The head of a UV flatbed printer is very important. Once there is a problem with the head, the printer will not be able to carry out production work.

If the removed head is left for a long time, as the water contained in the residual ink in the head gradually evaporates, the dried ink will block the head. If the head is found to be clogged, the head should be cleaned immediately. If the head is still unusable after cleaning, you need to consider whether the head is broken. If it is broken, replace the head with a new one.

Do not use tools and fingers to touch the surface of the head of the UV printer to prevent damage to the head surface or block the head with oil or debris.

Do not blow air into the head, let alone get oil, sweat, or alcohol on the head, as this will cause changes in the composition and viscosity of the ink, causing the ink to condense and block. Do not use facial tissue, lens paper, cloth, etc. to wipe the head surface.

The correct way is to turn the flatbed printer to the OFFLINE state now, let the head cap, turn off the power, and finally pull out the plug.
