Mimaki has announced it will debut its entry-level sublimation inkjet printer, the Mimaki TS30-1300, at FESPA 2017.
The show is scheduled for 8th – 12th May in Hamburg, Germany. Mimaki Europe, which has two stands at FESPA, will be showing this new printer on its stand in the Textile Hall (Stand B6-C50). Mimaki will also be present in the Digital Hall (Stand A1-A25), where it will be demonstrating a wide range of solutions for the sign and graphics market and industrial print.
Mimaki’s products are distributed exclusively in the UK and Ireland by Hybrid Services. “The Mimaki TS30-1300 offers an ideal solution for clothing and apparel companies looking for a simple dye sublimation printer,” says the company’s National Sales Manager, John de la Roche. “This printer brings the huge potential of high quality dye sublimation printing at an extremely attractive price point.”
Entry-level printer with countless possibilities
The Mimaki TS30-1300 is a 1.3m wide roll-to-roll sublimation transfer inkjet printer for the textile industry. It enables users to quickly and easily print their designs on demand at speeds up to 20sq metres per hour. The printer features a selected set of functions that reduces the operator learning curve, making it extremely easy to use and the bundled RasterLink6 software along with the printer’s highly functional Sb54 ink make it simple for even first-time users to get up and running quickly.
The TS30-1300 is ideal for in-house production of low-volume printed products, including prototyping of textiles or sports apparel, or creation of customised items. This reduces lead times for sample delivery when compared to outsourcing and design changes can be implemented quickly. With the versatile TS30-1300, it is possible to print original full-colour images on polyester fabrics, now widely used in the textile and apparel industry. This process can be used for clothing, bags, scarves, socks and more. One-off designs for items like player numbers and names on sports uniforms can also be created with ease.
“The TS30-1300 is a great opportunity for generating new revenue streams,” continues de la Roche. “It’s also possible to produce items such as polyester-based banners, towels, t-shirts, handkerchiefs, mouse pads, lanyards and cushions and in addition to textile-based products, the TS30-1300 can be used to create unique designs on polyester-coated mugs, glasses and coasters – customised items that can broaden product offerings and drive new revenues.”
