How does Ink Jet Printing Work?

InkjetprinterThere are many different types of ink jet printers on the market today. What is common to them is that technology that drives them can be broken down into several categories.

Ink jet printers use a technology called Non-Impact Print.

This technology does not touch the paper when creating an image and instead uses a series of nozzles to spray drops of ink directly onto the paper.

Different types of inkjet printers form their droplets of ink to deposit in several different ways. The most popular of these methods is a technique called bubble jet.

With a bubble jet printer, tiny resistors create heat, and this heat vaporizes ink to create a bubble on the head of the print head. The expansion that creates the bubble causes a droplet to form and then ejects if from the print head onto the paper.

A typical bubble jet print head has 64 or 128 tiny nozzles, and all of them can fire a droplet simultaneously.

You can achieve some real high quality printing on ink jet printable media. With the advancements in bubble jet technology, some of the printers will produce picture quality images on to the face of a CD or DVD.

It is important that correct media is used when printing with an ink jet printer. If the wrong media is used, the image will smear and the ink will not bond to the surface of the disc.
