MICR toner contains iron oxide which over time can eat away at toner cartridge components. If a cartridge is recycled, and the proper parts are not replaced, you run the risk of printer damage and print quality problems. Unfortunately, most vendors use inferior toner formulations and poor quality cartridges that could damage your printer and the quality of your MICR documents.
- We do not recommend using recycled MICR toner cartridges and suggest you ask your supplier these questions:
- What check reader/sorters have you used to verify the MICR toner?
- What are the expected character signal strengths throughout the life of the toner?
- What cartridge components, if any, did you replace while recycling?
