HP Bulk Black Ink Supply
The HP C6119A Bulk
Black Ink Supply produces
superior print quality with
minimal intervention
and cost.
HP designed this bulk ink delivery system for high-volume
applications that require high-quality results at low cost
per print, and infrequent ink supply intervention.
HP's Bulk Black Ink Supply brings convenience and
high-quality printing to industrial markets that need a
high-volume ink delivery system.
This system consists of a print cartridge and water-resistant
black ink supply connected by a tube. It is designed to
print 600 dots per inch in applications where high-quality
output on porous media is required.
• The large ink supply and easy replacement reduces
downtime, so print volume is increased.
Non-contact, drop-on-demand inkjet technology ensures
reliable, quiet printing. Integrated Driver Head (IDH)
technology coordinates individual nozzles through a
multiplexing scheme that fires all 300 nozzles through
52 interconnect pads.
The print cartridge can be snapped in and out for easy
replacement, while the high-capacity bulk ink delivery
system makes sure replacements are infrequent. The print
cartridge has a thermal sense resistor, which measures
temperature, and enables thermal management and
burnout protection for the print head.
• Low cost per print helps reduce production overhead.
• Water-resistant ink prevents bleeding and streaking on a
variety of print media.

Frequently asked questions
Who are the ideal users of
the C6119A?
Companies that produce larger print runs and have a need for a higher-volume ink delivery system.
What are the key
advantages of this bulk ink
• Provides high-quality output on porous media.
• Low cost per print helps reduce production overhead.
• Large ink supply and easy replacement reduces downtime so print volume is increased. The bulk system provides
about nine times more ink volume (370 ccs) than the usual 40 ccs print cartridge.
• Water-resistant ink prevents bleeding and streaking.
What are the general
media recommendations?
This water-resistant plain paper ink works best on bond and many copy papers, envelopes, and kraft papers.
What are the advantages
of HP Thermal Inkjet (TIJ)
• Cost-effective. Requires no warm-up cycle and no downtime. When it's time to replace a print cartridge, replace only
the one that's needed.
• Easy to use. No special training is required to operate and maintain thermal inkjet printers. The print cartridge
design allows it to be snapped in and out for easy replacement.
• Fast. Hundreds of tiny nozzles firing at a high frequency allow high-quality printing at high speeds.
• Reliable. TIJ is less sensitive to air bubbles in the firing chamber than other printing technologies, avoiding print
quality problems and delays caused by trapped air.
• Flexible. Supports a wide variety of media.
• High quality. TIJ places smaller drops more accurately, producing consistently superb image and text quality.
• Environmentally safe. With thermal inkjet, there is no need for service technicians qualified to handle volatile
solvents, and no noxious fumes.
• Lower cost of ownership. A thermal inkjet printer can cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars less than other
printing equipment, reducing the market entry cost.
