MUTOH launches Valujet 1604X budget sign & display printer.
Mutoh has unveiled the latest addition to its range of ValueJet roll-to-roll sign & display printers at Fespa Digital 2016 in Amsterdam, the single head 64” (162 cm) wide ValueJet 1604X.
The compact new entry is aimed at start-up sign makers in addition to existing print providers who need a wider printer for extra versatility such as frequent material switches or for those who produce volume full colour stickers.
Although an entry level model, the new printer model boasts high print quality and precision, productivity, a professional standard configuration including a motorised take-up system for rolls up to 30 kg, simple and intuitive operation and comes with an affordable price tag within its range.
The printer incorporates a piezo drop-on-demand print head capable of firing ink droplets as small as 3.5 pl up to 21 pl. With Mutoh’s Intelligent Interweaving technology on board, a new 360 x 1080 print resolution and three individually controllable heaters, the new ValueJet 1604X can deliver high quality production speeds up to an acceptable 11.5 m2/h.
The VJ-1604X is also supported by the Mutoh ValueJet Status Monitor software (VSM). This allows the operator to manage the status of the printer using a portable device like a tablet or smart phone.
The ValueJet 1604X is suited for the production of long-term outdoor and indoor sign & display prints such as billboards, posters, general signage, exhibition stand graphics, wall coverings, full colour stickers, vehicle graphics, point-of sale displays, etc.
Mutoh maintains that apart from an affordable price, the printer will also offer an excellent return on investment performance, since it can be loaded with two different ink types, i.e. the Mutoh Eco Ultra inks in 220 ml cassettes or litre packs as well as the Mutoh Universal Mild solvent (UMS) inks in litre packs. The litre pack ink supply solution provides the functionality of ink cassettes, combined with the advantages of a bulk ink system. Regular running cost per m2 using Mutoh UMS inks is as low as 0.79 EUR.
For the UMS inks, Mutoh recently also obtained a pan European Indoor Air Comfort Certificate, which makes the inks suited for the production of certified indoor deco prints.
The new ValueJet VJ-1604X model will be sold through Mutoh authorised and trained resellers throughout Europe, the Middle East & Africa.
