The MTEX Blue with disperse inks for dye-sublimation was launched earlier this year and, like all MTEX digital textile printers, has heat fixation in-built, so print and heat fixing (sublimation) is completed in one smooth process, eliminating the need for a separate calendar. As an all-in-one solution, the MTEX Blue with disperse inks and in-line fixation will print and finish at a speed of 55sqm/hour and will retail in the Ireland at €62,000 plus VAT.

With the growing demand in the market for digital textile printing, the MTEX Blue offers superb quality at great speeds with punchy, vibrant colours and in-line fixation.

The MTEX Blue is a direct-to-textile polyester fabric printer with four CMYK heads with variable drop and adjustable head height to accommodate different thicknesses and types of fabrics and prints up to 1080dpi. The machine is perfect for printing applications for flag, front-lit and back-lit display, events and exhibitions and all soft signage applications as well as materials for interior soft furnishings and fire-retardant polyester fabrics.

The Blue offers a true fabric printing solution with no compromise to the integrity of the material after continuous use. With disperse dyes the inks are essentially ‘bonded’ into the fibres through the heat fixation (sublimation) process and so you can wash the fabrics, fold, handle and re-wash if needed, with absolutely no degradation of the image.

Bruising, marking, creasing and cracking are eliminated completely due to the image becoming part of the fabric compared to sitting on top of it, as with most other sign and display printers.

Stewart Bell, MD of MTEX Technologies UK says, “We’re very happy that the Mimaki reseller channel are now able to offer the MTEX Blue to their customers via Hybrid, this can only mean that printers have better and more flexible solutions to offer their target markets, than ever before.”
