As simple glossary of ink and toner terms.

 

In the past few years, the ink and toner industry has grown dramatically. When industry expands, so does it’s "shop speak" and all around vocabulary.  If you are in the market to buy or sell ink and toner but your research has yielded some terms you don't understand; take a look at the list below. There should be something to help you out.
 
·         Cartridge: The device that contains ink or toner
·         Empty Core: An empty ink or toner cartridge
·         Virgin Core: An empty ink or toner cartridge that has never been refilled or remanufactured.
·         OEM: Original Equipment Manufacture (This refers to any name brand cartridge manufactured under a company’s brand for the same brand of printer.)
·         Compatible: this is a cartridge that is manufactured to similar specifications as an OEM. In other words a "generic" brand cartridge.
·         Remanufactured (reman): This is when an empty core is used to completely rebuild the cartridge.
·         Print head: Part of an inkjet system that applies ink to the paper
·         Sponge: type of inkjet cartridge that contains ink in one or more sponges. Print heads are usually included on sponge type cartridges.
·         Tank: Type of inkjet cartridge that only contains ink inside a bag. The bag is punctured when placed inside the printer. Print heads are installed separately with tank type cartridges.
·         Refill: The process of replacing ink or toner in an empty cartridge. It is not necessarily the same as a remanufacture.
·         Monochrome: A printer that gives copies of only one color, usually black.
·         Ink: Liquid marking substance based on dyes or pigments.
·         Toner: A dry, powdery, magnetic marking substance.
·         Standard: Type of ink or toner cartridge that is expected to yield a normal number of pages.
·         High yield: Type of toner or ink cartridge that is expected to yield an extended number of pages.
·         Page: An 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper at 5% coverage. 

There are a few more terms, but these should be the ones you run into most often. Good luck in your research
