Speedtreater Tx what would be a good starting point for speed control? I understand that you want to over saturate and then start backing off until image quality suffers. But what would a good starting point be? I'm using Bella b3001 anvil 980 and understand Gildans are not so ideal for printing but I have some Gildans 65000 which are a fine jersey cotton.

It will vary with the garment brand that you are using. 50 to 60 is a good starting point on the speed dial on the SpeedTreater-TX.

If you have any questions at all always feel free to contact our Support Department. Our support techs are happy to help you.

21 C (70 F) is a good temperature but you can be a little colder or a little hotter without any issues.

50% room humidity is good for all direct to garment printers. The important part to remember is to try and keep that humidity level 24/7 in the room you have the printer in. You can be at a higher humidity level. You want to avoid being at a lower humidity level.

You should have a humidity gauge near the printer so you can be sure you're at a good humidity level. This one is nice as it records the highest and lowest humidity levels set all day:

The lower the number on the speed dial on the SpeedTreater the more pretreat is laid down. Sweats generally need a heavier amount of pretreatment then t-shirts.

F2000 has a very wide operating envelope. While I agree with the 40 ~ 60 humidity the upper limit as defined by Epson is no condensation on interior compnents, upper temp at 95 degrees .

Very much agree with you that Epson says that the F2000 printer has a very wide operating envelope, which is a very nice feature of the printer.

What Jim had asked for was the ideal humidity and temperature range which, and the people at Epson have concurred with this, were the figures posted.

here's a tip the f2000 does not come with a usb cord. You figure purchasing a $19K machine they would give you a USB cord. So make sure you have one on hand.

As far as the humidity monitor I was able to find this one by Acurite - Harry from equipment zone gave me the lead. But this specific model I found has a magnetic backing! And it attaches nicely on the Speedtreater TX which is made out of steel. My Speedtreater sits right beside the F2000. If you don't have a Speedtreater you can easily attach it to the lower part of the platen base which is steel. You can also use velcro or double sided tape if you can't find a magnetic one.


Here is the link. On their website it says $12.99 I got it for $9.99 at Home Hardware.

Acurite Digital Humidity & Temperature Monitor 00325



Here is a photo of placement with magnetic backing

FYI the humidity displayed is low, need to get a cool mist humidifier to bring it up closer to the 50 as suggested by Harry at Equipment Zone.

Funny
Best tips. If anyone from Eposn read this they will suggest to add on. I will remember this to AAEpsonFamily. Thank you.
Remember! Shorter the better. Long one may lose informations. 4 feet max.
Cheers! USB cords are on me always.
