It’s important that we know how to well setup a uv printer after we received it. Because unless for Epson modified printer model (like Rainbow RB-3250 A3 UV Printer) which comes head and printer as a whole part-China good quality independent research and development uv flatbed printers all need customers to install print head and print head cables to setup.
Firstly, we need to install print head and cables following the videos supplier offer
The uv print head cables are used to connect between print head and head board which is for signal transfer. Up to Up, down to down insert is very easy.
Secondly, we should insert ink dampers to the head according to right color. If your printer has two heads and you want to print vanish, then you will use one head for white and vanish, the other head for color ink CMYK:
If your uv printer has only one head，CMYKWW insert as follow, but if print vanish with one head, then it will be CMYKWV; Personally we do not suggest one head with vanish printing, because when we print on dark materials, we need to print white layer as base, so under the DX8 head has 6 colors truth, CMYKWW is best to get quicker speed and thicker white. So for vanish printing, two heads is best choice for uv printer.
Those are discussed under circumstance that you want to print any color; if you want to print your logo with only single color like black, then you just fill all the head channels with black ink, then you got quickest speed.
Thirdly, after head and cables, ink dampers and ink pipes all well installed, now we need to install softwares and drivers according to instruction videos: Control software is Wellprint or Photoprint DX11 Plus and Rip software is Maintop 6.0 (Rainbow UV printer choice)
Fourthly, after printer control software and rip software installed (ICC file same in video), we should double check that every place the lines, connections no problem, then we fill ink to ink bottles, and then pump ink from bottles to heads.
Step 1: Load ink in two heads
Step 2: Cleaning
Step 3: Test
After uv print head test result good, then it is time for printing.
That’s all the necessary steps for setup a uv flatbed printer with Epson heads. All steps should strictly follow instructions of manuals and videos and technician instructions.
