TX500-1800 Series wide format textile printers
The Tx500-1800 Series are 72-inch wide high-speed printers for the fabric and textile industry. The DS (direct sublimation) model can print at speeds of up to 1615 SqFt/Hr for production printing onto pre-treated polyester fabrics. It features a degassing module that enables the printer to use 2 liter bottled inks instead of conventional degassed ink packs, reducing costs. The B (belt) model features a conveyor system to ensure stable feeding of materials on stretchy fabrics.

MDM-20 increases inkjet-ability and reduces ink costs
The Mimaki degassing module “MDM-20” eliminates the gasses or bubbles inside the ink. This means nozzle blockage is lessened and the accuracy of ink dot placement is improved. In addition, this module enables the printer to use undegassed bottled inks instead of conventional degassed ink packs, thereby reducing ink costs.

Continuous Print / enables increased productivity
Tension roller ensures stable feeding / take-up of polyester fabrics
The tension roller optimizes the tension of print fabrics and prevents loose media feed / take-up. Therefore, beautiful prints are assured. Moreover, “AMF”-system also ensures stable feeding /take-up of heavy rolled media by adjusting the tension.There is no need to constantly monitor the printer during high volume printing.
A built-in heater accelerates the drying time of printed media
A built-in heater accelerates the ink drying time by heating the media after printing. In addition, the external drying heater (optional) helps ink dry much faster. This reduces the occurrence of ink set-off, even during high-speed printing.
Mist absorption filter
The mist absorption filter prevents issues caused by ink mists and enhances the stability of print operations by suctioning the mist inside the printer and discharging it.
New sublimation ink “Sb300”
The sublimation ink “Sb300” will be simultaneously released with “Tx500-1800DS”. The “Sb300” ink offers a more affordable price than conventional ink. Furthermore, this ink produces brilliant color and dries fast.
Setting Roll-up media up to 60kg
Roll-up media of up to 60kg and 300mm in diameter can be used. There is no need to frequently change the media, meaning large orders can be handled smoothly and without interruption due to continuous printing.
