Mutoh Quality Manufacturing
Mutoh (pronounced Moo-Toe) is the one of the largest large format printer manufacturers in the world.
They are the largest manufacturer of piezo-electric head outdoor printers. In addition to Mutoh- branded printers, they build (or have built) printers for Fuji, Gerber, Kodak, Xerox, Epson, Oce and more
Mutoh is an ISO 9000- certified manufacturer with class-leading quality control and reliability; which is why so many other top tier companies rely on them.
Industry Awards & Innovation
Mutoh’s genius lies not just in building a better printer. Mutoh’s product line combines consistent refinement with innovative new products to create new business opportunities for the end user. This is reflected in the fact that Mutoh has won the prestigious SGIA Product Of the Year Award two years in a row with the ValueJET 1638 and 2638. At the 2016 SGIA EXPO, Mutoh took home three Product of the Year Awards for the ValueJET 1628X, 1638UH UV-led printer and 1938TX textile printer. In 2018 Mutoh was awarded four Product of the Year awards for the ValueJET 1624X, 2638X, 1638UH and 626UF printers. 2020 saw Mutoh take out six Printing United Alliance Product of the Year awards (formerly known as the SGIA Product of the Year), awards). And for the 10th year in a row, in 2021 Mutoh was awarded yet again, this time taking out 5 categories in the newly renamed Printing United Pinnacle Awards.
Patented Print Technology
Mutoh utilizes the latest Epson single-head technology and a smaller ink droplet size than other manufacturers. This supports higher resolution and smoother gradients.
But Mutoh print quality goes beyond the quality of the Epson print heads. Mutoh pioneered and patented a unique print algorithm called “Intelligent Interweave” (we call it “Wave Printing”) that lays down ink in overlapping waves. Intelligent Interweave or I2 offers several benefits.
• First and foremost, wave printing virtually eliminates the “piezo banding” problems that plague other printers using the same print head technology.
• In addition to removing troublesome banding issues, wave printing allows end users to produce high resolution prints at speeds that used to require the use of two or three print heads. Being able to produce at high speed with high resolution and a single head makes the printer more reliable and economical.
