In this article, we will guide you through how to move the RICOH DTG printers in a short distance.
A short-distance move involves moving the printer by a vehicle under your supervision, the actual travel time should not take more than an hour or two.
If traveling through a high temperature or very low humidity area, or if there is a large altitude change, replace all of the ink with a Cleaning Solution. (See Section 5 of the User Manual).
If you are moving the printer in the original printer box replace all of the ink with Cleaning Solution. (See Section 6 of the User Manual). This is necessary because the cartridges must be removed for the printer to fit into the box.
Drain the Waste Ink Tank. (See Section 6 of the User Manual). Keep the ink cartridges in place. Do not leave the printer without the ink cartridges or Cleaning Solution in place. Otherwise, replace the ink with a Cleaning Solution. (See Section 5 of this chapter).
At the new destination, replace the ink if needed. (See Section 5 of the User Manual) and check the printer's performance. Perform a Print Head Nozzle Check and clean the Print Head\ as needed to restore good ink flow. (See User Manual, Chapter 7 Startup of a New Printer, Section 8. Performing a Nozzle Check) Leaving the printer for a long time without restoring good ink flow may cause difficulties with the ink flow later.
