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 ValueJet 1638UH'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 3.8pl to 28pl.

LED UV Inks for Ultra-Sharp, Safe & Ready to use Prints
Mutoh's LED UV inks are zero VOC liquids which do not contain hazardous air pollutants (non-HAP).  Two powerful long-life (14.250 hours) LED UV lamps are Mercury and Lead free and ensure Ozone free, safe and ultra-sharp prints, which are ready to be used or laminated immediately after printing.

LED lamps don't create heat, making the technology extremely well suited for handling heat sensitive media as opposed to 'classic' UV or water-based resin ink technologies generating huge amounts of heat or relying on high temperatures to dry ink.

Intelligent Interweaving print technology (I²)
I² drastically reduces or even completely eliminates defects such as horizontal banding, ink mottle, bleed and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.  To achieve this, ink is laid down in carefully optimised wave forms as opposed to the straight lines used on most wide format printers.

Roll & Rigid Media
With front and rear roller tables, the printer accommodates rigid materials up to 15mm thickness with a maximum weight of 15kg.  Media thickness is measured electronically and head height is adjusted automatically.  Media loading is quick and easy with the media alignment option.  For motorised media take up, the VJ-1638UH can be equipped with the tension winder 30 system (for rolls up to 30kg), or alternatively with a motorised roll off/take up system for rolls up to 80kg or 100kg.  Conversion from rigid to roll or vice versa only takes a few minutes.

Media Options

The ValueJet 1638UH will deliver high quality prints on a huge variety of roll and rigid media including non conventional media types such as ABS, aluminium board, cardboard, flutted and corrugated boards, glass, heat sensitive flex media like Polyolefin-based (PVC-free) self-adhesive films, non-woven PC, PE, PET, PES, PMMA (acrylic), PP, PS, PVC.
