Epson 1400 friction mode

Fri Aug 05, 2016 3:32 pm

Hello Guys ,
first thanks to Andy for this Forum :)

This my firsts project diy dtg an epson 1400 in friction mode with alumium; i  would share it since i posted video, but never had time to do it.




So i ll try to put some infos days after days

First this what i used :

Aluminium L bacrket 30 mm (For the platen)
Aluminium square 100*100 mm  Lenght 1000 mm (Support the printer)
aCuride rails 600mm (mooving platen)
Shaft Guide Support Brackets (support of bearing)
Bearing [color=#000000][size=120]8 X 16 X 5Mm  (for the original paper shaft)[/size][/color]
Labjack for height adjustement

[color=#000000][size=120]Instead of the paper sensor i used the APG SENSOR but wiring and connection should be changed[/size][/color]

i ll be back for more information

Very nice build. I'm extremely impressed with the white ink coverage you're getting out of a 1400.

Resolution 2880/1440 dpi

I've seen AcroRIP all over alibaba and aliexpress.com. 

Do you know who actually makes it? It would be nice to buy from the source and know you're getting a clean copy.
