Description

Market and Application

The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1624WX 64″ 1625mm is ideal for everyday dye sublimation printing for established Print Shops and Sign Makers and those businesses wanting to extend their portfolio. In dye sublimation printing, images are printed in reverse onto transfer paper. After printing, a heat press or calendar fixes the images onto polyester-based textiles. The heat process bonds the images permanently to the fabric. Colours are bright and vibrant. Outputs are durable and washable. Unlike other ink jet technologies, the sublimation process does not affect the handling and feel of the material.

The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1624WX is targeted at mid-volume production of soft signage, apparel and textile printing with Mutoh water-based dye sublimation inks. Prints can be transferred onto flexible and rigid polyester materials, producing soft signage, clothing and gadgets: high quality in-store textile decoration & displays, textile banners, pop-ups, personalised home decoration, sportswear & shirts, flags and pennants, mugs, phone covers, mouse mats, umbrellas and much more.

Intelligent design features make the Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1924W easy to set up and operate. A newly designed keyboard with an easy and logical layout makes the VJ-1924W easy to operate. Save time with the automatic sheet-off cutting function. Special ink sub tanks allow uninterrupted printing, even when loading new ink cassettes. An L-shaped cover has been added to the VJ-1924W to allow easy access for periodic maintenance. Minimum periodic maintenance, flexibility of switching quickly between print jobs, and low ink consumption (average 8.5 ml/m² on uncoated PVC at 720 dpi with 67% coverage) means the VJ-1924W swiftly turns an investment into profit.

The ValueJet VJ-1924W offers a wide range of easily selectable pre-defined print modes and speeds, allowing output resolutions between 360 x 720 and 1440 x 1440 dpi. Typical prints speeds are:

Print Mode Resolution dpi Speed m²/hr
Super Fine 1080 x 1080, 9p 10.8
High Quality 720 x 1080, 6p 13.1
Quality Production 360 x 720, 4p 14.7
Production1 720 x 720, 4p 20.1
Production2 360 x 720, 2p 21.5
Speed Production 360 x 360, 2p 29.2
High Speed Production 360 x 360, 1p 56.2

The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1924W comes with a stand and integrated roll holders. The VJ-1924W incorporates a set of scroller supports mounted at the back of the machine. These supports enable non-motorised unwinding of media (2″ and 3″ core). The VJ-1924W printer handles a wide choice of media, including both 2″ and 3″ rolls.

Using Mutoh’s water-based dye sublimation inks and easily available uncoated recyclable polyester-based materials means there is no need for forced ventilation, as the inks are free from VOCs and hazardous components. Average ink consumption is 8.5ml/m² at 720dpi with 67% coverage. The prints are also odourless. Soft signage is much easier to pack and ship which reduces transport costs, as it fold easily to reduce space and extremely lightweight. Soft signage can be washed, if necessary and re-used without fading. Mutoh water-based dye sublimation inks feature UV durability of 3 to 6 months outdoor. Mutoh’s Water-based dye sublimation inks are available in 1000ml bulk bottles, and will enable you to lower your cost per copy. Paper prints are produced faster, which increases your productivity. Readily available low cost polyester fabrics (uncoated) means you can offer higher end luxurious products with premium appearance, touch and feel, which can be sold at a higher price compared to regular vinyl, paper and banner prints.

Optional items for the Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1924W include the Mutoh SpectroVue VM-10 Spectrophotometer, Motorised Torque Controlled Take-Up System, the Mutoh ValueCut, the Onyx 12 RIPCenter ValuePlus Mutoh Edition RIP and the SAi FlexiPRINT SE12 Mutoh Edition RIP software. The Mutoh SpectroVue VM-10 spectrophotometer directly attaches to the print head carriage or shuttle of the VJ-1924W printer, enabling the monitoring of colour drift over time, from job-to-job or even within a large job. The VM-10 can also be used to build ICC colour profiles and linearization files, in combination with supporting software. The VM-10 allows fast, simple and accurate colour measuring and process control to your workflow, producing consistent colour prints every time with the on-board ColorVerify system. The Mutoh multi-purpose ValueCut cutter can be run in tandem with the Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1924W, allowing for simultaneous printing and cutting. The Mutoh ValueCut cutting plotter is able to tackle all contour cutting applications such as stickers, short-run decals, window designs and much more. For intensive graphics applications, dedicated RIP software is recommended. SAi FlexiPRINT SE12 Mutoh Edition RIP software for single workstation environments and Onyx 12 RIPCenter ValuePlus Mutoh Edition RIP solutions make it easy to prepare jobs and create sellable prints faster. Both RIP solutions include a fully integrated print and cut workflow.

Built to last, Mutoh ValueJets are renowned for precision engineering and meticulous production practices for years of profitable use. As you would expect from Mutoh, reliable performance is a given. For added peace of mind, Mutoh ValueJet printers feature a 12-month on-site warranty.

MORE 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 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 3.3 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.

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.

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.
