Mutoh 2638 Valuejet Dual Head 2.6m Signage Printer

Mutoh 2638 Valuejet Dual Head 2.6m Signage Printer

 

The new ValueJet 2638 dual-head wide format printer incorporates:

Mutoh's award-winning Intelligent Interweaving print technology        I² drastically reduces or even completely eliminates defects such as horizontal banding, ink mottle, bleed and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.  To achieve this, ink is laid down in carefully optimised wave forms as opposed to the straight lines used on most wide format printers.  Watch the video to learn more.


Staggered Dual Head Setup
The new ValueJet incorporates a new generation 'wide' 1440 nozzle piezo drop-on-demand printhead.  Each colour section has 360 nozzles (2 x 180 nozzle rows/colour).  The head is capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.5pl to 35pl, allowing a wider range of ink dots at faster speed.

The new dual head offers a unique blend of high speed and high quality.  As well as featuring Mutoh's new wide piezo printhead, higher carriage speeds and ink firing frequencies and adapted weaving algorithms give an impressive increase in production speed as well as optimised ink spread and improved drying.


Ink Compatibility


Mutoh Ultra Eco Inks are Mutoh’s most popular inks for outdoor sign applications on a wide range of uncoated and coated substrates. The inks are based on non-aggressive solvents and do not spread any harmful VOCs in the working environment. As a result, there is no need for forced ventilation. Available in easy-to-use cassettes, Eco Ultra inks are Mutoh’s third generation of eco inks featuring improved ink fixation, better drying, higher print speeds and improved scratch resistance. Prints made with Eco Ultra inks are UV and water resistant for up to three years outdoors*.

* : For heavy-duty applications where mechanical stress is involved (floor & vehicle graphics), lamination is required. Stabilisation is required prior to lamination.

Mutoh’s Universal Mild Solvent inks (UMS) are Mutoh’s fourth generation mild solvent inks. The UMS inks have been specifically developed for volume-oriented users. Available in cassettes & bulk liter bottles, the UMS inks feature best-in-class ingredients for optimum speed and quality performance.  The inks are based on a new generation of milder & non-aggressive solvents and do not spread any harmful VOCs in the working environment. They are virtually odour-free and do not require any forced ventilation. The Mutoh UMS CMYK ink set covers 83 % of the Pantone C® colour chart.

The unique mix of nano size, high durability pigments & resins will individually encapsulate each colour pigment, enables optimum adhesion of the pigments to the substrate and creates a uniform, smooth - gloss preserving - ink layer. Prints made with UMS inks are water resistant and offer an outdoor UV-resistance of up to three years*.

* : For heavy-duty applications where mechanical stress is involved (floor & vehicle graphics), lamination is required. Stabilisation is required prior to lamination.

  • Quality – 720x1440 dpi: 17.0 m²/h
  • Production – 720x720 dpi: 36.0 m²/h

Pre-defined print modes will enable the operator to easily select the appropriate settings for the required speed / quality. Experienced users can also set up print mode parameters to their requirements. This printer produces top quality graphics with vibrant and crisp colours, flawless solid colours and unrivalled smooth gradations.


Wide Choice of Media

The ValueJet 2638 printer can handle 2” and 3” rolls. To cope with the higher print speeds and in view of drying efficiency, the machine incorporates a redesigned print platen structure with three individually controlled heating elements. The heating elements will tackle media pre-heating, ink fixation and drying of the prints.  Using Eco Ultra  or Universal Mild Solvent inks, this printer is ideally suited to deliver top quality images when printing directly onto a wide range of low-cost standard available uncoated PVC, banner and soft sign materials as well as for coated substrates.

The printer comes with a stand with integrated roll holders.  Different motorised winding/unwinding systems are available for roll-to-roll production.

  • Newly designed keyboard with easy & logical layout
  • Automatic cutting function
  • Special ink subtanks enabling the user to remove empty ink cassettes & load new ones during printing, without any interruption of the printing process
  • A tiltable ink cassette holder to save space & enable the use of different ink volumes
  • i² print technology – offers predictable output quality, therefore bringing an unprecedented level of user comfort to the printer operator

Applications

Targeted at the sign & display market, the Mutoh ValueJet high speed, high quality ValueJet 2638 printer will address the needs of sign makers & commercial printers focusing on high volume production of outdoor prints. The printers are suited for the production of long-term outdoor posters, signs and banners, backlit signage, POS displays, vehicle graphics as well as high quality durable prints for indoor use.
