QA QC Lab

To ensure quality of our products, ACM has established an in-house testing lab at our corporate office in Corona to conduct in-bound product inspections as well as defective cartridge testing. We currently have printers available for all of our most popular items and are constantly adding printers as new models are introduced.

Top 5 reasons why you can count on ACM quality

  1. ISO 9001/14001 certified manufacturing facilities
  2. Our remanufactured cartridges only utilize virgin cores and the highest quality components.
  3. Each cartridge is individually tested prior to packaging.
  4. All cartridges are backed by a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
  5. All cartridges are tested to provide OEM equivalent yield and output.

ACM follows a specific check-list for our
in-house testing, which includes:

  • Visual Inspection of Packaging & Labeling

    We look at package quality and accuracy of information as well as lot / barcode information.

  • Visual Inspection of Cartridge

    We look for apparent leaks, blemishes, damages, etc.

  • Seal Tape Test

    We make sure seal tapes are functioning properly and can be pulled with no problems.

  • Printer Recognition Test

    Each cartridge is installed in a printer to make sure cartridge is recognized.

  • Print Quality Testing

    We use a number of test patterns to inspect overall print quality, density, color, text, etc.

  • Testing Process

    We look for fusing issues, abnormal banding or streaks, backgrounding, ghosting, and other potential issues that could lead to defectives.

  • Full Yield Test

    We will also run a full yield test on cartridges to ensure the cartridge can print up to the stated yields.
