Hello Isaac,

The changover to the DX4 dampers is showing great improvement over the cartridges. We have not changed the factory dampers at the printhead as jgabby has shown on this thread, but just this week one machine had clogged two white channels at the printheads dampers. We changed all the white dampers out with new and back in action. I will most likely follow jgabby in installing the DX7 dampers soon just waiting on his feedback of any issues. I like the image armor ink over dupont and had expected some growing pains as it is the new game in town. That being said, if anyone has channels drop out due to the ink seperation you have to get the dampers and printhead apart immediately and cleaned or it gets expensive quick. Just waterfall the printhead and back flush the dampers till all ink is out and your good to go. I have attached pics showing our setup below.
