The newest member of Mutoh's popular ValueJet wide format digital printer family is a 162cm (64”) wide hybrid printer featuring a hot air knife media drying system and resin-based inks enabling direct printing on both rigid and roll substrates.
The ValueJet 1627MH incorporates a high-end piezo drop-on-demand print head capable of producing print resolutions up to 720 x 1440 dpi. Prints are dry when they come off the printer.
The ValueJet 1627MH comes with a new CMYK + White resin-based ink set called MP-31. The inks, which come in 500 ml packs, allow direct printing on white, transparent and coloured rigid substrates, including foam board, cardboard, alu panel, also acrylic sheets as well as rigid sheets for thermo forming (PVC, PS, PP, APET, PLA). Printing on white, coloured and transparent roll substrates is also possible, including heat sensitive media, shrink film, recyclable non PVC media and more. Mutoh’s MP-31 series inks have a UV durability up to 2 years outdoors without lamination.
The MP-31 inks are also stretchable & shrinkable, making them equally suited for high stretch applications such as car wrapping as well as thermo/vacuum forming and shrink applications.
“The new Mutoh ValueJet 1627MH is equally suited for sign & display print shops for the production of both indoor and long term outdoor prints, as well as for graphics companies looking for a digital solution for proofing or short run production of packaging prototypes or customised labels, even for industrial printers specialised in thermo forming,” says a company press release.
“Compared to its predecessor, the ValueJet 1617H, the new VJ-1627MH delivers a performance increase of up to 20 %. In CMYK setup, print speeds up to 12 m² per hour at 720 x 720 dpi are possible. Mutoh also optimised user convenience by improving the user interface.”
