1. The UV ink has just been added to the ink cartridge and has not yet entered the ink supply path. In this case, you only need to replace a new ink cartridge.

2. If the UV ink has entered the ink supply path, the entire ink path needs to be cleaned, and the corresponding filter must be replaced. If it is not clean, the entire ink supply system needs to be replaced.

3. If the cleaning function has been turned on, it means that the ink has entered the nozzle. At this time, you need to remove the nozzle immediately, clean the nozzle with cleaning fluid, and discharge all the ink as much as possible.

Fourth, if the nozzle is severely clogged, you need to find a professional to deal with it.

UV ink and eco-solvent ink determine their respective application methods and application fields due to their own essential characteristics. Because uv ink can be used together with white ink, many manufacturers can print some beautiful embossing effects. This is done by first accumulating white ink with embossing effect, and then printing with color UV ink to achieve embossing effect. The eco-solvent cannot be mixed with white ink, so there is no way to print the relief effect.

In addition, since many materials of poorly soluble ink need to be coated during printing, printed products without coating treatment are easy to fade; while UV ink can be directly used to print many materials without any The coating treatment is simple, convenient and practical.
