How do you maintain a photocopier? If you have been used to a desktop printer, then you likely know that these are sadly treated as disposable equipment and simply replaced when a fault develops. However, with a photocopier, maintenance will help to keep it in great working order. Many businesses have benefitted from seeking the advice of Bristol based Image Business Machines. If you have a UTAX photocopier, how can you maintain it so that it does not become damaged and require repair?
A key principle of UTAX photocopier maintenance is to take care of it in daily use. Making sure that it is treated carefully will naturally enhance the working life of the machine. Remove staples and paperclips before photocopying, as these can scratch the glass or jam up the moving parts of the machine. Also, avoiding simple accidents, like resting coffee mugs on it whilst using the UTAX photocopier, will prevent avoidable damage. Making sure that pages with wet corrector fluid on are not run through the UTAX photocopier will also prevent marks appearing on the glass.
A further suggestion for UTAX photocopier maintenance is to keep it clean and dust free. It is easy to vacuum and dust around the photocopier but forget to make sure that it is free of dust, especially around any vent panels. Gently wiping the glass, without spraying chemicals on it, will also prevent a build-up of marks and dust which will affect the quality of the prints.
It is a good idea to monitor the parts on the UTAX photocopier to identify if any are looking worn or damaged so that they can be replaced by a technician before they fail, preventing jams and damage which will affect other parts of the machine.
One of the best ways to maintain your UTAX photocopier is to have a regular maintenance service. For this, you need to find a reputable and experienced engineer who knows the model you have well. By arranging for regular maintenance on your photocopier, you can avoid breakdowns and problems at inconvenient moments. But it is important to only use experienced and reliable engineers to maintain your photocopier. It is easy to open the panels on a photocopier, but these are precision equipment. The last thing you want is for someone to damage your equipment, leaving you stuck with no photocopier and urgent print jobs for your business.
