The Mutoh ValueJet 1608HS reaches board printing speeds up to 120 sq.ft./hr. in production mode, but you also get a printer that you can use for both car wraps and rigid substrates with equal ease. Mutoh’s new ValueJet 1608 Hybrid Printer prints directly onto substrates up to 10mm thick, including corrugated plastics, polystyrene, pvc, acrylic, polycarbonate, foam board, aluminum composite, banner material, vinyl, wall coverings and more. Auto thickness adjustment helps streamline workflow.
Mutoh’s exceptional new MP Ink is BIO based being composed of 60% plant derived substances. MP Ink contains no harmful VOC’s or heavy metals and has fast drying times. The ValueJet 1608 Hybrid features drop–on–demand micro piezo inkjet technology. This 4-color printer has a maximum resolution of 1440 dpi and automatic media thickness detection. Ink is available in 880 ml ink packs.
Using dynamic variable dot imaging technology, each ink droplet is individually adjusted to provide high speed and high quality with low ink consumption. Each head allows print resolutions of 1400 x 720 dpi, 1440 x 1440 dpi, 540 x 720 dpi and 720 x 720 dpi.
The ValueJet 1608HS incorporates Mutoh’s renowned Intelligent Interweave print technology (i²). Ink is laid down carefully in optimized wave forms, not in straight lines used in traditional printing practices. This approach drastically reduces or even eliminates typical inkjet printing effects such as horizontal banding, step mismatch banding, ink mottle, etc. In short, i² will allow bi-directional printing of all images, even for the most critical jobs.
The ValueJet 1608HS is the first printer in its class to include an integrated spectrophotometer. Regular use of the SpectroVue VM-10 helps to ensure optimum color reproduction, enhances image quality by utilizing the full color gamut of the printer, and achieves a higher level of color consistency. A 60 day trial version of Onyx Production House is included with every purchase of the ValueJet 1608HS with SpectroVue VM-10, to allow full utilization of on-board color profiling capabilities.
The take-up system, flatbed tables and air pump-dryer are all included, as is a one-year on-site warranty, making the ValueJet 1608HS the most economical hybrid printer on the market.
