The Benefits of Remanufactured Ink & Toner

Why Should You Purchase Remanufactured Ink & Toner?
When it is time to replace your ink and toner cartridges, you might weigh the benefits between new cartridges and remanufactured. Knowing that you’re getting quality product that has not been tampered with can be a concern for those looking to switch to remanufactured ink and toner. As a qualified reseller of products like Innovera remanufactured ink and toner, you can always ensure that you are getting quality product. Here are just a few of the benefits.

Significant Cost Savings
Research shows that businesses can save up to 30 percent on ink or toner purchasing by switching to remanufactured ink and toner. Depending on your print environment and usage, you might be able to save even more. Those who have a high print volume tend to benefit best from making the switch to remanufactured product.

Less Energy & Resources Are Used
The eco-friendliness of remanufactured ink and toner is an obvious benefit, but the numbers may surprise you:

  • 79% less materials are consumed
  • 44% less natural resources are consumed
  • Environmental impact is nearly cut in half
  • 48% less energy is used to create remanufactured ink and toner

When you recycle the cartridge at the end of its life, it’ll go through the following process once picked up.

  1. Cartridge Evaluation – The cartridge is inspected. It will be determined whether it’s set for remanufacturing or grinding.
  2. Disassembly of Cartridge
  3. Sorting – Any plastics, blades, gears and PCR drums are sorted for proper recycling.
  4. Grinding – Plastic regrind is produced from cartridges.
  5. Plastic Ready for Reuse – Plastic that was grinded is used in various injection molding processes.
  6. New Product Development – Post consumer waste is added to create new product, completing the recycling process.

Page Yield is Just as Good, If Not Better, Then OEM Product
Many businesses question the page yields between OEM and remanufactured cartridges. The same Clover Imaging Group study found that all the toner cartridges tested met the page yield of OEM product. Some even exceed it. The remanufactured ink and toner sold by All-Type Vacuum & Janitorial will not void any manufacturer warranties you have in place with your copiers or printers.
