Dmax Dye™ Ink 4900 All Black Ink Cartridges

The ability to print quality films through the Epson T3270 happens because of two key Freehand manufactured technologies…Dmax Dye Ink and AccuRIP Ruby EP™ Software. You simply will not achieve the same success with any other products.
Freehand and you, together we got this!
Your Epson 4900 has likely been in use and is printing. Use this Ink system with any AccuRIP version software offering the All Black Ink™ Feature License. Make sure the feature is turned on in AccuRIP and configured to all the slots printing with black dye. Incorrect configuration will result in the use the single default photo black slot ONLY.
Step Two: INITIAL FILL
(a) remove any air hole tab on the tank or open plug.
(b) wearing supplied gloves fill the tank with no more than 200 ml of Dmax Black Dye Ink each tank.
(c) Add ink slow enough to avoid a spillover.
(d) Replace plug before installation
Follow this procedure for all cartridges.
Note: If cartridges reports a failure during normal use, removing the air hole plug and reinserting will often resolve the issue.
Insert each cartridge in the proper slot (using the same procedure used to insert Epson carts)
Install and setup AccuRIP™ Software by Freehand if not already done, making sure that the All Black Ink™ feature is ON and then configured to all the slots to be used. Refer to your AccuRIP documentation. Install, activate and launch (open) AccuRIP software. Run a nozzle check to make sure all slots will print cleanly. If necessary run a cleaning routine.
A clean Nozzle Pattern test print means you are ready to start printing films.
MAKE THE MOST of AccuRIP and Dmax…
Freehand’s exclusive Droplet Weight Density Test print feature in AccuRIP software quickly and easily prints all droplet weight settings onto one film allowing you to dial in your screen making system for maximum quality results:
Step One: Make sure film is loaded.
Step Two: From the Quick menu or the File menu in AccuRIP choose Droplet Weight Density Test Print. Read and follow the direction on the print out to quickly discover your best and trusted settings.
When is it time to refill?
At the first sign of a light print check the tanks to see if they need additional dye added. The printer ink light may go on indicating low ink. Refill if necessary.
Why should user have Freehand’s Amaze-Ink?
Amaze-Ink is an amazing head cleaner and maintenance fluid. It is NOT to be used in the refillable tanks as part of film printing. All Bubble Jet and Inkjet printers will eventually take on a clog. Having the proper and safe supplies on hand saves time and money. To maintain a clean printhead and to break up clogs that may occur, refer to the cleaning videos on the Freehand Graphics YouTube Channel:
Keep Ink Flowing…use Amaze-Ink monthly for maintenance.
