Eastech Tina 2440 UV-cured inkjet printer

This is the first UV-curable inkjet printer to use Epson printheads that has come close to production. The first Eastech with Epson printheads has not often been exhibited. The Zund XY was shown at DRUPA 2004 but never again. It failed totally.

The Eastech Tina reminds me of the Dilli Jupiter and all the previous Mimaki printers: namely a smallish rectangular platform and a large carriage. However overall the Eastech is less bulky in size.

This model is no longer available new, but you might find it as a used printer. Regardless of what brand and model, before buying any used printer, we recommend that you realize spare parts may be an issue for printers no longer manufactured. Plus, the main reason why a model is retired is because engineers have developed new (and hopefully better) printheads, ink delivery systems, substrate transport systems, etc. So what may have been an acceptable printer when it was fresh and new, may be not as viable today.

Plus undersand that there are so many old models that it is not realistic for us to update each and every web page going back so many years. So if you need personal assistance, to decide which used printer is worth the risk, you can hire Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth for a personalized consultancy.
