2. HP Printer Repair Training

We have become the industry leader in training technicians from around the world on how to repair some of the most popular printer models. Our ServicePLUS printer repair training is a compilation of the collaborative disciplines of parts theory, service management and general printer repair. Classes provide students with hands-on, real-life scenarios which will challenge them to repair everything possible for each technology element. Students break it, fx it, install it, troubleshoot it, upgrade it and deploy it.


3. Certified Remanufactured Printers

Metrofuser offers a full line of remaufactured laser printers. The devices are rebuilt from the ground up with color corrected resurfacing to make them appear and function like new. equipped with scalable warranties (6-18-24 months) that offer customers full control over cost points, expenses and profitability.

Developing a Critical HP Printer Parts Stocking Strategy


Metrofuser is recognized the leading independent parts distributors. We are not subject to the influences and authority of OEMs or private equity groups. We serve as a firewall between dealers and potential competitors. As the industry consolidates, vendors with OEM authorizations not aligned with their dealers can become a liability. Our independence also means we can shop the world for OEM parts taking advantage of currency arbitrage and discounts in various world markets.


1-2 Day Ground Delivery to 80% of the Largest Metropolitan Areas

We have established a network of strategically located distribution centers nationwide that provides 1-2 day ground to 80% of the largest US metropolitan areas. Fully Integrated shipping system and Dimensional shipping scale maximizes efficiency and reduces shipping costs.


What Goes Into Our Fusers is What Sets Us Apart


Improving the Original Printer Part Designs and Production Process

Metrofuser leads with innovation. We identify the weak points in Original Equipment and invest in solutions to eliminate these failures. Our engineers develop new technologies and customize equipment to automate our manufacturing process. Over the years, these developments have improved the parts we make over and above the level of quality of the OEM part they replace.


Fusers are as only as good as the platform they’re built upon so many inferior new build cores are rejected due to their origin. Final selection begins with cores with true frame alignment. Gear posts and weld tolerances are inspected. OEM fasteners and fixture points are married throughout the rebuild process. Only components that successfully pass the dimensional and functional tests can go into a metrofuser exchange product.

Part repair procedures are clearly defined and documented. This ensures consistently high quality through the entire process.


Our HP fuser film grease is a Synthesized fluorinated oil that is anti corrosive, nonflammable, and long-lasting. Our formulation is thickened with a high efficiency agent that gives it a high melting point and stability in a wide variety of operating conditions.


Our “by hand” placement process for grease allows us to hit all the hot spots on the fixing film cradle. While the “by hand” application of grease is more expensive it has proven to be the far superior method by reducing paper jams by 5% compared to the straight beaded process used by the Automated Dispensing Robots.


Today's business laser printers commonly operate between 40 to 60 pages per minute with duty cycles up to 250,000 pages per month. Between the heat, friction and pressure these devices and their fusers are pushed to their limits. Too many heating elements are failing prematurely so Metrofuser worked with a specialty manufacturer in the development of Thermo/Seal adhesive for the heating element. Thermo/Seal has reduced the occurrence of 50 Service errors, the most common failure found on fusers. Reducing these errors has meant fewer warranties and service company call backs.


Advanced Technology Used in Fuser Film Selection

There are over 20 inherent properties of fuser film sleeves. Many are relevant to specific gravity, temperature index, melting point, tensile strength, dielectric strength, film thickness, coating thickness, and others that directly affect performance. Metrofuser worked with the Rutgers School of Engineering to benchmark OEM films and isolated the correct parameters prior to selecting its manufacturer.


When one of the top selling laser printer models started failing in mass months after its release due to fuser film tearing, Metrofuser’s engineers went to work. The company developed a process to replace the polymer sleeve used by the OEM with a Steel Sleeve. The result virtually eliminated film failures saving companies thousands.

Every part and printer we offer is tested before it goes out the door. Metrofuser conducts comprehensive multi page image quality tests inspecting for density and print defects, page yield, noises, toner adhesion and even odors.


Metrofuser's HP color laserjet fusers offer brilliant color output and guaranteed against image defects. Reliable parts solutions are in high demand with the advent of more feature-rich printers in the marketplace. Our customers require the most precise imaging technology in this demanding market. Our fusers are engineered and tested to work flawlessly with OEM and compatible toners.


Standardized print testing is conducted with ColorLok® paper Technology.


Testing is so important to us we developed software that allows our engineers to emulate the real world printing performed by end-users. PrintSim™ torture tests fusers, rollers, paper handling devices and logic boards with the on / off process that occurs when a printer is used in an office atmosphere. This all adds up to more accurate testing which improves quality.


Information on the rebuild process and parts used is coded on the product and scanned at order fulfillment. This data makes it possible to make improvements.

Today we also remanufacture products outside of the Metrofuser family which is an engine for growth and good news for Metrofuser, its customers and the world we all share.
