Mutoh Announces New Signage And Textile Print Innovation And More

Mutoh Exhibiting Signage And Textile Print Innovations.

The new Mutoh 162cm (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.

The Mutoh VJ-1627MH is equally suited for sign and display print shops for the production of both indoor and long-term outdoor prints, as well as for graphic companies looking for a digital solution for proofing or short-run production of packaging prototypes or customised labels, even for industrial businesses specialised in thermoforming.

In the past years, Mutoh has been gradually extending its UV LED product range. With a print size of A3+ and A2 respectively, the ValueJet 426UF and ValueJet 626UF direct-to-object UV LED desktop printers allow direct printing on objects up to 70 and 150mm thick and offer CMYK + white + clear inks. They are particularly suited for printing customised promo gifts and a wide variety of personalised products.

The ValueJet 1638UR roll-to-roll UV LED dual head printer has been developed for the commercial print and sign and display markets. It uses Mutoh’s flexible UV LED CMYK and White and Clear 0% VOC inks, which enable printing on transparent media and non-white substrates, multi-layer printing and spot varnish effects.

The PerformanceJet 2508UF true flatbed printer combines a set of features to maximise productivity, and is a preferred choice for printers looking for high quality, precision, added value specialty prints, productivity and an attractive environmental footprint.

Mutoh’s Japanese made professional ValueJet sign and display printer range for indoor and outdoor commercial print and print-to-cut applications, ranges from 61cm (24 inch) up to 259cm (102 inch) print widths. Since 2007, more than 15,000 ValueJet printers were installed in Europe.

Mutoh printer and cutter combo solutions offer a high level of flexibility for print, cut and print-to-cut applications. The Mutoh print and cut combos offer either a semi-automated or fully automated workflow with barcode recognition, controlled from one single production software. Mutoh cutting plotters – available in widths from 77cm to 190cm (30-75 inch) – are fit for vinyl cutting as well as for contour-cut and through-cut applications. They all integrate a laser sensor, which will recognise registration marks on preprinted graphics. This way, the cutter will know perfectly in which area it will have to do contour-cutting or through-cutting.

The high speed ValueJet 1948WX digital dye sublimation printer offers sellable print speeds up to 125sqm/h and top speeds of 195sqm/h. The robust and industrial VJ-1948WX (1910mm wide) dye sublimation printer is a top choice for production-oriented customers and businesses looking for a high quality volume printer for intensive use. Application possiblities encompass both transfer to and direct printing of fabrics as well as transfer to rigids.

For direct-to-textile print applications, including natural fabrics such as cotton, Mutoh offers the 1910mm wide ValueJet 1938TX printer. It is targeted at sampling of short-run on-demand and local digital production of garments, upholstery, fashion, swimwear, interior decor fabrics, home textiles, flags, etc.

These solutions and more can be seen at FESPA 2019 in Munich, being held from 14-17 May. Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print – the region’s leading events for the signage and printing industry – as well as Africa LED and Modern Marketing. The event is taking place from 11-13 September 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
