At Fespa 2018 in Berlin, Mimaki showed textile printing from a single source with pre-treatment, printing, steaming, washing and production management.
It was demonstrating the Rimslow Series, a complete, end-to-end digital textile and apparel printing ecosystem. The ability to acquire a complete system from a single supplier makes it easier for businesses to enter the digital textile and apparel printing market, and for existing textile and apparel businesses to add digital printing to the mix to complement conventional textile printing processes.
“Currently, businesses wishing to participate in the digital textile printing revolution must purchase printers and pre- and post-treatment solutions from different manufacturers,” said Ronald van den Broek, General Manager Sales at Mimaki Europe. “Not only is this inconvenient, but there can be implementation issues with no single source of responsibility to resolve them. Following our acquisition of Australian company Rimslow last year, Mimaki now has all the necessary components in place, including pre-treatment of fabrics, digital printing, and steaming and washing post-print with the Rimslow Series.”
