Latex, Solvent, and Water Based Wide Format Printer and Copier Repair
Water based prints are currently the hot item in wide format printing and copiers. Leading manufacturers such as HP, Epson, and Canon continue to make advancements with this technology and provide customers with the best available products. When your latex, solvent, and water based wide format printer and copier repairs are on the line, you want technicians that are highly skilled, trained, and most of all, certified by your printer.
Water based prints have many remarkable virtues! They can create the most beautiful effects for prints and, most especially, the T-shirt market. Anyone who is looking for high speed yardage printing, you really can’t go wrong with a water based option. With items that need high ink penetration, such as towels, and T-shirts, your best option will be using latex inks.
However, to get the very best printing possible, you will need to take care of your machine. Latex, solvent, and water based wide format printer and copier repair can be quite expensive. Maintenance is the best and most inexpensive way of prolonging the life of your machine and getting the most out of every order. Unfortunately, there are times when your printer or copier will require repairs. The best you can hope for is that this won’t happen when you have an important deadline or a large order for a fussy client.
Everyone wants to the best for the environment, however, simply because water based and latex inks are advertised as “green”, this does not mean that they can be dumped down the drain. There are still other ingredients in ink that are not compatible to the environment. Your latex, solvent, and water based wide format printer and copier repair person can advise you on how to properly dispose of waste products from your water based or solvent printing.
Many people who initially change from their solvent printers to latex printers or copiers complain that the new prints appear to be grainy looking in quality. This is generally not a printer problem as latex and other water based inks have much better quality than solvent machines, but rather a software or calibration problem. Be sure to check with your supplier or repair person about the calibrations of your machine or update to the latest software for your computer.
Also, there are complaints about some products having an excess of bubbling after applying an acrylic. Again, this is not a printer problem but the gasses in the acrylics. There are various methods to remove the bubbles, such as using a blow dryer to drive out the gasses. Likewise, there have been some reports of problems printing with Adobe Acrobat 8.1 Pro. If updating the software and drivers do not solve your problem, others have reported that reverting to Acrobat 6 has stopped giving them error messages. Most error messages are a result of software and not an issue with your printer. Well taken care of latex, solvent, and water based wide format printer and copier repairs are few and far between.
