Abstract

PURPOSE:To rapidly perform recording operation by cleaning the orifice part of a recording head within a short time, by providing a rotatable and movable cleaning member for removing the liquid and/or foreign matter adhered to orifices to a restoration device. CONSTITUTION:When a restoration device 1a moves toward a recording head 7 in the direction shown by an arrow B, an orifice surface 7a is contacted with a cleaning member 1 and a shaft 8 is pressed to a holder 9 with the movement of the restoration device 1a and, therefore, the cleaning member 1 performs the cleaning of the orifice surface 7a from above to below along a groove 10. The cleaning member 1 present at a solid line position in the first place moves in the direction shown by an arrow (c) and, subsequently, the restoration device 1a moves toward the recording head 7 as it is to perform the capping of orifices by a cap 4 and, when said device 1a is separated from the recording head 7, the cleaning member 1 returns to the solid line position by the springs 8a mounted to both ends of the shaft 8. As the cleaning member, a cylindrical member comprising an elastomer such as plastic or rubber or one formed by applying flocking to the shaft 8 in a blade form may be used.
