Mimaki USA develops its first direct-to-film (DTF) printer, the TxF150-75, and heat transfer pigment ink, PHT50, for DTF. Sales of these products, targeting textile and apparel printing applications, will begin in summer.
The TxF150-75 is an inkjet printer with a maximum printing width of 80 cm for producing DTF print transfer sheets. The new PHT50 heat transfer pigment ink made for DTF applications consists of five colours (CMYK and white).
To overcome the ink ejection defects and white ink clogging that have plagued previous DTF printers, Mimaki has adopted a degassing ink design which employs aluminum packs to encase the ink, along with a white ink circulation function. This new printer also features Mimaki’s nozzle check unit and nozzle recovery system technologies to support stable operation.
