A Perfect Solution: MUTOH and ONYX Team up Again
Mutoh America and ONYX Graphics, two highly recognized leaders in the digital printing industry, are
working together once again. Mutoh’s high performance ValueJet 1608 BIO Hybrid printer is bundled with
ONYX® RIPCenterTM, a perfect solution to help their mutual customers reduce costs by saving time and
effortlessly producing flawless quality prints.
"We are excited about the new partnership we have just formed with ONYX Graphics. I feel this is the right
software for the new ValueJet 1608 BIO Hybrid printer," said Randy Rickert, General Manager of Mutoh
ONYX RIPCenter is designed to enable users to immediately begin producing professional color prints. ONYX
RIPCenter includes a PostScript® RIP, so both raster and PostScript files can be processed and printed.
The product will ship with media profiles for 20 different substrates and 50 different print modes. Other features
include job nesting to reduce media waste, ink tracking for job cost estimates, RIP and print on-the-fly, easy
recalibration, and PANTONE® Spot Color matching.
"ONYX Graphics has worked closely with Mutoh to ensure that RipCenter compliments the powerful features
included in the ValueJet 1608 BIO Hybrid," said Jeb Hurley, President and CEO of ONYX Graphics. "We are
pleased to be working with Mutoh to deliver an enhanced level of compatibility and output quality that our
mutual customers expect."
The ValueJet 1608 BIO Hybrid uses Mutoh’s Drop-On Demand-Piezo Drive Method that is supported by
ONYX Graphics. The ValueJet 1608 BIO Hybrid uses Mutoh’s Patented Intelligent Interweaving Print
Technology (i2); where ink is laid down carefully in optimized wave forms, resulting in virtually no banding.
A combination of these features reaps many benefits to the user, saving time and obtaining impeccable
print quality every time.
