Canon Ink Cartridges
Canon Printer Series
Canon is of course a giant Japanese company, employing over 190,000 people worldwide, and with an annual turnover in excess of $35 billion. Inkjet printers work by firing tiny droplets of heated ink through nozzles: Canon have called their technology Bubble Jet from the beginning – a system which both Canon and HP claim to have invented. While the two companies have worked closely together in laser printer technology – and still do – they are competitors in the inkjet printer market.
The first inkjet printer was demonstrated around 1981, and Canon introduced the BJ-80 commercially in 1985. The BJC and Pixma ranges have been the ink cartridge printers of choice for millions of offices and homes for years now.
The process is better but essentially the same, and works at very high speeds. Some printers eject over 20,000 drops of ink per second, using multiple nozzles in a combined ink head in narrow bands of colour drawn from black or colour ink cartridges. Modern ink droplets have a smaller diameter than a human hair!
Manufacturers traditionally sell printers cheap (especially when clearing stock before launching a new range), and make their profits on ink cartridges . Compatibles or remanufactured cartridges are direct replacements for originals, and of course are cheap in comparison. Our Canon ink cartridge compatibles can offer a huge money saving.
