Default Re: Turn off or leave on all the time

Any time you do a head cleaning ink is used equally from all channels. On the Kiosk or K-2 you will use an average of about 1-1.5 ml of ink per head cleaning. A 3" wide strip of white that is about 12" tall will use somewhere in the area of 2-3 ml of white ink. So the decision is yours. The important thing about the head cleanings is that they keep the ink moving in the lines and dampers, even if just a bit, every 6 hours.

Hope this helps.
