    A printhead is the element which puts the ink to the page to form the text or image being printed. ... Thermal technology uses silicon wafer heating elements to rapidly superheat and vaporize a small volume of ink. The vaporized ink expands, which in turn forces tiny droplets through the nozzle on the printhead.

    The ink tank feeds its liquid ink down to the separate printhead inside the printer which in turn dispenses the ink in the form of droplets onto the page to form text or images. Sometimes, the ink tank sits directly on top of and directly feeds into the printhead, such as with Epson and Canon Printers.
