Benefits Of A Digital Copier Over An Analog Copier

Content Courtesy of BuyerZone

Many businesses today have a photocopier for use in creating copies of different documents. When it comes to photocopiers there are two different types that consumers can choose from. These two choices are analog copiers and digital copiers. An analog copier is the old fashioned copier that many people are already familiar with. This type of copier creates copies through a process that requires a positively charged drum and a negatively charged ink toner. Digital copiers are becoming increasingly popular today because of the way that it does the copying job, while also rewarding owners with many other benefits.

High Quality Documents and Pictures

The digital copier uses a negatively charged drum with a positively charged toner system in order to print the documents and pictures. This means that a much higher quality documents is produced. This document is also scanned into the memory of the copier which enables it to be manipulated by a computer, saved for future printing, or transmitting to another computer through email or fax.

Digital Copiers Are Multi-Function Machines

Digital copiers are a great investment for any small business. The biggest reason is that they can perform many different functions within the one piece of equipment. Digital copiers can be used as a standalone copier, computer printer, fax machine, and even flat bed scanner. Connected through the use of wireless technologies, the digital copier has even more capabilities and convenience.

Less Costly to Operate

Many businesses today are taking a look at the way that money is being spent within their offices. Digital copiers present businesses with a much lower cost of operation over analog copiers. These copiers do not require as much maintenance as analog computers, as well as the lower cost of ink. However, the largest cost saving factor is that the ink itself is higher yield which results less cost per page.

Digital Copiers Are Environmentally Friendly

When it comes to noise pollution, digital copiers are not a big contributor. They run very quietly and efficiently. Digital copiers also have an energy saving standby mode which powers the copier down, but not completely. Paper is also saved through the use of duplex printing and less paper jams during operation.

Faster Printing

Copying processes can take a lot of time with the use of an analog printer. Since digital copiers store the documents into an internal memory, there is not need for a continuous moving of the carriage and drum. It only has to scan the document once and then can make as many copies as the operator wants. Speeds of up to 30 pages per minute is not unusual with a digital copier.

Smaller and More Compact

Digital technology has enabled manufacturers to create smaller machines to replace the larger, more cumbersome pieces of equipment. Full featured digital copiers can be set on a desktop today without taking up a lot of room. This means that they are also less costly, but will not take up a lot of space in a small office building.

The Importance of Photocopiers in Offices

By , All About Photocopiers Blog

A photocopier will complete an office. In reality, an office could not function well without a photocopier. Without an office photocopier, it is certain that offices will not be able to complete their tasks. This kind of equipment is a vital need in every offices because it will not only allow you to finish your work ahead of time but they will also allow you to save some cash. All of this are attainable since these machines have a unique photocopying technology that allows you to generate more and more copies of a single file promptly and economically.

Because these photocopiers don’t utilize the same printing system with the desktop printers, it is certain that they do not use costly inks used by desktop printers and also, they produce copies a lot faster than usual printers at large quantities. These are just few of the many reasons why photocopiers are vital in all offices.

The purpose of photocopiers stands out when it performs its task very well which is generating duplicates. This is completed by dint of controlling the positive as well as the negative charges that generates a power-driven decal which clarifies on which sections of the page will be produced and which sections will remain empty. The process will only take a couple of seconds and can be done again without any difficulty. From making loads of duplicates of a certain file that need to be spread out to the entire staff of the building, to printing flysheets to be delivered to a great deal of people, it is certain that no machine can surpass the replication ability of a Bizhub 751 photocopier mechanism. When your office necessitates replicating thousands and millions of copies with the use of an office photocopier, it is certain that an office can save a great deal of time, effort, money and other valued resources.

As mentioned earlier, photocopies do not make use of the same type of ink as desktop printers do. A couple of printers often utilize inks that are based on powders so as to print a certain document, this is less costlier and can make more copies than its quantity in the ink vessels. While producing a great deal of duplicates in a desktop printer or any types of printer may require you more time, effort and money but however, it is different in photocopiers because the inks they consume are a lot cheaper yet proficient.

