MANUFACTURER INFORMATION

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. Manufactured in Japan, Mutoh ValueJet printers feature best-in-class inkjet head technology, latest generation electronics and high quality inks.

Mutoh’s new wide piezo print head and new generation electronics offers a unique blend of high speed and high quality. The drop-on-demand Micro Piezo Inkjet Technology features a single print head with 1440 nozzles divided into four colour sections. Each colour section has 360 nozzles, or two 180 nozzle rows per colour. Because all colour sections are united in one head, there is no need for time-consuming head-to-head calibration routines. The integrated print head is capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.9 picoliters to 26.9 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 UV inkjet printing. Dedicated Intelligent Interweaving print effects for the Mutoh LED UV inks have been engineered, ensuring a drastic reduction of the curing structure in the ink layer and gloss banding suppression. 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.
