Regular preventive cleaning of the printing head will extend its service life
Did you know that the manufacturer of your thermal transfer printer recommends regular cleaning of the printing head? This is needed to protect it from early damage and a poor printing quality.
Cleaning is necessary to eliminate all the residues that are generated during the printing process, such as the label dust, paint, glue, etc. Over time, this residue will become a permanent barrier between the printing head and the label, which results in a poor printing quality. Users will then usually increase the printing temperature, thus reducing the service life of the head.
We offer an efficient, cheap and safe way of cleaning the printing head yourself.
These are wet wipes used for cleaning the printing head.
No matter whether it is a standard printer for labels used in the office or an industrial one, all printers need to be cleaned at regular intervals.
We recommend cleaning the printing head each time you change the colour bar.