Speed rate is one of the most foremost reasons why there are a whole heap of offices that utilize photocopiers on lease at this present time. Producing tons of copies will just be a button pushes away if you use photocopiers.

Photocopiers

Photocopiers

by Chris Woodford, ExplainThatStuff.com.

September 1, 2015.

Big companies sometimes make big mistakes. When American inventor Chester Carlson (1906–1968) approached some of the world’s largest corporations with his idea for a photocopying machine, during the 1940s, they simply didn’t want to know. They couldn’t imagine who would want to make lots of copies of documents. It took Carlson years to turn the idea into one of the most important office inventions of the 20th century—and those companies kicked themselves when they realized just how big an opportunity they’d missed. Photocopiers look complex, but they work using two pretty simple pieces of science. Let’s take a closer look inside!

Static electricity: a neat kind of glue!

Have you ever tried that party trick where you rub a balloon on your pullover 20 or 30 times? If you rub enough, you can make the balloon stick to your clothes all by itself. What you see isn’t magic: it’s static electricity. When you rub the balloon, you give it an electrical charge. At the same time, you give your pullover an opposite electrical charge. Unlike charges attract, so the balloon sticks to you.

Photo: Look, no hands! Static electricity can “glue” things together using opposite electrical charges. This science is put to practical use inside a photocopier.

How does this happen? As you rub the balloon, electrons (the tiny negatively charged particles inside atoms that carry electricity) move from your pullover onto the balloon. In other words, the balloon gains more electrons than it should have and picks up an overall negative electrical charge. Since the electrons have left your pullover, it has fewer electrons than it should have and an overall positive electrical charge. Now things with an electrical charge are a bit like magnets. Two objects with an opposite electrical charge tend to move toward one another, or attract, just like two magnets with opposite poles. (Our article on static electricity explains all this in much more detail.)

What’s light got to do with electricity?

Static electricity is one of the two scientific tricks that makes a photocopier work. Now let’s explore the other: photoconductivity.

If you believe what you read in science books, you probably think light and electricity are totally different things. Light comes from the Sun and powers things like flashlights; electricity flows round wires and makes things like vacuum cleaners and refrigerators work. So light has nothing to do with electricity, right? Wrong! Light is actually a kind of electricity. A ray of light is an ultra-fast wave of electricity and magnetism wiggling back and forth and zapping through space. That helps us to explain how solar power (making electricity from sunlight) works. When sunlight shines onto a solar panel, the solar cells inside it soak up the electrical energy in the light and convert it back into an electrical current (flow of electrons) that can be used to power something.

There’s something similar to a solar cell in a photocopier and it’s called a photoconductor. Instead of producing an electric current when light shines onto it, it captures the pattern of the light as a pattern of static electricity. What use is this? Suppose you shine a flashlight at your hand to cast a shadow image of a rabbit’s ears on the wall. But instead of shining the shadow on the wall, you shine it on a photoconductor. Some parts of the photoconductor will be brightly lit (where the light passes around your hand) and some parts will be dark (where your hand casts a shadow). The photoconductor will gain an electrical charge where it is light and no charge where it is dark. In other words, it will have a kind of “electrical copy” of your hand. This is the key to how a photocopier works.

Writing with light

After a great deal of research and tinkering in his laboratory, Chester Carlson figured out how he could use these two bits of science—static electricity and photoconductivity—to help him make copies of documents.

