Thank you guys for continue to order & purchase from us.
It’s a difficult year, many businesses are close & maybe never will be open again. It’s a struggling time for all of us, but we make it till now.
To give a little applaud to all of us, we decided to send some small gifts along with the parcel for all of our long term cooperated friends. If there is some room in the carton, no worries, we will fill it with washing bottles, blowers, coasters or other small gifts.
Let’s pray that together we will walk through all this fuss & have a blooming business. By the way, what kind of gifts do you guys like? Something related to the CIJ field or maybe something like the coaster? Give me a headsup if you are available. I’m going to stock more for Christmas(I know it’s three months ahead).
We have make it to the end of 2020 3rd quarter & the mid-Autumn Festival is only 10 days away from now. Congrats to all!
Despite we can’t travel or party as freely as we used to be, we still have a straight 8-day holiday starting from 1st Oct(Oct 1st to 8th). None of us will be in the office at that time, but since we don’t have much to do, which means, we will reply as fast as we used to be.
If you have an order plan, please schedule it ahead of time, delivery is always slow after holidays.
Let’s pray for a better 4th quarter of 2020 & stay safe guys. 🙂
I can feel the frustration of my client when he told me the compatible ENM5044 causes some problems when he maintained the MI 9040 CIJ printer. I know the compatible ENM5044 performs not as well as other compatible CIJ spare parts, for it is with delicate components in it. However, let’s not jump to the conclusion so fast, before we resending you a new compatible ENM5044 for replacement, shall we rule out the other factors that may cause the printer warning first? Or else the MI printer will continue to show warnings after you install a well function ENM5044.
Take my client’s MI warning for example, we can see there is no data shown on viscosity, so we could check the below parts first:
Check viscosity valve
Check tubes related to viscometer
Once finish checking above sectors but the warning is still there, then let’s change a new ENM5044. All I want to say is, I know there are so many competitors in the market and I’m grateful that you choose us. If there is something wrong with the parts I send, please feel free to drop us the question, we will provide few solutions first to rule out the potential faulty sector, after everything is clear, let me resend the parts & let’s solve it together.
There are clients who insist on original Markem Imaje parts, especially the ENM5044 electrovalve. Despite the compatible ENM5044 is good, in the end, it’s not as good as the original. Original ENM5044 works longer & smoother.
If you prefer original MI parts, we have them too. However, we don’t have much say in pricing, as we got to purchase them from local agent & price is on the way up all the time. Markem Imaje usually raises its spare parts’ price at the end of year, so better finish the deal in time.
If the original new spare parts are beyond budget, maybe the refurbished one are your next best choice. The refurbished parts are original parts taken from old printers, most of them are in good condition, we price them based on their condition & how many of them we have in stock. The refurbished parts’ price various from time to time too, if you know you are going to order one, and the quote is within your budget, just go get it. The hope that price will decrease as time goes by doesn’t always work on refurbished CIJ printer parts, its price may be lower, or higher, or the part simply sold out.
Contact us if you want to know more about Markem Imaje parts.
If you maintenance both Domino GP & A series pumps, and purchase pump repair service kit of both models, how to tell these two pump service kits apart? The easiest way is by identifying the two small balls. Take the 16 pieces set of A series pump repair kit for example, there are two small balls in the kit, while in a GP pump service kit, there will be no such balls, because GP pump doesn’t need them.
Moreover, GP pump service kit usually contains ten small gadgets, this is the most common set and we recommend let’s keep it this way, no less or more, the 10 pieces GP pump gear kit will meet with your requirements. However, for the A series pumps, the full kit is of 16 pieces gadgets, but you could custom the numbers in one set by your demand. You could choose part of the gadgets from the 16 pieces, the most common A series pump repair kit gear is of 7 pieces, 10 pieces, 13 pieces and 16 pieces.
If you have any other questions, about the Domino pump head repair gear kit, such as how to use them etc, please feel free to contact us.
One day a client sent a picture of this part & asked me to quote asap, cause summer holiday is coming, he really needed this part badly.
However, when I checked my price list for FA73530, whose name is Barb Double Ended. I can’t find this part neither by part number nor by name, and the picture in the graph is too blurr for technician to identify it.
So I asked client for a clearer picture of the FA73530 he is looking for(the one in left). Then it really started to shed some light on the spare part hunting. With the information of it’s using in print head, to connect φ2.2mm tubes, also with the help of a senior Linx technician, we finally found both the comptible & original refurbished FA73530 Barb Double Ended.
