Title (EN) SERVICE STATION FOR INKJET PRINTHEADS
(FR) STATION D'ENTRETIEN POUR TETES D'IMPRESSION A JET D'ENCRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A service station (36) for servicing printheads, particularly inkjet printheads, which includes at least one blade-shaped wiper (78) and a plurality of pressure operated sprayers (74) fed with cleaning agents. The service station is subject to translational motion in both vertical and horizontal directions by an XY motion mechanism (108). In a method of employing the service station, the sprayers spray the cleaning agent onto the printhead prior to wiping.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de station d'entretien (36) pour l'entretien de têtes d'impression, notamment de têtes d'impression à jet d'encre. Ledit système comprend au moins un racleur (78) en forme de lame et plusieurs gicleurs (74) sensibles à la pression, alimentés en agents nettoyants. La station d'entretien décrit un mouvement translationnel dans les sens verticaux et horizontaux, mouvement commandé par un mécanisme de déplacement XY (108). Dans un procédé d'utilisation de la station d'entretien, les gicleurs pulvérisent l'agent nettoyant sur la tête d'impression avant qu'elle soit raclée.
