The MUTOH HydrAton 1642 wide-format printer

The MUTOH HydrAton 1642 wide-format printer represents a new technology segment, featuring innovative 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 for 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.
