Mutoh to preview new flatbed printer at Fespa

At the Fespa 2023 exhibition in Munich, wide format printer manufacturer Mutoh, represented by Mutoh Europe for the EMEA territory, will preview a new flatbed CMYK, White & Varnish UV LED printer model with moving gantry, called XpertJet 1462UF. The new printer has a print bed of 1,470 mm (57.87") x 740 mm (29.13") and will print on a variety of substrates and products up to a height of 150 mm (5.91").

Mutoh will be offering the printer with a new generation state-of-the-art soft UV LED inks compatible with a broad range of substrates and free of any SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) ingredients.

The new printer will be an extension to Mutoh’s existing award-winning XPJ-461UF (A3+) and XPJ-661UF (A2+) direct to object desktop UV LED printer models.

Engineered & developed at Mutoh Japan, the new XpertJet 1462UF UV LED flatbed model has a print bed of 1,470 mm x 740 mm and a print area of 1,420 mm x 700 mm. The printer has an integrated multi-zone vacuum bed and is equipped with two piezo drop on demand print heads mounted in a staggered setup. The first head will print CMYK, the second head White & Varnish, which will enable 2-layer printing or braille and 2.5D structure prints without speed loss. Fast curing is enabled by two new 4" wide UV LED lamps.

The XpertJet 1462UF printer will be released later this year by Mutoh in the EMEA business area.
