How to clean the printer nozzle

When using the cij printer to print products on a daily basis, regular maintenance is also required for the inkjet printer itself. Today, I will introduce to you how to properly clean the nozzle of the cij printer. Correct operation and maintenance can more effectively protect the inkjet printer, reduce the failure rate, and ensure the stable operation of the factory line.

First of all, let's reduce the price and look at the correct operation process of cleaning the nozzles of the common Ax series cij printers. We need to prepare the tools: T6 Torx screwdriver and cleaning agent. It should be noted here that the cleaning agent used to clean the nozzle of the printer is a chemical. Be careful to splash on your eyes or skin, and you need to take protective measures. The printer must be turned off for cleaning before starting this step. During this step, if the printer is running, the cleaning agent will enter the recovery line and may cause the ink to drop in viscosity.

To turn off the printer:

1. Turn off the printer, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds, and wait for the printer to turn off.

2. Disconnect the power plug from the rear of the printer.

3. Press down the two nozzle cover fixing clips next to the nozzle (for i-Pulse single nozzle), or loosen the fixing screws (for i-Pulse dual nozzle). Remove the sprinkler cover.

4. For the i-Pulse single nozzle, gently press on both sides of the inner cap to release the retaining clips. Gently pull down and lift the inner cap from the lower side and remove it from the spray head.

5. Follow the notes in the figure below, and additionally prepare a container for collecting waste liquid.

Single nozzle steps:

①Loosen the screw and remove the charging slot. Clean the charging bay with a suitable cleaning solution and dry it with a lint-free paper towel.

②Remove ink residue on the deflection plate.

③ Remove the ink residue in the recovery tube area.

Double nozzle steps:

①Loosen the screw and remove the charging slot. Clean the charging slot with a suitable cleaning solution, and dry it with a non-woven fabric.

②Remove ink residue on the deflection plate.

③ Remove the ink residue in the recovery tube area.

6. Reinstall the nozzle cover.

The above is the operation of cleaning the nozzle of the Ax printer. Next, I will introduce the i-Pulse RS nozzle (high-speed machine, the nozzle of this printer is round). When using heavy pigment inks, the i-Pulse RS printhead needs to be cleaned regularly. Check the printheads before every shift and clean if necessary.

The steps to clean the i-Pulse RS printhead are as follows:

1. Turn off the printer, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds, and wait for the printer to turn off.

2. Disconnect the power plug from the rear of the printer.

3. Remove the nozzle cover.

4. Follow the notes in the figure below, and additionally prepare a container for collecting waste liquid.

①Clean the charging slot with a suitable cleaning solution and dry it with a non-woven fabric. After cleaning, use a magnifying glass to check to ensure that there is no residue on the two charging slots.

②Remove ink residue on the deflection plate.

③ Remove the ink residue in the recovery tube area.

5. Reinstall the nozzle cover.
