Printer cartridges hold ink or toner and apply them to the printing material. They are installed on a panel in computer printers, where they move in a lateral position over the paper. They are usually provided with the printer package initially, and replaced after being fully serviced. Many cartridges are refillable and often reused and resold.
Types of Printer Cartridges
Kinds of Printer Cartridges include the following:
Printer ink cartridges
Printer ink cartridges are primarily used in inkjet printers. They spray tiny drops of liquid ink onto the paper. They tend to be messy as the ink can drip when the cartridges are not securely fitted on their slots. Some models can be refilled with ink when they have been used up.
Printer toner cartridges
Printer toner cartridges are designed for laser printers. They contain black or colored powder consisting of fine charged particles. They provide more lasting impressions on paper than ink cartridges. They are sealed tightly to prevent dripping and staining.
Printer ribbons are primarily used in dot matrix printers. They are fitted with ribbons coated with dye or resin, which is pressed onto the paper. They are usually available in black.
