Staggered Dual Head Setup


The ValueJet 1638 printer incorporates a staggered dual head setup with latest generation piezo drop-on-demand variable drop

Staggered Dual Head Setup


The ValueJet 1638 printer incorporates a staggered dual head setup with latest generation piezo drop-on-demand variable drop “wide model” print heads. Each 1440-nozzle head (8 lines of 180 nozzles) incorporates four colour sections, each divided in two nozzle rows with 360 nozzles per colour.


The integrated print heads are capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.5 pl to 35 pl. Bottom line, they can produce a wider range of ink dots, which are moreover jetted at a much faster speed compared to other print heads on the market. The result is faster output speeds and moreover a much better print quality at higher output speeds.


Trustworthy Eco Ultra Inks for Graphics Creating a Lasting Impression


Mutoh Eco Ultra Inks are by far the most popular inks on the market 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.

The ValueJet 1638 incorporates Mutoh’s award-winning Intelligent Interweaving (i²) print technology, enabling a drastic reduction or even total elimination of the typical difficulties inherent to conventional digital inkjet printing, such as horizontal banding, step mismatch banding and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.

ValueJet printer users will be able to print ideal quality images fit for purpose every time, in the shortest possible time.

Wide Choice of Media


The ValueJet 1638 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.
