Mutoh America Introduces Falcon Outdoor Stable Printer Series
Press release from the issuing company
ORLANDO, Fla., April 3 -- Mutoh America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mutoh Industries Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, introduces the affordable Falcon Outdoor, large format Eco-solvent printer for outdoor applications. At $14,995 for the Falcon Outdoor 46 and $19,995 for the Falcon Outdoor 62, the cost of entry into outdoor durable digital printing has never been more affordable. The Falcon Outdoor is a complete solution, as each unit ships with individually controlled pre and post heaters for instant drying and expanded media capability; automatic media take-up system for unattended printing; Mutoh PosterShop 5.5 Lite RIP software and a starter kit of Falcon Outdoor Eco ink. The Falcon Outdoor also includes a one-year on-site warranty.
"The Falcon Outdoor continues Mutoh's commitment to provide a range of products for indoor and outdoor printing applications," said Guy Cipresso, Vice President of Business Development for Mutoh America. "Mutoh is the only printer manufacturer to offer an affordable large format outdoor solution with the Falcon Outdoor Series, as well as an outdoor large format production printing system with the Toucan NXPro Series. The typical sign shop customer looking for a low cost of entry outdoor solution has been confused and apprehensive about purchasing printers that have been modified by distributors or ink companies. The Falcon Outdoor will ease their worries as it is produced by the world's leading manufacturer of large format piezo-electric inkjet printers and backed by a one year on-site warranty."
The Falcon Outdoor uses newly developed Eco-solvent inks that do not require special ventilation or environmental equipment. The Eco Solvent inks are not only UV durable, but offer the widest color gamut when compared to other inks in this class. Eco-Solvent inks are offered in six colors, cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan & light magenta. Prints are UV and water resistant for up to three years outdoors. Lamination is recommended for applications that require abrasion resistance. Eco-Solvent ink consumption for the Falcon Outdoor printers is extremely low, consuming only 4.66 ml per sq. meter in 360 dpi print mode and 7.98 ml per sq. meter in 720 dpi mode. Falcon Outdoor print speeds vary between 14.49 sq. meter/h at 360 x 180 dpi, 3.6 sq. meter/h at 720 x 720 dpi and 0.68 sq. meter/h at 1440 x 1440 dpi.
The new Mutoh Falcon Outdoor offers 360, 720 and 1440 dpi -printing using drop-on-demand piezoelectric inkjet print heads, and is based on the popular Falcon Inkjet Series. With its flexibility in resolution and durability, the Falcon Outdoor is well suited for outdoor poster printing, banners, long-term backlit signage, building and construction announcements, vehicle graphics, durable indoor graphics, and POS displays.
