1Flush humectants out of print head


To moisturize print head, lots of humectants are injected into the head before it is used. The humectants must be flushed out for the first using. Before fix the head on the print head frame, do the steps as follows: Joint a filter on the In-pipe of the head, and then joint an injector--which fills with flush solution--on the filter. Inject 10-20 ml flush solution to the head to eject the humectants inside. Then fill the head with flush solution to dissolve the humectants completely within 5-10 minutes. Finally, flush the head with about 30ml flush solution to eliminate the humectants completely. Make sure to operate on a stable and clean platform. Cautions: 1. Clean platform for convenient operation; 2. Dont touch the surface of head and socket with hand; 3. Clean the filter with flush solution; 4. Connect a pipe on the exit of the head to prevent ink flowing into the socket; 5. Dont touch the surface of head with other objects; 6. Be careful to distinguish In pipe and Out pipe of the head; Eject flush solution from the nozzles with strength no more than 0.3 kg. (It is better to hold the injector with single hand and push it with the same thumb.)

2Extrude air from the print head


After fixing the head on the head frame (be cautious of the in pipe and out pipe). Remove the Cap from the Out pipe; positive-pressure clean to fill the head with ink till ink streams out from nozzles. During the process air is extruded completely from the head.

3Moisturize print head surface


After extruding air from the head, cover the Cap on the Out pipe. Positive-pressure clean again until ink streams out of the nozzles, then scrub the head surface with a dry clean stick to form a protecting layer of ink on the head surface. The ink on the surface will stream into the nozzles because of negative pressure.

Notes:
Never scrub the head surface when head surface is dry, for that will orient air into the nozzles and shape bubbles in the pipelines and affect the printing quality.

3.7.4 Cleaning and maintenance of the print head


1. Ink replace Flush the print head with the original ink first, and then flush it again with new flush solution, which matches the new ink. Avoid sunlight and irradiation of UV lamp when replace the ink. 2. Print head cleaning If low quality printing takes place, a positive-pressure cleaning is proper for the head. After positive pressure cleaning, scrub the head surface with a dry clean stick to stop ink streaming from the nozzles. Be sure not to use a stick with flush solution to scrub the head surface, otherwise, the flush solution will be siphoned into the nozzles. 3. Moisturize print head Use a dry-prevent bracket if the printer is left unused and always keep the bracket clean. Put a clean non-woven fabric on the sponge of bracket and drop some flush solution on it because the sponge usually has dust on it. Wrap the bracket with a black plastic cloth to avoid sunlight. If no dry-prevent bracket is ready, use a clean non-woven fabric with some flush solution on it to wrap the print head with a fresh-keep polyester film and then wrap it with a black plastic cloth.

3.8 Connect With Power


1. 2. After all the parts installed, move printer to its working area and clean up the package. Connect power cables, including power for printer and heater, printing data cable. Protective switch only works for heaters power. Usually this switch should be at status of On (switch on above, far from red point) 3. 4. 5. Movel the print head frame from right to left of printer to ensure no exceptional situation. Feed in media and printer enters waiting status. Then go in test printing. Observe ink drop. If not good, clean print head again.

3.9 Negative pressure adjustment


1. Functions of negative pressure:Negative pressure holds ink in the nozzles to prevent it dropping down from the print heads and keep ink in balance. 2. How to judge negative pressure if normal: Ink dripping on print head can be analysed to confirm negative pressure normal or not: First, press positive pressure cleaning key on cleaning operation panel, for appearing the ink dripping on print head. Then make it still and observe it sucked back slowly or dropping. If the ink dripping is dropping, it shows that the negative pressure value is too low. Generally speaking, the negative pressure value should be adjusted at the list value, which can ensure the ink dripping not dropping. For too high negative pressure, ink will be blocked or clogged during print; for too low negative pressure, ink cant be held in the nozzles. So print quality will be affectted.

Remark1: Ink curve-Viscosity and Voltage

User can choose different curves for different ink types and different situations. We suggest to use the ink type we point and choose correspond curve. If youre using a different ink type, please contact us. Otherwise consequence are responsible.

Remark2: EF value setting Each Xaar126 head has its own EF value. Manufacture always provides a standard EF value, which is captured under standard condition. Users input this value at column Voltage. Usually, the printing effect is good. The value is marked on the head. It is also saved in the chip of print head driver. User can download it directly. If the voltage is too high, it produces the satellites and ink supply is easy to breakIf the voltage is too low, the printing line is not straight and easy to have an angle. Besides, ink volume is small and output color is light. Therefore, every head has its optimal EF value. When adjusting, you can adjust the EF value one by one. Usually user neednt to adjust EF value.

Note:

When install print head, select the 2 with same or similar EF value for 1 color, or it will cause different color of front and rear print heads.

