Mini Jumbo Roll Unit
This is a feeding unit to load [Mimaki Vision Jet-X] transfer paper with a length of about 2,500m (8,202 ft). Reduces the cost per square meter and shortens the downtime due to media replacement in comparison to smaller transfer paper rolls.
22lb Ink Supply Unit
This has an ink supply unit to set a 10kg (22 lb) ink tank for a single color. Compared with the conventional 2L ink pack, the running cost is much reduced and the downtime due to ink replacement is shortened.
This is an extended heater installed to the lower part of the standard heater. The heater enhances the ink-drying capability and prevents the "blocking" of medium (caused by still wet ink obstructing the feeding of the media during high-speed print), thus ensuring stable production.
Feed Correction Function by Print Mode
Different feed correction values can be applied to each print mode.
Feed correction value for each print mode can be managed by machine setting. It is not necessary to perform feed confirmation for every mode and reduces the work of operator.
Variable Print Function Tailored to Applications for Apparel is Provided
Variable data such as uniform numbers and player names can be directly imported from CSV file to create print jobs. Text can also be processed using methods such as text outline fills and arched text layout.
Spot Color Inks
- Light black ink enables stunning gray-scale expression
- Because sublimation transfer print uses a high-density black ink, graininess or tone jump may occur in some cases. Light black ink adds to smooth print expression without graininess or tone jump.
- Fluorescent inks enable unique expression
The demand for fluorescent inks is rising in products such as uniforms and other sports apparel, fashion apparel representing Japanese cute pop culture, and eye-catching bright soft signage. To use fluorescent inks as the complementary colors of process colors, not to mention as spot colors, a multi-color mode (*) is provided. The fluorescent inks complement magenta and yellow to realize brighter colors.
