Cleaning Roller Assembly

This page is relevant for Magicard direct-to-card printers, except Pronto.

The cleaning rollers are an integral and crucial part of your printer to clean the card surface upon entry and protect against:

– dirt/dust/foreign object ingress.

– damage and potential printhead damage.

Therefore keeping your printer in perfect working condition.

 


 

There are 2 cleaning rollers in your printer that work together:

Orange Tacky Roller

Cleans the card surface upon entry from the rear feed hopper.

It lives inside the printer at the back beneath the blue sticky roller.
The orange roller below shown in the correct position:

Blue Sticky Roller

 

Dirt/dust/debris is transferred from the orange tacky roller to the blue sticky roller.

– The blue roller ‘stores’ the dirt/debris until replacement.

👉  A New blue roller is supplied with Every new genuine Magicard Dye Film.

⚠️  Just remember not to discard the metal shaft along with the old roller!

How to fit the blue sticky roller

  1. Prepare the cleaning roller.
  2. Open the printer lid.
  3. Pull out the unused cleaning roller.
  4. SWAP THE MATAL SHAFT TO THE NEW ROLLER – DO NOT DISCARD THE METAL SHAFT.
  5. Place the new cleaning roller back into printer.
  6. Peel off white protective layer with the yellow tab carefully to reveal tacky surface.
