New INX Digital Triangle inks offer HP 5000 and 5500 users substantial cost savings
Article Type: Industry news From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 3
New Triangle aqueous inks from INX Digital International Co. for HP 5000 and 5500 series printers are now available throughout North America. The T81 dye inks and T83 UV pigmented inks are chemically compatible with OEM options and can extend printhead life up to twice as long compared to other non-OEM alternatives. They are in stock and available from Fellers.
“These new inks are color compatible with OEM options,” said INX Digital Americas President Ken Kisner. “They can be run using existing HP OEM ink profiles and no additional work is needed. Users can easily save 20 percent or more on our T81 and T83 inks compared to OEM.”
Karla aftermarket products, said chip Witte, INX Digital Marketing Director – technology for the cartridges is developed and manufactured in the USA. In addition to, being 100 percent color compatible, the T81 and T83 inks also are chemically compatible with OEM options and will help extend the life cycle of printheads.
“The new inks come in 680 ml remanufactured direct replacement cartridges for the HP81 dye and HP83 pigmented inks,” Ms Witte said. “Users can add new colors as needed, one by one, without having to flush lines or throw away unused ink. These new colors can be run simultaneously with HP’s printers.”
Witte said HP 5000 and 5500 users can count on comparable-to-OEM printhead life with the T81 and T83 inks and up to double the life when compared to other non-OEM options. She noted the new inks not only match, but also exceed OEM print quality in some cases.
“The T81, for example, has a very jet black and provides truer blacks and grays. Unlike many other OEM-alternative offerings, the new Triangle formulations are micro-porous approved. They dry instantly and work well on micro-porous materials,” Ms Witte said.
“Saving 20 percent or more while running our color compatible alternative inks will give HP 5000 and 5500 users a timely advantage,” concluded Mr Kisner. “We anticipate introducing more advanced options, such as ink sets designed for the HP Z6100, sometime later this year.”
