1102

Mimaki has released the MJF500-1800 industrial media handling system as an option for new and installed Mimaki TS500-1800 high-speed transfer sublimation printers. The new bulk roll media handling system adds versatility and expands the capabilities for high-speed dye sublimation printing.

Using the new bulk roll media handling system, Mimaki customers can become more productive by minimising material change interruptions while also increasing profitability by printing long production runs on cost-effective transfer paper for sublimation to a wide range of textiles.

The MJF500-1800 media handling unit is custom-built for Mimaki by Selco Inc., based in South Carolina (www.Selco-USA.com). It will be sold and serviced exclusively through Mimaki USA and its authorised representatives.

Features of the MJF500-1800 system include:
• Supports transfer paper rolls with an external diameter of up to 50,8cm (20 inches) on a 7.6cm (3-inch) core.
• Custom engineered to eliminate vibration and wobble that can occur at high print speeds, resulting in consistency and higher repeatability between jobs without sacrificing throughput.
• Includes air shaft providing increased accuracy by eliminating core slippage.
• Easy access for loading and unloading.
• Compact footprint.
• Includes casters for mobility and user-adjustable levelers for easy installation.
• Easy to use controls that automatically adjust to the speed of the printer.

The Mimaki TS500-1800 printer can print at speeds of up to 150.03sqm (1615 sqft) per hour on sublimation paper up to 190.50cm (75 inches) wide. Designed for the textile market, it features the Mimaki Degassing Module (MDM-20), a unique degassing system that improves dot placement accuracy.

In addition, the MDM-20 module enables the printer to use undegassed inks in two litre bottles, reducing costs over conventional degassed ink packs. It is particularly suited for sportswear and soft signage production, both applications that are seeing growth in run lengths appropriate for digital printing.