Suppose you want to copy a page from a book. If you shine an extremely bright light on the book, you can make a shadow of the black and white characters on the page, just like casting a shadow of your hand. If you shine the light onto the page at an angle, it doesn’t reflect straight back: it bounces off at an angle. So, by shining the light at an angle, you can throw a shadow of the page onto another object. Let’s suppose you put a photoconductor nearby and throw the image of the page onto that. You won’t create a shadow on the photoconductor—you’ll make a pattern of electrical charges: an electrical version of a shadow. Now if we sprinkle ink powder over the photoconductor, toner particles will stick to the charged areas of this “electrical shadow” like tiny little balloons sticking to your pullover. All we have to do then is press a piece of paper onto the photoconductor to lift the ink away. Hey presto, the paper has a copy of the original page! This whole process, which Carlson named xerography (combining two Greek words to mean “dry writing”), is automated inside a photocopier and can happen over and over again very quickly.

In case that’s not clear, I’ll go through it all again, exactly as it happens inside the copier, in the box below.

How a photocopier works

How a modern copier works

  1. You place the document you want to copy upside down on the glass
  2. An extremely bright light scans across the document. Much more light reflects off the white areas (where there is no ink) than off the black, inked areas.
  3. An “electrical shadow” of the page forms on the photoconductor. The photoconductor in a photocopier is a rotating conveyor belt coated with a chemical called selenium.
  4. As the belt rotates, it carries the electrical shadow around with it.
  5. An ink drum touching the belt coats it with tiny particles of powdered ink (toner).
  6. The toner has been given an electrical charge, so it sticks to the electrical shadow and makes an inked image of the original page on the belt.
  7. A sheet of paper from a hopper on the other side of the copier feeds up toward the first belt on another conveyor belt. As it moves along, the paper is given a strong electrical charge.
  8. When the paper moves near the upper belt, its strong charge attracts the charged toner particles away from the belt. The image is rapidly transferred from the belt onto the paper.
  9. The inked paper passes through two hot rollers (the fuser unit). The heat and pressure from the rollers fuse the toner particles permanently onto the paper.
  10. The final copy emerges from the side of the copier. Thanks to the fuser unit, the paper is still warm. It may still have enough static electric charge to stick to your pullover. Try it (but make sure the ink is dry first).

How Chester Carlson’s original copier worked

What happens in a modern copier isn’t so very different from the process that Chester Carlson originally designed. We can see that by taking a look at one of the design drawings from his original photocopier patent. I’ve colored and simplified the numbering to show roughly what’s happening:

  1. You insert the original document (to be copied) into a slot (green) at the top.
  2. The document is carried into the machine by a belt and roller mechanism (dark blue).
  3. A bright lamp (yellow) shines through the document and transfers an electrical shadow of it onto the photoconductor (orange).
  4. The photoconductor is mounted on the outer surface of a drum (red), which carries the image past the toner hopper and brush.
  5. Toner is now attracted from the hopper onto the charged parts of the drum.
  6. You insert a blank sheet of paper into a slot on the opposite part of the machine. Carried inside by rollers (purple), it picks up the inked image from the drum.
  7. A fuser unit heats, presses, and seals the image into the paper and the finished copy emerges.

As you can see from all the dozens of small numbers on the original drawing, this is a very simplified account of what’s really happening—and all the parts and pieces that are involved. You can read a much more detailed explanation by taking a look at Chester Carlson’s patent, listed in the references below. Although technical, it’s very readable and fairly easy to understand.

How the Photocopier Changed the Way We Worked—and Played

How the Photocopier Changed the Way We Worked—and Played

Decades before 3-D printers brought manufacturing closer to home, copiers transformed offices, politics and art
By Clive Thompson, Smithsonian Magazine
March 2015

Recently I visited Whisk, a Manhattan store that sells kitchen goods, and next to the cash register was a strange, newfangled device: a 3-D printer. The store bought the device—which creates objects by carefully and slowly extruding layers of hot plastic—to print cookie cutters. Any shape you can think of, it can produce from a digital blueprint. There was a cutter in the shape of a thunderbolt, a coat of arms, a racing car.

“Send it in the morning and we’ll have it ready in a week or two,” the store clerk told me. I wouldn’t even need to design my own cookie cutter. I could simply download one of hundreds of models that amateurs had already created and put online for anyone to use freely. In the world of 3-D printers, people are now copying and sharing not just text and pictures on paper, but physical objects.

