Default Have a DTG HMC-1- Clean needs head

so customer had was never trained, never used pretreat for whites, he let me have unit, I have unit clean as day it was made and i have software- if no activations are left can i use old mod 1 rip or the free rip software

my biggest question- is this unit worth putting a brand new head on and the conversion kit for bagged inks and making it a functional running unit

if i can make work with new head and bagged inks then i will have 5 dtg units running
2--541 Brothers and 1 -782 brother, a brand new neoflex and this HMC-1

is the HMC-1 worth investing 600-1000 bucks in to make it run and function again


been told the new print heads make the machine better than when they released

so should i bring her back to life and go live with her and where should I get bagged ink conversion and inks from moving forward and will they offer advice and support since i bought everything from them


OR AM I BETTER OFF?????????????

Finding someone on here who offers repair services and letting them fix it for me and send it back to me ready yo rock and roll

your advice and help aare appreciated.

Can you buy a machine as good as an HM-1 for 600-100 dollars? No. Are they good machines? Yes, if you maintain them properly. If you already have several other machines, you know what it's about. If you can fix it yourself, you have a winner. If not, you have a paperweight that needs a repair person. In addition to the head, you will replace the capping station. If it were me, I would get it to run with the standard ink bottles, then convert later. The rip pro software can have activations reset, I think it was 50 bucks last time my computer crashed.

I bought a second hm1 in a nearby city for 600 bucks. I also bought 2 Epson 2400s on eBay for 250 each. That gave me all the parts to repair the HM-1 except for ink chips.

Hope this helps you,

Default Re: Have a DTG HMC-1- Clean needs head

I have a dtg hmc-1

The top, lid is missing, it got messed up when moving so i tossed- just had 2 wires for a fan, machine is clean as day it was sold

i assume it needs new printhead- was flushed but i think that may be a part i need

I run brothers 541 and 782- had mod 1 and loved it

i want to get the HMC1 running - i want to print shirts with white ink- i do not like rip time with older epsons but when doing multiple shirts they are great as only needs to rip 1 time

1- WHAT SOFTWARE CAN I GET AND USE TO MAKE THE MACHINE PRINT PROPERLY?
2- IS THERE A DEMO VERSION SO I CAN BE SURE IT RUNS WELL BEFORE I PAY FOR EXPENSIVE SOFTWARE
3- I CAN USE BAG INKS FROM BELQUESSTE OR EQ ZONE AS THEY ARE DUPONT INKS RIGHT?
4- IF I DECIDE TO NOT USE AND BUY ANOTHER MOD 1 OR NEOFLEX- WHAT IS APPROXIMATE PRICE I CAN SELL THE HMC1 FOR

Thanks in advance for any help
