Bob - I've been printing digital negs on a 1430 using Pictorico Ultra 
and Piezography inks.  After about five minutes, I use a hairdryer on a 
low cool/warm setting and move it over the neg about 10 inches away for 
three minutes.  I've had no problems with the neg sticking to the carbon 
tissue I'm using.
