Digital printing machines are inkjet printing, which we all know, so ink is an indispensable part. Saving ink is also a form of profit. So how can you save dye sublimation ink and save ink in the process of printing? Here we briefly introduce:
1. Set the print mode correctly. In general, the text we print does not need to be very detailed, as long as it can be seen clearly. The printing mode can be flexibly used before printing, which can effectively save heat transfer ink. There are many options for the options in the print mode. The finer the print quality, the more ink is consumed. So for general printing tasks, choose the production mode.
2. Use all the ink cartridges. When printing, usually about 20% of the remaining ink cartridge will indicate insufficient ink, reminding you to replace the ink cartridge. In this case, we can ignore the need to continue the print job until a drop of ink is finished.
3. Use the cartridge protection card to save. Some brands do not have this protection card, and some brands have this feature. If you buy a device, it will come with a card that holds the ink cartridges (some common cartridges are also available), so we should be good at it. Because the printer is not used for a long time, the ink in the cartridge is easily dried, especially in a dry environment. If you don’t use a digital printer for a long time. You can take the cartridge and put it in a cardboard case, then put it in a sealed plastic bag to slow down the dye sublimation ink.
4. Minimize the number of switching machines. Concentrate the fragmentary file printing tasks and print them together to save ink consumption. Because each time the digital printer starts, it initializes the printer and automatically cleans the printhead and refills the ink delivery system. This requires a lot of sublimation ink. Therefore, you should try to put the print jobs together for printing, and do not turn the machine on and off at will.
