Features of TS3-1600

High print quality and high speed printing

A newly developed high speed print head containing 180 nozzles x 8 lines delivers high speed prints and maintains the high print quality. Print quality in 4-color bidirectional mode is also improved using a “symmetric ink arrangement”.

Unattended continuous printing

Uninterrupted Ink Supply System (UISS)
The UISS allows for continuous printing in 4-colour mode. When one ink cartridge runs out, another cartridge of the same colour begins supplying ink. Ink cartridges can be changed during printing.


Mimaki Bulk Ink System (MBIS) – optional
The bulk ink system is an eco-friendly ink system that produces less waste while achieving continuous printing. It uses 2-litre ink packs and achieves as stable and reliable ink ejection as printing solely with cartridges. It is possible to use both 2-litre ink packs in combination with regular 220/440cc cartridges.


Head height adjustment to prevent head strikes
The head height can be adjusted in three steps from 2 mm up to 5 mm to suit media thickness and to ensure smooth media handling.
Automatic drying fan to increase drying speed (optional)

Drying speed is improved with the use of a post-heater and optional drying fan. The take up device can be used even when printing at high speed.
