The maintenance of self-adhesive printers mainly focuses on cleaning. The more frequently the printer is used, the more it needs to be cleaned. The specific parts that need to be cleaned are as follows:
1.Clean the print head
The print head is a very important part of the self-adhesive printer, and it needs to be cleaned frequently. Be careful to turn off the power when cleaning, and use a squeeze cleanroom swab for cleaning tools. Tear open the packaging of the squeeze cleanroom swab, keep the same direction and wipe gently (wiping back and forth will cause dirt residue) until it is wiped clean, then dry the print head with a dry cotton cloth or swab.
2.Clean the sensor
The sensor of the self-adhesive printer is an important part of identifying the ribbon and label paper. Keeping the sensor clean can avoid errors in measuring paper and ribbon. Generally, it is cleaned once every 3 to 6 months. You can also use cotton swabs and alcohol, wipe it clean and then dry it.
3.Clean the roller
The roller also needs to be cleaned frequently, about once every 3 days. If the self-adhesive printer is used frequently, it is best to clean it once a day. The cleaning tools are also cleanroom swabs. While rotating the roller by hand, scrub with a cleanroom swab dipped in alcohol, and then dry it after cleaning.
4.Clean the transmission shaft and channel
The shaft and channel of the transmission are also places that need to be cleaned frequently, because the self-adhesive used is easy to stick to it, which will affect the printing effect. The cleaning method is to wipe the surface of each shaft and channel of the transmission with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol, wipe it clean and then dry it. Cleaning frequency is about once a week.
5.Clean the glue stick
When the self-adhesive printer is printing, the label paper will leave a lot of powder on the glue stick. If it is not cleaned in time, it will shorten the life of the print head and affect the printing effect. Therefore, the glue stick is also a place that needs to be cleaned frequently. The cleaning method is to use a cotton swab dipped in alcohol, scrub the glue stick until it is clean, and then dry it.
