Mutoh brings out next generation water-based printer

Mutoh Europe has unveiled its XPJ-1642WR water-based digital inkjet printer.

Based on Mutoh’s new XpertJet printer platform, the 64in-wide  XPJ-1642WR incorporates two new generation extra wide 1600 nozzle AccuFine printheads, installed in a staggered setup. Combined with Mutoh’s new proprietary i-screen weaving technology - its fourth generation weaving algorithms - the new printheads should deliver sellable high quality print running at up to 61m²/h. Top engine speed of the machine is 98m²/h.

Targeted at the sublimation transfer market, the XpertJet 1642WR can accommodate a wide range of dye-sublimation papers. It has rollers with adaptable pressure which can also be individually disabled. Four different head heights can be used, from 1.5 mm to 4 mm.

There’s an automatic nozzle check unit, which will automatically detect missing nozzles and clean them. The machine can also be equipped with three different motorized take up systems of 30 kg, 40 kg and 100 kg. There is a front media drying unit and replaceable mist collection filters.

The new XpertJet 1642WR comes with Mutoh’s new generation DS3-series HC dye sublimation ink.  HC stands for ‘increased colourant’ which means reduced ink consumption, faster drying and compatibility with lightweight papers. The new inks come in degassed 1kg pouches for reliable jetting, excellent image definition and sharpness.

The XPJ-1642WR integrates all known Mutoh XpertJet features, i.e. illuminated print platform, re-usable ink cases as well as an enhanced roll-off system with new media feed flanges.
