Mutoh to launch new wide format press

Mutoh is showcasing its new ValueJet 1638UR roll-to-roll wide-format UV LED printer to Australian printers at the upcoming Visual Impact show in Sydney.

The company is also displaying two of its other presses, the ValueJet 1638UH  LED-UV hybrid printer and table-top ValueJet 626UF, both fresh from winning awards at US SGIA.

Russell Cavenagh, general manager of Mutoh Australia says, “The VJ-1638UR is ideal for applications from in-store promotions and graphics, to floor and window decals, general signage, wallpapers, event and exhibition graphics, backlit panels, fine art prints and even packaging samples.

“The white and varnish ink options, in particular, expand the versatility of this machine by allowing printing to transparent and non-white substrates, multi-layer printing and spot varnish effects which add value – and the opportunity for higher margins – to your print products.

“With no warm up required, it is fast to print and work is delivered instantly dry and ready to go, and with its eco-friendly VOC-free inks, LED UV energy efficiency and consistent performance – and of course, ready support through our dealers and Mutoh Australia – make this an economical and highly profitable investment.”

The VJ 1638UH hybrid printer offers both roll and flat sheet options and eight ink slots for either double CMYK printing, or CMYK with two white and two varnish inks, which Mutoh says gives added flexibility in both creativity and media choice.

The second accoladed press, the VJ 626UF, has the ability to print directly to both flat and three-dimensional media up to A2+ in size and up to 150mm high. Mutoh says the press is ideal for products like pens, phone and tablet cases, trophies and awards, and dimensional signage possible.

Cavenagh adds, “There’s even a rotary unit available which allows printing around the circumference of bottles and other cylindrical options, in one pass.”

“We are looking forward to meeting with visitors at Visual Impact, demonstrating these technologies to them, and exploring the ways in which Mutoh’s technology can help them build their future business success.”

Visual Impact runs from 12 – 14 September at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. Click here to register today, or find out more at the Visual Impact website.
