Mutoh Belgium: Stephan Heintjens
Output Magazine: Sophie Matthews-Paul
Did somebody say solvent is dead? Think again.
Mutoh’s ValueJets are a mainstay of sign and display production and now benefit from the latest, third generation of the manufacturer’s technology under the bonnet – including Dual Head technology, neatly explained in this video.
Wide-format doyenne Sophie Matthews-Paul explores these developments, plus Mutoh’s new formulation of solvent ink, with Stephan Heintjens, technical marketing and product development manager.
For core applications, Stephan points out, “solvent is still a great ink. You can not always substitute it with water-based, because you use a lot of energy, and UV doesn’t always do the trick – certainly not for low viscosity applications.”
