This week's survey
How do you think the machinery asset value of your business compares with other trades such as electricians or plumbers?

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey
With more and more 3rd party ink suppliers coming into our market, one can only assume the market is growing for them - do you use 3rd party inks?

  • No none - scared that the original mnfrs threat of nozzle clogs and fadebility will be true
  • Once and never again!
  • I used to use them in a bulk ink system. I've gone back to Roland inks with my new machines because my new supplier has come very close to matching the original price I was paying for the oem inks. Not all 3rd party inks are good though, I'd certainly hestitate to buy too cheap. You do get what you pay for. Ink is a very small component in the overall scheme of things so to use a cheap ink that destroys heads quicker is false economy. We need a 'standard' in the industry but that will never happen so I guess it is buyer beware.... again.
  • Yes we use 3rd party inks with great success and serious savings. Obviously don't use any of the asian manufactured ink as this is just not good enough quality. Only aftermarket ink to use is UK manufactured stuff.
  • No I dont. The only time I ever tried it, my staff complained about the difficulty with colour but that was a lot of years ago.
  • Yes we do, but we chose who we bought our inks from very carefully, and only after the warranty ran out on the printer. We've had minor issues, but overall has been worth the switch.
  • YES I have used them in the past and I found them fine. The only reason there is a growing market for them is because the suppliers of the machines - MIMAKI, ROLAND etc etc all charge outragous prices for brand ink and stipulate that the machine waranties are void if you do not use there ink.....Funny how nothing happens to the machines once the waranty runs out and you switch to a 3rd party ink... The savings can be enormous. Maybe the suppliers and manufactureres need to have a good look at why alot of us change. It's not rocket science!
  • Yes we do. Much cheaper and in most cases better colour and coverage.
  • No,we do not want to risk warranty issues if we would use 3 party inks.
  • The amount of work that you get from the OEM inks I find the pricing quite economical and would not bother with 3rd party inks. However over the last few years the generic inks have improved and certainly I can understand companies using them as there are savings to be had providing they dont cause problems with substrates and machine maintenance.
  • Yes I find the original no better and My imported ink IS BETTER and a fraction of the price. The longevity has been proved by me NOT a story from a supplier.
  • They vary greatly if your supplier does not cover the heads in writing and can do maintenance to support their products the saving is not worth it.There is a growth in third party inks and it is growing daily I recieve 3 calls a day about our products we support it and we do not sell to everybody as some people will not save enough to make the change worth while.Be careful as the lure of cheaper inks is not all it seems and you will have to do extra maintenance if you do a lot of printing.Savings of 30% to 40% are available.But choose a good supplier and you will be fine.The main reason for third party ink growth is the major suppliers of equipment and service and OEM inks are over charging and are over priced and this is the only area you can cut costs as materials are competive and there is a lot of choices.
  • Yes definately but anyone thinking about doing the switch should not be guided by the cheapest. There are are really some good inks out there from reputable manufacturers. If you go for the cheap Asian inks you are heading for a disaster. If you are going to bugger up ytour warranty, then think twice.
  • No we don't even though our machine is out of warranty still a bit shy of how good it matches roland inks colour matching but cost wise even the ink part of a average job the cost saving is quite small(not much for piece of mind)
  • We have been running 3rd party inks through the bulk ink systems of our various solvent machines for some years as a way of controlling our ink costs. Using OEM inks, particularly when supplied in cartridge form, proved an overly expensive and wasteful excercise, with up to 30% of the ink remaining within the cartridges and not able to be drawn into the heads. However, a word of caution, be very careful of the claims made by 3rd parties. It took some testing before we datisfied ourselves that the inks from our currently supplier would not clog up and damage our heads. We also run a UV flatbed and will be investigating 3rd party inks for this machine also, assuming that our ink costs will substantially reduce from our current OEM supply.
  • Yes we use them if and when they are available. Our Roland and HPZ6100 both run on 3rd party Inks and we have no trouble with them. In fact the colours are brighter and better than Original Inks. If we could get 3rd party inks for our HP Scitex and Latex machines, we'd change over tomorrow! Original Inks are far too expensive!!
  • No. Too unreliable - costly if the machine is under warranty and something goes wrong. Most 3rd party suppliers do not want to know if something does go wrong and it is always your fault, never the product.
  • Yes we do and we are using 3rd party in for more than 6 years now. their inks are getting better and better everyday and cheaper as well.
  • No. Why throw away your warranty over a few dollars
