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-2638X’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 3.6 pl to 35.2 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.
 

 


Maximize your Profit with Mutoh’s Intelligent Interweaving (i²) Print Technology

  The ValueJet 2638X 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.

One of the biggest benefits of this proprietary Mutoh print technology is that it offers predictable and repeatable output quality, therefore bringing an unprecedented level of peace of mind to the printer operator. ValueJet printer users will be able to print ideal quality images fit for purpose every time, in the shortest possible time.

 


Extreme Print Automation with Mutoh DropMaster Technology

  Get constant and uncompromised print quality effortlessly on anything you feed into your VJ-2638X, from thin blue back paper to thick pvc banner …, thanks to Mutoh’s proprietary DropMaster technology!

Specifically developed for Mutoh’s latest generation ValueJet models, DropMaster is a revolutionary print automation technique which eliminates the need for cumbersome and time consuming media dependent head adjustments.

Knowing the media thickness and consequently the drop-throw distance between print head and media surface, DropMaster is capable of automatically recalculating and adjusting the uni/bi-directional fire timings. It does this regardless of resolution and print speed.
