A print damper sits above each of the heads on a printer. whilst the head is docked the damper fills with ink. as the head begins printing and moving from side to side, it is fed ink by the damper sitting above it. as the damper empties, the head returns to its docking position for a refill. dampers also act as a sort of last filter of the ink before it enters the head.

dampers cost around £20 each and can be fitted pretty easily by a steady, careful hand. cheap dampers can deteriorate quickly if used in solvent machines.

can you better this wiki entry?  If so, juct click edit and then save.
