Mimaki Europe, a leading provider of industrial inkjet printers, cutting plotters, and 3D printers, has today introduced a new direct-to-film (DTF) printer, the TxF300-75. The new system incorporates the already well-received stability and functionality of Mimaki’s first DTF printer, the TxF150-75, while delivering new levels of productivity with print speeds that are three times higher.
Building on the success of the TxF150-75, this new printer offers enhanced productivity while maintaining the stability and functionality that users have come to appreciate.
Enhancing Productivity and Quality:
The new TxF300-75 meets the same objectives as the first model, as well as catering to a diverse set of printing demands, including large companies requiring high-quality outputs with high productivity.
“We believe in giving customers choice and anticipating their needs, which is why we are expanding our DTF printer line-up hot on the heels of the inaugural system. The TxF300-75 has been designed to offer even greater productivity. The innovative 80cm width introduced with our first DTF printer remains a feature of this new system, enabling customers to print more efficiently. It also retains the Mimaki technologies that overcome the common ink ejection and ink sedimentation issues of the other DTF printers in the market,” explained Arjen Evertse, General Sales Manager, Mimaki Europe.
Innovative Features for Reliability and Quality
The reliability of the Mimaki’s DTF printer series is owing to the built-in ink circulation system to prevent white ink clogging and a degassed ink pack, lowering the risk of poor ink ejection. The new printer also includes core Mimaki features, including NCU (Nozzle Check Unit) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) for stable, uninterrupted print production. The DTF process also enables customers to print on a wider range of fabric such as cotton, mixed fabric, polyester, and dark coloured fabrics.
Sustainability Focus: ECO-PASSPORT Certified Inks
In line with Mimaki’s sustainability goals, the TxF300-75 utilises Mimaki’s PHT50 pigment inks which are ECO-PASSPORT certified – validating their lower environmental impact and meeting the requirements for OEKO-TEX certification.
Partnership with Adkins and Future Development
Mimaki also announced its partnership with heat transfer technology manufacturer, Adkins, at FESPA 2023. Adkins has developed the Inline 800 DTF Powder Shaker Cure Unit, a finishing solution that matches Mimaki’s DTF systems in both size and quality. This unit is also compatible with the new TxF300-75, ensuring that customers benefit from a complete solution from industry market-leaders if they choose either Mimaki DTF model.
Arjen Evertse, General Sales Manager at Mimaki Europe, emphasized the company’s dedication to customer profitability and business success. The collaboration with Adkins as a finishing partner aligns with this commitment, ensuring a seamless print production process and strengthening Mimaki’s position in the DTF sector.
The new TxF300-75 is set to be commercially available in the EMEA region in Q4 2023
