Mutoh is giving a debut to its new PerformanceJet 2508UF, the company’s first 4’x8’ UV-LED flatbed printer, at Sign Expo 2018, America’s largest sign and display expo.
The company says the PJ-2508UF offers field upgradable head configurations of up to eight sets. Four sets of staggered print heads are installed as standard for high-speed printing, offering a maximum resolution of 600x1200dpi.
It is also equipped with an automatic media thickness detector supporting media up to four inches/100mm, and 50kg per sqm.
