Unhappy white underbase alignment

I am printing design with white underbase on dark shirts and the underbase is not matching the color layer. It starts fine, but by the end of the design the white will be showing about a 1/16 of an inch. Almost as if the white layer is a little longer than the color layer. Someone said to reverse the platens but that didn't work. I thought I read somewhere about adjusting the feed in the rip settings. But I am not sure which way to go. Anyone else having this problem and if so how do I fix it. Thanks in advance.

What kind of Printer?
What is your RIP software?
What graphic software are you using?

I was still having the problem, but my machine went down and was down for about 3-4 months because I didn't have time to work on it. Have now replaced the mother board , printhead, dampers, capping station and cleaned out all the ink lines. Even replaced the computer. We are printing on white just fine and about to start the colored shirts today. See how everything goes. I do not think that the misalignment had anything to do with my printer going down, but we will see if all this new stuff fixes the problem. I must say though that Coldesi(SWF East) has been very helpful an their service tech talked me through alot. Can't say enough for all their help and my machine is 2.1/2 years old. Thanks guys!

PS I think I can take this machine apart in my sleep now.

Did you try adjusting the screws in the back and tighten the belt? Usually if it walks then you know you have an issue. Rip setting are a must and need to be correct.

To cancel out rip or Printer, why not print a 2 layer colour print, if the allignment is good then sounds like a rip issue.

Yeah I have the same issue on my kiosk 3, two whites print fine, black shirts print fine, but underbase on color shirts is 3 mm off verticaly, and color layer is horizontaly "squished" by 2 mm on left and right side:/

It starts to by annoing.

Any one form DTG Digital can adress this issue ? Don? Jerry?

Try printing unidirectional. If that fixes the issue then try to adjust the white layer choke (not sure if that is an option with your rip but with PrintPro you can do it). Also make sure the encoder strip is clean.

I printed with unidirectional but same problem

I see big difference if white and colors not same resolution and the difference be small if both same resolution.

I use AcroRip .. I hope fix this problem

It has nothing to do with anything. It's a media feed adjustment. It just needs to be calibrated. I don't know how to do it on the viper. I do know on the M2. It has nothing to do with the machine performance. It's a setting that needs to be adjusted.
I have to do it on my M2 machines every few months. It just seems to get off slightly over time.

The best advice I can give is to watch the videos. Coldesi has training videos on their website. Also you can go to you tube and type in DTG M2 and their is all kinds of videos on there dealing with all kinds of issues including this one.
It would take me to long to type it all on here. I also have to watch them. I have had an M2 for 4 going on 5 year's but I still have to watch the videos do to the fact I can't remember how to do it. I have done it many times though.

I just see to many people post on here wrong information. People end up doing way too many unnecessary things. Start with the basics first before you go tearing the machine apart.
