Duggal Installs New Mimaki JV5-320S Dye Sublimation Printer for Fabrics & Textiles

Duggal Visual Solutions is proud to announce the installation of a new Mimaki JV5-320S dye-sublimation printer. The Mimaki JV5-320S utilizes eco-friendly water-based ink in a highly efficient paper transfer process that permanently embeds images into a variety of fabrics and textiles up to 126” wide.

Images are printed onto a special coated paper and then heat sublimated into textiles, which can later be washed and folded without a trace of lost image quality. This final product is scratch resistant, and many of the textiles are wrinkle resistant for easy packing and shipping. Printed textiles display a smooth, premium appearance in any environment, expanding the creative boundaries of other materials and processes.

With each printer head employing roughly 4 times as many nozzles as a conventional printer head, the JV5-320S prints at an impressively high 1440 dpi, enabling a rare combination of high-speed printing and impressive image quality. The printer features a superb 6.5-picoliter ink drop
size to ensure fine detail and the highest bleed-free dye-sub print quality available..

The Mimaki JV5-320S is phenomenal for substrates that are folded, washed, ironed, steamed or sewn. Ink is deeply embedded in the material, producing exceptionally vibrant color that will not crack or fade.

Duggal Visual Solutions is extremely excited for this opportunity to further showcase the highest quality and most ecologically sustainable technology while providing our clients with yet more graphic display options.
