Inkjet printer cartridge

How an inkjet printer cartridge works . . . The real story inside an inkjet printer.

This video examines the mechanics of the inkjet printer. 

Inkjet printing is a type of computer printing that recreates a digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto paper, plastic, or other substrates. Inkjet printers are the most commonly used type of printer, and range from small inexpensive consumer models to expensive professional machines. The concept of inkjet printing originated in the 20th century, and the technology was first extensively developed in the early 1950s. Starting in the late 1970s inkjet printers that could reproduce digital images generated by computers were developed, mainly by Epson, Hewlett-Packard (HP), and Canon.

In the worldwide consumer market, four manufacturers account for the majority of inkjet printer sales: Canon, HP, Epson, and Brother. The emerging ink jet material deposition market also uses inkjet technologies, typically printheads using piezoelectric crystals, to deposit materials directly on substrates. The technology has been extended and the ″ink″ can now also comprise living cells, for creating biosensors and for tissue engineering. There are two main technologies in use in contemporary inkjet printers: continuous (CIJ) and Drop-on-demand (DOD).

Printer ink options can save money

Printer ink options can save moneyBY GREGORY KARP, a personal finance writer for The Morning Call, a Tribune Co. newspaper in Allentown, PaPublished July 2, 2006

If you think gasoline is expensive these days, imagine the price for a gallon of ink for your home inkjet printer. It could cost thousands of dollars.The price of printer ink may be the only liquid besides gasoline that infuriates consumers so much. It doesn't take long for the cost of ink-cartridge replacements to exceed the price of the printer.

So it makes sense to search for ink bargains, especially if you print many photos from your digital camera.The bad news is it's somewhat complicated. You can choose from many money-saving alternatives, and the best value is not clear-cut. But the decision is based on an age-old trade-off: price versus quality.Studies show the printer's manufacturer makes the best-quality inks. But think about what quality you need.

A child's grade-school project printed on regular copy paper doesn't need high-quality ink.Or maybe you take lots of photos of your grandchild to hang prints on the refrigerator, only to replace them a month later with newer photos. "In that case, you might want to go with an aftermarket ink because you'll be chewing through the cartridges," said Charles Brewer, managing editor of The Hard Copy Supplies Journal, a publication by imaging industry market-research firm Lyra Research.If you're worried about a printed photo fading after a few years, ask yourself whether that's a big deal. After all, if it fades, you could print it again from your computer.

Top 10 Tips for Purchasing a New Color Printer

Top 10 Tips for Purchasing a New Color Printer: "Don't ignore the cost of consumables! This will be your greatest expense over time. Try and determine what your actual print cost per page will be. Don't rely only on manufactures data. They all will have you believe they are the fastest and least expensive to use. Their claims of 20 pages per minute really turn out to be four when you use it in a real world setting. Claims of 15 cents per page are based on 5% page coverage with spot color. You results may be closer to $1.00 per page. If you are looking at Inkjet find one that has individual tanks for each color. This might add up to a savings. Canon and Epson both have this capability. "

Making Images Last a Lifetime

Making Images Last a Lifetime: "Alison Nordstrom, curator of photographs at George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, N.Y., warns, 'Digital hard copies printed from an inkjet printer have greater stability in maintaining colors and lasting images, but if they get even slightly wet the ink will create lovely colored water.' Your only strategy is to make sure water never comes in contact with your digital prints."

Inkjet Printers - background Info

Although inkjets were available in the 1980s, it was only in the 1990s that prices dropped enough to bring the technology to the high street. Canon claims to have invented what it terms 'bubble jet' technology in 1977, when a researcher accidentally touched an ink-filled syringe with a hot soldering iron. The heat forced a drop of ink out of the needle and so began the development of a new printing method.

Inkjet printers have made rapid technological advances in recent years. The three-color printer has been around for several years now and has succeeded in making color inkjet printing an affordable option; but as the superior four-color model became cheaper to produce, the swappable cartridge model was gradually phased out.

Inkjets have one massive attraction over laser printers; they produce color, and that is what makes them so popular with home users. The down side is that although inkjets are generally cheaper to buy than lasers, they are more expensive to maintain. Cartridges need to be changed more frequently and the special coated paper required to produce high-quality output is very expensive.

When it comes to comparing the cost per page, inkjets work out about ten times more expensive than laser printers.

Since the invention of the inkjet, color printing has become immensely popular. Research in inkjet technology is making continual advances.
