Mimaki Europe to present line-up of cutting-edge digital textile solutions at Innovate Textile & Apparel Virtual Trade Show
Mimaki Europe will create a virtual showcase of its latest textile solutions at this year’s Innovate Textile & Apparel Trade Show (15-30 October 2020). Mirroring the traditional trade show experience, virtual show attendees will be able to tour Mimaki’s booth, see the technology in action and speak to the team about the latest market trends and the solutions that are helping customers meet current demands. The company’s flagship dye-sublimation printer, TS55-1800, and the new hybrid printer, TX300P-1800 MkII, will take centre stage on Mimaki’s interactive virtual booth and visitors will benefit from several exclusive show promotions, including a special deal on the TS55-1800 and a chance to win an entry-level sublimation printer.
Dye sublimation is a breakout technology in textile printing, allowing high quality, vivid prints on a multitude of fabrics, such as polyester or elastane, all on-demand. Mimaki’s TS55-1800 combines this ground-breaking technology with Mimaki’s renowned expertise and innovation. The printer offers industrial scale production and incorporates Mimaki’s core technologies, such as NCU (Nozzle Check System) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System), nozzle control and restoration systems that ensure automatic detection and replacement of clogged nozzles without interrupting production. Additionally, MAPS (Mimaki Advanced Pass system), a system created to prevent banding, uses a special algorithm at each print pass and calculates the most effective way to jet the ink droplets according to colour, coverage and speed.
Available with the Mini Jumbo Roll option that can help save up to 25% on paper costs and a 10L bulk ink system, the Mimaki TS55-1800 offers the lowest running cost in the market and is the ideal production model for small- to medium-sized companies. At Innovate Textile & Apparel Trade Show, Mimaki will launch a special promotion for this printer, making it even more appealing to those companies looking to diversify their business during these challenging times.
Launched earlier this year, the Tx300P-1800 MkII features printing on both textile and paper with one machine, providing unrivalled flexibility and opening new doors for print service providers. This hybrid textile printer switches swiftly between direct-to-textile and transfer printing via an interchangeable platen and allows users to select from three different ink combinations to load on the machine: textile pigment/direct sublimation, textile pigment/sublimation transfer, or direct sublimation/sublimation transfer. This enables the production of an array of applications from fashion textiles to interior fabrics and wallpaper. Both affordable and versatile, the Mimaki Tx300P-1800 MkII appeals to smaller print service providers and large volume production houses alike, delivering faster turnarounds and more cost-effective short-runs and textile sampling.
Event organisers, World Textile Information Network (WTiN), created the Innovate Textile & Apparel Trade Show to bring exhibitors and visitors together to connect in these unprecedented times. Mimaki supports this vision and is excited to interact with its customers and prospects, as well as aid their next investment with special show promotions, including the chance to win a Mimaki TS30-1300 entry-level sublimation printer(1).
“The Innovate Textile & Apparel Trade Show is an opportunity for Mimaki to further strengthen its position in the textile market, engage with our customers and share with, and learn from, the wider industry,” says Danna Drion, Senior Marketing Manager, Mimaki Europe. “We have a comprehensive portfolio spanning different technologies and we are keen to explain the benefits of these printers to help textile print service providers find the right technology for their business. In these challenging times, we also want to ensure that our customers and prospects fully understand the capabilities of our solutions and take advantage of the promotional offers at the show, so that they can confidently make their next investment and maximise their production line to remain profitable and competitive. This event will allow us to do exactly that and we look forward to the opportunity.”
Mimaki will also use the Innovate Textile & Apparel Trade Show to engage visitors in one-to-one virtual meetings, as the company’s experts will be available for virtual live chats 24/7. In line with the global reach of the event, Mimaki Europe will partner with Mimaki USA and Mimaki Global to ensure that visitors from all over the world have access to regional spokespeople any time.
