Hybrid introduce new Mimaki DTF printer to Sign & Digital UK line-up
Following the success of its recent debut, Mimaki’s exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland, Hybrid Services, has announced the addition of the TxF150-75 direct-to-film (DTF) inkjet printer to its line-up at Sign & Digital UK 2023. The new model is specifically designed for those entering or expanding in the apparel decoration sector and is already proving a popular choice for those looking for a timesaving, stable, and productive solution.
Offering a versatile garment decorating solution, the Mimaki DTF works on cotton, polyester and polyester blended materials, and the print can be applied to both light and dark coloured fabrics. Delivering a timesaving workflow compared to other garment printing methods, the new TxF150-75 removes the labour-intensive process of plate creation in screen printing and the required weeding in traditional vinyl heat transfer.
With Mimaki’s reputation for reliability, the TxF150-75 includes a built-in ink circulation system and degassed ink pack design to ensure consistent printing is maintained. A nozzle check unit and nozzle recovery system further enable the printing process to be carried out with minimal user intervention and efficiency.
DTF printing provides an easy production process. The design is printed directly onto a special film, then sprinkled with hot-melt powder, and once heated and dried, the print is ready to be applied to the fabric using a heat press. Guaranteeing safety and environmental commitments, Mimaki inks are OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT certified.
“We’re delighted to add the new Mimaki DTF printer to our line-up for Sign & Digital UK,” states Duncan Jefferies, Hybrid’s Head of Marketing and Business Development. “This innovative device will sit alongside a broad range of our very latest technology on the Hybrid stand, and provides a real alternative for the apparel sector that addresses key challenges seen with other technologies.”
The Sign & Digital UK exhibition runs from 21-23 March 2023 and the Hybrid Services / Mimaki stand can be found at the entrance to the show.
