In our lives, printers have been deeply embedded in our lives, and we are almost inseparable from printers. Among them, we all know that print cartridges are an important part of the printer. The printer cannot work without the print cartridges. The entire inkjet printer has a very important position, especially some low-end printers, which have reached the price of two boxes of ink equal to one printer. Therefore, when buying a printer, you must consider the ink cartridges.
1. Integrated ink cartridge
Integrated ink cartridges will integrate the nozzles on print cartridges. When the ink is used up and a new ink cartridge is replaced, it means that a new print head is replaced at the same time. The use of this kind of ink cartridge can achieve relatively high printing accuracy, and can ensure the printing quality. Since the nozzle is replaced with the ink cartridge, the print quality will not be reduced due to the wear of the inkjet head. However, this ink cartridge design structure increases the cost, and the price of such ink cartridges is relatively high.
HP and Lexmark products mostly use this kind of ink cartridges. However, at present, in order to save printing costs, for this kind of ink cartridges, after the ink cartridges are used up, users often inject ink into the empty ink cartridges by themselves. Generally speaking, as long as the operation is correct, the filled ink will not cause much damage to the nozzles.
2. Spilt ink cartridge
Spilt ink cartridge refers to a product that separates the nozzle and ink cartridge design. The starting point of this structural design is mainly to reduce printing costs, because this kind of ink cartridge is not integrated on the print nozzle, the print nozzle can continue to be used when the ink cartridge is invalid, and it also simplifies the user’s process of disassembly and assembly of the ink cartridge and reduces the number of errors.
The printer may have man-made damage; but this ink cartridge structure also has obvious defects, that is, the nozzle will not be updated in time. As the working time of the printer increases, the quality of the printer will naturally decline until the nozzle deteriorates. Most of Epson’s products are split ink cartridges. In terms of cost, this kind of ink cartridge is lower than the integrated ink cartridge, but this kind of ink cartridge does not allow users to fill the ink casually.
