When it comes to protecting the investment in your printer fleet and safe-guarding the reliable printer performance your business depends on, the importance of routine printer maintenance cannot be overstated. Poor print quality and printer downtime negatively affects your users and your budget, from lost productivity and frustration, to reprinting costs that can really add up in terms of wasted resources (think toner & paper).
Routine printer maintenance is just like your car’s 3500 mile oil change. Like your car, your printer needs routine maintenance to reduce the risk of a breakdown. A good rule of thumb – install a genuine maintenance kit and fuser with every 6th toner replacement for optimal performance.
Routine preventive maintenance for your printers is very cost effective and:
- ensures optimum performance of your printers
- extends the useable life of your printers
- reduces printer downtime
- maintains and improves print quality
What is a Maintenance Kit?
The components of a maintenance kit vary from printer to printer, and from manufacturer to manufacturer. However, in general, a printer maintenance kit will include:
- Fusing assembly (fuser)
- Paper pick up or feed/separation rollers
- Transfer roller
What does replacement of a Maintenance Kit entail?
- Replacing the parts listed
- Clean-up of toner and paper dust
- Inspection of other high wear items
