Mutoh launches its latest ValueJet printer
Mutoh Europe has introduced the latest machine in its popular ValueJet wide format digital printer family, the VJ-1627MH, a 1625 mm wide hybrid printer that features a hot air knife media drying system and uses resin-based inks to deliver instantly cured, direct printing onto both rigid and flexible roll substrates.
The VJ-1627MH incorporates a high-end piezo drop-on-demand printhead capable of producing print resolutions up to 720 x 1440 dpi, thus making it the perfect choice for the production of the top quality output required for point of sale and signage applications that are viewed at close distance, together with proofing, packaging prototypes, customised labels and thermo-forming applications.
It also comes complete with MP-31, a brand new multi-purpose CMYK + White resin-based ink set, which is available in 500 ml packs and offers a two-year outdoor durability without lamination. The inks facilitate direct printing onto white, transparent and coloured rigid substrates, including foam board, cardboard, aluminium composites and acrylic sheets as well as rigid sheets for thermoforming, such as PVC, PS, PP, APET, and PLA. They can also be used to print onto white, coloured and transparent roll substrates, including heat-sensitive media, shrink film and recyclable non-PVC media.
In addition, the MP-31 inks are also extremely stretchable and shrinkable and are thus suitable for use with high stretch applications, such as vehicle wrapping, as well as thermo/vacuum forming and shrink applications.
The printer can be used in conjunction with rigid substrates with a maximum thickness of 16mm and a maximum weight of maximum 15 kg. It can also be equipped with foldable rigid print tables and an optional media alignment system that aligns rigid media at the front side, to enable perfect double-sided printing.
Compared to its predecessor, the ValueJet 1617H, the new VJ-1627MH increases performance by up to 20 percent. When printing in n CMYK mode, it delivers maximum print speeds of 12 m² per hour at 720 x 720 dpi. Mutoh has also optimised operator convenience with an improved user interface, by implementing semi-automated cleaning cycles, as well as automated media height measurement.
The new ValueJet 1627MH printer is available now from authorised Mutoh resellers.
