Metrofusers Develops PrintSim Emulation Software For its Manufacturing and Testing Process.
Better Testing Means Better Quality
Laser printer parts manufacturer Metrofuser (www.metrofuser.com) has developed a proprietary print emulation software. PrintSim enables real world office testing within an engineering lab setting. Better testing means better quality.
The most common industry testing practice has been to test sub assemblies and components under evaluation in a straight 50,000- 200,000 page print life cycle. Unfortunately it has never represented how American end-users print in a real world setting.
PrintSimâ„¢ is software that allows Metrofuser's engineers to emulate the real world printing performed by end-users. As an example, a laser printer in a hospital may sit idle for 30 minutes and then run single page prints for next 60 minutes then sit idle again. PrintSim torture tests fusers, rollers, paper handling devices and logic boards with the on / off process that occurs when a printer is used in an office atmosphere.
PrintSimâ„¢ offers infinite control such as the ability to throttle the time between print jobs down to the minute. Most importantly, its gives the testing engineers the flexibility of changing between the types of print jobs. Test prints can jump between text and detailed graphics and in any combination. This all adds up to more accurate testing which improves quality for the end-user.
Reliable parts solutions are in high demand," stated Will DeMuth, Chief Operating Officer, "Our customers require the most precise imaging technology in this demanding market and our Research and Development team has devised a solution for testing parts.â€
The PrintSimâ„¢ innovation will be used across all product lines and represents a continued commitment to invest in Research and Development. DeMuth reiterates "Metrofuser's priority is to develop best-in-class repair and remanufacturing procedures along with rigid performance testing that enables us to deliver replacement parts that are unequaled in reliability and quality."
