HP provides one of the best performing, most reliable, and most cost-effective sets of thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology solutions available in today's industrial printing marketplace. Whether you want to expand the volume or improve the quality of your current print capabilities—or you want to do more with color to meet customer demands—the advantages of choosing an HP TIJ solution over other printing options are clear.

HP thermal inkjet technology (TIJ) advantages

  • Cost-effective. HP advancements in TIJ design help provide a lower-cost solution. For example, when it's time to replace a cartridge, there's no warm-up cycle or downtime. You replace only the cartridge you need—keeping your overall system productive.

  • Easy to use. HP TIJ solutions require no special training to operate and maintain your thermal inkjet printers. Cartridges are clean, and easy to install.

  • Fast. HP TIJ engineering produces high-quality printing at high speeds, with hundreds of tiny nozzles firing at a high frequency. Plus, with no moving parts other than the ink ejection, you get top speed for outstanding throughput.

  • Reliable. HP TIJ solutions provide unrivaled reliability. Overall, TIJ solutions are less sensitive to air bubbles in the firing chamber than other printing options—avoiding print quality problems and delays caused by trapped air. HP's unique ink delivery system further reduces clogging.

  • High quality. Thermal inkjet provides superb image and text quality by placing smaller drops more accurately.

  • Flexible. Since HP TIJ solutions provide unprecedented flexibility, you can use an HP system that allows you to print in black or color simply by snapping in the cartridge you need. Or you can use HP's Modular Ink Delivery System with individual ink cartridges and printheads. Either system supports a wide variety of media. And now there's HP's new Versatile Black Ink, a single cartridge for rich, sharp blacks on coated and uncoated surfaces alike. Read our technology reports and white papers to learn more.
HP TIJ solutions are also quiet, unobtrusive, and clean by design—their original design was developed for home computing . Moreover, OEMs quickly recognized the competitive advantages HP technology could offer in commercial and industrial application solutions.
