Sneak Peek of the New Mutoh Wide-Format Roll-to-Roll Printer
PHOENIX - March 19, 2018 - Mutoh Industries plans to launch the VJ-1638UR, a new 64˝ wide UV-LED inkjet printer for the commercial print and sign & display markets. Prior to the official launch from Japan, the VJ-1638UR will be exhibited at the International Sign Association (ISA) Sign Expo 2018, in Orlando, Fla., from March 22nd - 24th, 2018. The company will also be displaying its wide-format goods at the 2018 SGIA Expo in Las Vegas this October.
The VJ-1638UR is specifically developed for roll-to-roll printing at an affordable price with the quality and performance of Mutoh's current UV-LED printers. The staggered dual print head design and the dual UV lamps on the both sides of the print heads provide high productivity while also offering environmentally friendly features, such as UV ink that is VOC free, low energy consumption and odorless after curing.
Mutoh UV-LED ink provides a wide range of applications. In addition, Mutoh "Cool technology" reduces working temperature allowing printing on heat sensitive media. Varnish ink will contribute to your sign and display business by allowing spot varnish and multi-layer printing which is not possible with solvent printers.
The printer also comes standard with an automatic media registration pin system and a vacuum table with "blow-back" feature for easy handling and positioning of heavy media. The vacuum table is divided into four zones firmly fixing various media sizes and improving work efficiency.
The PJ-2508UF will expand a print shop's production capability and product offerings such as promotional items, directional signage, awards, specialty, labels and packaging prototypes.
The VJ-1638UR is scheduled to be released sequentially in the U.S., Asia, EMEA. The release in Japan is planned for May.
