Head is invalid

For a long time (more than 5 days), if the head is not pressed or wet, the residual UV ink in the head will solidify and dry, which will directly cause the internal blockage of the head. In this kind of damage, cleaning the head again is useless and needs to be replaced.

The ink system is blocked

If the ultraviolet ink in the ink tube, secondary ink cartridge, and large ink cartridge is not used for a long time, it will inevitably lead to precipitation and condensation. If it is reused, it needs to be replaced with a new one.
   So, what if you don’t use it for a long time? There are two common solutions.

A, remove the head

After the head is removed from the equipment, clean the UV ink in the head with a cleaning solution, then immerse the bottom of the head in the cleaning solution and wrap it with non-woven fabric, then wrap it with plastic wrap for more than 10 times and put it in the cabinet. Remember not to put it in the sun or in a humid place.

B, remove the ink tube

Take off the ink tube and discard it directly. Clean the secondary ink cartridge, draw out the UV ink stored in the large ink cartridge, and put it in the UV ink bottle again.
