The concept of inkjet printing originated in the 19th century. The technology was first extensively developed in the early 1950s. Starting in the late 1970s inkjet printers that could reproduce digital images generated by computers were developed, mainly by Epson, Hewlett-Packard (HP), and Canon. These OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers) still account for the majority of inkjet printer sales worldwide.
Inkjet printers may look like little plastic boxes with some electronics crammed inside, but they are actually very sophisticated pieces of hardware. Witness the print head zipping back and forth while spraying drops of ink the size of a red blood cell and hitting the mark with that drop thousands of times a second. Get the idea? To ensure consistent print quality, paper feed and longer print life, your printer needs to be looked after and maintained.
