Mutoh XpertJet 661UF Flatbed LED UV Printer vs XpertJet 461UF Flatbed LED UV Printer
Japanese manufacturers have a well established reputation for quality and precision, but not always INNOVATION. But that’s what Mutoh America and ColDesi is delivering to the US Market with the new XpertJet flatbed LED UV printer line up.
The first change in the Xpertjet series vs the Valuejet printers of similar sizes is the Depth of print.
One reason that has made ColDesi’s Compress UV Printers (compressuvprinter.com) – the iUV600s and iUV1200s so attractive is not just the low cost of entry, but the 11.8” depth of print. That provides flexibility to print on tumblers, assembled packages, and even basketballs.
The Xpert uv printer designers jet has cleverly figured out a way to go get up to 5.8” of depth from a much smaller package:
-XPJ 461UF comes with a 2.75”depth, but that INCLUDES the vacuum bed. Mutoh has made that vacuum bed removable to get you that extra depth of print.
-XPJ 661UF comes with that 5.8” depth natively. That includes leaving the vacuum bed in place.
The other big addition to the XpertJet line is the “local dimming control technology”. This breakthrough allows you to print CMYKW plus a varnish all in one pass! This cuts way down on print time and makes production that much faster and easier.
There are are some other technical changes as well, including:
- New purpose built Epson print head
- Digital touch control panel
- Local dimming lamp
- Glass lamp filter
- Larger printable are – with built in mark for print area
- External waste tank
- Premium 2.5D printing over 1mm for ADA/Braille
In addition to these standard features built into the Mutoh XpertJet UV Printers, ColDesi exclusively packages them with the Compress RIP and Compress Designer software applications.
Here’s a great example of how the Mutoh printers work with the unique features of the Compress UV Software: youtu.be/x69N-lfjgg8
The larger of the 2 new uv printers, the Mutoh XpertJet 661UF has a few important advantages over the 461UF, including:
- Vacuum platen is included with every 661, while optional on the 461
- Larger print area – 19.02” x 23.3” bed size vs 19” x 13” in the 461
- Auto bed height adjustment vs manual
