Get to know more about laser printer cartridges
Laser printers are widely used now. Laser printers use technology which is based on electrostatic principle for printing the content onto the paper. Laser printers use laser cartridges for printing which is also called toner or toner cartridge. The function of toner cartridge is to deliver the powder or liquid toner into the machine. This could be divided into two types: dry toners and liquid toners. Dry toners uses dry powders which are heat sensitive. Liquid toners are liquid dye which is made of acrylic resin. Different types of laser toner cartridges include compatible cartridges, OEM cartridges and remanufactured cartridges. Compatible cartridges are the third party cartridges which are manufactured by third party manufacturers. OEM cartridges are the original cartridges produced by the manufacturer itself. To attain high quality printing, it is wise to use OEM cartridge.

Role of Refilling
Refilling of cartridge could help you to use the same cartridge after filling the powder again. If you see some words are missing or faint while you print you could take it as an indication that the cartridge is empty. Refilling is to be done as soon as it gets empty. Never go for printing process after you are sure that there is no powder inside as this could damage the cartridge. Laser printers are very easy to detect as there is a mechanism to give you prior indication of low amount of powder inside.
Refilling process could be done in cartridges up to 3 to 4 times. Refilling process needs clean cartridges. So clean both internal and external parts of cartridge to get high quality printing after refilling with new powder. While you refill the powder, choose the compatible powder itself to get maximum performance and quality in printing. You could refill the cartridges by buying the kits to refill or you could approach shops to do refilling in a professional way.
Remanufacturing or reengineering is the process of making the cartridges stronger by replacing the worn out parts. After third refilling, you could do the reengineering process. Reengineering process of cartridges include cleaning and replacing worn out parts. After this process it is filled with new powder or ink and tested well before delivering to the customer. This is one of the recycling methods to use the old cartridges and this could reduce waste.
