Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1324 is compatible with Mutoh Eco Ultra and UMS Ink Systems
The ValueJet VJ-1324 can be configured with two different ink types, Mutoh Eco Ultra inks and Mutoh Universal Mild Solvent (UMS) inks. Both inks are suitable for long term outdoor applications and are also an excellent choice for durable, photo-realistic prints for indoor usage. Output created using Eco Ultra or UMS inks are water resistant and offer a UV outdoor resistance of up to three years. For heavy–duty applications where mechanical stress in involved (floor and vehicle graphics), lamination is required. Stabilisation is required prior to lamination.
Mutoh Eco Ultra inks, available in 220ml cassettes only for the ValueJet VJ-1324, are Mutoh’s third generation eco inks featuring improved ink fixation, better drying and improved scratch-resistance. Mutoh Eco Ultra inks have wide media compatibility, allowing direct printing on to (eco – solvent) coated media as well as on to a wider range of standard available uncoated PVC banner media. Eco Ultra inks are ideal when printing less than three times a week. Thanks to a fast drying time, low cost media with a standard backing can be used.
Mutoh’s Universal Mild Solvent inks (UMS) are fourth generation, environmentally friendly, mild solvent inks specifically developed for volume-oriented users. Available in 1000ml bulk bottles for theValueJet VJ-1324, Mutoh UMS inks feature best-in-class pigments and resins for optimum speed and quality performance. The inks are based on a new generation of milder and non-aggressive solvents. Virtually odour-free, Mutoh UMS inks do not require any forced ventilation. Mutoh UMS inks offer an unrivalled colour gamut, covering 83% of the Pantone C colour chart, and unique media gloss preservation. Suited for both high quality and high speed printing, Mutoh UMS inks also require minimal printer maintenance and are fixed and dried at regular heating temperatures. Universal Mild Solvent inks are ideal for printing more than 3000m²/year and every two production days, a 5-minute maintenance tubing flush is recommended.
Mutoh has been at the forefront of the wide format industry for more than 20 years. As an innovative developer and manufacturer of wide-format printers and cutters, Mutoh incorporates pioneering technology to bring you the best equipment for your application. The range of Mutoh ValueJet printers features best-in-class inkjet head technology, latest generation electronics and high quality inks.
Mutoh’s new wide piezo drop-on-demand print head features 1440 nozzles. The 1440 nozzle head includes four colour sections (C, M, Y, K) each divided in two nozzle rows with 180 nozzles per colour. Because all colour head sections are united in one head, there is no need for time consuming head-to-head calibration routines. The print head is capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.5 picoliters to 35.2 picoliters, resulting in incredible accuracy, sharpness, and speed. Increased accuracy and consistency of dot size and dot release during printing improves the image, in addition to increased dot gain control, allowing for more latitude in profile settings.
Mutoh’s award-winning Intelligent Interweaving, print technology drastically reduces or totally eliminates the typical difficulties inherent to conventional digital inkjet printing, including defects such as horizontal banding, ink mottle, bleed and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles. Ink is laid down in waves, as opposed to straight lines used on most wide format printers. Watch this video to learn more. The biggest benefit of this proprietary Mutoh print technology is that it offers predictable and repeatable output quality, bringing an unprecedented level of user comfort to the printer operator.
Mutoh UMS inks consist of highly durable colour pigments ground to nano-size level, a new blend of milder and non-aggressive solvents and a new mix of resins. The resin mix enables optimum adhesion of the pigments to the substrate and creates a uniform and smooth ink layer. Each individual colour pigment is coated by the resin mix to address the typical requirements of outdoor sign and display prints (gloss preservation, scuff, abrasion and chemical resistance) and to safeguard long-term outdoor durability of the colour pigments.
