Difference between a refurbished Brother GTX printhead and a new one.
A reconditioned Brother GTX printhead don't make it new product. However, it prolongs its lifespan. Manutech-Print cleans completely, unclogs and we change components if necessary.
Of course, if the nozzles are clogged when the DTG printer has had really little use, it recovers full life,

How do Brother GTX print heads clog ?
There are several reasons why the print head of a Brother GTX printer may become clogged:
Low-quality or expired direct-to-garment ink.
Using poor quality or expired DTG ink can cause clogged Brother GTX/GTX Pro nozzles. Manutech-Print recommends using OEM brand or higher quality DTG ink. Although the cost is still more expensive than other lowcost inks, it avoids textile printing defects and the regular and expensive replacement of printheads. Also remember checking the expiration date of the textile ink.
Regular maintenance of inadequate Brother GTX printheads.
If the Brother DTG Printer is properly unmaintained and cleaned regularly, the print head nozzles will clog. Several possible elements can clog the nozzles of the Brother GTX like residues of dried ink, dust or fibres from clothing.
Irregular use of the DTG printer.
A printer must work regularly. A gap of several days between each textile personnalisation can also cause problems with printheads clogging. The ink dries naturally and then forms a clog that clogs the nozzles.
Recommended working environment for DTG printing.
Changes in temperature, humidity, or other environmental conditions can equally affect printhead operation. For optimal print quality, prefer a standard temperature between 18°C and 30°C and a humidity level between 40 and 70%.
Brother GTX printhead design or manufacturing issues.
In rare cases, the printhead may be faulty or poorly designed, which can cause clogging issues.
Manutech-Print's advice: Regularly clean the two print heads of your DTG printer to maintain print quality and extend the life of the DTG printer.
Brother t-shirt printer component failure.
The nozzles of the Brother GTX can clog due to a defect in the maintenance station also called capping station or a defect in a Brother wiper (GTX wiper cleaner and GTXPro).
