MUTOH Unveils New XpertJet 1642WR Pro Dye-sublimation Printer
MUTOH America has announced the release of the new XpertJet 1642WR Pro dye-sublimation printer. This mid-level entry point printer features new extra-wide MUTOH AccuFine dual print heads which achieve best-in-class dot placement accuracy at improved production print speeds starting at 171 sq ft/hr. It is ideal for home décor, soft signage, sports apparel, and fashion applications.
The newly-developed MUTOH AccuFine print head features 11% more nozzles and 33% greater nozzle length. This print head improves the accuracy of dot placement by 20 percent over the previous print head. The XPJ-1642WR Pro features automated processes that save time, increase production, and allow for printing on thinner and lighter transfer papers.
These features include:
- DH21 Dye-sublimation ink – achieves high-density colors, superior color rendition, and excellent jetting and color stability.
- DropMaster 2 – this sensor on the carriage automatically calibrates bi-directional alignments.
- Nozzle Area Select – uses blocks of active nozzles to print if clogged nozzles fail to recover.
- Feed Master – built-in sensor allows for automatic media feed adjustments.
- Media Tracker – prints a barcode prior to removing media and when unprinted media is loaded again, a built-in sensor recognizes the amount of media remaining.
“The XpertJet 1642WR Pro features technology using new MUTOH AccuFine print heads with improved accuracy for better jetting, and auto-alignment and auto-feed functions to keep the printer tuned up,” said Randy Anderson, product marketing manager for MUTOH America. “MUTOH’s DH21 dye-sublimation ink is fast drying and achieves high-density colors with less ink consumption, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.”
The XPJ-1642WR Pro is bundled with a 12-month subscription of FlexiDYESUB MUTOH Edition software, a $720.00 value.
