Genuine Canon consumables are designed by Canon engineers and manufactured in Canon facilities. They are developed using precise specifications, so you can be confident that your Canon device will produce high-quality results, time and time again. Toner, parts and supplies are key ingredients for successful printing. Genuine Canon supplies give you confidence that you’ll have high quality throughout the entire printing process, delivering efficiency and minimal downtime for your machine. Genuine Canon consumables clearly show the Genuine mark and hologram on the packaging.
There are two avenues by which you can purchase Canon multifunctional devices; from Canon directly or from a Certified Partner.
If you purchase or lease your Canon multifunctional devices directly from Canon with a service contract, only genuine Canon consumables will be supplied.
Many Partners will supply genuine Canon consumables. To recognise those who do we have launched a Genuine Canon Supplies Certification. As part of this Certification we regularly check with our Certified Partners whether they are supplying genuine Canon consumables to their customers and conduct audits of their warehouse premises every six months.
To ensure that you are being supplied with genuine Canon toner, drums and spares check with your current Canon supplier that they supply genuine Canon consumables.
Compatible toner is not designed or manufactured by Canon, but is instead designed and manufactured by a third party to work in original equipment manufacturers’ (OEM) devices. Compatible toner is different to counterfeit toner. Counterfeit toner can be defined as a toner cartridge which appears to be manufactured by a major brand such as Canon and carries the logos, packaging, and other features that may lead the end user to believe it is an actual genuine Canon toner cartridge when in reality the toner has an unknown, unauthorised manufacturer.
In today’s financial climate we understand the temptation for suppliers of printing equipment to reduce up front expenditure by using compatible toners. However this can lead to unforeseen problems once the hidden costs of using compatible toner are revealed, both to the supplier and the end user.
In 2011, Buyers Laboratory Inc. (BLI) conducted a comparative test of genuine Canon toner cartridges against ‘compatible’ toner cartridges manufactured by Katun for use on the Canon iR C2380. All cartridges were tested for yield and the devices were tested for image quality and reliability using the respective cartridges. Each cartridge brand was tested on two Canon iR C2380 devices, with each of the devices run to 200,000 impressions.
In summary, the genuine Canon toner outperformed the compatible toner in every aspect of BLI’s test, with superior yields, better colour stability, superior device reliability and greatly reduced servicing demands.
The results of the test showed the following differences between using genuine Canon toner and compatible Katun toner.
