AMF | Automatic Media Feeder

AMF is Mimaki’s feed and wind system which absorbs tension differences and stabilize the thickness of the fabric during printing. Since each type of fabric has its own stretching characteristics, the system is available on most of our direct-to-textile printers. The tension, applied to the fabric during printing, varies according to the changes in the outer diameter of the front and rear rolls.

The advantage of AMF explained

AMF applied

AMF ensures a uniform tension and constant thickness of the fabric during printing, minimizing colour differences while increasing image quality.

AMF not applied

As the tension and consequently the thickness of the fabric changes constantly, it results in an fluctuating and unstable image quality.
