Three new printers to be unveiled at
exhibition including first LED models.
Another well know name, Mutoh, has released details of three new printers which it will unveil at Fespa Digital 2014, Munich, Germany, 20-23 May, (Hall B1 - booth 550). The new products include a compact 24” wide roll-to-roll printer and two LED UV printer models, the company’s first foray into LED UV printing. This new development extends Mutoh’s existing product portfolio of wide format printers - for sign & display, dye sublimation and direct textile applications - with a new category, one it deems particularly environmentally responsible, specifically targeted at specialty and industrial short run digital print applications. The new Mutoh printer models will be presented at the exhibition alongside the 64” wide ValueJet X-series printers which were launched at the end of January 2014.
ValueJet 628 – VJ-628
- ValueJet 628 is Mutoh’s first 24” (610 mm) wide roll-to-roll printer developed for commercial print, signage and print-to-cut applications. Equipped with the latest generation micro piezo print head, it’s a compact 8 channel printer which Mutoh says delivers high quality prints for indoor & outdoor applications.
ValueJet 426UF – VJ-426UF
- The ValueJet VJ-426UF is a desktop A3+ flatbed LED UV printer that allows direct printing on a wide variety of solid materials and objects up to a thickness of 7 cm. It utilises Mutoh’s newly developed LED UV VOC-free inks and offers a maximum media size of 483 mm x 329 mm.
- This new multi-purpose ValueJet model is specifically targeted at short run personalisation of gifts, packaging prototypes, awards, specialty industrial items, as well as labels, decals, signs, etc.
ValueJet 1626UH – VJ-1626UH
- The VJ-1626UH is a 64” (165 cm) wide hybrid LED UV printer which prints on a wide variety of rigid and flexible materials, including heat-sensitive substrates. Compatible media types include ABS, Alu-board, PC, PS, PET, PVC – PMMA (acrylic) PP and Glass. The printer utilises Mutoh’s new VOC-free LED UV C, M, Y, K, white and varnish inks to produce high quality graphics suitable for short viewing distances such as trade show graphics, POP, interior decoration, small lot packaging prototypes, banners, posters, etc. Mutoh added that the new printer is equipped with a set of innovative features to streamline the production workflow. It also pointed out that the printer can produce various specialty finishes on prints due to custom varnish and embossing possibilities.
“We are very excited to present our extended product portfolio at Fespa Digital. Our new ValueJet printer models will allow both existing Mutoh printer users as well as specialty print providers currently using traditional screen printing and pad printing technologies the possibility to explore new digital print capabilities to produce printed products with a high added value and to generate new revenue streams”, said Arthur Vanhoutte, Mutoh Belgium’s Managing Director.
“With our new ValueJet LED UV printer range, we are combining the well-known and much appreciated Mutoh ValueJet printer line features with the proven application benefits of UV and the environmentally responsible aspects of LED UV cold cure technology.
“We also look forward to demonstrate the recently released ValueJet X-series printers (http://www.mutoh.eu/en-us/products/signdisplay/valuejet1638x.aspx) to the Fespa visitors. The robustly built ValueJet 1638X and 1638WX printers - featuring our award winning Intelligent Interweaving and our new DropMaster print technology - underline Mutoh’s technological leadership in the development of wide-format roll-to-roll outdoor printers and our passion for perfection, resulting in high productivity at the highest resolutions, attractive cost for print scores as well as an unrivalled level of ease of use”, he concluded.
