke Nakayama. “Customers can 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.”
