The Inside of Compatible Inkjet CartridgesAugust 10, 2010 1 Comment
If you have an inkjet printer and you are supplying it with compatible inkjet cartridges, you may have already felt why the original inks are so expensive when the compatible ones are less costly with the same printing quality.
If you are even that curious, you may have also reached that point wherein you are wondering what is found inside a compatible inkjet cartridge. Let’s take a quick trip to know what keeps this product functioning just like the original inks.
An inkjet cartridge is basically made of a printer cartridge and ink, of course. Creating this product can vary depending on the store where you are buying it. Examples of ink cartridge manufacturing are refilling, recycling, and creating compatible or original inkjet cartridges.
An important part would be the print head which functions as the brain of the cartridge. It is the engine of the printer which protects the nozzle assemblies. A nozzle assembly has different parts too which include a tiny ink chamber, a resistor to control the ink’s flow, wall for the direction of the ink, and a nozzle plate wherein the ink comes out to reach the paper.
Since the print head is very important for the printer and the inkjet cartridge, you have to make sure that you print properly and you avoid damaging this. One way to protect this part is to avoid printing when the inkjet cartridge is already empty. A problem that can happen if you insist printing is to cause the process of print head burnout which can create poor printing quality or even damage your printer in some cases.
Your printer is a very important partner for your computer when you are doing documents and images. However, do not forget that a compatible inkjet cartridge is also vital to keep your printer in good performance all the time.
