ValueJet VJ-1638W works with Mutoh’s new Water Based Disperse Dye Sublimation Inks
Developed specifically for the ValueJet VJ-1638W print heads, Mutoh’s Disperse Dye Sublimation inks produce excellent nozzle stability for high speed and high volume printing, delivering superior image sharpness and definition. Mutoh’s new water-based dye sublimation inks are odourless, during both the printing and the transfer process and produce rich, vibrant colours and offer excellent colourfastness. These inks deliver top scores in washing, perspiration, and light fastness properties, including UV durability. Disperse Dye Sublimation Inks are 100% VOC free and are available in 1 litre and 5 litre bottles. After printing with this ink type onto transfer paper or polyester fabrics, a sublimation follow-up treatment (transfer) is required, through high pressure and temperature (calender), to fix the colours. Fabrics need to be washed before use after printing directly onto polyester fabrics with this ink type and after sublimation, to remove the brownish dispersant and to fully release the vibrant colours typical for sublimation inks. Average ink consumption is 15ml/m².
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 print head, new staggered dual head setup, and new generation electronics offers a unique blend of high speed and high quality. The wide piezo print head features 8-channel drop-on-demand inkjet technology. Each 1440 nozzle head includes four colour sections (C, M, Y, K) each divided in two nozzle rows with 360 nozzles per colour. All four colour sections are in one head, eliminating the need for head to head calibration. The integrated print heads are capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.3 picoliters to 34.1 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. New generation electronics include higher carriage speeds and ink firing frequencies and adapted weaving algorithms give an impressive increase in productions speed as well as optimised ink spread and improved drying.
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 videoto 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.
