When referring to a non-impact printer such as an inkjet printer, a nozzle is a hole smaller than a human hair found on the print head of a print cartridge. Each nozzle produces millions of ink droplets used in creating the images and text generated by the printer.


All inkjet printers include either a software program or button sequence that can be used to fix clogged nozzles.
