Why common remanufactured cartridges simply dont work…
The History of CCS, Inc. Back in 1991 Sharon Summers, CEO of Carolina Cartridge Systems, Inc., realized the market had a need for high quality and sustainable alternatives to OEM toner cartridges. OEM costs were outrageous and there was little or no concern for natural resources or the environment. Hence the birth of CCS. Over the next 21 years CCS evolved into a highly sought after brand serving customers of all shapes and sizes nation wide. Because of our unique manufacturing process even the most discerning organizations have come to trust CCS for their cartridge and printer service needs. Continually innovative, tenacious about our quality, and with our customers and the environment close to our hearts Carolina Cartridge Systems, Inc. is and will continue to be the single best choice for your printing supply needs. 21 Years Experience Woman owned & operated Conserving up to 4 Times the Natural Resources Mission Critical Performance With an Average Success Rate of 99.5% Proudly Made in America!

Why Traditional Reman Cartridges Simply Dont Work
Most common reman processes involve sawing the cartridge in half, destroying the structural integrity of the OEM Casing. Although this industry wide practice greatly reduces costs, it does not allow for perfect realignment, making common remans much more likely to cause streaks, leaks, and printer damage. As one of the most experienced US cartridge remanufacturers, CCS respects the precise and complex engineering of OEM cartridges. In order to preserve the structural integrity of the cartridge, CCS disassembles them by hand rather than sawing. This foundational process alone practically eliminates the leaks and streaks commonly associated with remans. Common Reman Cartridges OEM & CCS Certified Cartridges Split Seam Clips Why Traditional Reman Cartridges Simply Dont Work
Re-Attachment Clips Structurally altered cartridges are easy to identify with the common clamping methods present and obvious along the split seam. Look for black, sliver, or rust colored metal clips ¼ - 1 long, single piece spines, and the less obvious pinch welds. Split Seam Area IDENTIFYING SPLIT-ALTERED CARTRIDGES IS EASIER WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR Why Traditional Reman Cartridges Simply Dont Work
Split Seam Clips REATTACHMENT CLIPS ARE SURPRISINGLY EASY TO REMOVE, OFTEN COME LOOSE, AND FALL INTO THE PRINTER DURING USAGE. Why Traditional Reman Cartridges Simply Dont Work
Split Seam Clips and Leak Zone Typical Reman Split/Reclip Results Leaks Streaks Printer Damage Dirty Prints Unhappy Users Lost Savings Excessive Down Time Toner cartridges are designed to flex slightly as the printer drive gears engage to print. Once split and reattached, the slight flex can cause the clips to loosen and the bottom seam to reopen, allowing toner to leak into the printer. As you can see here, toner can leak through the split seam even when the clips are in place. Why Traditional Reman Cartridges Simply Dont Work

What Makes CCS Exceptional & Different? We are what we repeat edly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle
What Makes CCS Exceptional & Different? Mag Roller reuse causes light uneven print, and/or washed out areas on pages. Users often mistake this defect as empty underutilizing the resource without credit. Mag Roller End Felts and Foams Insures clean edges on printed documents. Gears are inspected to prevent severe printer damage Doctor Bar Regulates toner onto the Mag. Insures clean prints and even density. Mag Roller MUST BE REPLACED EVERY TIME Filled with Highest Quality Toner Insures density while exceeding OEM stated yields! Mag Roller Sealing Blade MUST BE REPLACED and is absolutely critical in preventing leaks and lines down the pages. REPLACE ALL WEARABLE COMPONENTS TONER HOPPER SIDE
