How many prints at around 20% total cmyk is the print head expected to last?
How often does it need to go through cleaning cycles and how much ink do they use?
I am looking at HP PageWide Pro 777z and Canon WG7540.

Thank you

Both are thermal heads and they are not as durable as piezo heads made companies like Xerox, Fuji Kyocera etc. The page wide was developed initially for desktop machines and they were really not for production. You could get a replacement as a spare part for around $250. The Pagewide for the HP production printers are more durable, but again do not compare to piezo. Remember Piezo also has an open source for ink., vs. buying the expensive ink from HP Canon or Memjet.

That is some learning I have to do. Thank you for your reply
