How to Avoid the Static Electricity on Digital Sublimation Printers?

Digital sublimation printer electrostatic interference phenomenon is common to encounter, Static electricity has a great influence on the sublimation printer.

Static electricity can be described as the number one killer of the nozzle, especially in the working environment which is too dry in winter. Sublimation printers will directly produce a lot of static electricity directly causes damage to electronic components such as nozzles and circuits. Or when using print media materials, especially when using plastic-based materials such as PP, adhesive, etc., a large amount of static electricity is also generated. It damages the nozzle or cause the accumulation of impurities then lead to the nozzle blockage damage.

The static electricity of the human body is actually caused by the fact that our body is too dry and rubbing against the clothes. We can do the following actions to prevent electrostatic interference:

1.Discharge the static electricity before using the digital sublimation printer: When you operate the sublimation printer, you can touch the metal material with your hands first, so that the static electricity can be transmitted.

2.Before using an sublimation printer, you can wash your hands with water This can be more thorough release of static electricity.

3.We adapt to wear electrostatic gloves in the winter. It can also prevent static electricity.

4.For newly purchased sublimation printers, we must first connect the ground wire. In the process of usingof sublimation printers, if there is a problem with the connection of the ground wire. Then if it causes static electricity to be released, it has a great influence on our actual use.

In this process, there are the following points:

A. When inserting the ink cartridge, pay attention to the display of the status of the ink cartridge on the panel. Before the ink cartridge is inserted, the display of the corresponding position should be a rectangular box with a slash in the middle; after the ink cartridge is inserted, the slash should disappear immediately if it is oblique. The bar still exists after the cartridge is inserted, and there is a high possibility that the machine has a problem.

B. After inserting all the ink cartridges, the slashes are no longer displayed. At this time, press the PAUSE key. If there is no change in the panel reaction, there may be a problem with the ink cartridge. It is recommended to replace the ink cartridge test.

2. How to ensure that the ink cartridge is installed in place?

1) First confirm the specific printer model. When the early 7400 ink cartridges were used on the 7450, there would be cases where it would be necessary to forcefully push it into the ink tank to install it.

2) If you confirm that the machine model is 7400, there may be cases where the ink cartridge cannot be inserted properly. There may be a problem with the printer.

3. How does the printer leak ink?

1) First turn off the printer and unplug the power plug

2) Then do the following checks:

A. check whether the waste ink tank is full, there is waste ink overflow caused by the phenomenon of ink leakage. If the waste ink tank overflows, clean the waste ink tank and the ink on the printer before inserting the waste ink tank back into use.

B. If some ink cartridge is found to have ink leakage, please remove the ink cartridge first and clean the machine and ink cartridge. Then replace the missing ink cartridge with the same color ink cartridge. Note that the ink cartridge must be inserted tightly. Observe that the position of the ink leak has changed due to the change in the position of the ink cartridge. If it changes, it is an ink cartridge problem. It is recommended to replace the ink cartridge; if there is no change, the machine is more likely to have problems, and you need to contact Epson official.

How to Maintain Different Formats Sublimation Plotters?

Sublimation plotters, like any other machine, will give you a few issues over the years. Small format and large format machines have different maintenance activities.Properly maintaining your sublimation plotter can add years to its life.

1. Small format Sublimation Plotters

Check nozzles of the sublimation printer first thing in the morning. This activity will be your safety net in the event that the automatic checks performed by the machine miss anything. If you do this, you will be able to ensure that the transfer will be perfect every time.

Do not switch off the machine. Unlike their older versions, the newer models go to their hibernation mode when they are not in use. They move into a self-maintenance mode at regular intervals. The automatic software checks the nozzles and moves the ink to ensure that your printer always gives the best performance. Ink is not used in the process.

Ink levels are important. This makes sure that your transfers always turn out great. You will be notified by the machine when the ink levels are near empty. You can keep your eyes on the LCD panel and figure out the time when you must order ink so that it is not exhausted in the middle of a job. The same rule is applicable to the waste tank. The LCD screen will show the tank level count. Remember that it goes up, and not down, for maintenance tanks. In case the tank becomes full, it will not be possible for you to print.

2.Large format Sublimation Plotters

Clean the capping station. This is a rectangular pad and small in size. Use the Q-tip to clean the outside of the rubber lip. This will clear any buildup of ink. Ensure that a strong seal is formed for the maximum amount of suction. This will be needed for cleanings and things similar in process. Pour cleaning solution at frequent intervals to make sure the pad remains clean.

Wiper blade should be cleaned. This blade is important to the workings of the machine. The head moves across it and wipes off excess ink. The ink drains to the maintenance tank positioned underneath the setup. In case the wiper blade becomes dirty or saturated with ink, it cannot completely perform the job.

Our company have many kinds of sublimation printing materials and equipments such as sublimation papers, sublimation inks, inkjet printers and other accessories in sale. If you have any demand, please feel free to contact us.
