Making a UV printer With a P800


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to make a UV printer with the P800? 


I'm not necessarily looking to modify it for flatbed printing, Rather leave it as stock as possible for paper printing. The main thing that I'm still confused about is the Ink system, and what needs done with it to handle the inks. 

Reptile's LED's look great, So I'll probably go that route. 


Anyway, I know stuff is posted everywhere and this has been asked, just looking for any updated information out there.

Yes the P800 can be used for uv.

The best way is to get chipless firmware installed.

Remove the standard dampers and fit uv dampers with uv ink lines going off to uv ink tanks.

Awesome, Chipless is always a must.

So the whole OEM damper system must go, do you have a recommendation for what to use in its place? Does the head manifold and capping station do okay with it?
