At the FESPA 2019 exhibition in Munich, Mutoh has received an EDP award in the category “Best Wide-format Multipurpose Printer” for its 64” / 1625 mm wide ValueJet 1627MH Hybrid printer.
The EDP award competition represents the most prestigious and valuable technical awards for the digital print business in Europe, attributed by the European Digital Press Association (EDP). Another Mutoh printer, the ValueJet 1638UR LED UV, was also nominated for an EDP award in the category “Best Roll-to-Roll printer < 170 cm”.
The new 64” wide ValueJet 1627MH hybrid inkjet printer features a hot air knife media drying system and unique CMYK + White resin-based inks, enabling direct printing on the widest range of white, transparent and coloured rigid & roll substrates. At an affordable price point starting from € 25000* including print tables, the VJ-1627MH printer is equally suited for sign & display print shops for the production of both indoor and long-term outdoor prints, as well as for graphics companies looking for a digital solution for proofing or short-run production of packaging prototypes or customised labels, even for industrial businesses specialised in thermo-forming.
“We are really delighted with the recognition by the EDP association for our continuous innovation and product improvements. This shows Mutoh’s commitment to the future, by continuously releasing products that make the difference with cutting-edge technology,” says Kenji Yasuhara, Mutoh Europe’s Managing Director.
The EDP’s (European Digital Press Association) expert commission selects the nominated products based on quality, performance, innovation and costs. The criteria are very strict and there are no votings online or any other public votes. As a result the winner products are selected on technical and performance criteria and not popularity.
