Graphics One launches Mutoh ValueJet 628MP printer for the wall coverings and packaging markets

October 14, 2019

Graphics One, Sunnyvale, California, is pleased to announce the launch of the Mutoh VJ-628MP 24-inch into the North American market. The Mutoh VJ-628MP will be shown for the first time in the Americas during the Printing United Show during October 23-25, 2019 in Dallas, Texas in Graphics One’s booth 2861.

The Mutoh VJ-628MP is a specialized version of the VJ-628 and includes advanced hot-air directional heating from above and platen heating from below the substrate. This unique heating capability enhances ink adhesion and curing on both coated and uncoated substrates. In addition to the unique heating technology employed by the VJ-628MP, the performance of the printer is enhanced with the use of the MP resin wonder ink which provides compatibility with a wide range of coated and uncoated substrates.

Brian Phipps, President, and GM Mutoh Americas indicated, “In the past, we have worked closely with Graphics One in specialty markets and the VJ-628MP is a product for specialty applications. This unit has tremendous upside potential for vertical markets which we have traditionally not addressed. We are very pleased to be working with Graphics One on the launch of the product line to their customers.”

We are excited to have the opportunity to launch the new VJ-628MP into specialty markets,” stated Dan Barefoot, VP Sales, and Marketing Graphics One / Prism Inks. Barefoot continued, “Our tradition has been to go into new markets with printers and inks which are different from standard large-format applications. We have identified a number of target markets which will utilize the versatility of the printer and the MP resin wonder ink. We are excited about this collaboration.”

The new Mutoh VJ-628MP will start shipping through the Graphics One distribution channel in November and will ship with two sets of CMYK 220 ml cassettes. Additionally, the VJ-628MP will come bundled with a special version of Wasatch SoftRIP (one-year subscription) with step and repeat capabilities for wall coverings and will come with a one year limited warranty.