Once, 3-D printers were expensive, elite tools wielded by high-end designers who used them to prototype products like mobile phones or airplane parts. But now they’re emerging into the mainstream: You can buy one for about $500 to $3,000, and many enthusiasts, schools and libraries already have. Sometimes they print objects they design, but you can also make copies of physical objects by “scanning” them—using your smartphone or camera to turn multiple pictures into a 3-D model, which can then be printed over and over. Do you want a copy of, say, the Auguste Rodin statue Cariatide à l’urne—or maybe just some replacement plastic game pieces for Settlers of Catan? You’re in luck. Helpful folks have already scanned these objects and put them online.

As 3-D printing gets cheaper and cheaper, how will it change society? What will it mean to be able to save and share physical objects—and make as many copies as we’d like? One way to ponder that is to consider the remarkable impact of the first technology that let everyday people duplicate things en masse: The Xerox photocopier.

For centuries, if you weren’t going to the trouble of publishing an entire book, copying a single document was a slow, arduous process, done mostly by hand. Inventors had long sought a device to automate the process, with limited success. Thomas Jefferson used a pantograph: As he wrote, a wooden device connected to his pen manipulated another pen in precisely the same movements, creating a mechanical copy. Steam-engine pioneer James Watt created an even cruder device that would take a freshly written page and mash another sheet against it, transferring some of the ink in reverse. By the early 20th century, the state of the art was the mimeograph machine, which used ink to produce a small set of copies that got weaker with each duplication. It was imperfect.

Then in 1959, Xerox released the “914”—the first easy-to-use photocopier. The culmination of more than 20 years of experimentation, it was a much cleaner, “dry” process. The copier created an electrostatic image of a document on a rotating metal drum, and used it to transfer toner—ink in a powdered format—to a piece of paper, which would then be sealed in place by heat. It was fast, cranking out a copy in as little as seven seconds. When the first desk-size, 648-pound machines were rolled out to corporate customers—some of whom had to remove doors to install these behemoths—the era of copying began.

Or more accurately, the explosion of copying began. Xerox expected customers would make about 2,000 copies a month—but users easily made 10,000 a month, and some as many as 100,000. Before the 914 machine, Americans made 20 million copies a year, but by 1966 Xerox had boosted the total to 14 billion.

“It was a huge change in the amount of information moving around,” said David Owen, author of Copies in Seconds, a history of Xerox.

Indeed, it transformed the pathways through which knowledge flowed in a corporation. Before the Xerox, when an important letter arrived, only a small number of higher-ups clapped eyes on it. The original would circulate from office to office, with a “routing slip” showing who’d read it and where it should travel next. But after the photocopier arrived, employees began copying magazine articles and white papers they felt everyone else should see and circulating them with abandon. Wrote a memo? Why not send it to everyone? Copying was liberating and addicting.

“The button waiting to be pushed, the whir of action, the neat reproduction dropping into the tray—all this adds up to a heady experience, and the neophyte operator of a copier feels an impulse to copy all the papers in his pockets,” as John Brooks wrote in a 1967 New Yorker article.

White-collar workers had complained of information overload before. But the culprit was industrial processes—book publishers, newspapers. The photocopier was different. It allowed the average office drone to become an engine of overload, handing stacks of material to bewildered colleagues. “You’d have this huge pile of meeting documents,” Owen says with a laugh, “and nobody has read them.”

Copying also infected everyday life. Employees would sneak their own personal items on the machine, copying their IRS returns, party invitations, recipes. Chain letters began demanding participants not only forward the letter, but send out 20 copies—because, hey, now anyone could! And people quickly realized they could make paper replicas of physical objects, placing their hands—or, whipping down their pants, their rear ends—on the copier glass. This copying of objects could be put to curiously practical purposes. Instead of describing the physical contents of a perp’s pockets when jailing him, police would just dump them onto the 914’s glass and hit copy.

