If the printer prompts that the usage life of the FEP film has expired, but the FEP film is not damaged, it is up to personal preference to decide whether to replace the FEP film.
If the printer prompts that the usage life of the FEP film has expired and the FEP film has been damaged (resin has leaked onto the screen), the FEP film must be replaced.
If the printer does not prompt anything, but the FEP film is damaged, the FEP film must also be replaced.
Note: This message indicates that the print count of the FEP film has reached its preset usage life. The usage life of the NFEP release film is about 30,000 layers, and that of the FEP film is about 10,000 layers. However, if the FEP film is not damaged at this time, it is possible to choose not to replace it.
You could try using alcohol-soaked tissue to wrap the resin on the screen (to soften it), then use a scraper to remove the resin from the screen.
If the resin cannot be removed by this method, please remove the screen protector and replace it with a new one (a new machine kit comes with a new screen protector). This not only directly removes the resin but also avoids having no protection on the screen after the FEP film is damaged next time.
You can click on "Tools"--"Status"to view the usage status of the FEP film. Based on the usage status, you can choose whether or not to replace the FEP film. (This function is for reference only.)
