The Mutoh ValueJet 1948WX is a transfer sublimation printer designed for print houses looking for the kind of performance that’s demanded in today’s fast turnaround environment.
With a top speed of 194m²/h, the VJ-1948WX boasts production print speeds of up to 125m²/h and 720x720dpi photographic quality prints for close viewing at 67 m²/h.
Using Mutoh genuine sublimation inks, the VJ-1948WX can be set up in a dual-CMYK configuration for speed; or 8-colour configuration, including 3 shades of black for smooth, neutral tones when needed.
Designed for sports apparel and soft signage, the printed transfer paper can be pressed to a range of sublimation-suitable fabrics.
The ValueJet 1948WX handles transfer paper rolls up to 100Kg with the optional motorised unwind/wind-up system.
Easily outclassing competitors, the VJ-1948WX achieves speeds around 60% faster than its rivals.
Designed with advanced features that increase productivity and quality, the VJ-1948WX includes Mutoh’s Dropmaster Technology that reduces the need to continually do bidirectional alignments, as is the norm on other less capable machines; and Intelligent Interweave (I2) print technique that virtually eliminates banding.
