Mimaki has enhanced its Tiger 1800B digital textile printer with the MkII version introduced at Fespa 2018. The new machine offers a higher 1200dpi print mode and an Advanced Pass System (MAPS) to minimise banding.
Bert Benckhuysen, product manager EMEA at Mimaki Europe, said: “The Tiger 1800B MkII printers, available in two models for direct -to -textile and heat transfer sublimation, are another example our strategy to be a total solutions provider. To that end we are also making available a new range of pre-treatment and post-treatment machines, and we are working towards the development of the Internet of Things for textiles and apparel markets.
The Mimaki Tiger 1800B MkII prints at up to 385m2/hr. As well as the higher quality mode and MAPS Mimaki’s Nozzle Checking Unit (NCU) and Nozzle Recovery System (NRS) are also.
At Fespa 2018 the new Tiger is being shown in combination with Mimaki Vision Jet-X sublimation transfer paper, available in 1620 and 1830 mm widths.
