Cheaper than LASER PRINTERS, these machines use a printhead which sprays ink onto paper. For personal home use, they are a more than satisfactory alternative to expensive laser printers.
A printer that forms an image by using electromagnetic fields to guide electrically charged ink streams onto the page.
Popular in homes, inkjet printers use small, liquid-filled ink cartridges.
A type of printer that sprays heated ink onto paper. An inkjet printer is less expensive to purchase than a laser printer, but the cost of consumables (ink cartridges) makes it more expensive to operate.
A type of computer printer that splashes tiny jets of ink onto paper to form an image or character. (See Office Equipment.)
A nonimpact printer that forms an image by spraying ink from a matrix of tiny jets.
A printer that utilises ink droplets to transfer text or graphics onto paper. - (Hardware)
A printer that sprays tiny droplets of ink through nozzles to produce an image on paper. Todayâ€™s inkjet printers can produce high quality colour prints that are virtually indistinguishable from traditional photographs. (However, Inkjet prints are more likely to fade over time and also may smudge if handled improperly and are fairly expensive per print.) The size of ink droplets is expressed in picolitres and, the smaller the droplet, the finer the image. SEE ALSO PHOTO PRINTER.
A type of printer that sprays dots of ink onto paper to create an image. Inkjet printers are normally inexpensive. Better-quality inkjet printers can attain near photo quality output.
a computer peripheral that produces hard copy by spraying ink onto paper
A light, quiet and relatively cheap printer that produces pages by squirting a stream of tiny drops of electrically charged ink at the surface of the paper.
A type of printer that sprays tiny streams of quick-drying ink onto a substrate.
Printers that use water-based inks in cartridges, forced out by bubbles within the cartridge. Inkjet printers are inexpensive, portable, easy-to-use. To ensure optimal quality CMW recommends using OEM inks.
A personal printer in which ink jets are supplied by replaceable ink cartridges. Such printers are popular because of their low initial cost, but running costs are high, unless you have an Epson printer and a source of very cheap 'alternative' replacement cartridges. See also: Laser printer.
An inkjet printer passes ink cartages over the page dropping the ink onto the page. Though slower than laser printers, they are cheaper and the vast majority can print color.
can be used to print photo-quality prints
a cheap non-impact printer which creates text and graphics by squirting drops of ink at the paper, typically on a 300 dpi matrix. Results are almost as good as a cheap laser printer's, though the ink may fade in sunlight and may run if it gets wet.
Drops of ink at the paper, typically on a 300 dpi matrix. Results are almost as good as a cheap laser printer's, though the ink tends to spread a litde, and will run if it gets wet.
A printer or an all-in-one unit that shoots fast drying ink through tiny nozzles onto a page to form characters. The inkjet is currently the standard for personal computer printing.
A printing system that sprays fine droplets of CMYK ink through very small nozzles to form dot on papers. The "Photo Inkjet Printers" also use the fine nozzles to spray 6 colors of CMY and pastel versions of CMY to create dot on paper.
An inexpensive printer that uses finely directed sprays of cyan, magenta, yellow, and (usually) black ink to produce the text and images. Color printout is achieved in one pass. Inkjet printers support many different media sizes and output resolutions.
a type of printer that sprays ink on paper.
The next generation of dot matrix printers. It uses a head that sprays tiny droplets of ink onto print material. There are three major benefits to this...
a printer in which the characters are formed by minute jets of ink.
output: A type of printer whose print head squirts droplets of ink through tiny nozzles onto plain paper. This amazing technology made the ImageWriter nearly obsolete, and made very low cost 300 dpi printing available to most users. One problem: the ink can smear, even after it's dry (if it gets wet).

A printer that sprays liquid ink on the paper.
A printer that uses a process where a stream of liquid ink droplets is shot onto the paper.
Inkjet printers have become the standard for producing color documents, brochures, and photographic reproduction. While there are many patented inkjet technologies, all inkjet printers operate by squeezing heated ink through a syringe-like needle onto the paper. They can carry a high maintenance cost in offices with high printing demands or in a shared environment. The cartridges tend to need replacing far quicker than with laser printers, but this may not be a problem in an office with lower printing needs or when used on a stand-alone machine. For small offices and single users, inkjet printers provide high quality printing at an affordable price. Source: TechSoup.org
A non-impact printer that fires tiny drops of ink at the paper.
This uses a head that sprays tiny droplets of ink onto the print material, e.g. paper. It produces high quality printing, but can be slow to print.
Type of printer that sprays ultra-fine dots of ink onto paper. Popularly used to print photographs, inkjet printers can produce high-quality results Interpolation: Software programs can enlarge image resolution beyond the actual resolution by adding extra pixels using complex mathematic calculations. A form of 'digital trickery' that is used to increase image resolution by averaging out the values of adjacent pixels and adding extra ones between them. Interpolated resolution figures should be treated with caution. Also see "Resolution".
Printer that prints hard copies by spraying ink from a matrix of tiny jets. WWWebfx Home Page
Device that drops liquid ink onto a substrate for printing. A thermal inkjet heats ink to approximately 400 degrees F inside a small chamber before shooting it through a series of nozzles. A piezo-based inkjet stores ink in a small chamber an sends and electric charge through piezoelectric crystal lining the chamber to shoot ink through the nozzles.
a medium quality printer that uses an ink cartridge to produce an image
This type of printer uses a printhead which has a series of little holes called nozzles. In each nozzle, the ink heats up, and bubbles. When the bubbles burst, ink sprays out onto the print surface.
When you hear "inkjet printer", you may think of the printer used with a personal computer. Although the method of printing by spraying an ink jet is the same, industrial inkjet printers use different inks in different applications in order to print characters directly on various industrial products during production.
A type of printer that sprays jets of heated ink onto paper.
A type of printer that sprays tiny streams of quick-drying ink onto the paper.
You can use inkjet printers to print digital photographs at home. They work by spraying special paper with tiny droplets of ink which blend together when viewed from a distance. The best inkjet printers use a five colour ink cartridge.
A printer that produces text and images by spraying jets of quick-drying ink onto the paper.
Inkjet printers are a type of computer printer that operates by propelling tiny droplets of liquid ink onto paper. They are the most common type of computer printer for the general consumer due to their low cost, high quality of output, capability of printing in vivid color, and ease of use.
