Great news! We now offer most of our printer models with polyethylene plastic tubing. Our Epson Workforce 30/7010/7510/7520 with the internally installed ink system and the Epson Artisan 1430 Workforce 7010/7510/7520 CIS Kits, regardless of the ink type, are produced using polyethylene tubing. We have done a lot testing over the past few years and have concluded that PVC tubing causes pigment ink to plug the tubes and causes dye ink to thicken in the tube over time. PVC tubing is what everybody uses for their CIS systems except for COBRA INK SYSTEMS and Epson. Polyethylene tubing resists dehydration of the ink in the tube. This tubing also works well for solvent-based ink. We have it available in bulk sold by the foot. Unfortunately, this tubing costs us 5 ½ times as much as PVC tubing. We expect to have all of our systems changed to polyethylene tubing by the end of the year.

Cobra Ink System's was started in 1999, the very first ink system was made to fit an Epson Stylus Color 600. We were printing vanity plates for cars in Tennessee which did not have a front license plate “tags” as we called them. At that time, all the colors were made in one cartridge. We received a large order for tags which had a solid red background, after printing just a few we needed a new cartridge.

We decided to try refilling the cartridge using a syringe and needle as well as using ink we purchased from a large distributor. The cartridges had a sponge inside that made refilling a nightmare; by the time you were able to get it to print it was out of ink again. We also had concerns about the print fading in the sun light. We talked to our ink supplier about using ultra violet resistant inks. We inquired about an ink supply system; and “He stated he had seen it all and nothing worked”. We asked him if we created one could he sell it. “He replied, I think I could sell 150 units per day if they worked”. Our engineers developed a system that worked great and sent 6 units to their warehouse.

The rest is history and we have been producing quality CIS every since!
