The Premier Cleaning Kit consists of 50 pre-saturated cleaning cards and 25 cleaning swabs. Regular use of the cleaning cards will keep your card printer clean and maintain important parts of the printer (printhead, transport rollers,and magnetic encoder station). The cleaning swabs can be used when print anomalies appear on cards, to remove visible deposits from the print head. It is important to never use a sharp object to scrape deposits from the printhead, as it may permanently damage it.
Zebra recommends cleaning the card printer every 1,000 cards and replacing the cleaning roller of the cleaning cartridge every 1,000 cards if used daily. If printer is used periodically, replace the cleaning roller at least every four months.
