Mutoh launches two more wide format printers

Mutoh has launched two new printers, replacing existing models with new ‘X’ versions. The VJ1324X is a 1.37m wide printer with a single printhead, while the VJ 2638X is a 2.6m wide machine fitted with two printheads in a staggered configuration.

The printheads are Epson MicroPiezo heads, which produces multiple sized droplets from 3.5 to 35.2 picolitres. These heads have eight channels with 180 nozzles per channel, configured to use two channels per colour.

Both printers can be loaded with Mutoh Eco Ultra or Universal Mild Solvent inks. Mutoh recently picked up a pan European Indoor Air Comfort Certificate for the UMS inks, so that they’re suitable for use with indoor deco prints.

Naturally these printers use Mutoh’s Intelligent Interweaving (i²) system which helps to counteract banding at higher print speeds. They also use Mutoh’s DropMaster print technology, which automatically recalculates and adjusts the uni/bi-directional fire timings to compensate for the way that the distance alters between the print head and media surface depending on the thickness of the media in use. This leads to more accurate placement of ink drops, giving a sharper image.

Mutoh claims that these printers can deliver sellable production speeds at 720×720 dpi, up to 16.4 sqm/h for the VJ-1324X, and 39.0 sqm/h for the VJ-2638X, regardless of whether printing to vinyl or banner.

Both are immediately available and will no doubt be shown at the upcoming Fespa Digital show in Amsterdam.
