Printhead Station

The Printhead Station has two parts: the removable Top and the non-removable Base. The Top comes off for easy cleaning of its components. See the section Clean Printhead Station for more information.

B Cap - The printhead purges binder into this area to maintain jetting stability. When the printer is idle, the printhead parks over this space.
C Soaking Platform - The printhead jets park over this platform when running the Soak Printhead procedure.
