Mutoh Osprey 2.6 meter solvent based ink printer Print

My guess would be that this nice-looking printer is intended eventually to replace the Mutoh Toucan with a better designed chassis, more accurate feeding, and more robust take-up system.

As soon as the Mutoh Osprey is ready for shipping and is accessible to us, we will consider doing a site-visit case study to see if the new design has improved over the Toucan.

At ISA there were announcements of the Mutoh XJet, but the printer physically turned up in the Vutek booth as the Vutek UltraVu 260. Then this new printer was shown by Mutoh Europe at FESPA.

Hewlett-Packard has now introduced their latex ink technology in a new HP Designjet L65500 printer. FLAAR has already inspected a beta test site in Europe and has been trained on latex ink in Israel a month before. Our preliminary report on the HP latex ink is now available, and a report on the printer will be issued as soon as we can spend inspect an advanced beta unit in the future.
