Demystifying the reason why the inkjet printer head needs to be cleaned frequently

Friends who often use inkjet printing machines should know that the inkjet printer head of wide format inkjet printers need to be cleaned frequently, so why?

Ink is a volatile liquid that volatizes in the air to clear solids, which is the main cause of nozzle blockage. When the printhead is sprayed on the cloth, a part of the ink remains in the surrounding area. This part of the ink is dried in the air and slowly makes the nozzle hole smaller or even blocks the nozzle hole. But because it is outside the nozzle, it is easy to clean, which is why we often clean the printhead.
