MUTOH announces two new direct to object (DTO) printers


Mutoh Europe NV, EMEA business unit of Mutoh Industries Co Ltd (Japan), has announced two new direct to object (DTO) XperJet printers—XPJ-461UF and XPJ-661UF. The new compact 6-colour UV LED flatbed production printers are engineered to respond to the increasing demand for added value personalised prints and bespoke small-lot production of commercial and industrial print applications. The printers are an addition to MUTOH’s existing DTO printer models, the popular ValueJet 426UF and 626UF. Developed and manufactured in Japan, the new XpertJet desktop flatbed printers feature various product enhancements such as a new multi-language intuitive OLED display.

Typical applications of the new DTO printers encompass prints on phone covers, personalised gifts, photo products, promotional items such as pens, lighters and USB sticks, souvenirs, awards, small signs, small series production or prototyping of packaging samples, decorative tiles, etc. Both printers can be setup in either CMYK or in CMYK + White + Varnish configuration and are suited for direct printing onto a wide variety of materials including three dimensional objects up to 15cm thick.
