Mimaki Europe has developed a new direct-to-film (DTF) printer with higher print speeds than its existing technology.

The manufacturer said the TxF300-75 incorporates the stability and functionality of its first DTF printer, the TxF150-75, while delivering new levels of productivity with print speeds that are three times higher.

The device would suit larger companies requiring higher volumes of high-quality output, Mimaki said.

“We believe in giving customers choice and anticipating their needs, which is why we are expanding our DTF printer line-up hot on the heels of the inaugural system,” said Arjen Evertse, general sales manager at Mimaki Europe.

“The TxF300-75 has been designed to offer even greater productivity. The innovative 80cm [800mm] width introduced with our first DTF printer remains a feature of this new system, enabling customers to print more efficiently.”

The reliability of the Mimaki DTF printer series is achieved through the built-in ink circulation system that prevents white ink clogging, and a degassed ink pack, lowering the risk of poor inkjetting, Mimaki said.

The new printer also includes core Mimaki features, including NCU (Nozzle Check Unit) and NRS (Nozzle Recovery System) for stable, uninterrupted print production.

The DTF process also enables customers to print on a wider range of fabric such as cotton, mixed fabric, polyester, and dark coloured fabrics.

In line with Mimaki’s sustainability goals, the TxF300-75 utilises Mimaki’s PHT50 pigment inks which are Eco-Passport certified, validating their lower environmental impact and meeting the requirements for Oeko-Tex certification.

The machine will be commercially available in the UK and Ireland in Q4 2023 and will be distributed in these territories by Hybrid Services.
