With more than 26 years of experience in the large format printer market, Design Supply offers expertise and knowledge in tailoring the exact solution for your specific application.
The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1604WX is easy to operate and maintain and delivers constant quality for volume production runs as well as short print runs. Maximise your profit with Mutoh's award-winning Intelligent Interweaving print technology, which offers predictable and repeatable output quality fit for purpose every time in the shortest possible time and drastically reduces or even eliminates horizontal banding, step mismatch banding and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.
Mutoh's proprietary DropMaster technology means constant and uncompromised print quality on any thickness/weight of transfer paper used with the ValueJet VJ-1604WX. DropMaster technology, specifically developed for Mutoh's dual head ValueJet printers, eliminates the need for cumbersome and time consuming media dependent head adjustments.
The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1604WX works with Mutoh's new DS2-Series Dye Sublimation Inks. Developed specifically for the ValueJet VJ-1604WX print heads, Mutoh's DS2-Series inks produce excellent nozzle stability for high speed and high volume printing, delivering superior image sharpness and definition. The DS2-Series inks can be used for transfer printing or direct printing onto fabrics such as polyester or mixed fibres. 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.
For transfer printing, Mutoh DS2-Series inks are optimised for use in combination with dedicated coated sublimation papers of different weights. In addition to transfer to synthetic fibres, they can also be sued for transfer onto pre-treated rigid substrates (e.g. mugs, plates, magnetic vinyls, wood, place mats, ChromaLuxe plates, tiles, mirrors, acrylic glass, metal, nylon, lighters, pens, CD's and more). Direct printing on to fabric requires drying and fixation process equipment, a calendar or a heat press.
Mutoh DS2-Series Dye Sublimation Inks deliver top scores in washing, perspiration, and light fastness properties, including UV durability. DS2 inks are Oeko-Tex compliant. After printing with DS2-Series inks onto transfer paper or polyester fabrics, a sublimation follow-up treatment (transfer) is required, through high pressure and temperature (calender), to fix the colours. When printing directly onto polyester fabrics with DS2 inks, and after sublimation, the fabric needs to be washed before use, to remove the brownish dispersant and to fully release the vibrant colours typical for sublimation inks. Average ink consumption is less than 5 ml/m² on transfer paper.
The ValueJet VJ-1604WX offers a wide range of easily selectable pre-defined print modes and speeds.

Mutoh's white paper on How green is green
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 single wide piezo print head features an 8-channel drop-on-demand inkjet technology. The 180 nozzle head includes all four colour sections, configured in 8 lines, and capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.5 picoliters to 21 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. 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.
DropMaster technology is a revolutionary print automation technique which eliminates the need for media dependent head adjustments. Specifically designed for Mutoh's dual head ValueJet models, DropMaster automatically calculates and adjusts the uni/bi-directional fire timings by analysing the media thickness and drop-throw distance between print head and media surface.
