Mutoh has launched a new wide format printer for dye sublimation textile printing, the ValueJet 1604WX (VJ-1604WX). Available immediately, this new single head high quality 64” (162 cm) wide budget friendly dye sublimation printer will fit the needs of start-up and established businesses looking for a wider printer to increase their portfolio of digital transfer decoration, fashion and objects.  

The ValueJet 1604WX CMYK printer is suited for volume production runs as well as short print runs of high quality in-store textile decoration and displays, textile banners, pop-ups, sportswear, personalised home decoration, and can be used to print items for transfer to rigid objects such as mugs, cups, mouse pads, snowboards, and just about anything else you can get underneath a heat press. 

ValueJet 1604WX resizedEngineered and manufactured in Japan, the compact ValueJet 1604WX includes a variable drop 8 channel print head, allowing output resolutions up to 1440 x 1440 dpi. The piezo print head is capable of firing drops from 3.5 pl up to 21 pl.

Delivering typical production speeds up to 22 m²/h at 360 x 1080 dpi (3 Pass), the ValueJet 1604WX will print on common dye sublimation transfer papers and can handle 2” and 3” core rolls. The printer comes with a stand, a non-motorised roll-off system and a motorised winder system for media rolls up to 30 kg, for straight winding of finished prints, which is particularly important for easy after-treatment on a calender which is required to transfer the image from the dye sub material to the desired textile. 

The company says its new dye sublimation textile printer uses Mutoh’s DS2-series dye sublimation inks which are 100 % VOC free. The DS2-series inks can be used for transfer paper printing - transfer to polyester or mixed fibre fabrics or transfer to pre-treated rigid substrates.

The new ValueJet VJ-1604WX model is available exclusively through Mutoh’s channel of authorised and trained resellers throughout Europe, the Middle East & Africa.

PASSION & EXCELLENCE

Born of HERITAGE & INTEGRITY...

Dedicated to bringing to life the creations, dreams and aspirations of designers around the world, RA Smart has re-defined the ‘art’ of fabric printing and are acknowledged experts in the fields of specialist digital and screen print for the textile industry.

Education at RA Smart

RA Smart is committed to supporting the next generation of designers and actively involved with all UK and Irish design colleges, including The Royal College of Art, London College of Fashion and Central St Martins as well as a little further afield with the likes of The Philadelphia College of Science and Technology, Academy of Arts San Francisco and the Danish Design School in Copenhagen.

Our strong links with education have seen equipment supplied by RA Smart being used by graduates finishing their diplomas and leaving university to embark on a career in design and, in many cases, starting their own business.

Whether it’s a simple hand textile print table that’s required or a complete digital print facility, RA Smart is able to equip design studios of any size, and our expert knowledge of the printed textile and graphics industry means we can work closely with technicians and lecturers to ensure the print equipment supplied meets the requirements of specific courses and any special applications.
