Kyocera has spent decades developing technologies that consistently deliver lower running costs than our competitors. Toner is not a “one size fits all” consumable and there is only one supplier who can deliver the quality, economy and reliability you expect when you purchase a Kyocera device.
Your business can save money with genuine toner. Original KYOCERA toners are independently tested to deliver a specific number of pages and you can be certain that the KYOCERA cassette you purchase will deliver the output volume you expect, which may not be the case for non-original toners.
To satisfy Germany’s Blue Angel eco-label requirement and to create a safer working environment, KYOCERA toner does not contain harmful substances such as mercury, cadmium, lead and nickel, Chromium VI compounds, dyes that might release carcinogenic particles.
The long-life design of KYOCERA devices is fundamentally different to other laser products. The durable components in our ECOSYS and TASKalfa multifunctionals are designed to operate in conjunction with original KYOCERA toner.
The high image quality for which KYOCERA devices are known is linked to the tiny size and accurate shape of the individual toner particles in an original KYOCERA toner cassette. Non-original toner particles may be too large or poorly shaped to deliver the same quality.
KYOCERA has developed a sophisticated manufacturing and logistics infrastructure that ensures the precise toner you need is available when and where you need it.
By using original KYOCERA toner with your KYOCERA ECOSYS devices, you ensure the authenticity of your documents, contracts and letters. The paper technology foundation and German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing have both certified most KYOCERA devices using KYOCERA original toner as being suitable for the printing of notarised documents.
Choosing KYOCERA can mean producing up to 85% less electronic waste during the life of the device thanks to ECOSYS technology. KYOCERA devices produce significantly less waste because the ECOSYS concept does not involve the replacement of the photoconductor drum and developer unit when the toner runs out. For example: an average competitor’s toner container includes 60 separately manufactured components, while an original KYOCERA toner cassette includes just four.
Counterfeit toner is manufactured and packaged to look almost identical to an original Kyocera toner. However, the big difference comes in the quality, reliability and performance where counterfeit toners can't compete. Counterfeit toner is manufactured and sold illegally, which is why Kyocera is in close co-operation with customs and law enforcement agencies throughout the EMEA region to remove counterfeit products from the market.
Kyocera applies security features to its products to guarantee that customers know that they are using only the best products. The security hologram, in combination with a Handy Viewer, permits a secure product authentication. In addition, there is often unusually low pricing of counterfeits product, but what may look like a bargain can turn out to be very costly. In order to be certain that a product is genuine, it is always advisable to purchase through an authorised Kyocera dealer channel. Please contact your dealer for the latest information on the colour-shift when using the Handy Viewer and hologram combination.
Ultimately, it is a customer’s decision whether to use a Kyocera original toner or a non-original one. However, technical defects or other technical problems caused by using non-original toner will not be covered by Kyocera’s Manufacturer’s Warranty. Only use original Kyocera toners so that there are no limitations to your guarantee.
