Nozzle Seal

Technical glossary of Paul Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG

With the integrated automated "Sealtronic" nozzle seal in all LEIBINGER inkjet printers the nozzle and the gutter tube of an inkjet printer close airtight. This prevents the drying of ink in the print head. Even after long-term shut-down of the printer, an instant start without cleaning is guaranteed.

This unique feature guarantees an immediate start of the printer without cleaning or additional maintenance and without preventive measures after turning off or before start-up. Due to the nozzle seal, the nozzle is automatically sealed hermetically.

The nozzle and the return line will therefore not come in contact with air and any drying of ink will be prevented. A fully automatic nozzle seal on an inkjet printer guarantees an excellent instant start performance and the highest reliability with the lowest maintenance effort.
