Oostende, Belgium. Wide format printer manufacturer MUTOH, represented by Mutoh Europe for the EMEA territory, has received a prestigious EDP award for its XpertJet 461UF / 661UF LED UV direct to object printer series in the category “Best Object Printer”. The award was presented to Mutoh yesterday by EDP’s Vice President Peter Ollen during a video conference.
Every year since 2007 Europe’s 20 leading trade magazines focused on digital production processes, united in the European Digital Press Association (EDP), evaluate, judge and honour the best products of the year introduced to the European market. The EDP Technical Committee judges the submitted products on the value of new technical abilities they offer. This can be innovation leading to improved speed, quality, usability and functionality or to reduced environmental impact as well as cost to the user.
“We are very proud to receive this prestigious and very valuable technical award for our new XpertJet direct to object printers”, says Nick Decock, Mutoh Europe’s Marketing Manager. “The EDP awards represent a strong point of reference for decision makers in the digital print industry. For Mutoh it is a token of recognition and acknowledgement of the value of our research and development and the added value innovation in our products brings to customers. The new XpertJet DTO printers feature various product enhancements such as Mutoh’s new revolutionary Local Dimming Control Technology, resulting in an important productivity and quality boost as customers are able to produce multiple varnish effects in one table movement”, Decock concludes.

The XPJ-461UF and XPJ-661UF printers will respond to the increasing demand for added value personalised prints and bespoke small-lot production of commercial and industrial print applications. Typical applications encompass personalised and/or branded gifts and souvenirs, packaging, prototypes, decorative tiles, circular objects (bottles), awards, figurines and models, custom components, small to medium format rigid signage and much more.
Both printers can be setup in either CMYK or in CMYK + White + Varnish configuration and are suited for direct printing onto a wide variety of materials including three dimensional objects up to 15 cm thick. Printing on dark coloured or clear substrates is also possible thanks to the use of white inks. Special added value finishing like spotvarnish or even stunning special effects such as special structures or embossing are possible thanks to dedicated varnish inks.
