Compatible and Remanufactured Toner Process
· Receiving Inspectors analyze incoming empty toner cartridges to verify whether the toner cartridge is rebuildable (no scratches, virgin, etc).
· Only qualified toner cartridges will be stored into palletized sectionals that are designed to maintain the integrity of the toner cartridges.
Disassembly, Cleaning & Inspection
· Technicians completely disassemble toner cartridges which are opened either with a patented laser cutting technology or designed mechanical splitters that protect alignment pins for reassembly.
· During the disassembly process many of the components are transported in specially designed fixtures to maintain highest quality and percentage throughout.
· Pressurized air is used to clean excess toner from toner cartridge components.
· Each component is segregated, cleaned and qualified.
· Using a continuously filtered aqueous non-cfc solution, many components are sent to an ultrasonic cleaner removing microscopic particles.
· Qualified toner hopper are cleaned and resealed at the sealing station.
Incoming Component Inspection
· Qualified developers (mag rollers) are treated with a proprietary five-step process and have been tested to last through two additional cycles, however, would only be recertified once. Treated mag sleeves are superior to aftermarket mag sleeves and outperform recertified/untreated OEM mag sleeves.
· Primary Charge Rollers (PCR) are cleaned, tested and treated using similar machinery as the drum testing and have been tested to last through two additional cycles, however, would only be recertified once. Our PCRs are superior to aftermarket PCRs and are guaranteed to last throughout the most extreme printing conditions.
· Every wiper, doctor and sealing blade, and seal is inspected again prior to being used.
· Wiper, doctor and recovery blades are cleaned, inspected, coated or replaced.
· Every batch of toner is evaluated prior to manufacturing. Toner is tested at multiple stages of each barrel and must pass through a qualified sieve. Our standards are 20% more stringent than normal vendor specifications. This ensures components will not receive excessive wear throughout their lifecycle and improves print quality.
Assembly, Filling & Testing
· Qualified technicians are trained in each aspect of the build up from beginning to end product. Written build instructions with diagrams ensure each step is completed correctly. Stations are held accountable for toner cartridges passing through during the assembly process.
· Hopper are filled with new, custom formulated toner chemically and electrically matched to the complete system of the toner cartridge. Toner cartridges are filled through automated equipment and weighed before and after filling to ensure correct tolerances.
· Applicable toner cartridges are reassembled with a Patented Ultrasonic Welding Process.
· Brand new parts are added wherever necessary.
· Toner cartridges are 100% test run (not batch tested).
· Completed toner cartridges undergo a three-step quality control process:
1. First, the toner cartridge is used to print at least ten pages which are inspected for black, white, grayscale, text, and graphics printing. If no flaws are found, the toner cartridge flows to the QC station.
2. The QC station inspects the parts of the toner cartridge and test pages are reviewed a second time. The toner cartridge will then move to the packing station.
3. At the packing station, the toner cartridge and test pages are checked one more time.
· Toner cartridges are sealed in an easy-to-open moisture and lightproof bag and placed in a full color, lithographic box.
· Custom molded end caps are manufactured while toner cartridges are being built and are designed to provide damage-free shipping.
· New fuser and/or wiper wands and specific instructions are put in the box when applicable.
· CVOS provides user-friendly packaging with pull strips allowing the box to be opened without the use of knives, scissors or keys. In addition, it is re-sealable without tape for easy repackaging and returns.
· Our toner cartridges come with prepaid return labels and an extra prepaid bag for inkjet recycling.
· Packaging includes a written full warranty on the outside of the box.
Post Production Testing
· We post-test toner cartridges every day to ensure products meet and exceed OEM specifications.
· Toner cartridges are randomly pulled from inventory to record manufacturing dates and batch numbers.
· Engineers perform life and print quality testing under extreme temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressures.
· Our standard packaging is designed to survive 30 foot drops. For additional quality control, simulated shipping condition testing is performed including truck vibration and extreme changes in pressure.
