Hi,
just received 8 blue wipers from fleabay but couldnt fit them . Seem too thick, will not enter properly and hit the metal in front of the wiper cleaner.

So are they color coded or sth? I don't know why i bought the blue one, just liked the color.
Old wipers are so smashed... I have to figure which wiper to buy. Any ideas?

Almost every after market Roland wiper I have tried is too stiff and gets stuck on the wiper scraper. The blue rubber is usually the stiffer type as well.

Just realized this was an old thread, but the info is still good. Check with Solventinkjet.com. They have a soft wiper that works very well with the Roland series printers that use that wiper mechanism. Just specify to them you want the soft wipers.

While i was waiting for the new original wipers to come from China, i did something very interesting. Cut a 2$ mini silicone glove for ovens and barbecue, obtained from Asian shop. 1,4mm thick. Used them till last week, so 2 months more or less. perfect result. Now i have fit the original wipers, but just an idea... On the photo you can appreciate the old ugly wiper and the cut to size by me and exacto knife new ones. I cleaned them using my 50-50 acetone home made solution, so no problem at all.
