              Guide to Remanufacturing – Stage I

Stage One - Purchasing Raw Materials

 Empty cartridges are sourced from Speed Infotech certified
 Ink products are sourced exclusively from
 Ink quality and safety documented Material Safety Data Sheets
 Pure Water produced and PH value and electrical conductivity
 Ancillary materials are procured from certified suppliers
             Guide to Remanufacturing – Stage II

Stage Two – Cleaning & Drying
 Removal of ink residue and de-
clogging cartridge nozzle heads
 Primary cleaning - the inside of the
cartridge is cleaned at carefully
controlled temperature using a
cleaning agent
 Secondary cleaning in a
temperature controlled environment
using pure water
 Drying process – cartridges are
completely dried using fully
automated process
    Guide to Remanufacturing – Stage III/IV

Stage Three – Ink Filling
 Automated vacuum filling ensures correct ink volumes and
provides reliable and measurable performance.
 After filling each cartridge is subjected to a vacuum test

Stage Four – Quality Control
 Primary inspection - We conduct a full-page test on each and
every cartridge produced at our factory. The results are
evaluated and the cartridges are assigned accordingly.
 Secondary inspection – This is performed within 12-24 hour
period post production and primary inspection.
        Guide to Remanufacturing – Stage V/VI

Stage Five – Sealing and Coding
 All cartridges are tape sealed and
protected by clips where appropriate and
each cartridge is stamped with a production
code stating both date and batch number

Stage Six – Packing and Distribution
 Cartridges are labelled, sealed in a poly-
bag and packed in boxes with private label,
neutral, or SPEED branding as required
