NEW - ValueJet 626UF Desktop UV LED Printer

The new ValueJet VJ-626UF is a 6-colour (CMYK, White, Varnish) A2-size flatbed UV LED printer. A wide variety of solid materials and objects up to a thickness of 150 mm (5.9”) can be printed.

An optional rotary system enables the ValueJet 626UF to print on cylindrical objects with a diameter up to 120 mm and a length of 360 mm.

Offering a bed size of 594 x 483 mm (19” x 23.4”), the printer is targeted at short-run personalisation of gifts & gadgets, packaging prototypes, awards, specialty industrial items, labels, decals, signs, etc..

With print resolutions up to 1440x1440 dpi, the VJ-626UF printer has an integrated vacuum bed, an automatic table lifting system as well as an LED pointer to facilitate accurate media placement and origin point detection. Thickness of the loaded object is also automatically measured.

ValueJet 1638UH Hybrid UV LED Printer

The ValueJet 1638UH - 64” (165 cm) wide - is Mutoh’s first ever dual head UV LED printer delivering increased speed and cure performance. The machine will print on a wide variety of rigid and flexible materials up to 15 mm thick and 15 kg (rigids) / 30 kg (rolls), including heat-sensitive, transparent and non white substrates.

Offering print resolutions up to 1440 x 1440 dpi, the printer utilises Mutoh’s unique VOC-free UV LED C, M, Y, K, white and varnish rigid or flex inks to produce high quality graphics for short viewing distances. A luxurious or specialty finish of prints is possible thanks to custom varnish and embossing possibilities.

The ValueJet 1638UH printer recently won the award “Best Flatbed/Hybrid printer up to 20 sqm/h” attributed by the European Digital Press association (EDP).

Application possibilities encompass high quality added value graphics, such as packaging designs, customised interior deco, trade show graphics, etc…

New - Flex UV LED Ink Set

Mutoh recently introduced, next to its existing rigid LED uv ink set, a new flex UV LED ink set – C,M,Y,K, White & Varnish - specifically developed for its ValueJet UV LED printer range. Unique is that the inks do not contain any VOCs. No air filtering equipment is required. No ozone is generated into the environment. The new flex UV LED inks will extend the application capabilities of Mutoh’s ValueJet Hybrid printer models towards typical sign applications including high quality backlit applications, prints on clear and non white substrates and even car wrapping.

ValueJet X Sign & Display Printers

The ValueJet X sign & display printers integrate Mutoh’s revolutionary DropMaster™ technology which automatically adjusts the jet timing in function of the thickness of the loaded substrate.

The printers can be loaded with Mutoh’s genuine Eco Ultra and UMS (Universal Mild Solvent) inks for the production of a wide variety of commercial print applications for indoor and outdoor usage. Mutoh CMYK UMS inks cover 83 % of the Pantone® colour chart, which is unique in the current market place for a four colour ink set.