The bizarre welter of things being replicated made even the folks at Xerox worry they had unleashed Promethean forces. “Have we really made a contribution by making it easier to reproduce junk and nonsense?” as Sol Linowitz, CEO of Xerox International, fretted in Life magazine.

Yet for everyday people, replicating nonsense was the best part of the copier—an illicit thrill. Hiding behind the anonymity of a duplicated document, office workers began circulating off-color jokes and cartoons. Sometimes it was fake memos that savagely mocked the idiocy of office life—a “Rush Job” calendar with jumbled dates, so a customer could “order his work on the 7th and have it delivered on the 3rd,” or an “organization chart” cartoon that consisted of an executive being kissed on the ring by a lesser executive, who also has a lesser executive kissing his ring, and on and on. Jokes about the intelligence of various ethnic groups abounded, as did sexually explicit material. Eye-popping cartoons depicted the “Peanuts” characters having sex.

“There were these copies where you had a Rorschach blot and you had to fold it and hold it up to the light, and there were people having sex in more positions than you could imagine,” says Michael Preston, a professor emeritus of English at the University of Colorado at Boulder, who published an early collection of what he called Xerox-lore—the folklore of the copying age.

Artists, too, flocked to the device, thrilled by the high-contrast, low-fi prints it produced—so unlike either photography or traditional printing. As they showed, photocopying had an aesthetic. “When I show it a hair curler it hands me back a space ship, and when I show it the inside of a straw hat it describes the eerie joys of a descent into a volcano,” said Pati Hill, an artist who became famous for using a photocopier.

In essence, the photocopier was not merely a vehicle for copying. It became a mechanism for sub-rosa publishing—a way of seizing the means of production, circulating ideas that would previously have been difficult to get past censors and editors. “Xerography is bringing a reign of terror into the world of publishing, because it means that every reader can become both author and publisher,” Marshall McLuhan wrote in 1966.

This had powerful political effects. Secrets were harder to keep, documents easier to leak. Daniel Ellsberg used a copier to reproduce the Pentagon Papers (even having his children help make the replicas at a friend’s office). Fearful of the copier’s power, the Soviet Union tightly controlled access to the machines. In the United States, activists for ACT-UP—the group that fought to have AIDS taken more seriously by doctors and politicians—had a powerful impact in part because they had access to copiers. Many worked at media giants like Condé Nast and NBC, and after doing their work would run off thousands of copies of fliers and posters they’d use to plaster New York City for AIDS-awareness campaigns.

“They’d go in to do the paste-up for all these magazines, and then they would make thousands of posters and fliers that were so integral to what ACT-UP was doing,” notes Kate Eichhorn, an assistant professor at the New School who is writing a book about copiers. “These huge corporations were underwriting this radical activism.” This same force catalyzed the world of alternative culture: Fans of TV shows, sci-fi or movies began to produce zines, small publications devoted to their enthusiasms. The Riot Grrrl movement of young feminist musicians in the ’90s, appalled by mainstream media’s treatment of women, essentially created their own mediasphere partly via photocopiers. “Beyond its function as an ‘office tool,’ the copier has, for many people, become a means of self-expression,” said the authors of Copyart, a 1978 guide to DIY creativity.

But all that copying worried traditional authors: Surely they were losing sales if someone could copy a chapter from a book, or an article from a magazine, without paying for the original. Libraries and universities were hotbeds of so much duplication that publishers eventually took their complaints to the courts—and, in the ’70s, lost. The courts, and Congress, decided that making copies for personal use was fine.

“It was really a great moment in the late ’70s when it was a wonderful loosening of copyright,” says Lisa Gitelman, professor of English and media studies at New York University. These days, Congress is working hard­—often at the behest of movie studios or record labels—in the opposite direction, making it harder for people to copy things digitally. But back in the first cultural glow of the Xerox, lawmakers and judges came to the opposite conclusion: Copying was good for society.

