Ninestar reflects on 22 years in ink

May 3, 2022

Established in 2000, Ninestar is a service provider focusing on consumables and printers in the imaging sector.

Right from day one, Ninestar established its ink factory to research, develop, test and produce ink products for end-users.

With its development and wide adoption across many applications, inkjet and digital ink technologies have made a significant impact upon traditional printing, more than 25% in European and US markets.

Tracking the trends of the core inkjet technology:  

  • Resolution: 300dpi——600dpi——1200dpi——1440dpi
  • The size of ink drop: 10pl——5pl——2pl——1pl
  • Print speed: 5ppm——24ppm——50ppm——75ppm ——100ppm
  • Types of inks: dye, pigment, UV, eco solvent, sublimation, textile pigment …
  • Applications: office, education, health, medicine, food, advertising, textiles, packaging, labels, leather, printing …
  • Professional requirements: UV and ozone resistance, security, waterproofing, anti-scratching …

Due to the increase of new applications, the demands on ink are becoming more intense and competitive with tougher standards being required in different applications, such as surface tension, PH levels, conductivity and colour gamut, among others. 

Ninestar explains it is aware of the trends, the demands, and advances in inkjet printing technology. So it continues to strengthen its cooperation with other leading raw materials and technology companies.

Ninestar’s technical milestones for the development of ink

  • In 2003, Ninestar took the lead in cooperating with a leading chemical company, Cabot Chemical.
  • In 2007, Ninestar worked with Dalian University of Technology, propelling IUR cooperation.
  • In 2008, Ninestar became the first company to establish the National Fine Chemical Lab, and Ninestar was awarded with national high-tech enterprise.
  • In 2011, Ninestar began to utilize the colorant purifying technique, to make the ion in the ink declined from 10% to 2%, improving the lifetime of print head.
  • In 2014, Ninestar used advanced grinding technology, to make the size of the particle decreased from 500nm to 200nm, significantly enhancing the printing quality of ink.
  • In 2019, Ninestar brought in automated production lines as a pioneer, which greatly improved the stability and consistency of its ink.

Ninestar has rolled out pigment ink, EVERBRITE, and dye ink, GLORIA. Both ink brands deliver OEM-equivalent performance at a more affordable cost than the OEM. Ninestar added that its ink matches various printers, which ensures the print head has enough moisture, proper PH level and conductivity to achieve perfect compatibility.

With the development of printing technology and the increasing needs of the market, Ninestar said it will continue to make every effort to research and develop different ink products to meet the diversified and growing demands of users.
