Default Epson L1300 Eco Solvent

Hi everyone!

I have a question regarding the Epson L1300 printer:
On the Internet you can find information about using this Epson printer with Eco Solvent Ink.
for example:

English language : Epson L1300 Eco Solvent Printer A3+

... unfortunately i don't understand that guy in the video but i guess he modified the printer with special tubes (and printhead?) that are suitable for eco solvent inks?

Below another video from a brazilian guy there is stated that you don't need any modification?:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0dkCP4Jntk&t=8s

Unfortunately i can't find any other specific information
Can you guys help me out with some more details?
Do I definitely need a modification and if so where can I find the right parts?

I know, this is an old post, but I bought one of the modified Epson L1300 and I am very happy with it.

The guy is very helpful in after sales and support.

I now have the printer since july and use it every day for printing on adhesive foil for stickers and for printing on htv/vinyl for shirts, hoodies etc.

It works very well. The guy changes the tubes, the damper, the ink tank, the capping station and the cleaning blade, inserts a heater (very professionell done).

Perfect to start in eco solvent printing.

That sounds fantastic. Would you mind sharing where we could purchase one of these printers?

Hi!

All the things I write now, are my personal experience, try if it works for you.

- print every day, and I mean 7 days a week, if you do not have something to print, do at least a head cleaning.

- powerflush once a week, yes it take a lot of ink, but it is necessary to keep the dampers clean and the head.

- clean the wiper blade and capping station every day with a cleaning swap ans alcohol or eco solvent cleaning solution (in my case, one bottle is included, when i buy my inks)

- get some dampers for replacement, the black ones I replaced already, be careful, the dampers you buy are for solvent inks AND the input is big enough, if not, you have to put something around the line and the input to fix it. The dampers he sells are perfect, if you buy online it is possible that the input hole is smaller and doesn't fit perfect to the lines.

- i do not use the original inks anymore, because too expensive and the import tax to my country is to high. I do use Eco Solvent Inks suitable for DX5 printheads and it works very well. The changeover can be done in two ways - mix the old a new ink in the tanks, maybe the colors go little bit off, or you get the old ink out of the tanks and do 2-3 powerflush to get the new ink into the lines.

- i bought 5 new ink tanks (yes it is possible), and I do fill them with solvent cleaning solution, take of the lines from the original tanks, plug it to the new ones with cleaning liquid and flush the lines, dampers and so the head once a month. After that, just plug in and do two flushes to get the ink back into the lines and dampers.

Big machine, small machine, the maintenance is the same. And If you do it you will have it for a long time. I do use mine daily for near one year now. I did a lot of adhesive pvc for stickers and more printable vinyl for textile heat transfer.

And yes - you will need a lot of codes for the WIC reset software :-)

If you have any further question, I am here!

Sorry for my english!

Your English is just fine and thank you for the information!
I am a total newbie to solvent printing so some of the terms you used are unfamiliar to me. The printer did not come with cleaning solution so I will order some today. In the meantime, I will use the printer every day.
I'm not sure what the wiper blade, capping station and dampers are, but I'll look on line and in the manual to see if I can find them.
At the moment, this seems like a lot of maintenance, but I'm sure it will be fine once I get into the routine.
One question if you don't mind, what do you do if you go away for a week or two?
Thanks!

Just look on youtube for wiper blade maintenance epson and you will find a lot of videos.

I just do not go away :-) If it is so you have to choices. Flushing the lines with solution, keep the solution in the lines, dampers (the white cartridges in the printhead) - and you will be finde. solvent ink has a lot of pigments and flushing prevents from drying the print head.

second way is to wet cap - also look on youtube - it is the same DIY DTG Printers and this DIY solvent printers. If you wet cap - higher the position of the tanks - if not - the pressure from the cleaning solution in the capping station, will pump the ink back to the tanks and it can happend, that yellow and blue mix up - I now what I am talking from haha - that was a mess!

Maybe I will do some videos on YT.

Thanks again for the good advice, I'll try to learn as much as I can about the printer.
When the guy from Modify Ink replied to my email asking about a maintenance routine, he simply said "Everyday use, no warranty outside Thailand."
So aside from your good advice, I think I'm on my own!

you will just need to change the tubes/hose that are for eco solvent tube and put out the tube of your ink waste tube out at the back of your printer. Thats all you need to do.
