How to Clean Large Format Inkjet Printers for Industrial Applications

by | Jan 11, 2023

Ink jet printing is a versatile and widely used printing technology that has found applications in many different industrial settings, including auto body wraps, ultrafine printing on medical device and flexible electronics (as pictured above). To produce high-quality prints, it is important to keep the print heads clean and free of ink build-up. However, wiping action can sometimes damage the delicate print heads, leading to reduced print quality and reduced service life.

Here are just a few examples of the many ways in which industrial ink jet printing is being used today:

  1. Medical devices and equipment: Ink jet printing is being used to produce a wide range of medical devices and equipment, such as drug delivery devices and surgical instruments.
  2. Automotive parts and components: Ink jet printing is being used to produce a variety of automotive parts and components, including engine parts and structural components.
  3. Electronic components: Ink jet printing is being used to produce a wide range of electronic components, including circuit boards and sensors.

To overcome these challenges, many ink jet printers are now using UltraSORB hydrophilic absorbent wipers. These wipers are specifically designed to remove ink build-up from print heads without damaging them.

One of the key features of UltraSORB wipers is their hydrophilic nature, which means they have an affinity for water and other liquids. This allows the print heads to be thoroughly cleaned using a light pressing motion and eliminates the damage to the print head caused by back-and-forth wiping action. The highly absorbent nature of the wipers allows excess ink and contaminants to be removed from the print heads using only a very light touch.

In addition to their cleaning capabilities, UltraSORB wipers are also highly durable and long-lasting. They can be used repeatedly without losing their effectiveness, making them a cost-effective solution for maintaining clean print heads.

Overall, UltraSORB wipers are an excellent choice for improving the performance of ink jet printers. By effectively removing ink build-up and other contaminants from the print heads, they help ensure the production of high-quality prints and enhanced overall performance.
