Roland BN20 and Eco-Sol Max inks.

Post by FLG » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:09 pm

So everything is goign wrong with my printer at the moment and I am getting pretty fed up with whe whole thing! Perhaps some would say it serves me right! :)

The machine has been running with Ink-Teck 440ml cartridges. I am finding that the machine can't really draw all the ink from these cartridges as the first issue and possible they are the reason why I am having trouble getting the machine printing correctly now. Having had problems with ink washes etc I need to get back to basics.

So I am looking to purchase genuine inks again. Previous to the Ink-Teck inks I had Eco-Sol Max ESL3 cartridges. Should I now be looking at the latest Eco-Sol Max 3 ESL5 cartridges or should I stick wit the Original products. I have the latest firmware on the printer for information.

I presume a head wash would be a good move before installing the inks!

ESL3 (MAX) is great. This is the original ink type for the BN-20. Less maintenance needed compared to MAX3 which is a faster drying ink. MAX3 is good for bigger machines where maintenance is easier due to better access to parts.

You might want to perform head wash, yes.
