TRAPIS, Revolution in Textile Printing

Eco-friendly and versatile textile printing made easy

Diverse and sustainable textile printing for a greener tomorrow

TRAPIS, short for Transfer Pigment System, is a groundbreaking waterless digital textile printing technology developed by Mimaki. This waterless technology is eco-friendly, efficient, and versatile.

TRAPIS provides a simple two-step process, consisting of a Mimaki TS330 printer with a TP ink set, heater unit and a calender (allowing a pressure of 5-8 bar). The design of choice is printed by the TS330 onto Mimaki Texcol paper, which is then transferred to the fabric via a calender.

Unlike both analogue and digital conventional dye-printing methods, TRAPIS enables printing and commercialisation with virtually no water.

Diverse and sustainable textile printing for a greener tomorrow

TRAPIS eliminates fabric type restrictions. Unlike traditional methods, it delivers vibrant designs on all fabric types – from cotton to polyester, natural to synthetic – while reducing waste water by up to 90% and cutting the carbon footprint by up to 92% compared to traditional methods.

With its unparalleled flexibility, textile manufacturers can run dynamic production and deliver short runs in no time. Ideal for eco-conscious businesses, TRAPIS is user-friendly and perfect for on-demand production.
