Textile inkjet printer with belt conveying system
Operability is improved with newly installed software
Nagano, Japan, January 20 2021
Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. (Headquartered in Nagano Prefecture, Tomi City; President, Kazuaki IKEDA) engaged in industrial inkjet printers, cutting plotters and 3D printers, announced the release of "Tiger-1800B MkIII", a textile inkjet printer with belt conveying system, available from February 2021.
The "Tiger-1800B MkIII" is a new model added the "Mimaki Printer Controller" of new touch-screen operation software to the "Tiger-1800B MkII", that pursues speed and beauty based on the enhanced stability and high accuracy of print technology which results in high-quality printing.
As this new software has been installed on the PC in which the machine unit is already built in, it will be activated automatically when you start operation and will enable you to set up, operate and output data with one-touch simple operation. Even for such a trouble that has tended to occur because of a missing nozzle, it can be improved now with the use of the nozzle recovery function from software. This function leads to reduction in the down time of the machines because the printing operation can be continued until the printer is repaired by a service representative.
The Tiger-1800B MkIII combines high productivity with a maximum print speed of 385 m²/h and long operating stability by means of 10kg ink tank for low running costs, allowing you to choose the print speed that best suits your jobs, from high speed printing focusing on productivity to high quality printing pursuing beautiful printing. Depending on ink type and print mode, four different droplet sizes are available to achieve smoother color printing.
In addition, the advanced high-performance RIP software "TxLink4" supports the Tiger-1800B MkIII. You can expect to increase productivity by making use of such functions of TxLink4 as "Parallel RIP function" that can be performed in parallel for multiple of print data and "Variable print function" that is tailored to applications for apparel. Introduction of "16-bit rendering" which is upgraded from 8-bit version enables smoother and more beautiful gradation expression. Newly supporting of 10 GB-based Ethernet controller by Tiger-1800B MkIII can also deal with high-speed data transfer.
Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. will continue providing our customers with optimum products for their work operations and installation circumstances.
1. It is equipped with Mimaki Printer Controller
Touch-screen based printer operation software is installed on our system. Because this printer has been designed for one touch ease of operation, you can set up, operate it and output data from it with one-touch simple operation.
2. "Nozzle Recovery System" for continuous operation
When any clogging of a certain nozzle cannot be solved even after cleaning is performed for it, such nozzle will not be used, and another normal nozzle will be used instead (nozzle recovery function).
In this way, it becomes possible to perform the ongoing print job continuously.
Creation of nozzle recovery data is also available now from the touch panel.
3. Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4) is supported
Smooth prints can be realized by printing pass boundaries fading in gradation, while banding (horizontal stripes), uneven color, or glossy streak can be reduced.
4. Ethernet 10GB-T supported
Added support for 10GB-based Ethernet controller. Print data transfer at higher speed is now available.
