How to choose? | Everything you need to know about toner cartridges & ink cartridges

What are toner cartridges and ink cartridges?

Ink cartridges are used in inkjet printers. Inkjet printing is to spray the ink onto the paper through millions of tiny print head nozzles. Although the nozzles spray small ink dots each time, the speed of a single jet is quite fast, and the image and text are gathered by countless small ink dots.

The toner cartridge is also called the photosensitive drum. 70% of the key technologies in the entire printing process are on the toner cartridge. It is the most critical and important part of a laser printer. Its quality is directly proportional to the printing quality of the document and the printing cost.

Adv. and Dadv. of toner cartridges and ink cartridges:

Inkjet printing is currently the lowest-cost technology on the page cost, especially for continuous supply products. The cost of printing a black and white single-page document will not exceed 2 cents. The writing of inkjet-printed documents is limited by the type of ink. Pigment ink is more durable, and dye ink products are not suitable for long-term storage. The biggest problem with ink cartridges is that the printing speed is not fast and unstable enough, which is depending on the area of the printed document content on the paper.

Laser printing focuses on commercial document printing. The printing is clear and the speed is stable. The output speed will not be affected by the printing content. Documents with laser printing are able to keep for a long time. In the past year, printing companies have launched products with economical consumables, and the cost of laser printing can reach less than 1 dime. Laser printing can print quicker, write clearer, and last longer, made it the best choice for companies.

At present, toner cartridges can be divided into three types according to different photosensitive materials: OPC drums (organic materials), toner cartridges (Selenium), and ceramic drums (a-si ceramics). OPC drums have the lowest prices and are currently the most popular in the market.
