Metrofuser's Quality Management System Event Horizon Goes Live

Metrofuser's Quality Management System
 Event Horizon Goes Live
ROSELLE NJ, August 4th, 2014 Laser printer services and solution firm, announced automation that promises to push the reliability of the company's remanufactured fusers and printers to greater levels.

The technology behind the dynamic interface is similar to what is used in the banking and financial industry and allows unparalleled visibility. The system records change events and graphically overlays the event on the warranty rates of the fusers and printers. This allows the company to track corrective actions and spot trends faster. The data is collected across all departments so changes to packaging, production processes and components can be better communicated and quantified.

"Critical introspection is a cornerstone to Metrofuser remanufacturing, this technology will allow greater insight." said Chief Operating Officer William DeMuth "Thousands of hours in research and development have gone into the implementation of the Event Horizon system and the last obstacles to its full capabilities were cleared this summer." said DeMuth "We are excited about unleashing its full potential."

Metrofuser Makes Paper Recommendations To Reduce Call Backs and Warranties


Printer Parts Provider Recommends ColorLok® and BLI Certification Paper For Reliable Office Printing.
ROSELLE NJ, May 20th, Metrofuser, a leader in the printer parts service industry, has announced its recommendation for the ColorLok® and BLI Certified paper for use in Laser Printers and MFPs. Metrofuser’s testing department prints over 5 million copies on 2.5 million pages of paper per year. Over the last 11 years and in the process of repairing over 500,000 parts and printer devices, the company has seen the effects of both good and bad paper.

Paper is increasingly a key contributor in poor printer performance and print quality but given little thought at the time of purchase and less thought when problems arise. Both ColorLok® and BLI Certified Paper provide clearly superior performance. Printers are more reliable and are able to maintain image quality over more pages when compared to abrasive, large-particle filler papers. In addition to experiencing significantly fewer paper jams and other errors, these papers leaves behind less dust and toner contaminants, which could potentially contribute to long-term printer reliability and image quality issues.

Testing for these certifications involve running roughly one million sheets through dozens of different copiers, printers, fax machines, digital duplicators and multifunctional devices while assessing packaging quality, cut/edge attributes, image clarity and crease permanence, as well as numerous "runnability" metrics. The tests prove which papers are least likely to suffer from image quality or sheet-feed problems.

Standards for MPS Providers
Managed print services are an all-in-one solution for large fleets providing maintenance, toner and devices. Typically, however, the acquisition of paper is left to the customer. While MPS providers have the financial liability and performance accountability for uptime, they have little control or knowledge with regard to the quality of the paper. Paper certifications allow MPS providers to update contracts with specifications regarding standards.

Certified papers are sold under various brands through retail, Internet, catalog, and contract stationers. Consumers can ask and look for the BLI or ColorLok® seal of approval on cartons and reams of imaging paper. One of the top manufactures funded a study shedding light on this growing problem. From the research, a paper titled “Laser Printer Performance and Reliability” was developed and is a great tool to educate end users. Links to this paper can be found below. Where to Buy

49.XXXX printer error what can this mean?


This error is caused by a few different things. Normally it is associated with a printer’s firmware. I have read the firmware needs to be upgraded. I have also read and heard other causes for this error. Maybe it is a driver issue. It could also be a jet direct card believe it or not. Those were just a few of what may be causing the 49.XXXX errors in printers.

Metrofuser Reaches 2 Million Pound Milestone


Metrofuser Reaches 2 Million Pound Milestone

In August 2013, Metrofuser (www.metrofuser.com) will have reclaimed over 2 million pounds of technology while re-manufactured over 450,000 mechanical and electrical devices, returning them back into productive use.


Metrofuser’s Whole Business Model is Based on Recycling and Reuse
Metrofuser reclaims, remanufactures then remarkets components from office imaging machines such as laser printers and copiers.

Metrofuser works with leasing companies, reclamation centers, original equipment manufactures and municipalities to recycle assets and prevent electronic waste from ending up in landfills.

The companies R2 ready support programs recycle through remanufacturingMetrofuser proactively collects end of life electronics and delivers these assets into a comprehensive remanufacturing program, where they are rebuilt to a “like-new” state and remarketed on whole or as sub assemblies. Metrofuser carefully removes, disassembles, cleans and ultimately remanufactures each component.  Many of the parts can be reintroduced back into the office ecosystem up to a half-dozen times. 

Highlights from 2012
  • Last Year, Metrofuser remanufactured 58,000 mechanical and electronic parts, diverting 350,000 pounds of technology from ending up in landfills.
  • Metrofuser recycled over 144,000 pounds of cardboard and paper.  E-invoicing uses technology to reduce paper waste, while a companywide paper and cardboard recovery and recycling initiative has ensured that no recyclable paper products are thrown away.
  • The company rebuilt and remarketed 29,000 pounds of laser printers.
  • Metrofuser also recycled over 22,000 pounds of aluminum/steel last year and is seeking to make sure that every unusable piece of equipment that cannot be a part of the remanufacturing process is reused and repurposed outside of the Metrofuser offices.
  • Metrofuser’s Green Packaging Program encourages customers to return cores using the original packaging and is often able to reuse molds several times before they are compressed to 10% of their mass footprint with full support of a nationwide return & recycle program from the packaging vendor.
Urban Economic Enterprise
Metrofuser’s technology center is headquartered within Roselle, New Jersey and its West Coast Distribution Center is in Santa Ana, California. Both offices are in designated Urban Enterprise Zones.  Through commerce, the company, its vendors and customers make a direct impact into some of the fastest recovering communities in the country.


“We are elated that we not only met our goals,” said Will DeMuth, Co-President, “but we have far exceeded it, contributing to a cleaner environment, establishing ourselves as an environmentally responsible corporate citizen, and continuing to raise the bar to increase responsibility industry-wide.“
