Re: Use Ricoh SG 3110 DN as a DTG

But it is proof that Ricohs Gelsprinter based printers can be used as DTG printers.

From what i gather they may be releasing an A3 printer too... yes its only CMYK but non the less can suit some people.
Either way it can be good investment. 
*i might have a machine to strip and look at soon*

For those of you who were wondering like i was..

Ricoh have solved this one already..
They will be offering an A4 based machines for DTG based on the 3110.
This was shown at PacPrint here in Australia last week.

Thought about this.. The ink type is different.. its a gel, it has different viscosity. Also they are only 4 colour printers. Sawgrass have an inkset they use for small fabric based prints "fabric maker" So if they have a solution for fabric then it is achievable to turn one into dtg. As stated abov...

Should be okay. Ive used different heads for some time. 4880 and r1800/r1900. It works one way but not the other. I think it was 1800 into 4880. Was a long time ago and I can't really remember. Your suppose to input the qr code into of the head into the adjustment program. It is meant to send the co...

My apologies for the crummy photos... My camera on my phone has seen better days. But just a few sample prints of the firebird ink on a 4880 based DTG. Plus they were taken at low resolution. I get some really good results from the Firebird. blood sweat and gears1.png blood sweat and gears2.png bloo...

Re: UV based on R1390

Yes, i Use to see this on R1900 and R1800 model DTG printers (DTG k3)
we use to call them run slow.

Not sure if it is a memory issues or not.
But a reboot solved most issues what lead me to believe it was a memory issue, rather than heat.

But both do help explain why.

I currently use firebird with my job. We love it we do not suffer blocked nozzles like we use to with dupont. White ink isnt dull at all... its not as strong as dupont i will admit but by far the best ink in regards to stretch and washability. I will try getting some photos of sample prints for you ...

With doing plenty of reading etc.. i came across an epson range of printers fitted with CIS system. Unfortunately they do not offer and 8 channel printer for now.. but they do have a 6 channel. Anyway, i thought it may be of some interest to some people who are only interested in a CMYk setup or 2 c...
