Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) printers use standard ink cartridge systems and do not require any bottles of inks or solvent, making thermal inkjet printers clean and simple to use.
Thermal inkjet printers use a drop ejection process, storing ink in a cartridge that regulates the pressure of the fluid. Linx inks are then delivered to the firing chamber to be heated at more than 1,000,000 °C/second by an electric resistor. A 0.1 micrometer thick film of ink is heated to around 340°C, from which a bubble is formed to expel the ink. A droplet breaks away from this bubble causing it to collapse, the firing chamber then refills as the whole process repeats.
