Maximise Profit With Mutoh Intelligent Interweaving (i2) Print Technology
Mutoh's award-winning 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.  Watch the video to learn more.

Print Automation with Mutoh DropMaster Technology
Get constant, uncompromised print quality on any thickness/weight of transfer paper effortlessly, thanks to Mutoh's proprietary DropMaster Technology.

Specifically developed for Mutoh's dual head ValueJet models, DropMaster is a revolutionary print automation technique which eliminates the need for cumbersome, 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.

Dye Sublimation Transfer Papers
The ValueJet 1938WX prints on all typical dye sublimation transfer papers from 66 to 150gsm.  The printer is equipped with an automatic sheet-off function, manual cutting is also available using the dedicated cutting groove on the media guide.

Media Handling
The ValueJet 1938WX can handle 2" and 3" rolls.  The printer comes with a stand and integrated roll holders.  Different winding/unwinding systems are available for roll to roll applications.
