4 Variable Drop 8 Channel Print Heads

The ValueJet 1948WX model features 4 variable drop 8 channel print heads mounted in a staggered configuration, allowing a complete range of output resolutions between 360 x 360 dpi and 1440 x 1440 dpi.

The integrated print heads are capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.3 pl to 45.3 pl. Bottom line, they can produce a wider range of ink dots, which are moreover jetted at a much faster speed compared to other print heads on the market. The result is faster output speeds and moreover a much better print quality at higher output speeds.

Water-based Transfer Sublimation Inks

Mutoh water-based transfer sublimation inks, available in 1 liter bottles, offer excellent nozzle stability for high speed and high volume printing and will produce perfect image sharpness and definition. Suited for sublimation transfer paper of different weights as well as for direct printing onto polyester or mixed fibres with a high PES content, Mutoh sublimation inks offer a wide gamut with bright and vibrant colours and furthermore give you comfortable light, washing and perspiration fastness properties.
