Default Cheapest A3 DTG ready printer with white ink??

Hi, I am looking for the A3 printer for my DTG build but I don't know which one should I choose. I know that the Epson 1400 is common printer for cmyk+w dtg but it's not so popular in my homeland (Poland)... I can buy used one for about 200$ but it seems to be the price of a new Brother printer. On the other hand, Brother printers run on four cartridges only, just like HP or Canon, I guess.

So the question is, which printer would you guys recommend? I want it to be as cheap as possible, with at least 5 cartriges to use one with white ink, ciss and rip compatible..

Should i go for used Epson or what? Which printer should be just fine? Thank you so much. Forgive me my basic english.

You'll need at least 4 cartridges for white because of that you need to put a lot of it to get solid, bright white.

What I can see is that most popular epson printer for diy dtg build now is epson p600.

Nigdy nie umieszczaj "tani" i DTG w jednym zdaniu. Tą drogą w świecie DTG nigdy nie osiągniesz sukcesu.

Do konwersji nadaje się tylko Epson R3000/P600 oraz 3880/P800.

A2 jest łatwiejsza w konwersji, jednak wolniesza i dwa razy droższa od drukarek a3.

Jakbyś miał pytania wal śmiało. Ale przygotuj się ze nie wydasz mniej niż 15 tysi za względnie działającą konwersje.

Witam,

1) Potrzebujesz wersję z regulowaną wysokością drukarki/stołu co znacznie ogranicza wybór. Ufo printer w wersji przemysłowej wygląda nieźle w tej kwestii.
2) Użycie tuszy UV wiąże się z wymianą całego toru atramentu. Adapter na głowicy, wężyki, stacja serwisowa, captop, dampery, itd. To jest sporo więcej pracy niż w przypadku przeróbki na DTG. Dodatkowo wpakowanie LED UV też wymaga przeróbki np. miejsca zamocowania encodera i przeniesienia silnika PF.
