In 2012, Ninestar started to invest in its automated production lines for remanufacturing ink and toner cartridges. Eight of those original lines were dedicated to producing over 65,000 remanufactured inkjet cartridges every day.
Ninestar explained that key to the automation process, is the thorough cleaning of the used ink cartridges that have been collected and returned. Every used cartridge is cleaned three times in the Ninestar factory before being remanufactured, the company added. After being dried, the cartridges are refilled with ink on one of the eight advanced automated production lines.
Through automation of the remanufacturing process, batch-to-batch quality becomes more consistent and by minimising hand-made errors, Ninestar said that its smart lines deliver a success rate of up to 99%.
While offering “top-quality” products equivalent to the OEM standard, Ninestar said it includes additional ink to increase the page yield to be up to 50% higher than the OEM. Since implementing smart lines, Ninestar has found it can significantly shorten delivery times, almost three times faster than when using hand-made production lines.
Cartridges remanufactured on these lines include:
- EPSON T200/202/288/702/252/212 BK/C/M/Y
- EPSON 802/812/822 BK/C/M/Y
- HP 910/903/564 BK/C/M/Y
- HP 951/952/962/963 C/M/Y
- HP 950/952/962/963 BK
- HP 60/61/62/63/64/65/67 BK
- HP Eco-Saver series
Ninestar concluded that it remains committed to scaling up its operations and is planning to add another three fully automated ink cartridge lines in the future.
