Your encoder strip is one of the most critical components of your RICOH Ri 1000 direct-to-garment printer. Go longer between cleanings and enjoy easier maintenance. Your metal encoder strip only needs to be cleaned once a month and is easier to clean because it does not need to be removed.IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ BEFORE INSTALLATION.
CAUTION: Turn off and unplug printer before installing the encoder strip or performing a mechanical repair.

Note: As shown in the video below, your plastic encoder strip has a black triangle mark to use for reference when positioning the encoder strip for installation. IMPORTANT: The new metal encoder strip does not have a triangle mark, but instead has a notch cut-out to use for reference when positioning.
Remove blue protective strip before installing.
