The new high-gap printhead achieves high-quality printing on cockled transfer papers.
Low-cost thin transfer papers are liable to cockling*, which affects the quality of the printhead. To prevent the contact between the printhead and raised surface, a high head gap setting is required. In conventional models, such gap conditions reduce the accuracy of the ink droplet placement. The new TS300P-1800 employs a new printhead that ensures accurate ink droplet placement with a high head gap, thereby enabling high-quality printing on thin papers.
* Cockling: Wrinkling of the media surface because of ink absorption.
Cockling-reduction transfer mechanism
The cockling-reduction transfer mechanism enables high-quality printing on a wide range of transfer papers, from the low-cost thick papers. This high media compatibility reduces the operating cost of the TS300P-1800 without losing the print quality.
① Vacuum media hold-down system beneath the platen
The media attach to the platen by vacuum suction. Under suction, the cockled media surfaces are smoothed out.
② Larger media press plates
Enlarged plates moderate cockling by reducing media uplift and hold down the media immediately after printing.
③ Auto Media Feeder (AMF)
The AMF automatically applies the right tension to the media, thereby maintaining stable media feeding and take-up.

Sb411: High-performance, low-cost sublimation transfer ink
Affordable ink price reduces production cost
The Sb411 costs 20% less than the conventional ink "Sb53".
This competitive price improves the performance of businesses.
Stable ink flow and jetting
The Sb411 has superior re-solubility properties. Therefore, dried inks adhered around nozzles are easily wiped off with cleaning solutions. The improved resolvability also ensures more stable ink jetting, thereby improving the print production yield. Moreover, because the ink stability is improved, fewer regular cleanings are required, further contributing to cost reduction.
Beautiful and vibrant print results
This low-sedimentation ink achieves stable and beautiful printing.
Moreover, heat-press transfer printing yields vibrant colors by virtue of the high-density printing.
Low smoke emission
The Sb411 emits little smoke, thereby improving the work environment and increasing the work efficiency during heat-press transfer printing.
Debut! Fluorescent color ink! (Sb410: fluorescent pink, fluorescent yellow)
A broader choice of designs with fluorescent colors.
High value print and rich expression.
Your graphic designs and photo images will stand out with neon color print.
Mimaki' s print technologies for achieving beautiful printing
Superior inkjet technology
Mimaki’s superior inkjet technology accurately places the ink droplets without losing their perfect circularity.
This ensures that texts, lines, and edges are clearly and sharply printed.
Mimaki Advanced Pass System 4 (MAPS4) reduces banding
Mimaki’s unique anti-banding technique MAPS4* is an advanced version of MAPS3.
To prevent banding, swath boundaries are overprinted, whereas boundaries prone to banding are printed with fewer ink droplets.

Uninterrupted printing solutions
Continuous operation support pack minimizes the downtime
The Nozzle Check Unit (NCU) detects nonfunctioning nozzles and automatically cleans them. If the nozzles fail to operate after cleaning, defective nozzles are replaced by non-defective ones until a technician arrives, and printing is continued. This feature enables uninterrupted print operations and continuous productivity.
Mimaki Bulk Ink System 3 (MBIS3) for long-time continuous printing
Large ink packs (2 liters) can be installed in the MBIS3. The standard “MBIS3” enables long-time continuous printing at reduced operating cost.
Maximum print speed (115 m2/h) achieves high productivity
The TS300P-1800 optimizes the printing speed and quality to produce the desired print results. For this purpose, it provides a wide range of printing modes, from the draft printing mode (which operates at the maximum speed of 115 m2 /h) to high-quality printing mode.
TxLink3 Lite or RasterLink6 is bundled according to user's request.
High-performance software RIP produces a new color expression.
TxLink3 supports the RGB color model and raster images, which are widely used in digital textile printing.
In addition, useful function modules, including color replacement, step, and repeated pattern creation are also provided.
Multicolor profile creation allows printing using spot colors and delivers a wider color gamut and higher color reproducibility compared with four-color process printing.
Software RIP combining usability and high performance
It is meaningless if high performance software would be hard to use ...
The new RasterLink6 is focused on being simple and usable.
With its many new functions, “Software RIP for Everybody” has been achieved and provides for more professional and advanced finished products through its universal ease of use.
