How to operate the DTF film printer before the holiday?
The printhead of the DTF t-shirt printer needs to be kept wet at all times in order to carry out better printing work. So what should I do if the printheads are clogged because I haven’t started the DTF t-shirt printer for a long time?
The first solution is to use the cleaning function that comes with the device to clean a few times. If the problem still can not be solved, then only the printhead is disassembled for manual cleaning. If even manual cleaning can not solve the problem, only to replace the new nozzle. The printhead is a more important accessory of the DTF machine, which directly affects the printing effect. Replacing printheads is also a big expense. So we recommend that you make sure to maintain your printheads! SUBLICOOL gives a few long downtimes on how to maintain the DTF machine printheads to all customers and friends to refer to the method!
