Metroman...3000 euro's is not much money in the DTG business. But there is a European DTG company called Resolute. They sell DTG's and ink. Most people on this forum think there ink is not all it's cracked up to be. But after extensive ink testing, I found it to be very good in wash test's. At least it is close to you. When you need support, warrantee's and parts. It's nice to be close. Here is a link if they leave it up. Equipment - Resolute DTG

Thank you very much, your a god send.

It is £3,000 which is about 3,800 euros. Not that 800 euros makes much difference tbh. lol

I will definitely check them out!!!!

Hi Thomas.

You stated there was so much choice in the £3,000 price bracket.

I just wondered what is that choice I've not seen many DTG printers for sale at £3,000.

Cheers

John

I never said that....I said that's not much for buying a DTG! Look again and get back to me.

Stich-Up...I see your the Uk NeoFlex people. Just so you know, I think for 90% of shops NoeFlex is really the best 4880 based DTG. But this guy was looking for low buck machines.

Hope you understand?

Just as a point of reference - we just sold our Anajet Sprint which was in very good working condition but had the original head (4 years old) plus many accessories for $6000. Perhaps you can find a used printer for your budget but be careful, you may get a lemon. We purchased an Epson 2000 in it's place. Still deciding if it was the best choice but for sure the daily maintenance is nothing and that is a plus.

Good luck in your search.

I may be able to plunge another 2k-3k into the mix. It would really depend on whether this pay rise comes through in january.

I would probably look to buy a 2nd hand machine at first. Would want all the regular checks done and see it in full working order before any money exchanges hands ofc.

Our Company Anderson Etching purchased a large format UV printer from China and soon began our problems. The printer was a duel head printer with "DX7" heads. We did not receive the Print Heads, software, cable to USB (not an issue). The biggest issue is the print heads and software. I contacted the seller to let him know what he didn't send these items but insisted we did and we were liars and for several thousand more he could send the items. I don't care to deal with someone who does that so refused to spend any money with a person I can not be guaranteed that I will get what I pay for. The question I have is I have this large scale printer sitting in my shop that I can not do anything with and is a giant paper weight... 1. Are the heads specific or can I purchase any heads? 2. Is RIP software specific or can I purchase a version made in the USA? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd say technically you are in the wrong thread and why you aren't getting much attention. I know of no company that actually alters the head itself, if it is in fact a DX7 head, no matter where you purchase it, it should work.

Like Jerid said, the DX7 head will work basically anywhere that you grab it.

Software for a Chinese UV printer is rarely specific to that machine. I focus more on DTG than UV, so I can't point you to any one place in particular that could get you software, but try calling up American conversion companies and see what they say.

A lot of information here for a newbie to digest. In the process of researching DTG equipment for our business. Anajet came highly recommended but seems too pricey for starting out. Will probably try to see if I can negotiate a 12 month lease for a reasonable price before I commit to buying equipment.
