Common Printer Ink Cartridge Types

Inkjet printer ink cartridges hold liquid ink, typically black, and shades of magenta, cyan and yellow. Black is normally supplied in its own cartridge whereas colours are often combined in a single printer ink cartridge. However separate colour printer ink cartridges are available depending on your type of printer. Printer ink cartridges are actually quite complicated pieces of engineering with microchips that communicate with the printer to control flow and inform on ink reserves.

Laser toner ink cartridges contain dry ink which is printed by electrically charging particles onto your paper. Laser toner printer ink is available in both black and coloured. All colors are combined in one toner cartridge. Many office machines tend to be just mono printers as this offer the best cost savings and efficiencies. Lifespan of laser toner printer ink cartridges is directly related to the number of pages you print but tends to be much greater than that of inkjet printer ink cartridges. Laser toner cartridges contain dry ink, a photoreceptor, a waste toner bottle, and blades.

Other Printer Ink Cartridges Available

Solid printer ink toners are normally used in photocopiers but can be found in other printers as well. They work by meting the ink stick and using the meted material to print onto the page. It is claimed that this produces improved colour quality and less environmental impact due to the lower amounts of waster produced.

Dye sublimation cartridges are normally only used in textile printing. The printer ink cartridge is a film and ink is transferred to the surface contact by heat. Only one color can be printed at a time and the process repeated with different coloured films until a final image has been produced.

Traditional and Old Fashioned Printer Ink Cartridges

Daisy wheel cartridges are used in traditional typewriters. A ribbon impregnated with ink, normally black or sometime red is spun between two opposite wheels. When you strike the keys of the typewriter this forces a hammer towards the ribbon. On the hammer is the character you wish to type, it picks up the ribbon and the force of impact leaves an ink mark on the paper in the shape of the character.

Dot matrix cartridges operate in a similar way to a daisy wheel cartridge, but with ribbon run along the length of the cartridge instead. The ribbon is placed in front of the print head, as the print head moves forward it picks up the ink and the impact marks the page with the ink.
