Emphasizing the superior technical features of TS55-1800, Mimaki Eurasia General Manager Arjen Evertse said that the product will open the doors of a new era in digital textile printing. Evertse; “The unique features of our revolutionary textile machine will be introduced to the market in Sign Istanbul 2018 for the first time in the EMEA region, and TS55-1800 will cause a revival in the textile market. Designed and developed from scratch, TS55-1800 will be first choice of those who want to come forward in the competition for this segment, where competition is intense.” Evertse underlined textile manufacturers will reach the high-quality, industrial efficiency and low operational costs they look in printing with this machine.
TS55-1800 and unattended printing
One of the key features of the TS55-1800 is the optional use of new Mini Jumbo Roll unit; that can continuously feed 2,500 linear meters of heat transfer paper to the printer. This enables customers to substitute the use of Small Plotter Rolls with Mini Jumbo Rolls; which can save them over 20% in print media cost. Furthermore, Mini Jumbo Rolls of Mimaki Vision Jet-X transfer paper; supplied by Neenah Coldenhove, will be offered as package deal with the TS55-1800. The 2,500 m1 Mini Jumbo Rolls are the ideal way to upgrade to high-volume unattended textile printing. In addition, the printer is fitted with the unique Mimaki Nozzle Check and Recovery System and 10-liter ink tanks; which ensure failsafe continuous operation for extended operational periods, such as overnight-unattended printing.
Mimaki offers its customers a high return on investment with the TS55-1800; that will be sold at a very competitive price-point. “It will outdistance its competitors in its segment comparing the price ratio with the quality. We offer the best specifications for the best price to the users,” said Arjen Evertse; and continued saying textile professionals can reduce their operational cost and double their annual profit by using TS55-1800. Evertse; “There will be a real revolution with the TS55-1800 in the textile industry; which has been advancing with similar technologies for many years. This is truly revolutionary; and we believe it will make a huge contribution to the analogue-to-digital transformation underway in the industry; and it will be an indispensable investment for preparing the industry for tomorrow and taking the competition forward.”
