ValueJet VJ-1628TD works with both Mutoh’s Direct Disperse (fabric) inks and Mutoh high-speed Disperse Dye (transfer paper) inks
The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1628TD is fully compatible with Mutoh worry-free, environmentally friendly water-based inks. Direct Disperse inks are for direct to fabric printing. Mutoh high-speed Disperse Dye inks are for transfer paper, and excellent nozzle stability for high speed and high volume printing. 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. Average ink consumption is 15ml/m². Mutoh Direct Dye (fabric) and Disperse Dye (transfer paper) inks are100% VOC free and are available in 1 litre and 5 litre bottles. Fabrics need to be washed before use after printing directly onto polyester fabrics and after sublimation, to remove the brownish dispersant and to fully release the vibrant colours typical for sublimation inks.
The Mutoh Disperse Dye sublimation inks have been developed for printing onto transfer paper in sublimation applications. A mirror image is printed onto the transfer paper. After printing with this ink type onto transfer paper, a sublimation follow-up treatment (transfer) is required, through high pressure and temperature (calender), to fix the colours. The transfer paper is placed with the ink side against the polyester material in the press-unit or calendar. During the transfer process, ink will migrate from the transfer paper into the polyester fibres. Only the side against the ink side will be printed /coloured. In some cases, it is also possible to see the print on both sides.
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 features an 8-channel drop-on-demand inkjet technology. The 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 print head is capable of producing ink drops ranging from 5.5 picoliters to 34.5 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 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.