As you can see, the compatible FA73530 looks exactly the same as the picture client sent me, but it’s made of plastic, price is much much cheaper. The refurbished original one, which is made of stainless steel, quality is better & of course price is higher. If we look closer, the appearance of our FA73530 is not the same as the one client sent me. Technician explained that this is because the parts are made in different countries & sometimes parts of different batches look different too.
After clearing all the questions & time keeps running out, we send the original refurbished Barb Double Ended as well as some cheaper compatible FA73530 to client for back up as soon as possible.
We are thankful to have a group of senior & devoted CIJ printer technicians to help us testing procuts, coping with service issues & finding rare parts that never seen before.
If you are looking for robust compatible pumps for your continuous inkjet printer, such as Domino, Markem Imaje, Linx & Videojet, here are what we can provide.
Above are the comptible pump heads for Domino GP and A series.
For the GP pump head, there is nothing tricky in there, just tell your supplier you are looking for a pump comptible to Domino GP series, he/she will do the work automatically.
However, the pump heads for Domino A series desert a little more attention if you want to order fast & accurately. There are basically two types of Domino A series pump head, one with long motor & the other with short motor. Besides, if you are doing repair job for a white pigment Domino, we got a stronger version of pump for that, don’t be shy and ask for it. If you install a pump for black ink in a white pigment printer, the pump will work for a while but soon breaks down. You could clean the pump head and apply in a printer with black ink if the pump isn’t too worn out.
Also we have one version of pump for standard MI black ink CIJ printer, and another stronger version for white pigment, which is with the black coating. For more info about how to tell the pressure pump from vacuum pump apart, please kindly refer to our previous post Lesson 101 of Telling CIJ Pumps Apart.
Apart from 7900, we also have 4900, 5900 pump with and without motor.
Here are the compatible Videojet pump heads.
If you find that you just need to change the gears inside the pump, please let us know which gears you need, we can sell these parts seperately. Linx, Markem Imaje, Domino pump gear repair kit available. The gear kits for Domino GP & A series look quite similar, please refer to How to Tell GP & A Series Gear Kit Apart for more info.
Apart from providing standard black ink to Linx CIJ printers, we actually have compatible white pigment too. We did sold some of the white pigment to clients before, but the result is not so satisfied. There were feedback that the white pigment ink is not so adhesive on the surface of wire, which causes problem to our customers.
After getting these feedbacks, we didn’t just sit there & did nothing, instead, we see the market potential for white pigment so we urged the technician of liquids to modify the ingredients, to make the white pigment more adhesive, more user-friendly to wire.
Technican keeps modifying the ingredients of Linx white pigment & we keep testing different version of it on our domestic clients. After a long but resultful experiment trial, we are finally able to say, that we have a compatible Linx white pigment targeted on wires, which performance is very close to the original one. Of course price is higher than the not-improved white pigment.
We are happy that after detail explanation, our first carton of special white pigment targeted on wire was delivered. It really make us feel all the hard working is appreciated in the end.
Here are the most commonly asked questions regarding the white pigment
How could I store it–just put them under room temperature, do not need to put them in refrigerator.
How could I use it–please shake it for like 30 seconds until the oily, watery & white segment mix up with each other.
Expire date–the white pigment can last for 12 months, but works best in the first 6 months.
If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us for more info.
Right now we have some 7900 in stock, if you are going to replace your printer or change a printhead, or upgrade a mother board, please feel free to contact us.
All refurbished printer & spare parts will be tested & clean thoroughly before delivery. We always pack the parts with great care, however, there were times that the printer/part got damaged during transportation & it’s always difficult to make an insurance claim for second hand items. However, if the courier company shows mercy, the pictures & video play will definetly help to get our money back.
Price of refurbished printer & parts various from time to time, it highly depends on the market’s supply & demand. If you are going to ask us for a whole list of refurbished Linx printer, Imaje printer, Domino printer etc, I’m afraid that’s not a smart move, for one thing, price is affected by how many pieces of the printers are available in the market, for another, used printers with different condition, such as how many hours have they been running, the condition of the pumps and filters, also distribute to the difference in cost.
If you are looking for a refurbished part, you could tell your supplier to keep an eye on it. If you need it urgently, then better pay without hesitation; if you can afford to wait for a while, then you could pay later and see if market supply surpluses demand. But please please don’t ask us why the price is different than the last time you quoted to me, because, it’s the market & the refurbished printer/part itself that play an important role in the price setting, not us. Hope you could understand.
Please feel free to contact us if you are looking for refurbished/compatible continous inkjet printer parts.
7900 is a rather new model, if you do not know the part number, no worries. Please send us the picture of the spare part you are looking for. We will find out what you are looking for & quote to you.
