The ValueJet 1608HS reaches board
printing speeds up to 120 sq.ft./hr. in production mode, but you also
get a printer that you can use for both car wraps and rigid substrates
with equal ease. Mutoh’s new ValueJet 1608 Hybrid printer prints
directly onto substrates up to 10mm thick, including corrugated
plastics, polystyrene, pvc, acrylic, polycarbonate, foam board, aluminum
composite, banner material, vinyl, wall coverings and more. Auto
thickness adjustment helps streamline workflow.
Mutoh’s exceptional new MP Ink is BIO based being
composed of 60% plant derived substances. MP Ink contains no harmful
VOC’s or heavy metals and has fast drying times. The ValueJet 1608
Hybrid features drop–on–demand micro piezo inkjet technology. This
4-color printer has a maximum resolution of 1440 dpi and automatic media
thickness detection. Ink is available in 880 ml ink packs.
Using dynamic variable dot imaging technology, each
ink droplet is individually adjusted to provide high speed and high
quality with low ink consumption. Each head allows print resolutions of
1400 x 720 dpi, 1440 x 1440 dpi, 540 x 720 dpi and 720 x 720 dpi.
The ValueJet 1608HS incorporates Mutoh’s renowned
Intelligent Interweave print technology (i˛). Ink is laid down carefully
in optimized wave forms, not in straight lines used in traditional
printing practices. This approach drastically reduces or even eliminates
typical inkjet printing effects such as horizontal banding, step
mismatch banding, ink mottle, etc. In short, i˛ will allow
bi-directional printing of all images, even for the most critical jobs.
The ValueJet 1608HS is the first printer in its class
to include an integrated spectrophotometer. Regular use of the
SpectroVue VM-10 helps to ensure optimum color reproduction, enhances
image quality by utilizing the full color gamut of the printer, and
achieves a higher level of color consistency. A 60 day trial version of
Onyx Production House is included with every purchase of the ValueJet
1608HS with SpectroVue VM-10, to allow full utilization of on-board
color profiling capabilities.
The take-up system, flatbed tables and air pump-dryer
are all included, as is a one-year on-site warranty, making the ValueJet
1608HS the most economical hybrid printer on the market.
