About Mutoh’s XpertJet DTO printers

Developed and manufactured in Japan, the XpertJet A3+/A2+ sized desktop flatbed printers – Mutoh’s second generation DTO printers - feature various product enhancements such as an extended print area, a new multi-language intuitive OLED display, new cosmetics and a new pioneering innovation called Local Dimming Control technology.

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.
