Samsung launches new SMB printing solutions in Singapore

Samsung Electronics Singapore has unveiled A3 monochrome (mono) and colour copiers for the Singapore market. Although termed 'copiers', the machines are multifunction printers which scan, copy and print. 

“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.

The MultiXpress CLX-9301 colour series and SCX-8128 mono series are designed to deliver exceptional performance and efficient printing solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The CLX-9301 series and SCX-8128 series 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 colour 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.

Samsung’s Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (ReCP) technology has been installed in the copiers to improve the overall print and copy quality with 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution. It automatically sharpens the focus of both graphics and text. In addition, Samsung’s polymerised toner enables users to print documents with crisp lines and vivid colours for high quality documents. The toner consists of relatively small toner particles which require a lower fusing temperature, so users also save on power and costs.

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.

"The feedback from our partners was that customers normally have to pay thousands for this capability," said Tan of the BCPS. "It's all embedded, you don't have to install software on the server."
Samsung’s A3 copiers maintain low overall energy consumption thanks to its innovative all-in-one board, which delivers a 60% reduction in energy consumption. 

An Easy-Eco Driver is applied on all of 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.
