CISS(Continuous Ink Supply System), a method for delivering a large volume of liquid ink to a comparatively small inkjet print head. We all know that the original sublimation ink like Epson original ink and Mimaki original ink are very expensive, so many customers would like to choose the replacement ink. But before using the replacement ink, we usually suggest them install the CISS for their printer. Then, what is CISS? Many people don’t know the answer.


How Does CISS Work?
CISS has a number of external tanks that supply ink to the OEM ink cartridges, the number of which depends on how many cartridges a particular printer uses in standard form. At first CISS utilized ink bottles with a supply tube and an air filter. However, this design proved unable to provide a steady flow of ink and the bottles were replaced by vessels utilizing Mariotte’s Bottle principle, which provided the ability to provide a steady flow of ink to the print head regardless of the quantity of ink remaining in the vessel.

The advantages of using CISS
1. Save up to 95% on printing costs (YES, up to 20 times cheaper !) compared with ordinary ink cartridges
2. It is conveniently sold full with the ink equivalent of up to 28 sets of ordinary ink cartridges, and you will not refill it for a (very) long time
3. The printing quality is similar to that obtained from using ordinary cartridges.

One question for CISS is that not all inkjet printers can install it. If you are interested in this system, please tell us the model name of your printer, and we will help you check.
