TxF150-75 is Mimaki’s first DTF (Direct-to-Film) printer, packed with Mimaki technology. A safe and stable machine for your DTF print transfer sheets.

The TxF150-75 is Mimaki’s first DTF (Direct-to-Film) printer, packed with Mimaki technology to overcome the common ink ejection and ink sedimentation issues of current DTF printers in the market. Using genuine Mimaki heat transfer pigment ink, which acquired ECO PASSPORT certification, it assures skin friendly printing at the highest image quality. This unique combination ensures a highly reliable and stable DTF print workflow, and is combined with Mimaki’s guaranteed ongoing service and after purchase support.

A common issue with current DTF printers in the market occurs when air inside the ink bottle reaches the print head, causing ejection issues. White ink circulation. Another common issue with current DTF printers in the market is white ink clogging, causing ink supply issues. A continuous process which checks and detects for clogged nozzles and starts a cleaning cycle to recover them.

ECO PASSPORT certification...Mimaki’s PHT50 pigment ink has acquired OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT certification. Logos, images, labels, and personalisation to be placed on the chest, front, back, sleeves and inside of T-shirts, hoodies, work clothing, as well as promotional items including bags and caps.

PHT50 is a dedicated ink to print directly on DTF-specific film. It is then hot-melt powdered and heat-treated to create transfer sheets. The ink, available in 5 colours (CMYK + White), offers high density and vivid colours while printing the smallest details.  Mimaki’s guaranteed ink quality standards, in combination with the available colour profiles for the RIP, ensures a constant and predictable image quality for the long run.

Mimaki inks PHT50 are OEKO-TEX certified. ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products are suitable to print skin-friendly clothing and other textiles for end users. This certificate therefore constitutes an important decision-making element when purchasing inks for textile production.
