I just tried printing a glass tile and hardly anything printed on it. I printed the transfer on HTR5000 JetCol paper. I put the paper in the printer sticky side down. I attached it to the backside of the tile with heat tape. I put the tile in the press backside down. I put a protective sheet of paper on each side. I put the nomex felt on top and I pressed at 400 for 5 minutes. When I pulled it out, basically nothing had transferred. I followed every step of directions. What
went wrong? Oh, did I mention that I'm trying to get a job out today?
When I press a tile I first put the nomex, then the transfer (printed
side up) then the tile (backside up so the heat goes "through" the tile
and then i place a Teflon pad on top. Since the tile is on the nomex the transfer is nice put around the
edges. Hope this helps. Kind regards,
|There are so many places to chose from
, but I would rather go with a
recommendation for the group for a new CIS. I had one for my R320 and it doesn't work with my R340 because of that damn plastic piece going through the middle of the printer at the top. I researched for an hour or so and have to get
some sleep. I figured I would ask the group for suggestions and help on
choosing one. Any help would be appreciated.
We are manufacturers of cis systems, however because the R series printers can be so temperamental I would recommend the refillable cartridges instead. The piezo crystals are not as forceful in the R series print heads as with the C series Epson printers and so have a greater challenge pulling the ink from the bottles next the printer. The refillable cartridges have the advantage of allowing the ink to flow by gravity and so are a much more reliable way to feed the ink into the print head. Don't get me wrong we have customers using the cis with R series printers however we forewarn them that they are not without hiccups. Should you opt for the refill cartridges you can find them on this page.
