Thermal Ink Jet- Industrial Printers

Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers can produce a high quality, high resolution finished print. The “thermal” in the thermal inkjet means the ink is released from the nozzle using a heating element. Once the ink is heated it forms a bubble that pushes the ink out through a series of nozzles onto the item being printed.

One advantage of the TIJ is that the ink is securely contained in the cartridge. This eliminates the possibility of the cartridge leaking as it has no pumps or moving parts Also, because the ink and print head are housed in the same cartridge the entire ink delivery system and print head are brand new every time the cartridge is changed thereby reducing costly ongoing system maintenance except for an occasional simple cleaning of the print head.
