This summer has come, and how the UV flatbed printer can be used normally in summer does not affect the daily printing and processing. Then you need to master the special maintenance skills in summer, with fewer equipment failures, so you can save more money and reduce additional maintenance costs.

Five ways to maintain UV flatbed printers in summer:

Method one, is temperature control.

The UV flatbed printer should be placed in a cool, backlit corner, and avoid high temperatures and direct sunlight. The suitable indoor temperature is 19℃~32℃, and the humidity is 25%~70%.

Method two, power off and moisturize.

When the UV flatbed printer is not working for a long time, you can choose to moisturize when the power is off, and don’t leave the machine in the standby state, so the temperature will rise.

Method 3: After turning on the UV flatbed printer, be sure to print a test strip first.

After turning on the UV flatbed printer every day, you must first hit a test strip to check whether the nozzle is blocked. The temperature is too high in summer and the ink is easy to dry.

Method four, cleaning the inside and outside of the equipment is hygienic.

On a weekly basis, cleaning the inside and outside of the equipment is hygienic, especially in key positions such as the head and guide rails. It is particularly important to keep it clean.

Method 5: The position of the flat line needs to be checked every day when the machine is turned on. Keep the surface clean and whether the connection is tight and not loose.

The position of the flat wire must be checked every day when the machine is turned on, and timely confirm whether the surface is clean and whether the connection is tight and not loose.
