Default AnaJet DTG Printer - has anyone seen or used this printer?

Wondering if anyone has seen or is using one of these printers, I have talk with them and got some of their sample shirts, might add they were the only one out of 5 DTG companies I requested info and samples from that sent anything.

Sample washed out great, on the white and black garments, I even washed right side out with bleach (not much) and didn't hurt the print. I have super dried them nothing to the print.

Wish I could compare samples, however I guess the others don't care???? I was invited to view a T-Jet however a conflict cause me not to be able to go (three hr drive)

Just wondering if anyone has seen or used one.

Thanks

I saw this machine at the Long Beach ISS Show. I believe the manufacturer or master distributor for the machine is out of CA. If I remember correctly, it is based of an R1800 Epson printer and uses ink in the cartridges (not in refillable bottles). I think the cartridge ink is something that will help minimize the amount of problems since you don't have the opportunity to introduce ink containments into the lines or the head.

The one thing I did not really care for is that the entire printer section is enclosed except where the shirt goes in. If you talk to people that own other dtg printers, they will tell you that you can build up lint and dust inside the machine that can get on the encoder strip or wheel / disk. Alot of the machines out there have a front and back holes that help prevent this build up. The Brother machines is also like this, but for some reason it is not as big of a deal for that machine and I am not sure why. It might be that it is a machine that was built from scratch and not from an Epson printer. Just something to consider.

If you would like to communicate with someone that has one of these machines, send me a PM and I will tell you have to get in contact with them. Best wishes with your research.

Mark, Bob
Ive have one of these for a month and a half. The top is closed, but opens like a car hood (and stays up)so you can get to all the inards to do maintenance or just marvel at the way these things work. Having the top closed off also aids (in my experience), in keeping the insides shut off from changes in humidity and dust and lint that will be prevelant in any shop. It uses while ink natively and you can run 4 channels for CMYK and 4 for white, or all 8 channels for CMYK (2 Channels each) for even quicker printing. You can adjust dot size and amount of inline passes independantly. You can even print white the same time as CMYK (same pass) on lighter shirts with a highlight white. I'm very happy with my purchase and my customers are too.

I donīt want to buy something, that doesnīt work. I would count myself lucky, if I get some answers.

Best regards,

Mark, I'm printing on an Anajet and am happy with the results. On Dark garments, I'm getting the same results on One pass that I've seen others get with 2 passes, mostly because we've got 4 channels printing white along with 4 printing CMYK. Also with the RIP, you have control of the "in Line" passes and the Dot size so you can get an amaising amount of white down. Now for the Bad (and this goes for all printers where you preatreat) It does take some experimentation to get this down and it's a time killer production wise You've got to charge more for this service. White ink takes a little more set up time to make sure all channels are fireing (head pattern test). If the printer has been sitting overnight you may have some ink jet clogging (mostly on white channels) but what I do is gang up my white ink printing jobs, because one everything is flowing, it will keep flowing. I'm more than happy with the washability so far (much better than I expected). A recent Rip update improved the color profiles on a few colors I didn't think translated well from RGB. Mark, what I'm saying is as far a Direct to garment printers go, you can't go wrong with this one. You're on the opposite end of the globe from where they're made, so just be sure that the distributor can and will take care of you when tou make your commitment. That was my top concern when I make my choice. If you have any other questions that you want to ask feel free.

Ian

what's the problem more specifically? staining? mixing? washfastness? more specifics will help others to aid you with problem solving.

I have an anajet too, and have been getting great results on lights and darks. I use a sprayer for pretreating too.

Are you using pretreatment? If so, describe your pretreatment process.

Maybe trying a less water mixture? also maybe trying to heat press after spraying to cure treatment. I use 325 degrees for 15 seconds for my pretreatment pressing. I have not heard of others hanging to dry pretreated shirt. Is anyone else doing this? I am curious now hehe.

I know of some people that don't necessarily press the shirt, but hover the heating element over the pretreatment to dry it. This is really easy if you have a swing away as you just don't lock the press down. The thought process is minimizing the pressure on the shirt and try to keep the pretreatment on the top of the shirt fibers. All of the samples that are done by Anajet are actually hang dried. Need to have the space to do it though. They also press the shirt for just a couple of seconds prior to putting it on the machine to flatten the shirt fibers. But don't do it to cure the pretreatment.
