Mutoh wins four at US expo

Wide format specialist Mutoh is the winner of four awards from the US Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo.


It took home Product of the Year award for the ValueJet 1624X – within the 64 inch printer in the Solvent or Latex Ink Under 80” category, the ValueJet 2638X in 104 inch printer in the Solvent or Latex Ink Over 80”, the ValueJet 1638UH – 64 inch UV-LED hybrid printer for Flatbed/Hybrid Under $100k and ValueJet 626UF UV/LED flatbed in the Tabletop Flatbed – industrial small item decoration division.


The competition recognises the latest equipment and supplies currently on the market that are advancing the industry. Mutoh has now received Product of the Year prizes six years in a row.


Russell Cavenagh, general manager, Mutoh Australia, says, “We showed our 626UF at Visual Impact, and have noticed more printers are moving into the UV promotional item printing space.


“Our 626UF does not require primer, a filtration unit, and has no VOCs in its inks. Mutoh won four awards in total, and we are happy at that. People are seeing it as a great alternative to other products on the market.


"We are also getting strong interest in our new 1638 UR UV LED roll-to-roll printer, which we released at Visual Impact as well.”


Brian Phipps, president, Mutoh America, says, “I am proud that we won product of the year again making it six years in a row. It proves once again that Mutoh’s proprietary Smart Printing Technology in our ValueJet wide format printers are second to none making them best in class.”


Mutoh will receive its Product of the Year trophies at a presentation the evening before the 2018 SGIA Expo opens on October 18.
