What are ink cartridges?

Printer cartridges with and without a print head

In the case of cartridges with a print head, on the other hand, the entire ink cartridge including the print head electronics is changed.

The generation of intelligent ink cartridges

Market-leading manufacturers such as HP or Canon are now equipping their ink cartridges with an electronic chip.

This has the advantage for the user that he can react in good time in order not to lose a lot of time during a printing process. Accordingly, the replacement cartridge is usually already available for a quick exchange, so that work can be continued as soon as possible. And according to the motto: "time is money"This scenario can generate costs. The new generation of printers always informs you about the current fill level. A very helpful technique.
