Maximize your Profit with Mutoh Intelligent Interweaving (i²) Print Technology
The ValueJet 1638WX incorporates Mutoh’s award-winning Intelligent Interweaving (i²) print technology, enabling a drastic reduction or even total elimination of the typical difficulties inherent to conventional digital inkjet printing, such as horizontal banding, step mismatch banding and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.
One of the biggest benefits of this proprietary Mutoh print technology is that it offers predictable and repeatable output quality, therefore bringing an unprecedented level of ease of use to the printer operator. ValueJet printer users will be able to print ideal quality images fit for purpose every time, in the shortest possible time.Extreme Print Automation with Mutoh DropMaster Technology
Get constant and uncompromised print quality on any thickness/weight of transfer paper you feed into your VJ-1638WX … effortlessly, thanks to Mutoh’s proprietary DropMaster technology!
Specifically developed for Mutoh’s dual head ValueJet models, DropMaster is a revolutionary print automation technique which eliminates the need for cumbersome and time consuming media dependent head adjustments. Knowing the media thickness and consequently the drop-throw distance between print head and media surface, DropMaster is capable of automatically recalculating and adjusting the uni/bi-directional fire timings. It does this regardless of resolution and print speed.
