MUTOH SHOWS NEW EIGHT-COLOUR
Mutoh had its new 1.6m XpertJet 1682 SR Pro on the show floor, along with its multi-award winning direct to object printer and its hybrid solution, as well as roll-to-roll printers.
The XpertJet 1682 SR Pro is available in either four-colour or eight-colour versions, the twin head eco-solvent printer targeted at the car wrap and cosmetics markets, thanks to what Mutoh Australia CEO Russell Cavenagh said is the “wide gamut”, which it can achieve with the light cyan, light magenta and orange options.
It can also run dual CMYK, which effectively doubles the output speed, for says Russell, high volume shops. It is available here as of now.
Mutoh also had its direct to object (DTO) models on show, with the 461 and 661 A2+ systems printing on a plethora of different objects from thongs to golf balls. Cavenagh said, “The 661 has won the US Pinnacle award for the past two years in a row. Printing onto objects is a booming market, and one where higher values can be achieved.”
The DTO printers are certified in the US for braille printing, Cavanagh said, “With an increasing amount of new buildings now requiring interior signage in braille this is a great opportunity for any print business looking for a new revenue stream.” Mutoh has the printers available for a show special ten per cent discount until Friday.
Also on the Mutoh stand is the hybrid 1638 UH Mark II, four-colour printer, with fold away tables, the 1641 eco solvent “wrapper’s choice” CMYK printer, and the 1343 SR Pro, aimed at franchises and small print shops.
