Texprocess serves the international garment-manufacturing and textile processing industry, while Techtextil brings together technical textiles and nonwovens showing the full range of potential uses of textile technologies. Both trade fairs will take place May 9-12, 2017 at Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt am Main.
“The parallel Texprocess and Techtextil 2017 events provide Mimaki the advantage to demonstrate our textile inkjet print technologies and educate a wide audience on the value that Mimaki brings to the fast-growing textile markets,” said Uwe Niklas, GM marketing and sales of Mimaki Deutschland GmbH.
During the Texprocess trade fair, the Digital Textile Micro Factory will present a live demonstration of an integrated production chain for apparel. In collaboration with the German Institutes for Textile and Fibre Research in Denkendorf and a number of well-known companies in the textile sector, the micro-factory will demonstrate the entire networked production of clothing items – from the design stage to digital printing, automatic cutting out and fabrication. The Digital Textile Micro Factory will focus mainly on sport apparel.
Mimaki will show its TS300P-1800 with sublimation inks and the Tx300P-1800 printer with pigment inks during the large-format inkjet printing step of the micro-factory, involving sublimation printing on polyester and pigment printing on cotton and mixed fibres. The Tx300P-1800 direct textile inkjet printer delivers high-quality printing on a wide range of textiles and is well suited for applications such as fashion, furnishing, soft signage and exhibitions.
