An InkLink™continuous ink supply system (CISS™) is used instead of standard inkjet cartridges. Simply explained the InkLink™ is a self contained unit with its own cartridges fed by tubing from a large ink reservoir which sits beside your printer. The system acts like a giant cartridge by feeding ink to the printer when required and can save up to 95% over the cost of using cartridges.

Questions and Answers
What is an InkLink CISS Ink System and how does it work? The InkLink continuous ink supply system, also known as a CISS, can provide significant cost saving to home inkjet printing. Quite simply it provides a continuous supply of ink to the printer. The system is complete with its' own cartridges and pre-filled ink reservoirs. Our custom cartridge draws the required amount of ink from the reservoirs as needed. Once you use the 100mls of ink in the reservoirs, you simply refill it over and over again using our refill ink
How much will I save by using an InkLink CISS ? That depends how much you print. Obviously, the more you print the more you will be saving. Consider it this way, in our smallest set of replacement inks (100ml of each colour), there is approximately 10 times more ink than a single set of cartridges. Now add the dollars to the equation and you get 9 times more ink for the cost of one set of OEM cartridges. Overall there is around a 95% saving on the cost of buying cartridges.
How do your inks compare to Epson, Canon, HP and Brother? We use high grade UV dye inks manufactured from USA, United Kingdom and Japan. These inks are manufactured under contract for us according to our requirements and specifications. These ARE NOT GENERIC INKS. The print quality of our Inklink CISS are just as good as using inkjet cartridges. Our ink is micro filtered to 0.2 um to ensure stable and fluent printing and prevent head blockages (print heads in Epson approximately 9um). Our premium inks have high end UV absorber components which prolong ink life and durability. This¬†means that printed pictures do not fade at the same rate as standard generic inks. Cheap inks tend to use chemical carrier fluids which damage your printer and use excessive alcohol carrier fluids. Generally these inks are not filtered correctly which causes physical blockages to your print heads which can lead to overheating and permanent print head damage. Using top grade raw materials Cabots in the USA and Diamond in the United Kingdom ensures a wide colour gamut and vivid output. We have invested a great deal of development and money to ensure our quality of InkLink CISS units and inks is as high as possible. This is our sole business and we not only specialize in CISS units we invented them. Since our inception then we have had our products copied and cloned particularly out of Asia. With over a decade of product development, 4 patents, Australian engineering and ongoing and continual product development rihac are regarded as the worlds best external ink supply systems. We do not supply or build inferior CISS units or inks. We have trialled them and we have found that these poor quality copies and clones tend to contain very poor quality ink that ultimately leads to damaged print heads.
Are all Ink Systems the Same?
Absolutely not. There is a great deal of difference between the Inklink and other CISS units available¬†in the market place. Some are simply imported copies of the InkLink using low grade inks and components. These tend to be unrelaible and require high maintenance as well as not being condusive to long term use . In our testing we found that units (particularly those imported from Asia) had a tendency to contain ink that has a high alcohol base. This leads to tube blockages and can cause damage to the print heads. The cartridge design on other units tend only to have a single head seal or rubber style seal which leak over time. We have developed our cartridges to ensure ink flow is even and consistent. We also use a high gauge silicone tubing rather than traditional PVC tubing, which restricts ink flow in colder weather. This results in poorer quality imaging. Our cartridges contain micro filters (x2 strictly 1~2 um) which are designed to prevent any impurities from reaching the print head (generally 9um). Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. Basically you get what you pay for.
It has also come to our attention from our customers that a few sellers are listing very misleading information about their systems as well as openly distributing our intellectual property purporting them to be their own particularly on Ebay. Our R&D team spend considerable time ensuring the InkLink CISS systems you purchase from Rihac have been fully tested and we prepare instruction manuals to ensure trouble free fitting and problem solving. We encourage competition however we are finding more and more sellers simply duplicating our information which does not relate to their respective products. If you happen to be sent copies of our manual or believe information you have received is misleading or fraudulent we encourage you to contact rihac to prevent this type of activity.
