Mimaki says its new TS55-1800, a 76.3-inch, dye-sublimation transfer inkjet printer, offers low running costs and unattended continuous printing for the mid-level and high-end markets.

The TS55-1800 prints with the new Sb610 inks at a maximum output of 1,506 sqft/h (140 sqm/h). These inks hold the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex certification, meeting specific requirements with regard to sustainability, safety and compliance. Additionally, two new optional units, a mini jumbo roll and 10 kg ink supply, have been introduced on TS55-1800.

The mini jumbo roll is a feeding unit to load the 64-inch Mimaki Vision Jet-X transfer paper, supplied by Neenah Coldenhove, with a length of about 8,202 feet. The company says the system is ideal for ensuring high-volume, unattended printing for longer production runs, saying it also decreases the running paper costs per square foot in comparison to the normal plotter rolls.

The TS55-1800 is equipped with several of Mimaki’s Core Technologies, including the Mimaki Advanced Pass System (MAPS) for greater productivity and print quality by eliminating visible banding. As well, the Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) automatically monitors the performance of the printhead and detects clogged nozzles, while the Nozzle Recovery System (NRS) allows the operator to substitute unproductive nozzles to avoid poor image quality or service calls.
