In order to save ink on the UV flatbed printer, there are several suggestions that must be kept in mind:
1. Ensure that the ink cartridges are intact and properly filled.
2. Use high-quality original ink for refilling.
3. Clean the original ink cartridge thoroughly before refilling it to avoid mixing different inks and chemical reactions. Avoid using the ink cartridge cleaning procedure that comes with the printer as it may not be sufficient. Instead, use a syringe to inject pure water into the cartridge, to avoid overflow. Hold the cartridge with the ink-filling hole facing up and gently shake it to dissolve any remaining ink in the water. Be careful not to shake too vigorously to prevent liquid overflow. Wipe any spills immediately to avoid damage to the circuit board.
4.Use the syringe to drain the mixed liquid from the ink cartridge and repeat the process until the extracted liquid appears very light in color. Then use the printer’s ink cartridge cleaning program to clean it.
By following these tips, you can optimize ink usage and reduce waste.
