Cleaning the head of the wine box UV printer

1. Software cleaning:

Automatic cleaning is performed through the maintenance function in the printer driver.

2. Ink pumping and cleaning:

When the ink cart is in the initial position, use a syringe with a hose to connect to the waste ink tube to forcefully draw about 5ml of ink. Do not rebound the inner tube of the syringe, which will cause the color-mixing phenomenon of each nozzle. During the ink drawing process, If the head protector is not tightly sealed, the ink cart can be moved gently by hand to ensure a good seal between the head and the head protector. Perform software cleaning after drawing ink.

3. Injection and pumping cleaning:

Remove the ink cart and unplug the ink bag. The hose connects the syringe with the cleaning fluid to the ink column of the head and pushes and draws back with proper pressure until the head vertically ejects a fine line.

4. Printing and cleaning:

Use “head cleaner” to replace ink with clogged heads, and use vector graphics software to print the color patch of that color until the head clogging is cleared and replaced with the original ink.
