OOSTENDE, Belgium , September 5, 2023 (press release) –

Mutoh Europe nv, a subsidiary of Mutoh Industries Co. Ltd., Japan, has announced introduction of the Mutoh XpertJet 1462UF in the EMEA market. This 6-colour (C, M, Y, K, White, Varnish) UV LED flatbed direct-to-object printer with moving gantry has a table size of 1,420 mm (55.9”) x 700 mm (27.5”) and can print onto objects up to 150 mm (5.91”) thick. The print table integrates a four zone vacuum bed, supporting weights up to 50 kg/m².

Previewed at Fespa 2023, the new XpertJet 1462UF A1+ flatbed printer is an addition to Mutoh’s existing award-winning XpertJet A3+ and A2+ desktop direct-to-object printers. Next to a larger print table, the XPJ-1462UF features two print heads and two brand new wide UV lamps to drastically enhance high quality multi-layer bi-directional print productivity. The new printer will cater a wide range of requirements, including 2.5D direct-to-object, industrial, packaging, awards and sign & display printing, including ADA compliant braille.

Stephan Heintjens, Product Marketing and Product Application Manager for Mutoh Europe comments: “We are extremely excited about this printer and are delighted to make it available to the Europe, Middle East and Africa markets. Feedback from the prelaunch at Fespa has been very positive. Having the new XpertJet 1462UF printer means that Mutoh now offers a complete direct-to-object range covering small format as well as the new bigger format, which is a perfect match for the popular 70x100cm screenprinting format. The XpertJet 1462UF has a sturdy chassis for extremely precise ink dot placement and high quality print results.”

He continues “With the XpertJet 1462UF, we have drastically increased the overall productivity to meet the quality and speed requirements of the size. The printer has two print heads on board mounted in a staggered setup and two brand new 4” multi-segment UV LED curing lamps. This setup enables us to produce two layer prints in one pass at double the speed of printers having only one print head and curing lamp. The machine also comes fully pre-mounted, enabling fast, efficient, easy and precise installation. The print table with integrated 4 zone vacuum table has holes to fix jigs, allowing great flexibility in media selection. The printer is powered by our VerteLith genuine RIP software for which we now also have emboss printing presets as well as a structure library with 100 different texture patterns.

This is a machine that will prove to be very attractive to lots of businesses, in particular screen printers looking to add more digital direct-to-object printing to their workflow and industrial printers wanting to add more versatility and colour to their services,” concludes Stephan Heintjens.
