Quality Process for Toner Cartridge Remanufacturing

Remanufacturing of toner cartridges is a specialized process that requires many steps in order to achieve “original OEM” quality standards.   Unlike the “drill and fill” methods used by many manufacturers, top tier resellers like Ink Technologies source cartridges only from manufacturers that use the most rigorous quality standards.   Here is an overview of a high quality toner cartridge remanufacturing process:

Toner Cartridge Inspection

1. Sorting and Grading

All incoming toner cartridge empties are strictly inspected and sorted according to model, color and quality level before delivery to the production line. Only premium empty cartridges are used, to ensure optimal quality.

Or perhaps the better question…will the sun rise tomorrow?

3D Printing Human Beings: A New Cloning Debate?

Seriously. In less than two months we’ve gone from simply introducing the Objet/Stratasys merger, to 3D prosthetic limb devices, to printing real body parts.

The question we were literally forced to ask on Facebook is…is there anything stopping us from 3D printing a real, live human being? It’s an honest question. After the real body part story, Fox News reported that researchers had developed a 3D printed skull, which has “helped replace 75 percent of a patient’s skull with the approval of U.S. regulators.”
