Thermal ink-jet technology involves applying heat to a tiny measure of ink until it expands and forms a bubble. As the bubble continues to expand and burst, it is propelled through one of the nozzles on the ink cartridge. This process is repeated up to 8,000 times per second.
The monochrome ink cartridge on the Color StyleWriter 6500 contains 300 black nozzles. The color cartridge contains 64 nozzles of each color (cyan, magenta, and yellow).
