Mutoh ValueJet Hybrid Printer Wins EDP Award

GSW – Mimaki

The new 162.5cm (64 inch) wide ValueJet 1627MH hybrid inkjet printer features a hot air knife media drying system and unique CMYK + White resin-based inks, enabling direct printing on the widest range of white, transparent and coloured rigid and roll substrates. Mutoh received a European Digital Press Association (EDP) award in the category ‘Best Wide-format Multipurpose Printer’.

Another Mutoh printer, the ValueJet 1638UR LED UV, was also nominated for an EDP award in the category ‘Best roll-to-toll printer <170cm’. The VJ-1627MH printer is equally suited for sign and display print shops for the production of both indoor and long-term outdoor prints, as well as for graphics companies looking for a digital solution for proofing or short-run production of packaging prototypes or customised labels, even for industrial businesses specialised in thermo-forming.

‘We are really delighted with the recognition by the EDP association for our continuous innovation and product improvements. This shows Mutoh’s commitment to the future, by continuously releasing products that make the difference with cutting-edge technology,’ said Kenji Yasuhara, Mutoh Europe’s managing director.

The EDP’s expert commission selects the nominated products based on quality, performance, innovation and costs. The criteria are very strict and there are no voting online or any other public votes. As a result, the winning products are selected on technical and performance criteria and not popularity.
