Mimaki launches first DTF printer

Mimaki, specializing in industrial inkjet printers, cutting plotters and 3D printers, has developed its first direct-to-film (DTF) printer "TxF150-75" and heat transfer pigment ink "PHT50" for DTF.

The new inkjet printer has a maximum printing width of 80 cm for producing DTF print transfer sheets. The printer also features Mimaki's NCU (Nozzle Check Unit) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) technologies that support stable operation. They ensure continuous printing without stopping the operation to support customers' productions.

According to Mimaki, in recent years, there has also been a growth of direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, which uses inkjet printers to print designs directly on garments and fabrics. DTG printing does not require plates and can be used for full-color printing, but it does require fabric preprocessing and manual handling by the operator at each printing steps.Under these market circumstances, DTF printing eliminates the need for plate preparation and weeding, which have been difficulties in conventional printing methods. Since it enables unattended printing process operation, it is rapidly being adopted in the market as a technology that contributes to labor savings.
