Why Genuine Consumables & Parts
Make All The Difference:-
In today’s financial climate there is a temptation other suppliers of printing equipment to reduce up front expenditure by using compatible toners. However this can lead to unforeseen problems once the hidden costs of using compatible toner are revealed, both to the supplier and the end user. An authority in our industry “Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI) conducted a comparative test in 2011 to review the results of using genuine toner versus a “compatible” alternative. For their tests they used a Canon iR C2380 multifunction device using both genuine Canon toner cartridges against those manufactured by Katun. All cartridges were tested for yield and the devices were tested for image quality and reliability using the respective cartridges. Each cartridge brand was tested on two Canon iR C2380 devices, with each of the devices run to 200,000 impressions. In summary, the genuine Canon toner outperformed the compatible toner in every aspect of BLI’s test, with superior yields, better colour stability, superior device reliability and greatly reduced servicing demands. The results of the test showed the following differences between using genuine Canon toner and compatible Katun toner.
Genuine Consumables – Test Results
Results:- Genuine Canon toner cartridges achieved yields that were on average 30% higher on the 3 colours and 14.6% higher for black vs compatible toner cartridges.
Benefits:- Providing customers the need to switch toners less frequently and a reduced cost to the environment through less cartridge production, shipping etc.
Reduced Engineering calls
Results:- Devices using compatible Katun toner required 7 times as many service calls as devices running genuine Canon toner.
Benefits:- Offering customers reduced machine downtime and inconvenience waiting for technicians to arrive or with their machines out of use.
Reduced drum replacement
Results:- Devices using compatible Katun toner used on average twice as many drums as the devices using genuine Canon toner.
Benefits:- So genuine toner ensured that the drum life achieved the copy volume specified by the manufacturer. Keeping the machine operating for longer without a technician’s visit and reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing, shipping and fitting more drums.
