Textile: Mimaki Europe closes first sale of Tiger-1800B

Mimaki reported that it had its biggest and most successful presence ever at FESPA 2017 with two stands totaling 534 square meters. At the show, Mimaki Europe also introduced Yuji Ikeda as its new Managing Director. After spending seven years at Mimaki Europe, Ikeda returned to Japan to take on the role of Senior General Manager of Corporate Planning, where he served for several years before returning to lead Mimaki Europe. Ronald van den Broek, General Manager Sales at Mimaki Europe, has reported that Mimaki’s new high-speed direct-to-textile Tiger-1800B printer was well received. It was the first time that Mimaki showcased the printer with sublimation ink after demonstrating the machine with reactive ink in previous shows. “In fact”, van den Broek adds, “textile company Estampados Hermanos Perez located in Mataró, Spain, and supported by Mimaki distributor Digidelta, purchased the printer from the show floor.” In the Textile Hall, where the high-speed direct-to-textile Tiger-1800B with sublimation ink took centre stage, Mimaki also had on display the award-winning Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers, updated to simultaneously load both textile pigment and sublimation dye inks. This enables the use of a single printer to print directly on a wide range of textiles without the need to change out ink systems. This new technology is a breakthrough that will improve productivity and increase flexibility for these Mimaki textile printers. Digitally printed textile examples ranged from apparel and accessories to home décor. “In the textile market,” van den Broek states, “there is growing demand for shorter run and customized textile products. The Mimaki line of textile printers will enable fashion designers and interior decorators to quickly and cost-effectively meet these needs with very high quality. The printers are also being used for sampling, speeding time to market without breaking the bank.”
