Mutoh has recently launched the Viper TX direct textile printers, which are able to print directly onto non-stretch textile materials with open or closed structure, such as PES flag, cotton, cotton/polyester blends, silk, etc. It is targeted at short run volumes, varying from sample creation to small lot production. Application possibilities include soft signage, textile design jobs, flags, trade show graphics, home furnishings, etc.
The Viper TX incorporates technology for textile printing, eg ink gutter, cylinder, and unwinder/winder 100 system. The ink gutter, which is positioned under the printing path, collects all ink not absorbed by the textile. A waste drain collects waste ink and guides it to a waste container. The additional cylinder assures a perfect equal tension on the fabric during printing. The unwinder/winder 100 will offer perfect media tracking and straight winding of finished prints.
The machine incorporates 8 drop-on-demand 360 nozzle-heads with 8 colour channels, offering full freedom of ink set-up possibilities and resolutions up to 1440 dpi are possible. It can print at production speeds between 7 and 28 m2/ h.
