Falcon Outdoor Production Printers Ship

46-inch, 62-inch models available By Dave Nagel
Mutoh America has started shipping its new Falcon Outdoor line of large-format production printers. These include two new models, both designed for outdoor applications. They're available in 46-inch and 62-inch configurations.

The Falcon Outdoor 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 new Eco-solvent inks do not require special ventilation or environmental equipment. They're UV-durable and are offered in six colors--cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan and light magenta.)


According to the company, 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 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 square meters per hour at 360 x 180 DPI, 3.6 square meters per hour at 720 x 720 DPI and 0.68 square meters per hour at 1,440 x 1,440 DPI.

The new Mutoh Falcon Outdoor offers 360, 720 and 1,440 DPI printing using piezoelectric inkjet print heads and is based on the company's Falcon Inkjet Series. The Falcon Outdoor 46 runs $14,995. The Falcon Outdoor 62 costs $19,995. For more information, visit http://www.mutoh.com.
