  4. Thanks...I'll have a go and feedback the results of this potentially destructive test to the group
  5. uv ink can destroy a print head and associated parts. If it's a cheap printer then its worth trying but I doubt the head in that model is any use.
  6. You would need to find out the spec of the unit for if it needs an no or nc sensor and what voltage it operates with. I would expect it to be using dc.
  7. Thank you ReptilesInk, Why would you think this is the case? the viscosity is different? the UV ink has solvents that could react with the head materias? Cheers
  8. Hi Andy! What proximity sensor should I use? - AC-NC Proximity Sensor 2-wire - DC-NC Proximity Sensor 2-wire Do I need to use relay to connect the sensor to the system's signal wire (black & red)? Thank you!
  9. Last week
  10. It's most likely the signal plug. Wire it to a limit switch or a proximity switch that the head is going to trigger.
  11. Hi, How would I wire this system to work with proximity sensor? As a noob at this I've searched around for a while but I seem no clue about this. Thanks in advanced!
  12. I very much doubt the head would work with uv ink or not for long if it does. You would also need to find uv proof cartridges for it or convert it to use dampers.
  13. Hi.. is it possible to use uv curable ink on a cheap Epson XP 310? I only need an A4 size for my application and I'm not looking for a fast setup. I can manage to do the flat bed conversion, but i'm unsure about the uv ink compatibility with this type of piezoeletric head.
  14. This may not be the right place to ask, but I know you folks know your stuff We have a few Epson 1430s we use for sublimation. One of the used ones we just got has the paper feed gripper pretty well worn out and slippery enough that it has trouble grabbing the paper. I've cleaned it quite a few times, and have some rubber rejuvinator coming to try to help it along. I also just bought some replacement roller tires: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254161020343 I haven't found anything anywhere that shows how to get the paper feed roller out of the rest of the ASF assembly, so I can rep

    hi Andy.... is the full version of openDTG arduino code work with epson 1390?
  17. I'm not sure, If you printed on a release paper I don't see why not. You put the powder on while the ink is wet, so the powder only sticks to the design, shake the rest off and " dry" the ink so the polymer sticks to the ink. After that, when you heat press it again, your melting the polymer and it mends with the fabric- creating a transfer. However, anytime this polymer gets heated, like in a dryer, it is possible for it to heat up to its melting point again and peel off, Unlike inks printed directly onto the fabric, which need its "carrier" or " plasticizer" to liquify it. The polymer
  18. Didn't really think of that, Usually though I always go for at least 50 percent cotton on anything I print on, DTG or not so while that is a good benefit, It wouldn't really help much in my business.
  19. so you can do transfers with regular dtg ink? I screen print but never dabbled with transfers. what is the powder they use and the specific transfer paper?
  20. yepp, and what i know a benefit from this new method is. u can use in many fabrics.
  21. It seems cool, I started out and still screen-print. I used to do transfers with the same powder, if it's the same polymer anyway. From the experience I have with it and customer feedback, it just doesn't compare to direct contact in terms of adhesion. ( plastisol transfers). Wash to wash, water based faded with the shirt fabric, usually creating a faded look as the shirt also fades(I love this). Plastisol ( directly printed) pretty much never deteriorates or changes but suffers a heavy hand and requires serious chemicals to clean. the transfers would all suffer peeling at some point, us
  22. the methods is DTF, digital transfer film. u can use dtg ink too.
  23. nope, they just call it plastisol ink. but its not. i've contacted a supplier (chinese ink) in taiwan. they told me that this ink is nearly same as normal dtg ink, its pigment ink too
  24. looks like they're already experimenting with plastisol based inks in Indonesia..I wonder if this will be a thing and eventually come to US shores. The heat transfer method seems like it will be very durable washability-wise. It looks like traditional plastisol screen-print. very tedious process though. Also, curious to see if this ink is easier on the printheads since plastisol doesn't air dry.
  25. 60 degree can work. A wide beam pattern is ideal due to how close they are to the substrate to give a good coverage but if printing in high resolution and single direction printing there shouldn't be a problem as long as they emmit the correct light spectrum.
