Mutoh launches heavy duty direct-to-fabric printer

Mutoh has launched the 1.6m- and 2.2m-wide Viper TX Professional drop-on-demand inkjet printers for direct-to-fabric applications.

The machines can print onto stretchable, knitted, woven and open structure fabrics, such as PES flag, cotton, nylon, lycra, silk, poplin and more to create samples and production runs of customised fabrics.

Both printers feature a heavy-duty unwinding system for rolls weighing up to 150kg, as well as meander control to accurately guide the fabric onto the integrated adhesive belt, and a washing unit to prevent 'back printing'.

The printhead comprises eight piezo inkjet heads with two sets of 180 nozzles and delivers typical production speeds at 1.6m wide of up to 32sqm per hour and a maximum of 63sqm per hour.

The units can be configured with up to eight colours and the printers are available now through Mutoh resellers across EMEA.
