Rebuilding Factum Arte's flatbed printer

After six years of continual work the flatbed printer was completely rebuilt by Dwight Perry in 2013. It was originally built around an Epson 9600 Pro. This printer is now totally obsolete and spare parts no longer exist. We looked for any existing printers that we could find in good condition which we could strip down for spares. While this was going on Dwight was building the new flatbed which would be larger (150 x 400cm), higher resolution and with a number of modifications that would significantly improve the quality of our prints onto gesso and other surfaces.

Factum Arte's new flatbed printer, designed and made by Dwight Perry, based on an Epson 11880 Pro.

The main 388 toothed pulley gear wheel was designed and precision-milled by Dwight Perry.
