Mutoh America, a provider of wide-format printers, was honored with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) Product of the Year Award for the ValueJet 2638X – 104 inches printer in the Solvent or Latex Ink Over 80 inches category and, the ValueJet 1638UH – 64 inch UV-LED hybrid printer in the Flatbed/Hybrid Under $100,000 category this year at the Printing United show in Dallas, Texas. The competition recognizes the latest equipment and supplies currently on the market that is advancing the industry.
“I’m proud that we won the product of the year again making it eight years in a row,” said Brian Phipps, president of Mutoh America. “It proves once again that Mutoh’s proprietary Smart Printing Technology in our ValueJet wide format printers are second to none making them best in class.”
Output devices are judged based on reports generated by the Sonoco Institute at Clemson University. “This is the only competition I know of that reports on the percentage of Adobe RGB a printer can hit,” said Ray Weiss, director of Digital Print Programs, SGIA. “We displayed the reports alongside the entries in the Awards Gallery at PRINTING United.”
