Maintaining Your Plastic Card Printer

Proper maintenance of an ID card printer is essential in ensuring the system’s longevity and ability to perform at a high level. Cleaning the printer is a simple procedure that, when done regularly, can easily prevent the most common difficulties encountered by users, and helps in avoiding expensive repair costs. The printer should be cleaned every time a print ribbon/cartridge is changed. Depending on the printer, this can be as few as 165 prints, and as many as about 500 prints.

Some of the more typical issues that result from dirty printers include card jams, broken ribbons, and streaky printing. These can easily be avoided by cleaning the printer on a consistent basis. AlphaCard offers cleaning kits and accessories for ID card printer systems from a variety of top manufacturers.
