Mutoh will premier the new ValueJet 1638UR printer

Mutoh Europe will use the occasion of FESPA 2018 to première a new addition to its growing range of UV LED wide format print solutions, the ValueJet 1638UR (VJ-1638UR).

Engineered and manufactured at Mutoh in Japan, the ValueJet 1638UR is an addition to Mutoh’s existing ValueJet 1638UH hybrid UV LED printer, which last year was recognised as ‘best flatbed/hybrid printer up to 20 sqm/h’ by the European Digital Press Association (EDP).

The new ValueJet 1638UR is a 64” (162cm) wide dual head, dual lamp UV LED roll-to-roll printer specifically developed for the commercial print and sign and display markets. It uses Mutoh’s new US11 UV LED CMYK, White and Clear 100 percent VOC-free inks, available in 220ml cassettes and 800ml bags (500ml for white), which facilitate printing on the widest range of roll substrates.

The VJ-1638UR delivers instant dry output, ready for application or post-treatment. High added value can be created thanks to the use of white and clear inks enabling printing on transparent media and non-white substrates, multi-layer printing and spot varnish effects. The printer integrates two latest generation piezo drop-on-demand printheads producing print resolutions up to 1440 x 1440dpi.

The 1638UR, which can handle media rolls of up to 100kg, is designed for the production of high quality graphics, for applications such as in-store promotional prints and décor, floor and window graphics, general signage, customised wallpapers, event banners and exhibition graphics, backlit prints, fine art prints, packaging samples and more.

The new ValueJet 1638UR will be displayed on Mutoh’s stand (Stand B20, Hall 1.2) and will be exclusively available through its wide network of authorised resellers in the EMEA region.
