Mutoh set to inspire at FESPA 2020

 At FESPA 2020, which will take place on 24th-27th  March in Madrid, Mutoh Europe will be presenting the brand new XpertJet 461UF and 661UF desktop UV LED direct to object (DTO) printers as well as two new wide-format vinyl cutters, the ValueCut II 1300 and 1800 on Stand B95, Hall 7.  

In addition, the recently introduced XpertJet 1641SR and XpertJet 1682SR – 162 cm wide, sign and display roll-to-roll printers will also make their FESPA debut. Last but not least, Mutoh will present its new Digital Factory UV Mutoh Edition RIP software for Mutoh DTO printers.

The XpertJet 461UF/661UF, which are Mutoh’s second generation UV LED six-colour desktop direct to object printers, are designed to respond to the increasing demand for added value personalised prints and bespoke small-lot production of commercial and industrial print applications. The XPJ-461UF is an A3+ size model, while the XPJ-661UF is an A2+ size model.

Both printers feature various product enhancements, such as a new multi-language intuitive OLED display, an extended print area, new cosmetics and a pioneering innovation in the form of Mutoh’s Local Dimming Control technology. With this technology, it is possible to produce multiple varnish effects in the same print table movement, with a resulting boost in productivity.

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 much more besides.

The XpertJet 1641SR/1682SR models, Mutoh’s fifth generation of sign and display printers, are the successors of the multi-awarded Mutoh ValueJet 1624X and ValueJet 1638X printers. These 64” (162 cm) wide piezo drop-on-demand roll-fed machines feature a new seven-colour (CMYK, Lc, Lm, Lk) inkset, multiple product enhancements and pioneering innovative features.

XpertJet 1641SR is a single head four colour model, while the XpertJet 1682SR is a dual staggered head model for two x four colour setup or seven colour setup. The printers can use Mutoh’s new Greenguard GOLD certified MS41 series eco solvent inks as well as Mutoh’s universal mild solvent inks.

Specifically developed for high quality cost-effective volume production of sign and display graphics, for long term outdoor applications as well as durable prints for indoor use, the printers can be used to produce a variety of applications such backlit signs, interior décor and wall coverings, point-of-sale displays, fine art reproduction prints, vehicle graphics, windows graphics, self-adhesive stickers and more

The ValueCut II 1300 and 1800 are high performance multi-purpose drag knife vinyl cutting plotters that feature new cosmetics, a new mainboard and keyboard, an extended input buffer as well as a standard Ethernet, USB and serial port.

Offering cutting speeds up to 1530 mm/s, an acceleration up to 4.2 G and a cutting force up to 600 g as well as a guaranteed 10 metres media tracking, the new VC2-1300 and VC-1800 are suited for regular signage and lettering applications, apparel heat transfer graphics as well as for contour cutting of preprinted graphics. With the integrated automatic registration mark detection technology, it is easy to produce a series of stickers that are contour cut and/or die-cut.

Digital Factory UV – Mutoh Edition is a new dedicated RIP software solution for use with Mutoh UV LED direct to object flatbed production printers. Developed for Mutoh Europe by CADlink Technology Corporation, it has been specifically tailored to suit the requirements of the Mutoh ValueJet 426UF / ValueJet 626UF as well as to the new XpertJet 461UF / 661UF models.

Digital Factory UV Mutoh Edition integrates a dedicated feature set smartly addressing the unique production workflow requirements inherent to UV digital direct to object print technology. Additionally, the RIP software also offers a dramatically simplified pre-production workflow to enable graphic designers and printer operators to efficiently and correctly work with white and clear inks.
