TX300P-1800 MkII

The all-in-one textile solution

The ultimate solution for textile sampling or short runs on-demand printing

The TX300P-1800 MKII printer

Uniquely designed with versatility at its core, this printer enables both direct-to-textile and transfer printing. Combined with interchangeable print platen and three different dual ink combinations, it offers unrivalled flexibility within a single system. It affords all of the well-known benefits of digital print technology, including more cost-effective short runs and faster turnarounds. Such benefits are not attainable using analogue print methods, which are still prevalent in the modern textile printing industry; benefits that make this technology also ideal for sampling.

Unique features

...
  • Versatility in fabrics...
    Hybrid printer, boasting both direct-to-textile and sublimation transfer print capabilities.
    This unique Hybrid printer can load 3 different dual ink sets at the same time, making it possible to print on sublimation transfer paper and direct-to-textile. A wide range of different fabrics and applications become possible with just one printer.

    With 5 dedicated direct-to-textile ink sets, this printer can cover all possible applications for direct printing.

    Hybrid functionality ink settings
    Sb420 Bl, M, Y, K – TP400 C, M, Y, K
    Sb411 Bl, M, Y, K – TP400 C, M, Y, K
    Sb420 Bl, M, Y, K – Sb411 Bl, M, Y, K

...
  • Flexibility in technology...
    Unique in the textile printing market today is the possibility to change from direct printing to sublimation paper printing by installing an easy-to-click vacuum platen.
    When printing direct-to-textile, the excess ink penetrated through the fabric is drained by an ink-receiving channel.

    When printing on heat transfer paper however, a vacuum platen can easily be clicked-on, needed for paper printing to prevent the paper from cockling.
...
  • Unique high head gap...
    Accurate dot placement even when using a higher print head gap.
    With unstable fabrics or thin paper, we want to prevent the print heads from touching the media. Mimaki has developed its own waveform for the print heads to fire ink drops at a faster speed. Therefore, it is possible to lift the print heads up to 7mm high, which still results in a high print quality.

    TX300P-1800 MKII






    Ink drops are fired straight even with a high head gap, which results in an accurate dot placement ensuring sharp edges.

    Older generation printer






    Ink drops deviate by high head gap printing, which results in inaccurate dot placement causing blurry edges and grainy appearances.

Versatility in inks

thanks to unique hybrid technology

The TX300P-1800MKII offers a unique opportunity with all available textiles inks possible for basically every application in textile printing. Mimaki is offering a total of 10 different ink sets including 3 dual ink configurations to even broaden the range of applications. Available ink types include: Reactive (RC400), Acid (AC400), Pigment (TP400), Disperse (DD400), Direct Sublimation (SB420) and Paper Transfer Sublimation (SB411).

Choose pigment inks to create home textile and fashion with cotton and linen fabrics. Go for sublimation inks to create sportswear, softsignage, fashion and home textile on polyester fabrics. Choose disperse disperse for superior fastness by applying high temperature fixation on polyester, nylon and acetate to create flags, industrial textile, home textile and high-end fashion. Or go for reactive of acid inks if you want to achieve vivid colours.

For even more confidence

our inks are OEKO-TEX certified

Mimaki inks Sb411 and Sb420 for the TX300P-1800 MKII are OEKO-TEX® certified. ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products are suitable to print skin-friendly clothing and other textiles for end users.
This certificate therefore constitutes an important decision-making element when purchasing inks for textile production.

This printer includes Mimaki Core Technologies that offer the best print quality, maximum productivity and reduced exposure to risks that can delay production. See below list of core technologies that are included in the TX300P-1800 MKII.

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.

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.
