Yes, it's one of the newest standard features. The AHD is new, but the Mod has always been able to print on an angle.

Is there any plans to make the platen larger to get more than 12.5" wide print?

Hi Karen, a wider platform has been reviewed and should be in engineering sometime next year, (most likely sometime in the second half),

Not having the wider platform was a big reason we didnt purchase the Mod 1.

Yeah, we knew it was restrictive but the goal was to really get the Mod1 the best that we could, then expand on that. So the wider format is one of the next steps in the series.

I thought the Mod 1 was the best Epson based printer out there,but we needed the wider platform.

We do have larger modules that are in the design phase for the Mod Series, but nothing is set in stone as of yet.

The Mod2 has only gotten to prototype stage. Below is a video that shows it printing a shirt with white ink in a little more than a minute. When we took a step back to see the viability of the platform, it just made more sense to have two Mod1s printing instead of a two module unit.

Mod2 Prototype

Our next tradeshow will be at SGIA in Las Vegas October 18-20th.

We will update our Trade Show Schedule to reflect the shows we will be going to in 2013 soon.

Damian,

The costs for the inks are similar to most companies, as the majority of us use DuPont Artistri. Here is a link to our website that shows the different sizes we carry and the costs associated with each size.

BelQuette PrintsRite Bagged Ink Costs

The time to print shirts can also be found on our website. For white/light garments, you are looking at 60-80 per hour. For dark/white ink garments, you are looking a 20-25 per hour. These numbers will be lower in the beginning with the learning curve but as you get better and more informed, these numbers are very realistic as compared to other machines.

Our machine was, and continues to be, designed from the ground up with ease of maintenance in mind. We have years of trial and error and a great team of engineers/support staff that have made the Mod-1 one, if not the best machines on the market. While the majority of manufacturers use an Epson-based system, we have researched and developed ways to overcome the negatives of these systems. The Epson-based systems are great but they do have downsides, especially when used in the way they are with DTG inks. While most companies will just throw the inks into the printer and claim all is well, we have strove to identify every weak area and developed technologies to overcome these weaknesses, providing you with the best end-user experience possible.

Hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to give us a ring @ the office.

Thanks,
Chris

After the frist run I get a blinking red light and can't send a second production run. I have cleared the jobs from the printer and still no joy. The Mod 1 worked fine on the front of the shirts.
