EVOLUTION CLEAN is an innovative machine that allows the recovery of the heads of the digital machine soiled by fresh or dry ink.
Without doubt, one of the advantages of Evolution clean is the possibility process different models and types of industrial print head, for example XAAR, SEIKO, DIMATIX, TOSHIBA.
The compatibility is granted by the technology used in the cleaning process and by simply purchasing a specific assembly kit. In this way it’s possible to make Evolution Clean compatible with the heads used on your digital printing machine.
Evolution Clean: Automatic PrintHeads Cleaning System
The software is the real innovation because it makes Evolution Clean easy to use and gives the possibility to customize the cleaning cycles of the heads according to your needs.
Evolution clean has 4 programed cleaning cycles:
- Cycle 1 (17 minutes)
- Cycle 2 (65 minutes)
- Cycle 3 (105 minutes)
- Cycle 4 (167 minutes)
In addition, there is possibility to use other 8 cycles of clearing depending on your needs.
Touch display placed on the top of the machinery allows a wide and complete overview of the chosen programs and shows the operation ongoing at the moment.
The heads are cleaned using 3 steps:
- Internal cleaning is performed by insertion of the cleaner inside the head through the inlet and outlet hole of the head. This process is done either form inlet to outlet hole or in inverse way – from outlet to inlet. This first step ends with the insertion of the cleaning liquid on the basis of the impulse system to delete the rest of ink leftover.
- Superficial cleaning is made through the aid of the ultrasound controlled system. The purpose of this step is the superficial cleaning of the mask covering the nozzle soiled by ink. This process is supervised by 2 sensors that control liquid level and its temperature in order to avoid damage of the heads during the cleaning cycle.
- Nozzles cleaning is performed by creating pressure from the cleaner inside the head. The system is very simple, the cleaning liquid is inserted through the inlet hole while the outlet hole is closed through a valve. Thus, by creating a pressure inside the head it forces the liquid to exit through the nozzle holes which tend to widen during this process and eventually to be cleaned. Initially, the liquid will come out in drops at the end ti will run in full stream in all the 500 nozzles. At this point the cycle is finished.
CONSUMPTION AND FORECAST
Consumption is comparable to a normal computer (500W max). In terms of filter elements, it will be sufficient to replace the tank evacuation filter, the recirculation filter and the general filter at intervals recommended in the machinery maintenance manual.
Thanks to the partial recirculation circuit of the cleaning liquid, it is possible to save the liquid for next cleaning operations. With about 10lt of cleaner it will be possible to neat up to 15 heads.
