Compatible inkjetcartridges are brand new
inkjetcartridges manufactured by a different manufacturer
than the OEM manufacturer. By using top quality
components designed specifically for each separate
cartridgemodel, these cartridges deliver a printing-quality
surprisingly close to the OEM-cartridges, at a much lower
Our cartridges are produced in a government certified ISO
9001 controlled process, that is continuously being
monitored by 2 separate and independently operating
quality control groups, in order to maintain and possibly
even enhance our current quality level.
We are proud to say that our defect-return level is stable
and among the lowest in this industry, with a maximum
(depending on the model) of 2 %, while for most models the
defect levels are even lower.
Our compatible inkjetcartridges can be kept in storage for
up to 2 years after production, as long as the vacuum
sealed bags are not opened.
Please check our current compatible inkjetcartridge
programme in the other pages at this website. The
programme is continuously being expanded with all the
latest new models, so please come back and check the
programme for updates regulary.
Remanufactured inkjetcartridges are basically empty original, OEM
manufactured, cartridges that have been cleaned and refilled with ink.
Generally these are cartridges with integrated electronic circuits and
printhead, which are difficult and expensive to produce. Furthermore
these cartridges are generally also protected by copy- & patent-rights,
so that it is simply not allowed to produce and sell these as compatible
cartridges as mentioned above.
The typical remanufacturing process for these cartridges consists of
the following steps :
1) Collection of empty used OEM cartridges
2) Visual inspection of printhead, electronics and cartridge appearance
3) Electronic test in special electronic testing devices
4) Internal (printhead) cleaning process
5) Refill process
6) Printing tests
7) Exterior cleaning process, labeling, sealing and packing
While it may appear to be a simple thing to do, anyone who has ever
tried it will know that appearances can be deceptive. These processes
are different for each cartridge model, and take a minimum of a couple of
months up to a couple of years to develope. That is : if one wants to
produce a reliable stable quality product with OEM-comparable printing
results and return-rates.
The results of a quality process are however surprisingly good. Our
remanufactured cartridges can be kept in storage for 2 years, just the
same as the original cartridges, and even more important : printing
quality and return-rates are spectacular close to the OEM cartridges !
Opposite as is the case with remanufactured inkjetcartridges, remanufactured tonercartridges
are NOT just merely empty OEM tonercartridges, which have been refilled with tonerpowder.
Some companies do 'remanufacture' their
tonercartridges in that way (by just refilling it),
but this can not be considered proper
Tonercartridges have a number of rotating parts
that all are subject to wear during the toner's
lifecycle. By just simply refilling the empty
tonercartridge after it's first lifecycle, it will very
likely give a good print-quality when tested, but
this way of 'remanufacturing' does not give any
guarantee that the cartridge will last the entire
(2nd) lifecycle. It is very possible that 1 or more
parts will reach a critical point of wear during
the 2nd lifecycle, thus resulting in problems with
the cartridge early in it's 2nd life.
A proper process to truly remanufacture a
tonercartridge starts with disassembling the
cartridge into it's smallest parts. 2nd step in the
process is cleaning of all parts so that they
can be inspected properly. Step nr. 3 is sorting out those parts that can be used again and replacing parts
that need to be replaced. The decision for parts to be replaced or not, is taken as a result of two factors :
experience and company-policy. It is our policy to always replace the blades and always either replace or
apply a new OPC-coating layer to the OPC-drum. PCR's are cleaned and treated with special chemicals to
make them as if new again. A similar process is applied to the magnetic roll. If any parts are found
damaged or worn too much they will be replaced.
Furthermore we do not like our tonercartridges to look old, or , even more important, to leak toner.
Therefore all foam/felt gaskets are removed and replaced with new ones, the toner-hopper reservoir is
split and sealed with a sealing strip, and the cartridge exterior is repainted.
Final step is a thorough test programme where printing and other (noise) tests are carried out by 2
seperate independent testing teams.
Result of this process, which takes an average of about 3 hours for 1 cartridge, is that we get a final
product which looks and performs as a brand new OEM-cartridge, with OEM-comparable return rates.
