The cleaning liquid used in the dye sublimation fabric printer is a kind of "detergent" formulated according to the characteristics of the ink. Its main function is to have strong scouring ability, dissolving ability, and make the ink flow more smoothly in the pipeline. Here are some situations and how to use the cleaning fluid correctly.
1. When new sublimation printing machines are installed, since each machine is filled with ink before it leaves the factory, there is also a protective liquid in the pipes and ink heads. The solubility of the ink in the protective liquid is not as strong as that of the cleaning liquid, and the protective liquid has some influence on the fluidity of the ink, and often the phenomenon of drawing (in the high-quality mode) and oblique spraying of the ink holes. Therefore, we require that when new machines are installed, the pipeline must be cleaned with a cleaning liquid to avoid the phenomenon of drawing and oblique spraying of ink holes.
2. Regularly use a cleaning solution to clean the wiper blade and ink pad every week. Pure water and alcohol have a low solubility in ink, and alcohol has a slight corrosive effect on the wiper blade, so we recommend that you do not use pure water and alcohol to clean it.
3. Regular use of cleaning fluid to clean the pipeline is recommended (3-6 months). If the ink is used for a long time, there will be attachments on the tube wall, which will affect the smoothness of the ink, and the solubility of the cleaning solution to the attachments is very strong, so the pipes must be cleaned regularly.
4. In some cases, due to the poor working environment and strong static electricity of the digital sublimation printer, a lot of cotton-like dust will adhere to the surface of the ink head. If it is not cleaned for a long time, it will cause oblique spraying and blockage of ink holes. Regularly drip the cleaning solution into the ink pad to make the photo machine nozzle better moisturizing.
