Abstract

PURPOSE:To prevent the overmuch deposition of stains, etc., as well as exactly remove the stains by integrally incorporating a porous part to remove stains adhered to a nozzle cap and a cleaner to a tank as an exchangeable part to store ink. CONSTITUTION:A nozzle cap 21 turns in the direction of arrow, and the tips of the nozzles 3a and 3b of an ink jet head 3 are cleaned by rubbing by means of a cleaner 24a, during which period ink is jetted from the nozzle 3b. While flowing ink, the tip end of the nozzle 3a is cleaned by the cleaner 24a. Ink and stains adhered to the nozzle cap 21 are removed out by the porous part 25 in this way. The porous part 25, which is incorporated integrally with tanks 4 and 5, is exchanged at the same time as the tanks 4 and 5 are exchanged. These are renewed each time the exchange is made, and stains adhered to the nozle cap 21 can thus be exactly removed out.
