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

Mutoh Europe nv, EMEA business unit of Mutoh Industries Co. Ltd., Japan, is pleased to announce that it won a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2024 Pick Award Outstanding High-Production CMYK Eco-Solvent/ Latex 54”/64” Printer from Keypoint Intelligence for its XpertJet 1682SR PRO model and MS51 sign and display inks.

Pick Awards are reserved only for products that have undergone a rigorous field testing process and deemed ‘best in class’ by experienced Keypoint Intelligence analysts.


“The Mutoh XpertJet 1682SR Pro delivered seriously good results in many areas of our rigorous test program”, said David Sweetnam, Keypoint Intelligence’s Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services. “The dual CMYK printhead setup delivered the fastest speeds we ever saw in this class of product. What’s more, the device maintains strong output quality while running in these highly productive speeds, with the largest colour gamut we have seen to date on CMYK-only ink devices. The large working colour space aided impressive halftone image reproduction and accurate spot-colour-matching results, with 15 challenging corporate logos rendered with an average variance of only DeltaE 4.0”.

Commenting on receiving the award, Mr. Takatsu, Managing Director of Mutoh EMEA said:

This new industry award for our XpertJet 1682SR Pro and MS51 sign & display inks for us is again a true recognition of the quality, reliability and productivity of our made in Japan printers. Next to GREENGUARD Gold Wallpaper category certification, we have obtained VOC emission attestations for leading standards in Europe and globally for our MS51 inks. As such, we offer XpertJet Pro printer users peace of mind for a multitude of outdoor and indoor decoration applications, including the most sensitive ones, such as hospitals and schools.”
