Mutoh VJ-1304

Mutoh ValueJet 1304 54" Colour Printer

  • Description

    Utilising Mutoh's Eco Ultra inks, the ValueJet 1304 printer is suited for indoor and outdoor applications. The printer can handle 2" & 3" roll and cutsheet media and incorporates three individually controllable heating elements.

    The ValueJet 1304 printer incorporates a latest generation piezo drop-on-demand variable drop “wide model” print head. This 1440-nozzle head (8 lines of 180 nozzles) incorporates four colour sections, each divided in two nozzle rows with 360 nozzles per colour. As all colour sections are united in one head, there is no need for time-consuming head-to-head calibration procedures.

    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.