There’s plenty of evidence that 3-D printing is good, too. Already many industries are using it to create sophisticated and highly customized products. Surgeons can create 3-D-printed bone grafts modeled off someone’s scanned body, and dentists are fashioning the wax models for crowns and bridges perfectly suited for a patient’s mouth. Chefs are experimenting with 3-D printing foods for aesthetic effect, and last November, astronauts aboard the International Space Station began using a 3-D printer to make a tool they needed.

But how might 3-D printing affect everyday life for the rest of us? It’s hard to tell right now, because they’re still slow devices—it can take hours to print a complex object—and even the cheapest ones are still too pricey for mass adoption. Most printers don’t come with a scanner attached, so using them for everyday duplication is still tricky. That may soon change, because large firms like Hewlett-Packard are entering the field—and chains like Staples are beginning to put 3-D printers in stores, giving people a Kinko’s-like access to this odd new technology. In a few years, getting a 3-D print or copy made might take only a few minutes and a few dollars at a store near you.

At that point, one can imagine hitting the Xerox 914 moment—when everyday people suddenly discover the pleasures of replicating objects. We might start scanning everyday objects that we often misplace—the battery-access covers on remote controls, crucial hinges or pieces of electronics—so that when things go missing, we can run off another copy. Maybe we’ll scan sentimental objects, like family jewelry, so that when future 3-D printers can affordably produce complex, metal forms, we can make highly realistic copies of these mementos, too. And maybe we’ll also use 3-D printers for practical jokes and pranks—printing rude objects we find online and leaving them on friends’ desks at work. We might get a new form of information overload: offices and homes crammed with too many weird, junky printed trinkets.

As with the photocopier, 3-D printers mean people will copy other people’s intellectual property. Websites where people share their 3-D models already have plenty of objects riffing off pop culture: You can print a chess set that uses the Minions from Despicable Me, or various Transformers-like characters. And there are subversive 3-D objects being printed and duplicated now, too—including the parts to make plastic guns that authorities fear can’t be detected in airport scanners. With 3-D printers, physical objects become just another form of information, to be traded and swapped, moving around beneath authorities’ eyes.

“With 3-D printers, once someone has scanned one item, everyone can have it,” says Michael Weinberg, a vice president of Public Knowledge, a digital-technology think tank. For now, the powers that be are withholding judgment. There have been only a few incidents of firms issuing legal warnings to people for making copies of their intellectual property. “We have not seen a total industry freakout yet,” Weinberg notes.

Even legislators haven’t regulated 3-D printers, realizing they have many potential good uses. One area that is starting to cause consternation, though, is those guns. It’s not illegal to make your own gun, but the ease of gun-printing—and the plastic nature of 3-D-printed weapons—has prompted a flurry of legislation. In December 2013, Congress extended the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, which requires weapons to be detectable in scanning machines. In practice, it likely means adding enough metal to a 3-D-printed gun that it shows up on, say, an airport X-ray machine. Maryland is considering a bill that would outright ban printed guns. Philadelphia passed one as well and, in California, the legislature passed a law that was later vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown. Our society’s reputation for copying and distributing edgy material precedes us, it seems—and is moving from the second dimension to the third.

Smithsonian Editor’s note: This story originally said that the mimeograph machine used “smelly ink.” In fact, that was the spirit duplicating or “ditto” machine.

This story also originally said that custom cookie cutters at Whisk could be ready the same day they were ordered. Currently, custom orders take one to two weeks to arrive.

