For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a look back to 2011 and a story detailing proper card printer maintenance. With the current academic calendar coming to a close and the all important summer months upon us, now is a great time for a refresher on the key components of card printer maintenance.
In our “Keeping your card printer in tip-top shape,” hear from ColorID’s Mark Degan about how cleanliness is next to godliness when it comes to your card printer.
Campus card printer are complex machines, so it should come as no surprise that routine upkeep is a must. Card printers contain both moving parts and sensitive, precise components that have to be maintained and kept cleaned to avoid jamming, compromised performance, or irreparable damage.
Losing a printer during those key, peak times — like the fast-approaching orientation period — can leave a card office dead in the water. It’s vital to do the legwork now, and get your printers in perfect working order so that when the work starts coming thick and fast, your operation won’t skip a beat.
In addition to discussing manufacturer maintenance options, Degan lays out a schedule for card offices to follow that will keep its printers working like the well-oiled machines they’re meant to be.
