How It Works

No single machine can effectively pre-test, clean, and refill the vast variety of cartridges. At Ink to Go, each step in the process of refilling our printer cartridges has its own specialized equipment. With high-tech machines and environment-controlled facilities, our skilled technicians are able to produce the finest quality prints, consistently proving that Ink to Go is Better.

Ink to Go cartridges must first pass a visual inspection for damage and compromised print heads, after which they are put through a pre-test machine designed for electrical circuit testing.

After the initial inspection, the cartridge is cleaned using a unique, atomized, heated water jet system, which penetrates the cartridge nozzle plate, thoroughly cleansing and unclogging all components.

A microprocessor controlled flushing unit cleans out old ink and reconditions sponges with distilled water (Ink To Go has its own internal water system) and an appropriate cleaning solution. A centrifuging machine spins out any excess water.

No matter how thorough the centrifuging or flushing machine may be, water may possibly remain in the foam core of a cartridge. Ink to Go uses a state-of-the-art, heated, forced air system to thoroughly dry the sponge in its cartridges and to ensure that no remaining water can contaminate the ink.

Once the cartridge is cleaned and dried, it is ready for refilling. Ink to Go uses a vacuum-filling process to ensure that the ink is evenly distributed and saturated throughout the entire sponge. The sponge of a cartridge absorbs more ink in a vacuum, thus Ink to Go is able to fill its cartridges to maximum capacity.

Ink to Go's meticulous process ends with a print-test to assure the highest quality, a proper cleaning of the print head which is essential to proper sealing, and lastly, taping the nozzle. Our semi-automatic sealing device provides extra protection to prevent leaking.
