Color constancy

The right color is not born, it is obtained by strict control

Over the past five years, G&G has increased the number of remanufactured laser cartridges it produces and in 2021 the company remanufactured over 5 million toner cartridges from its remanufacturing center in Zhuhai.

Besides the obvious logistics of a centralized remanufacturing center that supports all global markets with remanufactured consumables, the big challenge is controlling product quality and consistency. At G&G, they’ve gone back to basics and reinvented Color Control technology.

According to G&G, Color Control Technology strikes the perfect balance between “precise product design, rigorous raw material selection and verification, strict manufacturing control, safety compliance, and a strong supply chain” to deliver professional-quality color pages. and optimum color performance.

Interior color control

The essence of Color Control is exactly covered by the name: to achieve good colors, you need to control these five key areas:

  • Product design
  • Raw materials
  • Manufacturing
  • Security Compliance
  • Supply Chain

Color Control is used in the refurbishment and manufacture of G&G products.

Product design

When it comes to refurbishment, product design is a big challenge. No two OEMs make their cartridges the same. This means that each type of cartridge must be reverse engineered to establish all aspects of the cartridge design and to understand, measure and test the interactions between all critical components. This information base is then used to develop, measure and test the raw material selection and remanufacturing process.

What do more than 50 in-house IP lawyers, more than 600 technical engineers, more than 4 external lawyers and the cooperation with more than 30 law firms have in common?

The short answer is that IP-Safe products are delivered thanks to the huge investment in R&D to overcome the technical barriers put in place by the printing OEMs and build its own portfolio of strong patents which are incorporated into their branded alternatives. traditional OEMs.

Raw materials

There’s a great English idiom “You can’t make a silk handbag out of a sow’s ear” which really means that it’s impossible to make something very successful or high quality out of something that is of poor quality. And that really applies when it comes to imaging consumables where the best isn’t always the cheapest or even the most expensive. Raw material selection is based on all internal interactions within the cartridge and with the cartridge and printer. In addition, the external interactions of your consumable in a printer with other brands.

G&G has a well-established and trusted network of raw material suppliers who understand the G&G Color Control philosophy and requirements for innovation in materials, quality, service and delivery.

Even the modest empty cartridge is important, G&G’s global collection and recycling campaign prioritizes obtaining pristine empty cartridges and has strict management in place for sorting and grading empty cartridges.

What do Imex, Mitsubishi and Tomoegawa toners have in common?

G&G uses premium chemical toners from IMEX, Mitsubishi, and Tomoegawa to deliver exceptional color performance that matches G&G’s unique product design, and lab-tested toners are fully compatible with OEM machines.

While toners are important, so is the chip, which in today’s consumables is critical to delivering the most complete functionality. As you’d expect, G&G uses chip supplies from Apex allowing G&G to access first-to-market chips and receive unique support from Apex to avoid firmware upgrade risks and provide solutions. custom chips.


G&G has a high degree of hybrid automated production options that include manual and semi-automated production for remanufactured products and fully automated production for new products.

  • Manual production allows more flexibility, judges the quality of voids by experience and solves different processing problems. Its operation is ideal for processes such as sorting and selecting voids, splitting, cleaning, assembly or any other complicated process.
    • The machine operation provides a more standardized and efficient way to perform routine and repeated processes, including automatic gluing, automatic dispensing, automatic oiling, automatic packaging, match test, filling of toner and suction.


In 2018, the decaBDE issue was a wake-up call for the industry and G&G has taken many steps to ensure environmental sustainability is always a priority for G&G. We insist on the use of non-toxic and safe toners and inks that will reduce environmental impact and each cartridge is manufactured in ISO 9001 certified facilities.

For G&G and the wider industry, we must all strive to reduce landfills to create a strong circular economy through recycling and refurbishment. G&G said it would never compromise quality, safety and durability standards.
