Mimaki Engineering, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, today announces that it will showcase its broad portfolio of cutting-edge digital print technologies at ITMA 2019 (20-26 June 2019, Fira de Barcelona, Spain). This will include the first global showing of a brand-new hybrid digital textile printer, uniquely featuring both direct-to-textile and direct-to-transfer print capabilities. Crucially, these features enable textile and garment manufacturers to achieve unparalleled flexibility and enhanced application opportunities for increased business growth.

To facilitate these benefits, the new Mimaki printer also allows multiple sets of inks to be loaded simultaneously, supporting increased fabric range versatility and maximum product variety.

As the future of textile printing and for further production benefits, Mimaki will also give a sneak preview of its new and upcoming TA Job Controller software, specifically designed for textile production environments. For use on Mimaki’s successful, EDP-awarded Tiger Pro Series and Rimslow TR Series – and all Mimaki textile printers –, TA Job Controller enables users to connect one-on-one to the RIP and other devices, for an automated workflow from design to pre-print, print and post print processes.

Printing textiles more efficiently and with higher quality with Transjet Drive

Sappi launches a sublimation paper optimised for glue-belt printers

Sappi launches a sublimation paper optimised for glue-belt printers
The rapid individualisation and personalisation of fashion and home textiles on polyester-based materials using sublimation transfer is in high market demand. With this in mind, Sappi is expanding its portfolio of dye sublimation papers: with its silky-smooth reverse side, the Transjet Drive sublimation paper innovation enables better runnability on digital high-speed printers with a glue-belt system. This smooth printing performance increases productivity. Moreover, due to its low grammage, Transjet Drive offers weight per unit area advantages.

The new sublimation paper is specifically designed for glue-belt printers, but is also suitable for high-speed printers without a glue-belt system. Due to its specially treated reverse side, it adheres to the printing belt without slipping and can pass through quickly. The smooth reverse side also ensures that the paper does not stick to the adhesive-belt and that it slides away without leaving any residue on the belt. These special properties protect the glue-belt and save work steps such as cleaning or corrections during production. With grammages of 45 and 55 g/m², Transjet Drive also offers weight advantages. Here is another reason why this new product is attractive to customers: every ton of Transjet Drive gives you more printable paper area compared to heavier grammages.

On the surface, the paper is specially coated, so that the ink dries quickly and the final result on the textiles appears very colour-intensive. Thanks to fast drying, the webs can be rolled up again immediately after printing. Because of these properties, Transjet Drive is used especially for fashion and home textiles such as scarves, bed linen and curtains. The 55 g/m² version is also suitable for soft signage.
