MUTOH to Unveil Innovative Water-Based UV Digital Print Technology at Drupa 2024 : HydrAton 1642

Monday 10. June 2024 - At Drupa 2024, the worlds largest Print & Media exhibition starting today, MUTOH Europe nv, EMEA headquarters of the Japan-based wide format printer manufacturer MUTOH INDUSTRIES LTD., will preview a new digital printer called HydrAton 1642 (Hall 9-B10).

This 64″ (162 cm) wide roll-to-roll printer integrates innovative water-based UV print technology, underlining MUTOH’s ongoing commitment to sustainable practices as well as safer work environments.
The MUTOH HydrAton 1642 wide-format printer represents a new technology segment, featuring revolutionary print/dry technology and a unique ink film formation process on the printed media, collaboratively developed by MUTOH Japan’s large-format printer R&D division and Fujifilm’s AQUAFUZE ink technology team.
The synergy between the HydrAton 1642 and AQUAFUZE ink technology will meet a multitude of market requirements. Featuring two AccuFine piezo drop-on-demand print heads, the HydrAton 1642 can print on a wide array of substrates without the need of a pre-coat primer or optimizer, including paper, synthetic fabrics, technical textiles, heat-sensitive eco-friendly substrates, even PVC. Prints have a very thin ink film, a soft feel and high scratch-resistance.
Fujifilm’s patented AQUAFUZE ink technology combines the benefits of UV LED and water-based inkjet technologies in one ink formulation. It features low-temperature drying and excellent jetting stability. The inks are low-odour and safety compliant. AQUAFUZE is a registered trademark of the Fujifilm Group.
