Mutoh expands its small format printer range
Mutoh Europe has unveiled two new compact six-colour UV LED direct to object (DTO) flatbed production printers, the XpertJet 461UF and XpertJet 661UF, which further complement Mutoh’s existing DTO printer models, the popular ValueJet 426UF and 626UF.
Developed and manufactured in Japan, the new XpertJet desktop flatbed printers feature various product enhancements, including a new multi-language intuitive OLED display, an extended print area and a pioneering innovation in the form of Mutoh’s Local Dimming Control technology.
The XPJ-461UF and XPJ-661UF printers are designed to meet the increasing demand for added value personalised prints and the bespoke small-run production of commercial and industrial print applications. Typical applications encompass prints on phone covers, personalised gifts, photo products, promotional items, such as pens, lighters and USB sticks, souvenirs, awards, small signs, small series production or prototyping of packaging samples, decorative tiles and more.
Both printers can be set up in either CMYK or in CMYK + White + Varnish configurations and are suited for direct printing onto a wide variety of materials, including three-dimensional objects up to 15 cm thick. Printing onto dark coloured or clear substrates is also possible, thanks to the use of white inks and special added value finishing, such as spot varnish and embossing can also be achieved using dedicated varnishes.
The new XpertJet tabletop printers will fit into any regular office, home-based business or small retail environment due to their compact size. Furthermore, since Mutoh UV inks are VOC free and do not contain any hazardous air pollutants (non-HAP), no special ventilation system is required.
The new XPJ-461 and XPJ-661 are equipped with a newly developed segmented 2” wide UV lamp, which has six different sections, each of which can be individually controlled, thus enabling production of multiple varnish effects in the same print table movement. The result is an important productivity boost as well as a minimised risk for dust contamination into glossy printed areas.
The new XpertJet 461UF and XpertJet 661UF printers are available exclusively from Mutoh Certified Distributors throughout Europe.
