  1. First there's a difference in feel and capability with screen printing than DTF.  Both have a time and place. I think DTF can do a lot but it's not a 100% direct screen print replacement.

    I haven't seen refurbished P600s in forever for that price. It's tough to find them for any reasonable price.  Used ones are going for $1700. We bought up a bunch earlier in the year when we knew they would run out. But I have to get a return on tying up that much cash.

    Support is a huge time expense for us. When someone buys a printer from us I'm now "married" to them for the life of the product. It depends what you want to do. Many people buy a printer and figure it out on their own or with self research. Others want training and support as needed.

    We do not include the RIP. AcroRIP, ek and Kothari are options.. All have been discussed on the forum.

    If the ink is water-based and the powder is acting as a binder for the pigment, I'd just replace the CMYK DTG inks

    with standard pigmented water-based inks , which have much lower amount of resins and are much less likely to cause clogging problems even if the printer is not used for a longer time. In general, the pigments would be the same colour indexes, except maybe for the yellow, which for DTG is standardly P.Y.155. Cyan would in both cases be P.B.15:3, magenta P.R.122 and black is P.B.7. However, white would  still be the one for DTG as P.W.6 (TiO2 ), which has a very high density of  4.2 g/cm3, is more stable in this formulation. Cleaning fluid is based on deionized water and a selection of polyols, some amines and surfactants.    

    The inks still have to not bleed on the film and be able to stand up in the washing machine.