Chapter 8 Cleaning System


8.1 Summary
Print head clean is necessary when nozzles are clogged after long time printing, or even before printing. Positive pressure drives ink to print head and rush it-this is called Positive pressure cleaning. Its operated only by one press on the button. When finish one days work, clean the print head and cover the clog-prevent bracket on it and even wrap a black gobo on the bracket. If the printer will be left idle for a long period, clean the print head and fill it with solution, and also cover it with clog-prevent bracket. These will all protect the print head and prolong it life.

NoteThis type of printer cant use bi-direction mode to printing. Adjust feeding compensation, if the images printed have apertures, the feeding compensation should be minished,if superpose ,this value should be raised up. Test methods of the compensation value in other printing modes ibid. Observe the different situation of feeding compensation in magnifying glass:

Big

Small

Normal

Print dots with different feeding compensations

If the feeding compensation set too big, there is a gap between each pass printing. So reduce the parameter will help improve the print quality. If the compensation set too small there is overlap between each pass printing. So increase the parameter will help. Both affect the image quality. If a common mode, can be used directly ,and adjust it in the Adjustment\Rectangle of the equipment.

Note: Feeding compensation is different from the print mode, so adjust the feeding compensation for each print mode. 9.3 The commonly used tools of status bar There are several commonly used tools in the status bar:

10.2 Usage of UV lamp


10.2.1 Start Up Install and connect the system as previously described. Ensure that the light shielding and extraction systems as required, are operational. The extraction system must be activated prior to switching on the lamps.
The system is activated by closing the Mains On/Off Switch on the rear of the power supply. The blue Mains On light will illuminate on the operators panel. At this point the cooling fan on the UV power supply will start.

10.2.2 Button operation Note: If a remote control unit is plugged in to the rear of the unit and a remote input signal is present. The On and increase / decrease buttons will not operate. The red off button will remain active.

Decrease Power

The UV lamp head is activated pressing either of the power switches (Increase or Decrease). The UV lamp will light and begin emitting UV light. The lower three indicator LEDs of the respective lamp will flash at rate of 1Hz, to indicate burn-in. The above two indicators flash showing the final power level selected. The Lamp head fan is switched off to enable the UV lamp head to reach its operating temperature. After a sixty-second pre-set time, the UV lamp head will be up to its normal operating temperature and the timer system will restart the lamp head cooling fan. After a pre-set time the indicators will cease flashing. This indicates that the UV system is ready for operation and so curing can commence. When a remote signal is present, the power level buttons are disabled. The lamp must be switched on by the remote signal. The red off button will work regardless of operation control.

10.2.3 Remote Control Units


For remote controlled systems, all operating signals are provided by the host machine. When an auxiliary remote control unit is used, the operation described previously will be present on the remote control unit.

Infiniti Fina1612S Users Manual

10.2.4 Shut down The system must be shut down in the following sequence! The UV lamp head must be switched off using the UV Lamp Off Switch only.
As the UV lamp head is switched off using the UV Lamp Off Switch, the UV lamp will be shut down and the indicator lights will be switched off. The cooling fans will continue to operate in order to cool the lamp and power supply. The lamp must be left to cool under the operation of the cooling fan and the extraction system for at least 5 WARNING The UV lamp must never be switched off by the mains on/off switch, this can over heat the lamp causing permanent damage. The extraction system must never be switched off before the UV lamp is switched off.

10.2.5 Re-strike
When the UV system is shut down from operating temperature, it cannot be re-stuck (re-ignited) until the lamp has cooled down. This can take up to three minutes. UV lamps are created by an arc, which may take up to five seconds to strike. Normal operation requires the fans to run for five minutes following shut down off the lamp. When a remote signal is present, the power level buttons are disabled. The lamp must be switched on by the remote signal. The red off button will work regardless of operation control.

10.2.6 System Stop The normal stop procedure is to press the red button for the respective lamp, on the front of the unit. When it is pressed. The system will enter a three-minute cool down process. All activity is inhibited whilst the fans in the lamp head operate at full power. The fan in the PSU will continue to operate. If the power supply has been subjected to an emergency stop situation, i.e. the power has been suddenly removed from the unit. It is possible that the lamp heads will be extremely hot. The internal controller will be reset as the result of the power loss, and hence the cooling fans and hot restrike suppression will not be activated. It is essential that the system be left to fully cool for ten minutes. If the unit does not immediately restrike on attempted operation, switch off immediately and leave for a further two minutes. Repeat this until the lamp ignites. Sudden removal of power and the subsequent uncontrolled shut down force the lamp to cool down in an uncontrolled manner. This significantly reduces the life of the lamp and lamp housing. WARNING: It is not recommended that the system be shut down in this manner except in a true emergency situation.
