I've seen the machines print, the MOD is faster than the ANAJet as I feel that Mark has done a better job of last raster return than the Anajet does. Also, being able to load a shirt onta a board ahead of time cuts the "in between" time as well. That being said, all Epson 2400, 1800, 1900 based machines are going to perform at similar print speeds, the return speeds will vary, but not by more than maybe 10-15 seconds or so per machine. Second problem is, if you are printing as "short fat" logo in a bright color on dark, you may actually need to slow down your print time to allow the white to dry a bit before printing color over it.
Hi,what is your take on printing all your white underbase on (dark shirts) first, say run about 6-10 shirts then rerun them for the color over?
using a removable platen system?
I think it is important to understand that any Epson-based dtg printer can use this same exact ink, which is a completely different ink than used to print on cotton, and print on the same exact substrates. This is not something unique to the way the Anajet printer is built.Anajet now prints onto Polyester too and the results are great.
I believe Peter (Neo-Flex) has been touting a add-on heater for his printer, I believe it was a infrared heater to help cure the ink, here's the link.So the only way to over come this seems to be multiple white underbase prints and rerun for color? or incorporate some kind of dryer on the printer itself as its printing the white ink, however im not sure that it is feasable?
