HP Indigo WS6000 Digital Press - Cleaning the blanket

  • Use the blanket cleaning station to clean the blanket during production.
  • Use the Print Cleaner to clean the blanket between jobs and at the end of the day.
  • Manually clean the blanket if it remains dirty after running the Print Cleaner.
  • Recover the blanket surface after a substrate-stuck-to-blanket error occurs.
Using the blanket cleaning station
  1. On the touchscreen, touch Main Menu, Options, Print Preferences, and the Blanket Cleaning tab.
    Figure : Blanket Cleaning
  2. Determine the cleaning frequency.
  3. Touch OK.
Using the Print Cleaner wizard
  1. On the touchscreen, touch Main Menu, PIP and Blanket, and Print Cleaner. The Print Cleaner wizard opens.
  2. Determine the number of blank and cleaning pages. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
Manually cleaning the blanket
  caution:
Wear safety glasses and gloves for this procedure.
To manually clean the blanket:
  1. Fold the lint-free wipe four times.
  2. Gently rub the blanket with the folded wipe, change the wipe's side when one side gets dirty.
  3. If the blanket is still soiled, dampen the lint-free wipe in imaging oil and rub the blanket until the ink residue and other contamination are removed.
  4. Continue until the wipe no longer picks up residue.
Recovering the blanket surface
  • Recover the blanket surface as soon as possible after a substrate-stuck-to-blanket error occurs.
  • Immediately check for substrate or ink residues on the blanket.
  • Residues can damage the blanket if not removed immediately, while the blanket is still hot.
      caution:
    The blanket is very hot and can cause injury if handled carelessly. Access the blanket area with care. Avoid inhaling imaging oil vapors.
    Wear safety glasses and gloves for this procedure.
To recover the blanket surface:
  1. Press an Emergency Stop button and access the blanket.
  2. Using a blanket scraper, scrape away the edge of the substrate from the blanket surface.
    • If any substrate remains on the blanket, remove it carefully while the blanket is still hot.
    • If necessary, dampen a folded lint-free wipe in clean imaging oil and apply it to the substrate fragments.
    • Remove the substrate from the blanket in one piece if possible.
  3. Rotate the drum using the inch-safe method, and remove any remaining substrate fragments.
      note:
    Do not apply the imaging oil dampened, lint-free wipe across the entire substrate fragment, as this may cause the blanket to become sticky.
  4. Lower the ITM hood and close the upper feed door.
  5. Touch Get Ready.
  6. Select Main Menu, PIP and Blanket, and Print Cleaner to open the Print Cleaner wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
    • If the time allocated for handling a substrate jam has expired, a message informs you to clean the blanket manually before proceeding.
    • If required by the system, recover the blanket surface.
  7. Resume printing. Monitor the print quality of several prints after a substrate-stuck-to-blanket error. Full blanket recovery happens only after several images have been printed.
