Mimaki JV5 digital textile belt printer

Built in our factory in Italy, the Mimaki JV5 digital textile belt printer offers innovation, efficiency and high quality.
With a virtual unlimited number of colors and a production speed up to 54 smq/hr our textile belt printer is perfect for high quality digital textile printing.
The secret of this high quality / high speed machine is in its main components,
based on the Mimaki JV5 , this is a fast and ideal printer for high quality production runs on any kind of textile substrate, up to 1.6 m.
Our production experiences gave us the means to add to this model the best improvements
and technical contents, resulting in top efficiency, productivity and high quality.
The textile belt printer with its speed potential and colour control, at a competitive price, offers opportunities to digital textile printing.

Print heads technology

A high quality plotter with 4 variable dot Epson printheads, with 1440 nozzles per head, and the Mimaki JV5 high
precision and our well engineered blanket system.

The distance from the print heads and the fabric surface is automatically controlled by a sensor.
A laser device checks on the fly each nozzle efficiency and prevents from print faults.

Belt drive precision

A precision twin roll unwind mechanism with photocell edge sensor guides the fabric precisely
and smoothly onto the blanket, whose glue is activated by heat, making the digital printer ideal to print also on elastic fabrics.
The adhesive blanket prevents even the smallest movement of the substrate once in position, and ensures perfect registration.

Rotating cleaning unit

A rotating brush washing unit with open water circuit prevents ‘back printing’ by removing the excess of ink from the adhesive blanket.
The entire washing unit is mounted on rails and can be extracted with ease for inspection and cleaning.

Infrared and fan for fabric drying

Using two hot air infrared dryers, located before the printed fabric rewind station, dries out the fabric, the other dryer found just after the washing unit
dries out all water traces from the blanket, and pre-heats it to optimal working temperature of the thermoplastic adhesive.

Open ink supply system

Having the all fabric printing capacity and compatible with acid, reactive, disperse and sublimatic inks, fed by an 8 color bulk ink bag system,
our Mimaki JV5 digital textile belt printer is the solution.

Heat fixation for direct Disperse printing
 

Heat fixation for digital textile printing, drum contact type

High productivity

Linear speed of our heat fixation unit is max. speed is up to 2m/min.
(This means max. production rate is 200m2/h for 1600mm version and 230m2/h for 1900mm version.)

No fumes, No smell

Due to high production rate and high temperature, the direct disperse process produces large amounts of gas.
The ADC (Air Dust Cleaner) captures all dust and fumes perfectly, with proprietary carbon filter and micro glasswool filter technology.
Also direct disperse ink is clean and it can reduce fumes by 50%.

Heat control

Heat control in heating zone of the sublimation system is extremely important for stable and superior quality control.
Our Heat Fixator has PID control of temperature to maintain stable target value.
Also can control the max. heat capacity, so it is possible to reduce the heat capacity (KW) during slow operation under inline operation mode.
Linear speed of feeding also take effect on temperature. Air flow rate is another factor which can make effect on temperature.
So it is important to control the ideal flow rate, just a little faster than the value that all fume
can be captured from the chamber. Air flow rate can be controlled by 2 kinds
of circle doors in tube and chamber.

No worries about maintenance

Using the Textile heat fixation unit requires almost no change or repair to the parts, motors, heaters, chains, rolls and sensors are very strong and you can use them for more than 5 years without problem.

Heat fixation machine

You can save high investment for press machines and running cost of papers by using the drum-contact type system. The system enables the same or higher production speed of the highest printing speed of any printers.
The drum-contact type heat fixation unit is the perfect machine for direct disperse printing due to the oil heated drum that spreads the heat even on all the fabric.

- Air dust collector is combined together in bottom position of the machine
- Linear speed control by a pair of rubber rolls in take-up system
- Tension control unit is available in take-up system
- Energy loss and media loss are minimized with maintaining the production speed
- 30˜44 minutes of warming up time
- easy to operate and maintain

Steam-X Digital Textile Printing Fixation
 

 

Inkjetprinter.com : Steamex and Steam-X  Steam Fixation
Steam fixation for digital textile printing


Steam-XL Steam Fixation unit

Steam-X 1850 RDA

In a world first, the Steam-X has revolutionised the digital inkjet textile printing industry. The Steam-X is the missing link that has allowed for the continuous digital textile inkjet printing and curing of fabrics.

Extremely versatile, the Steam-X cures fabrics printed with any type of digital printing dyes, i.e. acid, disperse and reactive.

The Steam-X can be used with any digital inkjet printer available. The printing speeds of the inkjet printers are not compromised. The fabric travel through the Steam-X is synchronised with the printing of the inkjet printer.

Simple Smart Printing

Digital inkjet printer is the most recent innovation in the textile industry, however the curing of fabrics has been performed separately after the printing process has been completed, therefore causing delays in finishing. Steam-X is the solution, which has streamlined the process into one continuous procedure. The Steam-X features a fabric feed-in mechanism, with edge control alignment, that feeds fabric directly into an inkjet printer. Following the printing process, the fabric travels through the steam chamber of the Steam-X, where temperatures of up to 180°C are reached and therefore curing of the printed dyes is completed. Following the steam process the fabric is rolled up automatically.

Superior Steam Curing

Steam-X automatically feeds fabric into the inkjet printer, then through its built-in steam chamber where the dye is fixed. The fabric then feeds out of the unit and is automatically rolled - all in one continuous process.


Whether you're using reactive, disperse or acid dyes, Steam-X cures it all in the same simple process. The unit is operated from a compact control with LCD display, with clear step by step instructions, the temperature is controlled and regulated using a temperature controller with digital output. Also included is a 20 litre water tank, steam generator and stainless steel steam chamber.

Optional features:

Monitoring software to track the performance of the Steam-X in real time. Outputs such as temperature, humidity and production performance collected and via a computer link can be stored in Excel file format.
