Features of the Tiger-1800B
HIGH STABILITY AND RELIABILITY
The Mimaki Pro Series textile printers feature multiple innovative technologies that ensure the printer operates in a stable and reliable fashion, reducing downtime and wastage. With its standard configuration, the fabric path is optimised to safeguard against feeding, printing and winding issues, utilising a sticky belt in combination with a wrinkle sensor that avoids head strikes and a belt washing unit to avoid mark off.
A degassing module removes air bubbles from the ink in order to prevent nozzle failure. This stabilises printing whilst reducing cleaning and ink usage. Additionally, the Pro Series’ ink recirculation system prevents sedimentation and further optimises nozzle performance.
Individual wipers are installed for each print head to avoid colour mixing and increase cleaning speed. These wipers are automatically sprayed prior to and after cleaning which reduces daily maintenance and helps to prevent nozzle failure.

MULTIPLE INK OPTIONS
The Mimaki Pro Series can be configured to print with a range of textile inks, dependent on the fabric used.
Reactive dye-based inks are ideal for printing cotton, linen, silk and plant derived fibres such as hemp and jute. They have good light fastness as well as typically bright colours and exhibit good wash fastness, due to the chemical bond created between the dye and the pretreated fabric. After printing, these inks need to be post-treated by steaming and washing.
DYE SUBLIMATION INKS
Print designs onto polyester via the paper transfer method and achieve vibrant and long-lasting imagery for fashion, sportswear and decorative applications. Dye sublimation printing requires no fabric pre-treatment and is the ideal technology to take advantage of significant advances in polyester fabrics.

POWERFUL INBUILT SOFTWARE
Pre-installed on the Pro Series’ built-in PC, Mimaki’s Q Print software is used to adjust settings, operate the printer and set the order of print jobs.
Q Print Software
The software’s primary screen controls print ordering and printer settings, providing quick access to the most important functions of the Mimaki Pro Series.
The operation panel provides the capability to check upcoming jobs and printer settings, as well as reporting on completed print jobs and accessing cleaning functions.
Q Print software can be remotely accessed using the TeamViewer application via a network connection, to enable remote support and error recovery.
