Abstract

PURPOSE: To prevent mixing of color inks from occurring by providing a cleaning blade for exclusive use for each recording head, and moving the blade in the longitudinal direction of the head to clean an ejecting surface of the head.
CONSTITUTION: Each recording head is fixed to a head block 6, and cleaning blades 500C, 500M, 500Y and 500Bk for exclusive use for the heads, respectively, are disposed respectively at ejecting surfaces of the heads for each color. The blades are formed of an elastic material such as a silicone rubber, and are held by blade holders 501C, 501M, 501Y, 501Bk, respectively. An ink partition plate 8 is provided between each adjacent pair of the blades, and an ink seal is adhered between each of the partition plate 8 and the head block 6. Ink droplets containing refuse, bubbles or the like scraped off the ejecting surfaces by the blades flows along the partition plates 8 to drop into a recovering container 2, from which the recovered ink is discharged through an ink discharging port 13 into an ink discharging tank. The blade with the ink adhered thereto is cleaned by making contact with an ink absorber 502 disposed on the outside of the head. Thus, the refuse, bubbles and the like are securely removed from nozzle parts, and mixing of color inks can be prevented from occurring.
