The printhead has a reservoir which should be flushed before and after printing the templates to ensure maximum reproducibility and reliability.
Pre-printing Flush Edit
The initial flush helps ensure that all color channels contain the appropriate metal in the full concentration, assuring better reproducibility.
Post-printing flush Edit
The post-printing flush ensures that the printhead is free of potentially corrosive or particulate-forming solutes. This will help prevent clogging and ensure future reliability.
