New Technology Improves Aftermarket Toner Cartridge Performance. 

Elizabeth NJ - June 12th, 2018 - Laser printer parts manufacturer Metrofuser ( announced new technology to improve aftermarket toner cartridge performance. 


Historical Problems

The popularity of aftermarket toner continues to rise as consumers have started to accept OEM alternatives as a cheaper, viable option.  In recent years, however, some of the toner particulate used to refill these cartridges have seen a greater degree of variables, whether it be size, coarseness or melting point when compared to original equipment manufacturer toner. These variables sometimes cause image defects, such as blurred print and poor toner adhesion.


Higher Tolerance

Metrofuser developed its high variant fuser technology to be more tolerant to the variables of modern aftermarket toner particulate. High Variant (HV) fusers have tuned thermal and pressure properties which allow greater tolerance and perform better with today's high variable toner particulate.

Proven Performance With Multiple Toner Brands

While conventional fusers are tested and benchmarked against a single OEM or a single brand of toner, Metrofuser's HV fusers are tested with multiple toner brands. Extensive A/B testing with imported and domestic aftermarket toner show that HV Fusers are more tolerant to the variances of modern toner and offer better print. HV Fusers even rival the image quality of the OEM fusers using aftermarket toner.


O/A Rated™

Metrofuser has awarded these fusers with its O/A Rating™ which means it not only engineered to work with the OEM it has been tested with at least 4 aftermarket toner cartridge brands. The O/A Rating™ is earned through comprehensive initial testing which includes full bleed and multi paper media. To maintain quality the O/A Rating™ requires products to be routinely tested over time.

If companies have experimented with aftermarket toner in the past and had difficulties, Metrofuser's engineers can assist in selection, sourcing, and even third party testing. Contact
