ValueJet 1938TX

75” Wide ValueJet 1938TX Direct Textile Printer


  • Dual staggered head design with latest drop-on-demand piezo inkjet technology
  • Variable drop printing - wide range of droplets & three drop families. Small droplets ideal for light fabrics. Larger droplets ideal for thicker fabrics requiring higher ink loads
  • Head height up to 6 mm to accommodate a wide range of fabrics
  • Typical high quality production speeds up to 40 m²/h
  • Newly engineered high end fabric feeding, front & back tensioning and motorized take-up system for media weights up to 100 kg
  • Integrated gutter system for open textiles

  Specifically targeted at sampling of short run on-demand & local digital production of garments, upholstery, fashion, swimwear, interior deco fabrics, home textiles, flags, etc.., the VJ-1938TX - a 75" (1910 mm) wide dual staggered head printer - combines proven technology with a high-precision mechanical design.

Developed in Japan, Mutoh’s ValueJet 1938TX incorporates technology proven to be faster, more reliable, more cost effective and more efficient to bring you the best output for your application.

For Garment Printing Professionals
The 1938TX can print on closed, open non-stretch and limited stretch fabrics thanks to the incorporated ink gutter and a newly engineered high-end fabric feeding, tensioning and take-up system which will guarantee worry-free feeding and transport of fabrics. The preferred solution for garment printing professionals!

Ink Setup Possibilities
Using Mutoh’s new water-based textile pigmented inks, the VJ-1938TX enables direct printing on cotton fabrics, rayon or mixed fibre fabrics.

The VJ-1938TX printer can also jet Mutoh’s genuine DS2-series universal sublimation inks for direct printing onto polyester fabrics.

The ValueJet 1938TX printer will deliver you money-making flexibility for many years to come !

The Printer’s Heart Beats Quality

 

A staggered dual head setup with latest generation variable drop piezo print heads is at the heart of the VJ-1938TX’s stunning performance. Each 1440-nozzle head (8 lines of 180 nozzles) incorporates four colour sections, divided in two nozzle rows with 360 nozzles per colour.

The integrated print heads are capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.3 pl to 45.3 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.

 


Worry-Free Fabric Handling

The VJ-1938TX comes standard with a motorised unwinder/winder system. Perfect fabric transport is ensured by a sensor driven front and back tensioning system, allowing perfect roll preparation for after treatment on a calendar, fixation unit, wash or even steam unit, depending on the chosen ink chemistry. To handle different roll widths, the front and back core fixation flanges can be quickly and easily slid into position.

Thanks to the head height range between 2.5 mm and 6 mm, the operator can load both short and long fibre fabrics, without having to worry about print head perturbation. A textile tensioning cylinder close to the print zone ensures that the fabric is kept under equal tension over the full printer width during printing
