Static electricity is a kind of charge that is at rest or a charge that does not flow. When the electric charge gathers together on some subjects’ surface, it will turn to be the static electricity. Fedar dye-sublimation printer is a kind of printing equipment that relies on the computer image output, in other speaking, digital sublimation printer belongs to the family of precision instruments and it will be easily influenced by static, just like Fedar Textile Sublimation Printers use Epson 3200 head (also called 4720 head), famous brand Leadshine servo and step motor and our specially designed mainboards, these core parts are easily influenced by strong static. In order to avoid the harm caused by static, we need to know how to get rid of the static in a scientifical way.
Now there are 3 efficient ways to prevent and eliminate static.
1, Use earth wire. Using earth wire is the simplest way to prevent static, and usually, there will be a piece of earth wire when a printer is packaged and sold to a customer. In the actual operation, the earth wire should be installed in strict instruction and follow the sign of the digital printing machine, the static electricity should be effectively led to the ground to avoid static flowing between the core parts of the printer.
2, Use anti-static paint or scavenger. For example, if Fedar’s 4 head high-speed sublimation printer FD6194E works for a long time in a dry and hot room, the probability of occurring static electricity is super high, and if the Epson 3200 heads are damaged, it will bring a lot of lost. So it will be a necessary thing to paint the workroom with anti-static paint or scavenger.
3, Control the temperature. A useful way to avoid static is to adjust the temperature and humidity at a proper level, like temperature between 20℃-35℃ and humidity between 35%-65%, in such an environment, the static is weak. Secondly, we need to use the original ink from the same printer’s factory to minimize the static’s impact. Fedar’s dye sublimation inks are tested for a long time in our factory and it works better with our 2 head Fedar Inkjet sublimation printer FD1900 and TC1932, 3 head printer FD5193E and 4 head printer FD6194E.
4 Use anti-static parts. Fedar’s inkjet sublimation printer is equipped with the United States imported fluoro rubber pressure roller to prevent static, and it helps the media feeding smoothly to keep the printing accuracy.
