Gone are the days when everything has to be done by hand. Now in the age of computers, a printed form or document not only looks nice and presentable but also shows the professionalism and quality of the individual or business. Toner refills can be very expensive. Throughout the life of your printer, you can spend a large amount of money which is usually many times what you paid to buy your printer.
There are two main consumables in laser printers; they are drums and laser toner cartridges. Laser toners are basically the particles that bind to the paper and drums are cylindrical metal rollers which apply and fix the toner on the paper. The drums and cartridges are separately replaced in most printers while in others, cartridges and drum units are purchased as one.
If you need to replace your drum every time while replacing the cartridge, it may cost a significant amount of money. Therefore, choosing a printer with separate slots is a much better economical idea.
Toner refills are used in printers like ink is in inkjet printers – but it is a powdery substance most commonly used in laser printers and photocopier machines. The plastic containers in which toners are kept are known as toner cartridges or laser cartridges.
In the past, in order to manufacture toner, soot and carbon from manufacturing plants and factories were refined and used for filling the toner cartridges. This used to be an effective method for making toners but the resulting print outs were not as clear and sharp as high quality and original toners. To improve the output quality of these printers, fine raw carbon particles are mixed with polymers, as it gets bonded to the paper by the heat of the fuser unit. The resulting prints are much clearer and better defined.
Most components used in toner refills are reusable or recyclable and many printing and computer companies offer the service of refilling them. The costs of refilling are not too high and if the process of refilling is done by a reputable remanufacturer, your printer’s guarantee will not be voided, in fact HP encourage the use of recycled toner cartridges.
Printer toner refills have witnessed several technological changes and are mainly designed for producing professional quality images and text printing for reports. The result is much quicker and longer lasting than most other printing solutions.
While refilling your toner, you have to be extremely careful as toners can cause irritation which may result in respiratory problems such as bronchitis and asthma. The toner powder can leak from print cartridges while refilling and thus may produce dangerous situation on the users if they do not handle them with caution. We advise that you don’t fill them at home or in the office and just buy the complete unit from us.
