Mutoh releases new A2+ and A3 LED-UV printers and supports World Sight Day

Mutoh Australia has announced the availability of two all-new benchtop UV printers, both with unique braille and raised effect capability.

Local Managing Director Russell Cavenagh says: “The Australian introduction of the XPJ-461UF and XPJ-661UF UV- LED printers continues to expand Mutoh’s roll-out of the XpertJet platform, with advanced features and enhanced user experience. These models will be popular among users looking to produce trophy and awards, signage and of course braille signage – at which they excel, personalised products, name badges, promotional products, interior décor, packaging prototypes, drinkware and much more.”

The XPJ-461UF and the XPJ-661UF offer many new features including a new sleek design along with an expanded print area of up to 483mm x 594mm on the XPJ-661UF. Both the XPJ-461 and the XPJ-661 include Mutoh’s innovative and unique UV- LED Lamp ‘Local Dimming Control Technology’ which produces glossy, semi-glossy and matte varnish printing in a single pass simultaneously with colours and /or white printing. This is achieved by using a 2-inch (50.8mm) LED-UV lamp with six zones that can be individually turned on and off.

“This represents a significant productivity increase where mixed gloss/matte/semi-matte spot varnishes are called for,” says Russell.

Mutoh’s new XPJ-461UF is a lower-investment cost A3 printer with the same advantages as its A2+ sibling. Both can print thicknesses up to 15cm and can be set-as either CMYK or CMYK + White + Varnish. The varnish inks create unique special effects and embossing, while the white ink allows for easy printing on dark materials. High-quality ADA-approved braille can be achieved using either colours or varnish, or both for the fastest high-build available.

“To celebrate the release of these two amazing printers and their braille capability, Mutoh Australia is supporting World Sight Day this year on 8 October, and donating $500 to the Fred Hollows Foundation for every printer sold between now and 24th December 2020,” reveals Russell.

“We work in an industry of visual effects so there is a great synergy between printing, seeing, and working with colour - and restoring sight, which the great Fred Hollows enabled for millions of people!”

The new Mutoh printers are available through Mutoh Australia’s network of reseller dealers.
