Highlights of the Mimaki TS500P-3200 Printer
Dedicated transfer paper printer
The TS500P was specifically engineered for the dye sublimation industry. Designed to print onto the thinnest of transfer paper, it includes a number of technologies that enable printing on thin transfer media, while maintaining extremely high quality output.
High gap printhead
Thin transfer papers – desirable because of more square footage per roll – are susceptible to cockling, creating media transport problems and potential head strikes. The TS500P printer employs a new printhead that ensures accurate ink droplet placement with a high head gap, enabling high quality printing on thin transfer paper.

Production print speeds
With 12 printheads, the TS500P printer delivers high productivity with print speeds of up to 1937 square feet (180 square meters) per hour in four-color mode. Print speeds of up to 1130 square feet (105 square meters) per hour can be achieved in six-color mode.
Media handling system
The Auto Media Feeder applies calibrated tension to the media, maintaining stable and precise media feed and take-up on rolls up to 286 lbs. (130 kg). This also reduces telescoping of the media during take-up and eliminates the potential for buckling or creasing during the calendar transfer process thereby accommodating long run, full roll transfers. Four independent post-print heaters reduces cockling for smoother transport to the take-up reel.
The TS500P printer can be connected to a network via Ethernet (or USB 2.0) connection, for flexibility in setting up the workflow. Via the Remote Event Notification feature, it can relay status information such as start, finish or error messages to a mobile phone or computer.
