In metal print band technology, it is known to use brushes, either fixed or rotating, to remove contaminating material from the print elements and/or the emitter slots of the band. However, even these processes require periodic removal and cleaning of the brushes. This article describes an improvement to these devices that eliminates the need for periodic removal of the band and brushes for cleaning.
