Wide format Online was treated to a sneak preview of the first XpertJet 1341SR Pro 54" (1325mm) printer to land in Australia. A full review will appear next week but we can say with confidence that, for a low-cost 54" eco-solvent printer, the results are outstanding thanks to new printhead, screening, ripping and drop placement technologies. It's also considerably faster than the previous generation.
|The new Mutoh XpertJet 1341SR Pro is compact, lightweight and delivers stunning colour, definition and smoothness|
If you need a compact, easy to handle top-quality printer - look no further than the new Mutoh 1341SR Pro announced 2 weeks ago. The first one has been set up in Mutoh's Sydney showroom and we were privileged to get a close look first-up.
If space is an issue for your shop - this baby is the answer. If the weight of other 54" printers concerns you, adding to installation, OHS and freight costs, this new Mutoh at 60kg plus stand at 26kg is the answer. Best of all, if you want unbelievably smooth fine detail and an astonishing colour gamut on most types of media up to 1.3mm thick - look no further. Production at 15 sqm/hr is assured and even higher quality at slower multi-pass speeds.
The eco-solvent inks are GreenGuard certified so forget all the wrong information you've been fed about ink with the word 'solvent' in the name. Did you know that water is actually a solvent by definition? It's referred to as the 'Universal Solvent' because a solvent is just a solution that enables particles to be dissolved in it!
The results we saw were eye-popping and there are a lot of reasons for this - more in our review next week.
All for an RRP of $15,995!
We reckon Mutoh's on a winner with this one, particularly with the franchise chain, and smaller print shops looking to hitch a ride on the quality signage market. Available through all Mutoh dealers across Australia and New Zealand.
