Hi. I'm interested in building a Epson UV system for printing on hard surfaces like acrylic/plexiglass etc. Which printer model do you suggest is currently best to use?

My thinking is to prefer to go with maybe an older model of printer that has cheaper replacement printhead in case of blockage, so I'm shying away from newer types like P600.

Can anyone advise which route they would pick if coming to UV inks fresh today?

Many thanks.

Default Re: a3 epson convert to dtg uv led??

hello everyone
I just built my first DTG printer
it is epson 1400 with UV led
so now I have few questions
1. when printing on thick layer, (acrorip on 200% ink) with all working nozzles, 1440 by 1440 resolution the ink still look on lines, compared with roland printed samples, they look uniform
when checked with magnifier glass I did notice the difference - on my printer the ink is printed in solid horizontal lines, while roland print same thickness but with "error diffusion" dots, is there any available software that can do that?
2. or may be a software with automated multipass? printing a few layers one after another automatically?
3. or may be any tricks with the LED? if not cured immediately, but just a moment later, so it can spread evenly with next layer?
4. what can be used to dilute LED curable UV ink?
found one article on internet where they say "methanol" which Im waiting delivery now, but did a test with isopropyl alcohol - not too bad, now I can print at any resolution with no issues, but worried about later side effects? what else could be used to adjust the viscosity for best prints
thanks

Hello.
I have UV flatbed printer build on Epson L800. It works, but I want to change the printhead with Epson DX5 (F186000).
What I need to change apart of the printhead. (May be pump, main board, cbels ... what else).
Which printer parts will be fine to use ... may be from R1900?

P.S. Is it possible at all ... L800 is A4 - DX5 is A3 format.

Hi,

I have two Epson printers (R3000 and R3800) that I would like to convert them into UV printers. Has anyone successfully converted any? I read that is difficult because of the pressurized system that have. Is it true?

Hi. yes. you can use R2000/R1900 print head. it can use oil ink. R1800 can not. it use for Dye and pigment base ink.

I know this thread is very old ... but it's the best information package i have found so far for building up UV ink printer. Great!


After long time reading this thread i still have the following two questions:
1. I would like to use normal refill cartridges instread of external tank with pipes. Any recommendation about refill cartridges which could be used with UV ink on Epson 1500W? Any long time experiences? I plan to buy Aomya ink based on positive feedback here in the thread.



2. I want to build UV ink printer based on Epson 1500W. Is there any modification of the print head required to print with UV ink.


Thanks in advance for your answers.


Chris
