Sos Cartouches offers a complete range of compatible and remanufactured laser cartridges for professional printers. The range includes all-in-one cartridges, toner kits and drums as well as black and colour toner cartridges.
Original toner cartridges are sold by the manufacturer, the same manufacturer as the printer in most cases.
A remanufactured toner cartridge is a recycled original cartridge. it is taken from a collection point to a recycling factory where it is reconditioned. Worn parts are replaced.
Generic toner cartridges are manufactured in compliance with patents registered by a constructor who is not the one once of the printer.
All-in-one cartridges consist of toner and a drum. The other cartridges only consist of the toner.
The toner is the ink contained in the cartridge. This powder can be black, cyan, magenta or yellow.
The drum is either a part of the cartridge or of the printer. This component is used to print using an electro-photographic process.
The laser or printing head draws the pattern to be printed on the drum. The drum or, more precisely, the print cylinder, discharges in the areas crossed by the laser beam. The ink powder is drawn into the discharged areas. Toner is then deposited and fixed to the substrate. This is the printing technique used for office laser printers and photocopiers.
