Kona Cutting Plotters
Kona is a high-performance cutting plotter series designed for professional sign cutting applications.
Enabling the finest cutting quality with excellent tracking, the Kona cutting plotters will be available in three models : Kona 760 (maximum media width of 1000 mm), Kona 1400 (maximum media width of 1640 mm) and Kona 1650, offering a maximum media width of 1890 mm.
Mutoh’s new Kona cutters are equipped with several new features promoting extra user comfort, such as a full-colour 3.5” LCD touch screen, a newly designed automatic sheet-off mechanism, as well as a “dual” roll support system.  Media support rollers allow handling of regular vinyl.  A second optional roll-off system is available for contactless handling of pre-printed rolls.  This will avoid damage to freshly printed rolls.
Viper TX Extreme Printers

Utilising VOC free water based direct disperse inks, Viper TX Extreme printers will print on polyester-based fabrics with open and closed structure and are suited for low-cost high-quality sample creation (one-offs) and small production volumes.
