Quality and performance optimized through research and development

INTEGRAL has invested in a state-of-the-art toner development and research laboratory to develop monochrome and color toner formulations. Our qualified research engineers use highly sophisticated analytical equipment in the development of toners to optimize the performance of each copier and printer system.

Each new toner formulation is first produced in our pilot plant before undergoing extensive testing. Only once a toner has passed our testing and quality control is it moved into full commercial production. This approach ensures all products launched to the market reach 100% quality and performance.

Quality and reliability are top priorities

Quality control is central to our operation to ensure consistent quality and reliability for each toner. Toners are checked and monitored throughout the automated manufacturing process, from raw material processing to the final product.

Before shipping, each production batch has to pass a Quality Control Analysis with our research and development laboratory and quality control copy and print testing.

New toner products are tested under different environmental conditions and with extensive performance testing before commercial production.
