Default Wheeled Cart

Hi, all-

Can a wheeled cart affect print quality on a DTG printer?

The cart I’m looking at weighs about 120 pounds and has locking casters.

The printer is P800 based and weighs 100 pounds.

Best,

Chris

Of course it will. Print a resolution target onto paper attached to the platen.
Resolution will diminish perpendicular to the motion of the platen.
This will be easily measurable in the 3.2 and higher resolution targets.
These statistical measures may have no clinical relevance when considering the very course nature of the fabric to be printed upon.
Any motion that creates hydraulics in a fluid will have unintended consequences. In my description we are essentially talking about measuring with a micrometer and cutting with an ax.

In your situation, I recommend retractable casters and/or a stand weighting at lest 2 times the weight of the instrument. Since you have the printer and you have the stand, let us know the result you experience.

What about the rotation of the earth and the Coriolis effect?

Anyway... Swivel castors are not a good idea for a printer, unless you also have leveling feet.
