Digital Textile Printing: The wave of the future
On its stand in Hall 4, Mimaki will address the need in the textiles and apparel industries for cost-effective short runs or samples with its Tx300P-1800B 1.8m wide printer and Tiger-1800B direct-to-textile high-speed inkjet printer.
The Tx300P-1800B’s unique design makes it suitable for printing on a wide variety of fabrics, including bulky textured materials as well as sheer fabric and stretchy materials such as knits. Printing with the Mimaki TP400 textile pigment inks eliminates the need for steaming or washing, reducing the space required for on-demand textile printing.
“We are seeing a growing demand from consumers for more customised fabrics for home and fast fashion uses,” adds Horsten. “To support this trend, our solutions must be able to operate with an increasingly wider range of materials and formats. Our customers want to be able to produce these digitally printed fabrics on demand, cost-effectively and to a very high standard of quality. Both the flexibility of our solutions and the quality of our inks play a vital role in delivering the consistent reliability required to meet demand for faster time to market without any compromise in quality.”
