    It was my first UV flatbed back in 2006...Total piece of crap. After six months of trying to get it to print I gave up and forced the seller to take it back. I ended up losing about $10k over the six month it was in my shop. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

    What types of problems?

    Keep in mind - I'm ONLY printing roll to roll?

    The seller has told me of some issues, as well as a PILE of fixed he made to the machine, plus its only $5k.

    You had better have a real passion for tinkering and all things mechanical to keep it running. I had a hard time keeping it dialed in and calibrated. Good luck

    We have installed 6 of these printers in my customers. All of them are working but they needed a lot of repairs. If you are to print only roll to roll, It is a good machine. The weakness is in the electronic boards, they are not very stable I recommend to put a voltage regulator. Be sure the print heads are in a good status.

    RASTER 720 UVZ TECHNICIAN / REPAIR NEEDED or some with experience with large format printer
    I have recently imported a RASTER 720 from the US, I have come into a couple issues,

    1. When I am printing sometimes a large blue droplet of ink will fall and ruin my print?
    2. Im not getting the color green consistently sometimes i will get green then other times i will get a fire yellow color.

    If anyone can please send advise, it would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Sounds like Cyan is dropping out (lack of reverse pressure) could be a problem with the ink reservoir. Make sure there is no leak in the vaccuum hoses you may need to cut a small piece off the ends and put back on the ink reservoir. Whatever you do don't spend too much on this printer.

    If anyone needs the printheads for the Raster, we carry new Spectra heads for this.