Samsung introduces A3 copiers for SMBs in Singapore

Samsung introduces A3 copiers for SMBs in Singapore

May 15, 2014

By SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS SINGAPORE

Innovative printing technology increases business productivity and efficiency

Singapore – May 15, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Singapore unveiled its A3 mono and color copiers for the Singapore market. The MultiXpress CLX-9301 color series and SCX-8128 mono series are designed to deliver exceptional performance and efficient printing solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

“Singapore is a very strategic market for Samsung. The copier is an indispensable device for businesses of all sizes and the Samsung copier is evolving with the needs of our customers to enhance their printing experience by harnessing cutting edge technology,” said Simon Tan, Head of Print Solutions Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

Enhanced Performance and Reliability with Innovative CPU
The CLX-9301 series and SCX-8128 series are designed to enhance office productivity thanks to a fully integrated Samsung 1GHz Dual Core CPU, which enables documents to be processed up to 1.5 times faster than conventional copiers. The CLX-9301 color series can print between 20 and 30 pages per minute, whilst the SCX-8128 mono series can print between 23 and 28 pages per minute. The copiers can also handle multiple large documents from several users, while maintaining a higher print and copy speed.

Exceptional Color Quality and Image Clarity
Samsung’s unique Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (ReCP) technology was installed in the copiers to improve the overall print and copy quality with 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. It automatically sharpens the focus of both graphics and text. White gaps are also eliminated by overlapping solid objects.

In addition, Samsung’s polymerized toner enables users to print documents with crisp lines and vivid colors, allowing businesses to share high quality documents.

Advanced Solutions for Businesses
Samsung’s Business Core Printing Solutions (BCPS) is also available for the copier series. BCPS enables businesses to be more productive by enabling user authentication, usage monitoring, document processing and server-less pull printing. BCPS does not require a separate server, making it ideal for SMB customers without a large IT department or IT budget.

Samsung A3 copiers also support XOA (eXtensible Open Architecture), an open platform for Samsung printers and copiers. The XOA open platform can run various solutions developed by global Independent Software Vendors (ISV), in addition to Samsung’s in-house solutions. This provides businesses with the flexibility to incorporate a wider range of solutions, enabling SMBs to customize solutions depending on business needs.

Cost Efficiency 
Samsung’s A3 copiers maintain low overall energy consumption thanks to its innovative all-in-one board, which delivers a 60 per cent reduction in energy consumption. Further, Samsung’s polymerized toner consists of smaller toner particles which require lower fusing temperature so users save on power and costs.

Easy-Eco Driver is applied on Samsung A3 copiers to lower the toner and maintenance costs for SMBs by an average of 20%. Easy-Eco Driver allows users to preview the document before printing so they can modify or remove pages, fonts, or images without changing the original document. This saves on toner and reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

Sophisticated Design, Compact Size, and Intuitive UI
The CLX-9301 series and SCX-8128 series have been designed to maintain a clean and streamlined look within the office environment. Samsung has pioneered the eye-catching ‘Split in Interface & Box’ design that physically separates the printer interface and storage system by using different colors to distinguish these two sections to optimize usage for each. This unique design philosophy was acknowledged at iF Design Award in 2013 for “turning a mechanically complex printer into a simple design and showing how creative design adds value to a product.”

The user interface has been redesigned to enable simplified commands for ease of use. Users can slide and tap the device, similar to the controls on a smartphone. The 7-inch color touch screen panel is inspired by a smartphone screen and mobile icons provide an even greater intuitive user experience.

Users can also customize icons for scan and copy functionalities according to their personal or office environment. For frequently used functions, users can create up to 40 shortcut icons to enable ease of use by accessing the most popular functions quickly. A keyword search function has also been added for better user experience.

Samsung Polaris Revolution launch event
At the Samsung Polaris Revolution launch event, Samsung also announced the appointment of Docu ConneX as the authorized distributor of Samsung enterprise solution printers and copiers in Singapore.

Patrick Tay, Director of Docu ConneX, said, “Enterprise values speed, connectivity and efficiency. By collaborating with Samsung, we are able to offer quick and smart printing solutions that address business needs. We are the right partner for Samsung with our expert team of sales and technical consultants who have been supporting enterprises in their printing and copier needs since 2011.”

Simon Tan added, “With our new range of copiers and with the appointment of Docu ConneX as our authorized distributor, we are confident that we will be able to expand our footprint in Singapore to deliver superior printing solutions that enhances productivity and efficiency.”
