XBM18/ XBM20 Industrial Textile Inkjet Printer


The XBM series is an industrial high-speed inkjet printer for economic, efficient, and eco-friendly textile printing. In comparison with traditional textile printing technology, the XBM series has no limits for the number of colors, no needs for making screens or cylinders, no work for color separations, no requirement for minimum print run, and the ability to easily print complex designs.


As a result of the compatibility with water-based dye and pigment inks, the XBM series is not only suited for artificial fibers, but also used for natural fibers. The digital prints with the characteristics of abrasion-resistance, water-resistance, and color-fastness are widely used in clothing, home textiles, and soft signage industries.


Equipped with industrial gray scale print heads of 300 dpi or 600 dpi native resolution, the XBM series achieves 8-color printing easily, which is commonly used in digital textile printing. In addition, spot color and light color can be also perfectly reproduced to fit for various applications. The XBM series is your ideal choice to satisfy the increasing demands for proofing, short run, and medium run jobs.

  • Linear print speed of up to 64.6 m/ hr.
  • Water-based disperse-, acid-, and reactive-dye inks; water-based pigment ink
  • Directly prints on cotton, cotton blends, linen, nylon, silk, and wool fabrics
  • Widely used in clothing, home textiles, and soft signage industries


Highlights:  

Release & Take-up System
Release & Take-up System precisely controls the tension and speed of unwinding and rewinding to keep feeding straight according to the thickness and elasticity of the textiles and roll diameters.

Belt Convey System
Belt Convey System ensures smooth and consistent feeding of textiles for high quality printing. Incorporated belt adhesive makes the textile flat on the belt to achieve perfect printing effect, even for elastic textile. Belt Washing Module washes off the residual fabrics and inks on the belt continuously and wipes off the water left on the belt. Built-in Belt Drying Mechanism ensures the temperature of a heating pipe to be accurately set between 25℃and  50℃ to keep the belt adhesive under the best condition.

Print Head Maintenance Module
Based on an all-in-one design concept, the small and compact Print Head Maintenance Module allows automatic purging, wiping and capping instead of manual maintenance.

Drying System (Optional)
The drying system is consisted of IR drying module and ink mist extraction device. The design of IR drying module enables stable and high-efficient radiation, resulting in rapid heat-up and uniform heating. The ink mist extraction device optimizes the interior environment and guarantees a haze-free print image. The efficient drying system achieves better ink absorption so that inks can be completely dried before fabrics are rewound.

Perfect and seamless repeated images

Step & Repeat. You just need to add a single repeat into ColorPRINT, rather than wasting time to create huge files containing many repeats in design applications. ColorPRINT also offers a lot of settings to adjust your repeats, such as shift size, mirror types and the controls of drop, slide or diagonal.

Step & Repeat

Seamlessly printing repeats. ColorPRINT can not only RIP overall image with many repeats for the best printing quality, but also RIP one repeat for high Ripping speed. Utilizing proprietary halftone algorithms, ColorPRINT will perfectly eliminate seams between repeats. PCS (Printer Control Software) can also use Ripped data only containing one repeat for printing and fit for the length and width of textiles.

Auto Fit Media

High-quality textile inkjet printing
Grayscale and light color printing. XBM series supports to print with up to 8 color inks including light colors. Amica’s proprietary Variable Droplet Size control technology combining with light color printing allows superior quality prints with soft skin tones, smooth gradient, and crisp and clear small-size texts and lines. You will not only benefit from lower ink consumption, but also obtain high-quality final prints.

8-color printing technology
including grayscale and light color printing
Advanced degas system. Dissolved gases will inevitably accumulate in the ink as a result of repeatedly pressurizing and decompressing the piezoelectric crystal. The hollow fibers membrane degas system of the XBM series efficiently eliminates the air bubbles that may impact on nozzle performance for consistent and reliable print quality.

Degas System
Negative Pressure System. With the help of a microprocessor, Active Negative Pressure System ensures high-speed and high-quality printing when print heads jet at higher firing frequency.

Consistent and brilliant color reproduction

ICC Color Management. The XBM series is compatible with ICC color management workflow. It guarantees excellent print quality and high efficiency with exquisite and consistent color.


Color book and special color. Color Book in ColorPRINT enables you to define a range of color swatches. After printing swatches on target fabrics and completing the finishing processes, you can choose your desired swatch and enter its color value into the Special Color Library in ColorPRINT or your design applications. All you do will empower you to print out exact colors efficiently and easily.


Spot color. The XBM series printer enables you to print spot colors with combinations of 4 or 6 process inks or spot inks. It helps you to meet even the most stringent corporate brand requirements while printing corporate logos and recognizing colors.
