Nagano, Japan, May 15, 2018 – Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Mimaki), headquartered in Nagano Prefecture Tomi City; President, Kazuaki Ikeda announced today the release of the Mimaki Vision Jet-X, a jumbo roll dye sublimation transfer paper with two widths (1,620 mm and 1,830mm) in May 2018.
The textile industry has a growing demand for mass production with quick response times. As a result, high speed digital textile printers and large-scale rolls of media offer a solution to the market. With the jumbo roll, the cost per square meter will be reduced by 33 percent compared to the standard dye sublimation transfer paper roll. *1
The Mimaki Vision Jet-X jumbo roll is 8,300m in length and 57gsm in weight. Although the paper is light weight, it will still be suitable for multiple applications with high to low ink densities such as sports apparel, soft signage, fashion, and home furnishings.
Furthermore, the Mimaki Vision Jet-X has properties of less shrinkage and drifting during printing. This allows for stable feeding which is crucial when using a jumbo roll for continuous printing.
The combination of this Mimaki Vision Jet-X jumbo roll and the Tiger-1800B/Tiger-1800B MKII*2 will satisfy the demands of the textile market.
