To handle the high volume of prints typical to 3D Printing or large format printing, Web
Wipes are at a high frequency installed manually by heavily trained operators. Installing
a Web Wipe is a challenging task that involves the user reaching into the machine from
the front and the top simultaneously. This is very cumbersome and time-consuming,
especially for smaller individuals, and can be very messy getting agent/ink on the user
and the machine. In a production environment the downtime of this task contributes
significantly to the overall operating expense of the equipment.
