Digital Sublimation Printing Machine Daily Maintenance Tips

How much do you know about the daily maintenance of digital sublimation printing machines? Whether you have not spent time on system maintenance since you bought the machine. How to really play its value, just a daily maintenance work is essential.

Daily maintenance content

Grating: Observe whether there is dust and stains on the grating. If cleaning is required, it is recommended to wipe it with a white cloth dipped in alcohol. The cleanliness and position changes of the grating will affect the movement of the ink carriage and the printing effect.

Filter: Regularly check whether there is blockage, and clean and replace it in time.

Ink stack cap: keep it clean at all times, because the ink stack cap is an accessory that directly contacts the print head.

Scraper: The ink stack cleaning unit is kept clean, and the scraper is kept clean and undamaged to avoid affecting the ink scraping effect.

Ink cartridges and ink barrels: Clean the ink cartridges and waste ink barrels regularly. After long-term use, the ink remaining at the bottom of the ink cartridges and waste ink barrels may agglomerate, resulting in poor ink flow. It is necessary to clean the ink cartridges and waste ink barrels regularly.

Voltage regulator: It is recommended that each machine be equipped with a voltage regulator (only for printers, except for drying), not less than 3000W.

Ink: Ensure sufficient ink in the ink cartridge to avoid nozzle emptying, causing damage and blockage of the nozzle.

Printing platform: Keep the printing platform free of foreign objects to avoid scratches and damage to the nozzle.


Nozzle: Regularly check whether there is any accumulation of debris on the mirror surface of the nozzle and clean it up. You can move the trolley to the cleaning position, and use a cotton swab dipped in cleaning solution to clean the ink residue around the nozzle, so as not to affect the cleaning effect.

Ink sac: If the machine is used for a long time, check whether the ink sac is loose.

Transmission part: Apply grease to the transmission part, and regularly add grease to the meshing position of the gears, such as: the air shaft gear for feeding and unwinding, the guide rail slider, and the ink stack lifting mechanism. (It is recommended to add proper amount of grease to the long belt of the horizontal trolley motor, which can effectively reduce noise.)

Circuit inspection: Check whether the power cord and socket are aging.

Dryer: Regularly check whether the power supply of the dryer is aging and whether the internal lamp is damaged.

Air pump: Check whether the air pressure of the air pump is normal.

Working environment requirements: There is no dust in the room, so as to avoid the influence of dust on the layers of printing materials and ink consumables.

Environmental requirements:

1. The room should be dust-proof, and it cannot be placed in an environment prone to smoke and dust, and the ground should be kept clean.

2. Try to maintain a constant temperature and humidity environment. Generally, the temperature is 18°C-30°C and the humidity is 35%-65%.

3. No objects, especially liquids, can be placed on the surface of the machine.

4. The position of the machine should be flat, and it must be flat when loading materials, otherwise the long printing screen will be deviated.

5. There should be no commonly used household appliances near the machine, and keep away from large magnetic fields and electric fields.
