Remanufacturing IndustryMarch 27, 2009 No Comments
Remanufacturing a toner cartridge is basically reusing and refilling ink and toner printer cartridges so they can be used again. These used cartridges are collected from individuals and businesses,. They are then sorted by remanufacturers such as TonerBoss.com. The cartridges are then disassembled and cleaned, and replace or fix any necessary parts. High-grade chemical toner or is added, and we then test the cartridge for quality control and are packaged for distribution.
Remanufactured cartridges are made to give excellent printing results. We at Tonerboss.com are dedicated to make the best quality remanufactured toners there can be. Our remanufactured toner cartridges such as the HP toner cartridge, are expected to perform like OEM cartridges or even surpass their quality.
Remanufactured and compatible cartridges provide consumers an alternative to the often high-priced original equipment manufacturer (OEM) cartridges.
Due to the rising need for printing, many consumers prefer remanufactured cartridges. Aside from its lower cost, it is also an environment-friendly alternative since the cartridge is reused and it doesn’t have to go to the landfills.
But because of this threat to their market, many printer manufacturers seek to limit remanufacturing, using technological and logistical barriers.
An example would be Lexmark, having its Prebate program. Here, they require their customers to send their cartridges back to Lexmark, rather than allowing the user to have the cartridge remanufactured by a third party. These kinds of moves are used to monopolize the market of toner cartridges. With this, they control the stream of empty cartridges, making it very difficult to remanufacture cartridges.
Chips are a common preventive measures used by most manufacturers. Almost all of Hewlett-Packard’s new printers use chips to control their cartridges’ interactions with the printer, including data on the level of toner or ink still available. This means that a remanufactured toner cartridge without a new chip will give a message to the printer that the cartridge is empty, even when it is new and full.
Remanufactured cartridges will always be environment friendly and an economically good choice due to its good market price.
