Mutoh Europe has unveiled its XPJ-1642WR water based CMYK 64in (162 cm) digital inkjet printer.
The XpertJet 1642WR incorporates two new generation extra wide 1600 nozzle AccuFine print heads, installed in a staggered setup. Combined with Mutoh’s new proprietary i-screen weaving technology, the new print heads will deliver exceptional print quality at high production speeds. The XpertJet 1642WR will deliver sellable high quality production speeds up to 61sq m/hr.
Targeted at the sublimation transfer market, the XpertJet 1642WR dye sublimation printer will deliver high quality graphics for transfer onto all possible flexible and rigid polyester materials: in-store textile décor graphics and displays, soft signage and graphics for events and tradeshows, home decoration, flags and pennants, sports goods (snowboards, helmets), gadgets (mugs, umbrellas, mouse mats) and apparel (fast fashion, blouses, sportswear, outdoor jackets, T shirts). The printer will also print directly onto closed coated polyester fabrics or mixed fibres.
To accommodate the widest range of dye sublimation papers, the printer has pressure rollers with adaptable pressure which can also be individually disabled. Four different head heights can be used, from 1.5 mm to 4 mm.
To facilitate uninterrupted volume production, the new 1642WR integrates an automatic nozzle check unit which will automatically detect missing nozzles and clean them.
The new XpertJet 1642WR comes with Mutoh’s new generation DS3-series HC dye sublimation ink. HC stands for ‘Increased Colourant’ which means reduced ink consumption, faster drying and compatibility with lightweight papers.
The XPJ-1642WR printer is available immediately and will be marketed by Mutoh Europe throughout the EMEA area through its existing network of certified distributors.
