Categories of Cartridges According to Their Composition Structure

Ⅰ. The importance of the ink cartridges

Printers have entered in our lives silently, and we are almost inseparable from printers. Among them, we all know that print cartridges are an important part of printers. Printers cannot work without them. Cartridges play a very important role in the entire inkjet printer, 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.

Ⅱ. The ink cartridges are classified according to the composition structure

1. Integrated ink cartridges: The integrated ink cartridges are to integrate the nozzle on the ink cartridge. 

When the ink is used up and a new ink cartridge is replaced, a new print head is replaced at the same time. The use of this kind of ink cartridge can achieve relatively high printing accuracy to 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 type of ink cartridge, users often refill the empty ink cartridge by themselves after they buy ink. Generally speaking, as long as the operation is correct, the filled ink will not cause much damage to the nozzle.

2. Split ink cartridges: Split ink cartridges refer to a product that separates the nozzle and ink cartridge. 

These are relatively cheap cartridges.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 opportunity of man-made damage to the toner printer; 

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 toner printer will naturally decline until the nozzle deteriorates. Most of Epson’s products are split ink cartridges. The cost of this kind of ink cartridge is lower than that of the integrated ink cartridge, but this kind of ink cartridge does not allow users to fill the ink casually.

In the process of work or study, we often need to print out some electronic version of the text and contact the printer frequently. In the work of the printer, the printer toner will become less and less. As the printer works, the printer toner will be used up. At this time, we need to refill toner in the printer. Do you know how to refill toner in the printer?

Not only can the printer return to normal more quickly, but our work will not be influenced and the efficiency of printing is improved.

What is Integrated Toner Cartridge and the Advantages of Continuous Supply Toner Cartridges

The photoconductor drum (photosensitive drum), magnetic drum (developing roller), and toner cartridge are integrated toner cartridges. In principle, this kind of toner cartridge does not allow users to add toner to the design structure. But with the update of technology, this kind of toner cartridge can also add toner. The integrated toner cartridge is mainly designed to install the toner cartridge and the photosensitive drum on the same device. When the toner is used up or the photosensitive drum is damaged, the entire toner cartridge has to be scrapped. This unique design increases the user’s printing cost and is very harmful to environmental pollution, but it brings huge profits to the manufacturer. Separate toner drums and photosensitive drums are placed on different devices, and photosensitive drums generally have a long service life, and generally can print up to 20,000 sheets. It only needs to replace the consumed toner, so that the user’s printing cost is greatly reduced.

3. When the toner cartridge is filled with powder, no toner will be spilled out, which will not cause any harm to the filling operator and the office environment.

II. How to achieve continuous powder supply?

To achieve a continuous toner supply cartridge similar to a continuous ink supply system, the key is how to effectively dispose of the waste toner.

One point is to realize that the waste powder can be automatically transferred from the waste toner bin to the powder bin.

The second point is to realize that waste powder can be automatically and effectively separated from paper scraps and other impurities.

  • Environmental protection:

On the one hand, because waste powder is automatically recycled and reused, there is basically no waste powder, which eliminates the environmental pollution caused by waste powder. On the other hand, due to the long service life, the number of new toner cartridges used is reduced, and the number of discarded old toner cartridges is also greatly reduced to be truly energy-saving and environmentally friendly.

What is the difference between the toner cartridge and the drum unit?

The toner cartridge and drum unit are different consumables. They are used in Brother equipment and require two consumables.

The ink cartridge mainly refers to the component used in the ink jet printer to store the printing ink and finally complete the printing. The internal storage is ink, which, as the name suggests, is a liquid substance. From the point of view of the composition of the ink cartridges currently on the market, in general, it can be divided into: a split type ink cartridge and an integrated ink cartridge; the toner cartridge contains powder (toner) for creating letters and images. You need to replace the toner cartridge when the toner is low or the print quality deteriorates due to toner deterioration.

A toner cartridge, also called a photosensitive drum, is generally composed of a base substrate made of aluminum and a photosensitive material coated on the substrate. In laser printers, more than 70% of the imaging components are concentrated in the toner cartridge, and the quality of the print is actually determined largely by the toner cartridge. So the toner cartridge is the most critical part of the laser printer; the drum unit transfers the toner to the paper. The laser printer places toner on the “drum”roller inside the drum unit, and then heats and presses the toner to the paper to print letters and images. In order to maintain good print quality, the Brother machine automatically detects the deterioration of the drum unit quality. If the Brother machine displays the “Replace Cartridge” error message, you will need to replace the drum unit.

The toner cartridge is used in laser printers and is printed with toner. The ink cartridges are used in ink jet printers, and the inks are used. The range of products is different. Laser printers rely on laser imaging. Ink jet printers rely on ink imaging. The imaging principle is also Not the same; the toner cartridge is powdered, and the ink cartridge is filled with ink. The ink cartridge can be used as a supply, and the toner cartridge cannot.
