Tek Cad to sell and support Mutoh in WA
Mutoh Australia has appointed Perth-based Tek Cad to sell and support Mutoh printers across Western Australia.
Mutoh Australia managing director Russell Cavenagh comments: “We are delighted to have partnered with an organisation like Tek Cad. We have been looking for the right partner to service our growing WA customer base and Tek Cad provides that blend of strong customer focus, technical background and market knowledge that made it an ideal fit with our own key business goals and philosophies”.
Tek Cad partner Tim Loader commented: “Mutoh manufactures a broad range of award-winning printers that are an ideal fit for our business and client base. We have long been impressed with the quality and reliability of their Japanese manufacturing, and we were particularly impressed with the new XpertJet range, so we are happy to have forged this partnership.”
The XpertJet range includes the XpertJet 1641SR, a single-head, four-colour model using Mutoh’s new MS41 eco-solvent ink and designed for high-quality low-volume print; and the XpertJet 1682SR, a staggered dual-head model with seven colours, designed for high-quality high-volume print.
According to Cavenagh, the XpertJet range has been engineered from scratch to meet the needs of professional wide-format printers.
“These printers are designed from the ground up for professionals. New extrusions, new screwless platen, new cosmetics. It’s not just changing the colour, it’s all-new,” he said. “We also have the new Dropmaster 2 technology on board, which has automatic allowance of media thicknesses to ensure nice sharp printing regardless of substrate thickness.”
Other new features of the XpertJet range include a “high-precision” aluminium rail mechanism; front access to ink cartridge holders and LAN and power cables; internal LED lighting; a built-in colour sensor for automatic bi-directional adjustment; and the Mutoh Status Monitor, which allows remote monitoring of the printer’s operation status with a smartphone or tablet.
