Mutoh announces VJ1604WX dye sub

Mutoh is to launch a new wide format dye sublimation printer, the ValueJet 1604WX, a 1.6m wide entry level machine.

Mutoh has launched this budget 1.6m wide dye sub printer, the ValueJet 1604WX.

This printer is suitable for producing a range of textile products, including in-store decoration and displays, textile banners, sportswear and personalised home decoration as well as transfer to rigid objects such as mugs.

It’s fitted with a single eight channel print head, capable of firing drops from 3.5 pl up to 21 pl, which delivers output resolution up to 1440 x 1440 dpi. It can produce 22 sqm/hr in its typical three-pass production mode at 360 x 1080 dpi. The inks are Mutoh’s own DS2-series dye sublimation inks, suitable for printing to transfer paper and compliant with the Okotex 100 standard. Images can be transferred to polyester or mixed fibre fabrics, as well as to pre-treated rigid substrates. However, these inks can also be printed direct to polyester or mixed fibre fabrics.

It comes with a motorised 30 kg take-up system and RIP software as standard.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
