Features
The features of the machine are described below. Together with the method of operation of the
machine explained in this manual, they help you understand how to use the machine properly.
Use a discharge liquid
Print the original discharge liquid directly on T shirt, and perform heat treatment to take off some
colors. Also, discharge composition printing is available.
• Only the dyed cotton by a reactive dye ink allows for discharging. According to reactive dye
inks, its effects are all different.
Use the pigment ink for textile
The new pigment ink for textile allows for printing directly T shirt.
It allows for the heat treatment (simple post treatment) without media preparation. It is kind to the
skin and remains breathable and absorbent.
High-Speed printing
New piezo electric heads, the staggered-layout print head provides more attractive, faster printing,
and allows ultra high-precisions 6-head 1-way printing.
High-precision printing and high-quality images
The machine is capable of printing high-quality images with a maximum resolution of 720 dpi.
Head height adjustable to 50mm maximum
Can print on T-shirts and other materials placed around a board.
Prints on extra wide work of 1870mm maximum
Up to 1870mm wide work can be set for printing over up to a1860mm wide area.
Indication of the INK Remains
Since the amount of ink that remains can be checked even during operation of the machine, you can
use the ink and medium without waste.
- vi -
Features
High-speed interface
The "IEEE-1394" interface allows for high-speed data reception from the computer.
Easy “origin” setting
The cross-shaped LED pointer allows easy visual setting.
Prevents the head and work collision
When the work is too thick or the head height is set too low, the head protective sensor senses the
head height and avoids the head collision accordingly.

Precautions in handling the ink cartridge
• Use the specified ink.
Using any ink type other than the exclusive one can cause a trouble.
Remember that the user shall be charged for a repair to correct any
damage resulting from the use of ink other than the exclusive type.
• If ink settles on the skin or clothes, immediately wash it off with soap
and water.
If you get ink in your eyes, immediately wash your eyes with a lot of
clean water. Then, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
• Do not shake the ink cartridge violently. Shaking or turning it roughly
can cause leakage of ink.
• Never disassemble the ink cartridge.
• The ink cartridge cannot be refilled. Refilling the ink cartridge can
cause a trouble. Remember that MIMAKI assumes no responsibility
for any damage caused by the use of the ink cartridge replenished with
ink.
• Be sure to store ink cartridges in a cold and dark place.
• If the ink cartridge is moved from a cold place to a warm place, leave it
in the room temperature for three hours or more before using it.
• Be sure to thoroughly consume the ink in the ink cartridge, once it is
opened, within six months. If an extended period of time has passed
after opening the cartridge tank, plotting quality would be poor.
• Be sure to store ink cartridges in a cold and dark place.
• Store ink cartridges in a place that is out of the reach of children.
• Request an industrial waste processor for processing of empty cartridges.
• Do not touch or stain the contacts of the ink cartridge as doing so may
cause damage to the print circuit board.
• Do not discharge printing for baby clothes as some of formaldehyde
remains on a fabric after post treatment by heat press. Wash out any
cloths at least one time to remove residual formaldehyde after post
treatment by heat press.

Precautions in handling the work
Carefully observe the following when handling the work.
• Work thickness
When setting the work used, adjust the head height.
Otherwise, the work and/or the head can be damaged.
• Expansion and contraction of the work
Do not use sheet types of work immediately after unpacking.
The work can expand and contract due to room temperature and humidity.
The work have to be left in the atmosphere in which they are to be used for
30 minutes or more after unpacked.
• Warps of work
If you want to use board-shaped works, always use flat boards.
• Other tips
• The device has a moving table. The work must be fixed to the table
during operation. If necessary, fix the work with a tape.
• Maintain a sufficient head gap when printing on a fluffy material. If the
print head nozzle is allowed to touch the fluff, it may be blocked and
affect the print quality.
- 1.12 -
Direct printing on a cloth
• To minimize color variations, maintain constant humidity and temperature while printing directly on a cloth.
1. When using the Pigment ink for textile (TPig ink)
•
•
No special preparation is necessary. Print on a dry cloth.
Print twice to ensure higher color fastness.
•
The post-treatment condition varies by the material of the heating process.
Determine the optimum condition carefully.
REFERENCE
Press
T-shirt material
160oC / 60 second
Cotton broad cloth
190OC / 40 second
2. When using the dye ink
•
Pre-treatment and post-treatment of the cloth are necessary according to the
acid dye ink (silk, nylon, etc.), reactive dye ink (cotton, etc.) or disperse dye
ink (polyester, etc.).
•
Refer to the Ink guidance.
The machine can print on a wide variety of cloths and color stability, fastness
and tones can vary significantly by pre-treatment in particular. Use your own
judgment in deciding pretreatment and post-treatment and introduce changes
as deemed necessary.
3. When using the discharge liquid (discharge ink)
•
After discharge printing, perform post treatment (heat press) immediately. If
it takes some time after discharge printing and some water is dried off, it may
reduce the effectiveness of discharging.
•
Please perform post treatment within 5 minutes after discharge printing.
Set out the optimal condition according to status of use after discharge
process.
Reference: heat press 150 for 60 seconds
•
Some unreacted discharge liquid still remains in fabric after discharge printing and press heat. Those remaining liquid may cause turning into slight
yellow.

Routine maintenance
Be sure to conduct maintenance works for the machine when necessary or periodically so as to use
the device for a long time while keeping its printing accuracy.
When the machine is left unused for a long period of time
• Be sure to turn off the power of machine. (
page 2.24)
• Remove the work which setting on the table.
Precautions during cleaning
• Never disassemble the machine. Disassembling the machine can
result in electric shock hazards and breakage of the machine.
• To prevent electric shock hazard and damage to the machine, do not
allow moisture to get inside.
• Turn off power and detach power cable before doing any maintenance.
• Benzine, thinner and chemical agents containing abrasives.
Such materials can deteriorate or deform the surface of the cover.
• Do not apply lubricating oil or the like inside the machine. Such materials can cause the printer mechanism to fail.
• Especially when printing to untreated fabric without preparation by TP
ink, it may cause adherence of cotton waste, dirt, and dust around the
nozzle or the station cap. With some dust around the nozzle and the
wiper, it may cause some trouble on cleaning. Clean the head nozzle,
station cap, and wiper every time when the operation is terminated.
- 3.2 -
Routine maintenance
Maintenance for frame components
If the frame components of the machine have become dirty, wipe off frame with soft cloth using
water or neutral detergent diluted with water, squeeze it and wipe the frame components clean.
Clean the table also as dust may cause ink fly-bend or dropping.
Cleaning Tools :
• Neutral detergent
• Soft cloth (quantity)
Washing ink from the slider surface
The ink may gel and collect under the slider after a long use. The ink droplets may grow in
size and smear the work as a result. To prevent this problem, wet the supplied cotton swab in the
cleaning liquid (A29) and use it to remove the ink from under the head in regular intervals.
• Do not use the cotton swab on the head nozzles. The brush may damage the nozzles and cause poor ink delivery.
Cleaning Tools :
• Cleaning liquid (A29)
• Cotton swabs
