Inkjet Printers

From sophisticated studies of graphic design and printing of newspapers to home offices and shops of all kinds, almost nonexistent a workplace that does not have or need a printed inkjet. The high quality of its performance and ease of use have enabled inkjet printers to return to be protagonists, used by millions of users for uses as diverse as print notes, invoices, sketches of publication and portfolios. Manufactured for the first time in the early 1980s at a predictably high price, it was not until the 1990s that the price of inkjet printers was within the reach of most consumers. Before the arrival of inkjet printers, the most advanced office printer was the matrix point. This type of printers, laserjet printers quality light years, were also noisy, slow and depended on a particular type of role. Conversely, inkjet printers provided the user greater flexibility in the choice of paper and introduced color printing to the general public.

But how inkjet printers work? It is said that the method was discovered by mistake, when a researcher accidentally touched an ink-filled syringe with a hot welding machine, causing a drop of ink to jump from the tip of the syringe. Basically, it’s a printing system without contact with the paper by which the cartridge nozzles launched drops of ink jets on paper to create the image or the text line. As all printers (up to writing machines) a lined head runs through the page horizontally and is powered by a small motor that pushes it to the right and to the left of the page. Once a strip of ink has been printed, the rotating mechanism of the printer pushes the paper slightly upward, so the next strip can be printed. Not long after the ink inkjet printer was invented, was quickly adapted to make printed a vertical strip and a horizontal in the same pass, which reduced printing by half time.

When we consider that the inkjet printer more home you only need half a second to print a line (approximately 2,500 drops of ink), it means that each nozzle reacts to a 1/5000 second average response time, which is surprisingly fast. Of course, while printer is more advanced, more increases your printing speed. As ink must be distributed with great precision, the ink cartridge nozzles are as thin as a hair, and in early models, it was usual that they obstruyeran with ink. But this inconvenience led to improving the quality of the ink. A defective nozzle or a printer driver that does not calculate accurately the amount of ink flowing from each nipple will cause an excess of ink, forming patches. Another similar problem who owned the first inkjet printers was that ink documents newly printed ran if not let dry for a few seconds, but this difficulty led also to improve the quality of the ink. For the user, these advances meant more technology for less money. Despite predictions that the offices of the future prescindirian completely in the role, the rapid advance of technology made it possible to ink printers remain today as useful as 20 years ago.
