Inkjet head cleaning
Modern Ink-Jet printing technology is not reliable.
One of the most common problems is limited flow
and even total blockage of piezoelectric heads
in industrial printers. Every year, thousands of them lose their usefulness, which generates enormous costs. Until now, no one has developed an effective way to regenerate the heads of INK-JET printers. It used to be like that!
To meet the expectations of our customers, as the only one in Poland we have introduced the service of cleaning piezoelectric heads using patented technology and People & Technology devices.
CleanJector® technology is a range of patented mechanical processes and systems that enable the regeneration of most piezoelectric heads, regardless of brand or degree of blockage. If the head is not mechanically or electronically defective, a full unblocking of the head is possible. The benefits of this, both economically
and strategically, are indisputable.
Piezoelectric head unblocking is just one possible application for CleanJector®. Regular and preventive use of CleanJector® extends the life of the piezoelectric head and maintains the highest level of print quality, thus avoiding defects during the printing process. From unblocking the piezoelectric heads to preventive maintenance, CleanJector®
has become an important tool in the process of supporting industrial printing.
Thanks to the specialist CleanJector® technology, designed and patented by People&Technology, whose exclusive distributor we are in Poland, and the experience of our servicemen, we provide the worn out heads with a second life, restore their full reliability and allow you to minimize the necessary expenses.
When is the printhead qualified for cleaning? Undoubtedly, the heads should be cleaned when you notice any defects on the printout, such as lack of sharpness, blurred printout or vertical misalignment and banding. However, very often such defects are noticed only when we print a large amount of media, which can cause significant losses. How can such situations be avoided? The piezoelectric heads should be cleaned regularly. It is recommended that each head, regardless of manufacturer and model, should be cleaned as a preventive maintenance every 6 months. Thanks to regular cleaning we can avoid unnecessary problems and expenses.
Check what your heads look like Send us your printhead, we will check its condition and permeability!
- The highest requirements for quality standards used
in industrial Ink-Jet printers make even the slightest print defect unacceptable.
- Clogged nozzles that result in a print sharpness loss have so far required immediate replacement of the piezoelectric head.Although there are a number of benefits, the Ink-Jet printing method is not the cheapest method and the investment costs are considerable, especially in terms of changing piezoelectric heads. That is why our company faces
these problems.You can save a significant amount of money by regenerating your piezoelectric heads. What is more, the production continuity will be maintained and, most importantly, the quality of your products will remain at the highest level. The continuity is what makes it possible to manage any company in a more considered way. Working in palliative mode is more damaging than you might think: production is out of control, product quality is degraded or lost, extra costs are generated due to delivery deadlines not being met, loss of customer confidence – these are issues you can avoid with Ink-Jet.® technology
Prioritised quality is the main objective of any company that wants to be competitive and strives to achieve the highest position.
Achieve these objectives together with CleanJector® technology, entering a new era of 4.0.
independence when testing the printheads used in Ink-Jet technology printers:
- InkTester® cooperates with the main manufacturers of piezoelectric heads: SEIKO, XAAR, DIMATIX, TOSHIBA, KONICA, MINOLTA, RICOH, KYOCERA, DURST
- Overview of the piezoelectric heads’ condition on site, with no dispatch, with no waiting
- Ink Calibration – Batch verification, comparison between manufacturers and head types on site, with no dispatch, with no waiting
- Immediate tests on ceramics, paper, glass, plastic, textiles, leather, wood and many other materials in max. 5 min. on site, with no dispatch, with no waiting
- The results achieved are identical to those obtained in the production machine, synchronization of printing parameters
InkTester® a device with no limits
InkTester® allows you to develop and control products created with the use of INK-JET printing method. It performs the same tests as a production machine, but with full independence and without having to stop the production cycle!
You have the opportunity to take control of the entire printing process. Thanks to InkTester® it is possible to perform an ink comparison test, identify the results of changes in the event of a material change, innovate and achieve new goals without having to stop the production line.
New technologies create new demands. Testing and selecting the best ink is always complex and often confusing. InkTester® has been created to resolve these doubts. Thanks to precise control over temperature and pressure, it enables all kinds of tests, either on paper or ceramics, without stopping the production process. Furthermore, InkTester® allows you to test piezoelectric heads unblocked using the technology CleanJector®, so that the two machines work together perfectly.
