Mutoh to premiere new 64” ValueJet 1638UR at Fespa

At the Fespa 2018 Mutoh Europe will have the first showcase of UV LED Roll-to-Roll Printer ValueJet 1638UR (VJ-1638UR).

At the Fespa 2018 trade show (May 15-18, Berlin), Mutoh will première a new addition to its growing range of UV LED wide format print solutions, the ValueJet 1638UR (VJ-1638UR).

Engineered at Mutoh Japan, the ValueJet 1638UR is an addition to Mutoh’s existing ValueJet 1638UH hybrid UV LED printer which was recognised as the ‘best flatbed/hybrid printer up to 20 sqm/h’ by the European Digital Press Association (EDP).

The new ValueJet 1638UR is a 64” (162cm) wide dual head, dual lamp UV LED roll-to-roll printer specifically developed for the commercial print and sign & display markets. The printer uses Mutoh’s new US11 UV LED CMYK, White and Clear 0% VOC inks, available in 220ml cassettes and 800ml bags (500ml for white) which enable printing on the widest range of roll substrates.

The VJ-1638UR will create instant dry output, ready for application or post-treatment.  High added value can be created thanks to the use of white and clear inks enabling printing on transparent media and non-white substrates, multi-layer printing and spot varnish effects. The printer integrates two latest generation piezo drop on demand print heads producing print resolutions up to 1440 x 1440dpi. Media roll weights up to 100kg can be handled by the machine.

The 1638UR is suited for the production of high quality graphics, for applications such as in-store promotion prints & deco graphics, floor & window graphics, general signage, customized wallpapers, event banners & exhibition graphics, backlit prints, fine art prints, packaging samples, etc..

“We have seen a considerable increase of sales of our UV LED printers during the past year,” says Kenji Yasuhara, Mutoh Europe’s Managing Director. “The new ValueJet 1638UR will offer both installed-base (eco)solvent users as well as (offset/screen) printers an opportunity to expand their current product offering towards specialty applications and prints with high added value,” continues Yasuhara.

“The VJ-1638UR will enable short-run printing on the widest range of substrates on the market. Users will be able to process not only all typical sign & display substrates, but also thin film substrates that may be too heat-sensitive for water-based resin or solvent printers. Also all kinds of non-white substrates can be printed such as transparent, coloured or black media, fluorescent paper, metallic, mirror film, etc.  Our clear inks offer the possibility to create multi-layer prints and spot varnish effects. Actually, the only limit is the creativity of the users themselves,” concludes Yasuhara.
