Pre- and post- processing equipment for digital textile printing

Rimslow Series

Nagano, Japan, May 15, 2018

Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. (Mimaki), Headquartered in Nagano Prefecture, Tomi City; President, Kazuaki IKEDA announced today the launch of the "Rimslow Series", their new pre- and post- processing equipment for digital textile printing comprising a new pre-treatment unit, two steamers and one washer newly added to their product lineup in October 2018. These products are from the Australian company Rimslow Global Pty. Ltd., which Mimaki acquired in November 2017.

For textile printing by an inkjet printer, it involves the following four processes;
1. Pre-treatment: Preventing ink bleeding by applying a treatment agent to the fabric.
2. Printing: Printing with an inkjet printer.
3. Steaming: Fixing the printed ink onto the fabric.
4. Washing: Washing off extra ink and treatment agent from the fabric.

The current textile digital printing is requiring purchasing printers and pre- and post- processing devices from different manufacturers.
The production conditions depending on the fabric, ink and production place will be one of the important factors which control the finished quality (print penetration, image quality, color density, and dyeing property) and fixing up those conditions required much cost, time and knowledge.

The workflow of textile printing by inkjet printer


Pre-treatment-->Printing-->Steaming-->Washing

By providing pre-treatment unit, printer, steamer and washer as the completed system from Mimaki, it is possible to offer a total solution including equipment, recommended production conditions and know-how and easier for customers to proceed a new entry into digital printing business and in-house production.
As well, regarding direct sublimation printing, currently purchasing a pre-treated fabric was necessary but using the pre-treatment unit of "Rimslow Series" can realize the in-house work of pre-treatment process.
The unification of all the required equipment into Mimaki products will minimize the down time of machines for saving both time and money, as everything from initial consultation to production troubleshooting can be all handled by Mimaki.
