Features

Features of Tx300P-1800B

Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS)

MAPSMAPS is Mimaki’s unique anti-banding feature. To prevent banding, swath boundaries are overprinted and boundaries prone to banding are printed with fewer ink droplets.

 

 


Continuous Uninterrupted Printing Features

Nozzle Recovery Function
In the event of a nozzle malfunction not being repairable by the use of the maintenance function, printing can continue by the use of another nozzle, without any loss of productivity or a reduction in image quality.
continuous-uninterrupted-printing-features

Uninterrupted Ink Supply System (UISS)
Two ink bottles per colour can be set with the UISS function. When an ink bottle runs out, another bottle of the same colour automatically starts supplying ink.


5 Ink types for a range of applications and textile types

Ink type Product name Colour Features Application Applicable fabric
Sublimation dye Sb420 Bl, M, Y, K, Lbl, Lm Sublimation ink for direct printing. No transfer paper is required. Soft signage Polyester
Disperse dye Dd400 C, M, Y, K, R, Grey,
Violet, Pink
Inks are fixed by heating and have high durability. Industrial textile, Luxury apparel, Home furnishing Polyester, nylon, acetate, and other fibres
Textile pigment TP400 C, M, Y, K Simple post-printing process. No steaming, washing and drying processes are required. Inks are fixed only by heating. Home furnishing Cotton, hemp,

Reactive dye Rc400 C, M, Y, K, Bl, R, Or, Lk Inks produce a wide and vibrant gamut of colours, and have water
resistance, light-fastness and rub-fastness, as dyestuff molecules bond
with the fibres.
Apparel, Home furnishing Cotton, hemp, silk, rayon, and other fibres
Acid dye Ac400 C, M, Y, K, Bl, R, Or, Lk Inks produce vivid and brilliant colours on selected natural or synthetic fibres. Apparel, Home furnishing Wool, leather, silk, nylon, and other fabrics

Adjustable higher head gap settings for thicker fabrics

  • While printing on raised fibre surface textiles, a high head gap setting is required to prevent contact between the printhead and any raised fibres. (FIG.1)
  • On more conventional models, restricted head gap reduces the accuracy of ink droplet placement. (FIG.2)
  • The Tx300P-1800B employs a new advanced printhead with a high head gap to ensure accurate ink droplet placement, thereby enabling high-quality printing on a wide variety of fabric types. (FIG.3)
  • The head gap is now fully adjustable from 2mm up to 7mm in 0.05mm increments, which enables printing on a wide range of different thicknesses of fabric.

High performance TXLINK3 Lite RIP software

Target colour is reproduced1. COLOUR REPLACEMENT
Desired colours can be represented by specifying the ink volume of each ink colour.

  • Create desired colours
    When the printed colour differs from that expected, the colour replacement function enables a user to specify the desired printing colour as the target colour. This function is useful for reproducing corporate colours.
  • Colour replacement by swatch book / named colour
    Frequently used colours can be registered in a list, to allow automatic colour replacement when the file is opened in the RIP.
  • Easy to create different colour data
    Easy to create different colour dataWith TxLink3 Lite, colours are easily replaced on vector and raster data.
  • Colour chart printing
    Both ‘Swatch Book’ and ‘Named Colour’ have a ‘Print Similar Colours’ function, which enables similar colours to the colour selected to be printed as a chart.

2. STEP AND REPEAT
Large seamless patterns can be produced from a single image, including repeat and mirror patterns.

3. MULTICOLOUR ICC PROFILE CREATION
ICC profiles can be created simply to match a target colour by following the wizard.
Colour profile creation procedures:
ICC Profile

  1. Specify the ink colour for each ink slot.
  2. Set the total ink limit: Print the ink limit chart, then set the maximum ink volume.
  3. Measure the ink density error: (Adjustment of ink density gradation) Each ink density is measured. Density is automatically calculated and adjusted.
  4. ICC profile creation: Measurement of the configuration chart printed from Colour GPS, The profile is automatically created.

Belt transfer system for optimum print quality on stretchable fabrics

Stable feeding and transportation of the printable fabric is crucial for high quality direct-to-textile printing. Mimaki’s advanced belt-fed technology, incorporating a ‘sticky belt’ transport system ensures high levels of accuracy and image quality even when working with stretchable fabrics.Belt-Transport-System


Sticky belt transport system incorporating belt washing facility

The ‘Sticky Belt’ transport system ensures consistent, high quality printing on stretchable or thin fabrics and is further enhanced by the following additional functions:Sticky-Belt-Transport-System

  1. Built-in Belt Washing Mechanism is designed to automatically remove struck-through ink residue from the belt. The mechanism also helps prevent any accumulation of dirt on the belt, thereby maintaining the adhesive qualities of the belt.
    (NB: when not required, this function can be turned off to prolong the life of the adhesive belt)
  2. Improved Correct Feed Control (CFC) incorporates a high resolution encoder unit to measure any belt movement more accurately enabling more effective control of feed length and drive rollers.

Sophisticated RIP software maximizes the performance of Tx300P-1800B
