Avoid Downtime & Save Money When you use Clean Start®, you can also avoid unnecessary downtime and disruptions caused by premature printhead failures. The result is less money spent replacing costly printheads.
Testing Proves the Advantages of Clean Start® RibbonsWhat happens when you don’t clean your printhead? We conducted an extreme test to find out. We printed a typical, heavy-use application utilizing a new printhead. Then, we cleaned half of the printhead with Clean Start® every time a new ribbon was loaded and left the other half uncleaned. The results after only one million linear inches were dramatic. Take a look at the actual results.
Dirty PrintheadOver time, debris hardens and actually bakes onto the printhead elements. This blocks heat transfer which compromises print quality and head life. Notice how the test label print quality has degraded over time.
Clean Start® PrintheadClean printhead elements require less heat to transfer images and ensure consistent print quality. As a result, test label image quality remained crisp throughout the print run.
