STICKY BELT TRANSPORT SYSTEM INCORPORATING BELT WASHING FACILITY
The ‘Sticky Belt’ transport system ensures consistent, high quality printing on stretchable or
thin fabrics and is further enhanced by the following additional functions:
1.Built-in Belt Washing Mechanism is designed to automatically remove
struck-through ink residue from the belt. The mechanism also helps prevent
any accumulation of dirt on the belt, thereby maintaining the adhesive qualities
of the belt.

Correct Feed
Control (CFC)
(NB: when not required, this function can be turned off to prolong the life of the adhesive belt)
2.Improved Correct Feed Control (CFC) incorporates a high resolution encoder unit to
measure any belt movement more accurately enabling more effective control of feed
length and drive rollers.

•While printing on raised fibre surface textiles, a high head
gap setting is required to prevent contact between the
printhead and any raised fibres. (FIG.1)

Inaccurate placement of the ink
droplets leads to blurring in the printed
text and line.
•On more conventional models, restricted head gap reduces
the accuracy of ink droplet placement. (FIG.2)
•The Tx300P-1800B employs a new advanced printhead
with a high head gap to ensure accurate ink droplet
placement, thereby enabling high-quality printing on a wide
variety of fabric types. (FIG.3)
•The head gap is now fully adjustable from 2mm up to 7mm
in 0.05mm increments, which enables printing on a wide
range of different thicknesses of fabric.

At the high head gap, beautiful print
results are delivered on the raised
fibre surface by the new printhead.
At the low head gap, the printhead
tends to contact with raised fibres, and
thereby the print quality is deteriorated.

on print conditions.

Depending on your print requirements, washing may be recommended.
Unique dual ink capability
Continuous Uninterrupted Printing Features
With the innovative dual ink capability, Tx300P-1800 can simultaneously load both textile
pigment and sublimation dye inks. This enables the use of a single printer to print directly
on a wide range of textiles without the need to change out ink systems.
Nozzle Recovery Function
In the event of a nozzle malfunction not being repairable by the use of the maintenance
function, printing can continue by the use of another nozzle, without any loss of productivity
or a reduction in image quality.
Mimaki’s TP400 textile pigment ink and Sb420 sublimation dye ink do not generally require
steaming and washing in the post-treatment process, so there is no need for a large space,
a huge quantity of water, or special expertise in handling the printed fabric. All that is
required is the printer and colour fixing equipment.
If ink is not being ejected,
the light passes through.

Uninterrupted Ink Supply
System (UISS)
Two ink bottles per colour
can be set with the UISS
function. When an ink
bottle runs out, another
bottle of the same colour
automatically starts
supplying ink.
1. Specify the ink colour for each ink slot.
2.Set the total ink limit
Print the ink limit chart, then set the maximum ink volume.
3.Measure the ink density error
(Adjustment of ink density gradation) Each ink density is measured. Density is automatically
calculated and adjusted.
4.ICC profile creation
Measurement of the configuration chart printed from Colour GPS, The profile is automatically created.
