I’m a digital printer. I’m working in an advertising company. I’m going to tell you about my experience.
This is a digital printer. This machine is made by Epson Company. Srilanka has this machine in every digital printing point. There are some various kinds of model machines. Some of them are
RS – 640, SJ 745 ex, SJ740, SJ 640, RX 640 like that.
RS – 640 is the latest product of Epson Company. Srilanka has a dealer call Epsom Company. Its mother company is the Epson Company. They are introducing this Roland machines to Srilanka. In history the Roland machines are imported by only a one company call shanthi plastic. But now it’s imported by a several companies.
In the past of the digital all the machines used to print from a one brand ink. That ink calls Durafoce. Now they discovered that ink has some problems. Also it is not eco friendly.
When you printing with Durafoce ink it is very smelly. If you stay close to the printer you can get the ink taste from your mouth.
But now in srilanka people using a new ink. It’s call Eco premium. It’s a good quality ink. No problems found yet. Srilankan government advice to all ink importers to import ink that has Eco friendly. This Eco premium ink is full of eco friendly. It gives a small smell.
Anyway my advice to all digital printers.
When you printing long time please don’t stay with the print room full time. It can be an effect to your health. That inks mixed with the air and it goes to your body through your breath. When you do this for a long time you can effect by this inks. Also you can use a mask to cover your nose and mouth area. But please don’t use that clothes mask. It’s not working (I mean it’s not filtering the air). You can buy a special mask from equipment selling peoples.
