Lexmark has changed the printing game with its innovative new range of Unison toner cartridges, available from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC). The new Unison range delivers consistent high-quality prints using toner that melts at a lower temperature, reducing power consumption, with an intelligent toner sensor that shows users exactly how many pages they have left to print, effectively taking the guesswork out of printing.

“Unison’s formulation is unique, with special characteristics such as shake-free performance, ensuring that users get every last bit of toner out of the cartridge with minimal effort. Other key product features include faster time to print, so there is less time spent waiting for documents to print, and low-friction qualities, which increase toner flow, allowing toner to be efficiently transferred to the page. These features, along with the lower melting point of the toner, help to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon footprint,” explains Tyrone Malan, Lexmark Product Specialist at DCC.

Unison toner delivers consistently high-quality prints, from start to finish, because of the uniquely engineered formulation of the toner. Even when the cartridge is running low, there is no fading and no need to shake the cartridge. The print system itself features with a separate toner and imaging unit design and a high-yield fuser, which maximises the longevity of these components and delivers long-term reliability, ultimately saving time, money and the environment.

“Printers using the Unison system will also automatically alert you when supplies begin to run low. A built-in toner sensor offers information on the number of print pages remaining, based on usage averages, and when toner runs low a ‘pages remaining’ countdown that tells you exactly when you need to replace cartridges. High yield cartridges allow users to print almost twice as many pages compared to competing products, reducing waste products as a result of frequent cartridge changes and again contributing to reduced carbon footprint and greater eco-friendliness,” Malan adds.

As part of Lexmark’s commitment to the environment, the company also offers a free cartridge recycling program, preventing used cartridges from ending up on landfill sites. Recycled cartridges also contribute to the Cartridge Recycling Initiative for Babies (CRIB), which donates housing, clothing, food and care for children at Cotlands. Through this initiative, Lexmark recovers empty inkjet and laser cartridges from its customers, recycles them and makes a contribution to a charity in need.

“Lexmark’s Unison range takes this commitment to environmental and social responsibility one step further. Not only are these cartridges part of the recycling and CRIB initiative, they are also energy efficient and highly sustainable, enabling business productivity while caring for the environment and future generations of South Africans,” Malan concludes.

Lexmark Unison toner is available immediately from Drive Control Corporation.
