Cleaning device, cleaning method and liquid ejecting apparatus

Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To decrease consumption of liquid in cleaning operation.SOLUTION: A cleaning device includes: a belt member which is disposed opposing to a jet surface in which a plurality of nozzles that jet the liquid out of liquid jet heads are formed and can hold the liquid; a pressure part which presses a part of the belt members to the jet surface side; a detection part which can detect the jet state of the liquid by the plurality of nozzles; and a control part which controls the pressure part so that the liquid of a defective nozzle out of the plurality of nozzles, of which detection result by the detection part is defective may adhere to the belt member.
【課題】クリーニング動作における液体の消費量を低減させること。 【解決手段】液体噴射ヘッドのうち液体を噴射する複数のノズルが形成された噴射面に対向して配置され、前記液体を保持可能なベルト部材と、前記ベルト部材の一部を前記噴射面側に押圧する押圧部と、複数の前記ノズルによる前記液体の噴射状態を検出可能な検出部と、複数の前記ノズルのうち前記検出部の検出結果が不良であった不良ノズルの液体が前記ベルト部材に付着するように前記押圧部を制御する制御部とを備える。 【選択図】図1
