MUTOH America, a leader in wide-format inkjet printers, cutters and inks, is launching the next generation of UV-LED printers, the VJ-1638UH Mark II and VJ-1638UR Mark II. They combine with VerteLith™, MUTOH’s new genuine RIP software, to create dynamic output, producing the best-possible gradients, skin tones and vivid colors.
VerteLith optimizes the performance of the VJ-1638UH Mark II and VJ-1638UR Mark II printers and features i-WeaveUVEX 2 Intelligent Interweave Print Technology, MUTOH Clear Tone half tone technology, MUTOH CYMK wide color gamut ICC profile and auto-generation of Pantone© coated/uncoated spot colors. These state-of-the- art MUTOH technologies streamline workflow, increase productivity and deliver high-quality output at faster production speeds.
The VJ-1638UH/VJ-1638UR Mark II printers include:
• Staggered dual print heads with UV-LED lamps on both sides.
• MUTOH UV-LED inks, which allow printing on transparent/colored media with a 6-color CMYK+White+Varnish configuration
• Multi-layer printing capability
The VJ-1638UH Mark II is a hybrid printer with the capability to print on rigid substrates as well as roll media, while the VJ-1638UR Mark II prints on roll media only. A 66lb take-up system is standard on the VJ-1638UR Mark II: The 66lb and 88lb take-up systems are optional. The VJ-1638UH Mark II 66lb, 88lb and 220lb take-up systems are all options on this printer model.
VerteLith is bundled with FlexiDESIGNER MUTOH Edition 21 and is included free of charge with VJ-1638UH Mark II and VJ-1638UR Mark II printers, representing a $2,199.00 value. Other MUTOH models will be supported by VerteLith later in the year.
