Mimaki has announced that a light black ink will be added to its range of SB410 sublimation ink spot colours from February 2016. The light black joins the recently released neon yellow and pink fluorescent inks, which are ideal for low-volume, high-quality use in fashion and sportswear and swimwear.
The addition will expand apparel production possibilities for users and will increase the versatility of the TS300P-1800 wide format printer, a dedicated dye sublimation inkjet printer for apparel and textile applications. The new light black inks will be available in two litre ink packs and the TS300P-1800 is scheduled to demonstrate some of the innovative and creative capabilities of the inks at FESPA Digital 2016 in Amsterdam, in Hall 1 on Stand E15 from 8th – 11th March.
“These new spot colours can add real value to fashion and sportswear,” states Stephen Woodall, National Sales Manager for textile and apparel, at Mimaki’s exclusive UK and Irish distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd. “The new light black improves the already high print quality, enhancing photographic images and gradations even further. Alongside the fluorescent pink and yellow inks, users now really have the capability to create highly unique garments.”
Woodall concludes: “The fluorescent samples we have produced on the Mimaki TS300P-1800 are spectacular, so we anticipate that combining this with the new light black will deliver even more eye-catching output. We look forward to demonstrating this to visitors to FESPA Digital in March.”
