Rex-Tone (AT Inks) was able to answer all of my questions and was able to show all the documents I requested. The information I asked about a certain batch was successfully retrieved. The daily operations are being managed by a combination of hard copy, excel and other programs, like SAP. Quality control processes are in place at each part in the cycle. Internal audits are being performed on a regular basis. Communication with Rex-Tone is good with a fast response time. The personnel is trained. The R&D department of Rex-Tone is well equipped.

The Ink just prints and prints. No clogging, No print head issues, No running Issues. Have been using their inks for the past 13 years and have not lost any printheads due to ink.
