Title (EN) PRINTHEAD MAINTENANCE STATION AND METHOD OF OPERATING SAME
(FR) STATION DE MAINTENANCE DE TÊTE D'IMPRESSION ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FONCTIONNEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A printhead maintenance station (130) to cleaning a nozzle plate of a printhead (106a, 106b) and a method of operating the printhead maintenance station (130) are disclosed. The printhead maintenance station (130) includes a wiper bar, a wiper (152a, 152b) secured to the wiper bar, a wiper cleaning assembly, and an actuator. The wiper (152a, 152b) is stored in the wiper cleaning assembly when not in use. The controller operates the actuator to rotate the wiper bar to move the wiper (152a, 152b) from the wiper cleaning assembly to a wiping position, and causes relative movement of the printhead maintenance station (130) and the print unit (102) to wipe the nozzle plate with the wiper (152a, 152b).
(FR) La présente invention concerne une station de maintenance de tête d'impression (130) permettant de nettoyer une plaque de buses d'une tête d'impression (106a, 106b) et un procédé de fonctionnement de la station de maintenance de tête d'impression (130). La station de maintenance de tête d'impression (130) comprend une barre d'essuyage, un racloir (152a, 152b) fixé à la barre d'essuyage, un ensemble de nettoyage par essuyage et un actionneur. Lorsqu'il n'est pas utilisé, le racloir (152a, 152b) est logé dans l'ensemble de nettoyage par essuyage. Le dispositif de commande actionne l'actionneur pour faire tourner la barre d'essuyage afin de déplacer le racloir (152a, 152b) de l'ensemble de nettoyage par essuyage vers une position d'essuyage et provoque un mouvement relatif de la station de maintenance de tête d'impression (130) et de l'unité d'impression (102) pour essuyer la plaque de buses avec le racloir (152a, 152b).
