Default Epson R2880 Printing Film Positives

Does anybody use a Epson r2880 to print film positives? Im considering getting for for this purpose but am not sure how well it works. I see its a pigment based ink and I know a dye based ink would give me a little darker blacks. i will mostly be printing on 8.5 X 11 occasionally 11 X 17. I was also considering a Epson r 1900 (which I see is also a pigment based ink system). Could anyone please leave me their thoughts on these or if there is a better option for printing film for screen printing.

Thanks,

Brandon

Pigment inks are fine and have a higher uv density than the dye inks, though you might be able to see through it.
