MUTOH Belgium wins two EDP awards

Cutting plotter and wide-format inkjet printer manufacturer Mutoh Belgium received two EDP awards, attributed by the European Digital Press association (EDP). The award “Best Alternative Ink Technology of the year 2011” goes to Mutoh's Zephyr 3D UV ink. Mutoh's Viper TX Soft Sign printer series gets an award in the category “Best Wide Format Textile Printer of the year 2011”. The awards will be distributed on the occasion of a ceremony during the Fespa Digital show in Hamburg on May 26th. The award-winning products will be displayed at Fespa Digital 2011 at Mutoh's booth (Hall A3 – E11).

The EDP awards are attributed by a committee of consultants, editors, engineers and printer industry professionals appointed by the European Digital Press Association. The technical committee selected the Mutoh Zephyr 3D UV ink for “its 200 % elongation capabilities, making it ideal for applications such as car wrapping. Until now, you couldn't use ink for car wrapping unless you used a very slow solution. Mutoh's Zephyr 3D UV ink produces 20 m²/h and is also eco friendly in terms of power consumption and is immediately dry”.

Comments from the technical committee for their selection of the Mutoh Viper TX Soft Sign printer series were “It is not the first printer with a built-in heat fixating system. The Mutoh solution differs from other textile printers with a built-in calender by the way it combines good print quality with high speeds for an affordable price”.

The EDP Association is made up of the publishers of leading European magazines devoted to digital printing and associated products. These publications cover more than 18 European countries with a readership exceeding 1.000.000 professionals. The Association grants the EDP Awards to the best products of the year introduced in the European market to acknowledge the value of the research and development tasks of the industry.

Evaluation is based on innovation and the value of the new technical abilities a product offers. This can be innovation in the technology that improves speed, quality, usability or reduces environmental impact as well as cost to the user. The EDP award logos help the digital printer users in identifying the best products in the industry.

Viper TX Soft Sign Printer Series

Mutoh's Viper TX Soft Sign series (1610 mm - 63.38” & 2210 mm – 87”) printers come as a total solution for direct printing of polyester fabrics with open or closed structure.

The engines have been tuned to Mutoh's VOC free water based direct disperses inks to deliver top print quality. Prints are immediately dried and heat fixed by the integrated fabric drying and fixation system, making them immediately useable.

Producing durable images with exceptional image quality and brilliant colours at typical production speeds up to 37 m²/h, Mutoh Viper TX Soft Sign printers are suited for a wide variety of applications.
