Holidays are a good time for people to slow down their life pace and enjoy wonderful life moments. For those who have a dye sublimation printer, the printer will also have a “holiday”. After the long holiday, as the printer will haven’t run for a long time, we need to take care of the time when we first turn on a textile sublimation printer to avoid unnecessary losses. So what should we pay attention to when the dye sublimation printer is turned on for the first time?
These are the tips to help you scientifically turn on a long-time unused printer:
1. Before you turn on the digital sublimation printer, first make sure that the working environment reaches the suggested temperature and humidity, the specific temperature is 15 °C-30 °C, and the humidity is 35% -65%. Please check the digital sublimation printer carefully to ensure that all parts are installed in place. Printing test strips will help a lot to check whether the print head is normal after turning on the machine.
2. The biggest problems of not using a heat transfer printer for a long time are the clogging of the heads, because it will cause many "complications", such as oblique spray, flying ink, etc., it will shorten the lifespan of the Epson 3200(or also called 4720) head, more seriously, the heads may be totally damaged. So warming up the printer and clean the head by our Fedar sublimation printer’s auto capping cleaning function are always a good choice(usually, a small amount of ink will be consumed to clean the head).
3. If the digital printing machine is not used for a long time, it is recommended to empty the ink in the ink cartridge when you are going to run it again to avoid unnecessary loss caused by ink deterioration that will clog the head nozzles and appear unstable colors output.
