Belt convey mechanism ensures stable textile transportation
As the textile is fixed on the belt and transported without pulling, stable, high-quality printing is now possible on sheer and thin textile. Its unique design makes it suitable for printing on a wide variety of textile, including raised fibers and stretchy materials such as knits.
Crumpling and bending of textiles is reduced as the printer is equipped with a “crumple-free roller” and a “paste roller” on the belt conveyance system, resulting in beautiful and stable results.
1. Belt conveyance system
Stable and beautiful printing on thick and elastic textiles.
2. Paste roller
The textile is pressed on the belt evenly and stable feeding is realized.
3. Crumple-free roller
Rear white roller stretches the fabric before reaching the belt.
Mimaki’ s print technologies for achieving beautiful printing
Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4) reduces banding
Mimaki’ s unique anti-banding technique MAPS4 is an advanced version of MAPS3. To prevent banding, swath boundaries are overprinted, whereas boundaries prone to banding are printed with fewer ink droplets.
Superior inkjet technology
Mimaki’ s superior inkjet technology accurately places the ink droplets without losing their perfect circularity. This ensures that texts, lines, and edges are clearly and sharply printed.
Uninterrupted printing solutions
Continuous operation support pack minimizes the downtime
The Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) detects nonfunctioning nozzles and automatically cleans them. If the nozzles fail to operate after cleaning, defective nozzles are replaced by non-defective ones until a technician arrives, and printing is continued. This feature enables uninterrupted print operations and continuous productivity.
Standard features of MBIS3 and UISS deliver continuous printing for a long time.
Large two liter ink packs are installed in MBIS3*1 for long-time continuous printing to reduce operating cost.
As soon as one ink container is empty, UISS*2 automatically provides ink from another container without any interruption to printing.
These systems supply inkcontinuously to ensure unattended continuous printing.

Printhead allows printing on various types of textile
While printing on raised fiber surface textiles, a high head gap setting is required to prevent contact between the printhead and the nap. In conventional models, such gap conditions reduce the accuracy of ink droplet placement. However, the printhead ejects ink droplets at a high speed to maintain the straightness of the droplet direction, and accordingly accurate ink droplet placement is achieved. This enables high-quality printing on napped or thick textiles.
Printing at speed of up to 54 square meters per hour
Adjustable speed from draft mode to high-quality, depending on customer’s needs.
* DD400, TP400, Rc400/500, Ac400 inks cannot print in draft mode.
An abundance of textile inks to choose from.
Textile pigment ink and sublimation dye ink can be loaded at the same time [Hybrid function].
Mimaki offers five ink types -sublimation, dispersant, pigment, reactive, and acid- to meet various application needs.*1
It is now possible to choose textile pigment ink (TP400) and sublimation dye ink (Sb420) at the same time*2, making possible to print with only one machine on cotton, hemp, polyester and similar textile.
|Ink type||Product name||Colour||Features||Applicable fabric|
|Sublimation dye ink||Sb420||Bl, M, Y, K, Lbl, Lm||Sublimation ink for direct printing. No transfer paper is required.||Polyester|
|Disperse dye ink||DD400||C, M, Y, K, R, Gray, Violet, Pink||Inks are fixed by heating and have high durability.||Polyester, nylon, acetate, and other fibers|
|Textile pigment ink||TP400||C, M, Y, K, Bl, R, Lk||Simple post-printing process. No steaming, washing and drying processes are required. Inks are fixed by only heating. *3||Cotton, hemp, and other fibers|
|Reactive dye ink||Rc400
|C, M, Y, K, Bl, R, Or, Lk||Inks produce vibrant colours, reproduce a wide gamut of colours, and have water resistance, light-fastness, and rub-fastness because of dyestuff molecule bonding with the fibers.||Cotton, hemp, silk, rayon, and other fibers|
|Acid dye ink||Ac400||C, M, Y, K, Bl, R, Or, Lk||Inks produce vivid and brilliant colours on animal fibers and synthetic protein fibers such as nylon.||Wool, leather, silk, nylon, and other fabrics|
*1 Please select an ink type depending on your intended use. The ink type cannot be changed after installation. With the hybrid function two types of inks (textile pigment and sublimation dye ink) can be loaded.
*2 Available from June 2017. Each textile pigment ink (TP400) and sublimation dye ink (Sb420) has 4 colours (C,M,Y,K).
*3 Steaming and washing processes may be needed depending on the type of print.
