Tiger-1800B MkII

1. Selectable print mode to suit the production (from high-speed to high-quality) New!

For the realization of higher quality of print, 1,200 dpi print mode is added and the multi-pass is applied.
Tiger-1800B MkII will apply the production from the high-speed print regarding much importance for productivity to the high-quality print of beautiful image.

Plotting Method


1 pass mode: High speed printing is possible

In 1 pass mode all printheads are used. One print width is equivalent to two staggers, and printing at high speed is possible.


1 pass mode: High speed printing is possible

Multi-pass mode: High quality printing is possible


Multi-pass means to print a determined printing area by multiple times with different nozzles, which allows to suppress the cause of stripe and band and create a beautiful print.


Multi-pass mode: High quality printing is possible

2. Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS) delivers stable high-quality printing New!


In general, the boundary of pass to be a line is more likely to become the cause of bandings or color shading by just a small gap while printing.
The MAPS (Mimaki Advanced Pass System) can realize the beautiful printing with less banding and color-shifting by spreading the edge of pass and making the boundary as gradation.

Banding is found at the boundary of pass. Stripes and color-shifting are degrading the image quality significantly.


3. Droplet print mode selection suitable for print data


Depending on ink type and printing mode, there are 4 different droplet sizes. Droplet print mode can be choose to match the print data from high speed and standard mode.


[Multiple Droplet Size]

1) High speed (3 droplet size) mode


5pl 7pl 12pl

* Droplet size for reactive dye ink (MLRc500)

Ideal for fine design data such as thin lines and for light colors printing.


2) Standard (4 droplet size) mode


5pl 7pl 12pl 18pl

* Droplet size for reactive dye ink (MLRc500)

Ideal for printing where density is required such as monochromatic colors.


4. Nozzle recovery system (NRS): Consecutive operating solution to maintains the productivity New!


Nozzle problem which is not solved even if cleaning causes the production stop due to machine's downtime till the completing of repair by service staff. NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) is mounted as when a problem occurs in some nozzles, other nozzles will take place to continue to print. Without the operation stop to wait the arrival of service staff, the productivity can be maintained.
* NRS is to be applied from December 2018.  NRS may not be activated depending on print modes.


NRS: ON

5. Stable and reliable mechanism secures high-speed printing


1) Stable textile transportation mechanism


Textile transport security is achieved by the twin pressure roller shafts attached to the edge of the transportation belt. Textiles are uniformly applied without wrinkling onto the belt through the upper and lower rollers (Fig. 1), assuring stable textile transportation. Furthermore, the wrinkle and jam sensors detect textile wrinkling or creasing early in order to minimize potential damage to the printheads from collisions with raised or jammed textiles.

2) Degassing module and ink circulation mechanism maintain optimum ink conditions


Air bubbles generated in the ink can lead to missing nozzles because such bubbles act as cushions that decrease ink ejection power. To assure stable ink-jetting, each model of the Pro series has a degassing module that removes bubbles and constantly circulates ink.

3) Automatic wiper cleaning


Cleaning liquid spray nozzles

Cleaning liquid is automatically applied to each wiper before and after head cleaning. This liquid enhances the cleaning effect during the head-cleaning process, ensuring a clean wiper and reducing daily maintenance time. Furthermore, as each printhead has its own wiper, quick and effective cleaning is enabled while color mixing in the printheads is avoided.


6. Extensive optional units for accommodating various applications


Extensive lineup of optional devices to be selected according to the type and status of fabric and transfer paper, including the storage after printing.
