Apex stated that in late 2015, Samsung “released numerous printers” in its Xpress, MultiXpress and ProXpress ranges globally, which used the CLT-404 or similar cartridges, and machines included mono and colour laser printers and MFPs. Compared to the OEM’s previous 115 series, the 404 is said to have a “faster printing speed and a better printing experience”, with near-field communication (NFC), cloud and mobile connectivity.
The newly-launched chips “correspond with nine cartridge models”, including the MLT-D118, MLT-D201, CLT-403, CLT-404 and more, with Apex adding that the OEM chips “used a new technology with an advanced encryption algorithm, making the replacement chip design more difficult to develop”. In turn, Samsung’s chips are regionalised, so “more time and resources are used to post-test these chips”.
Apex’ research and development team “set a goal to develop a solution in just over 200 days […] successfully breaking through the technical obstacles” with the release of the replacement chips, which it notes is part of being “dedicated to helping customers to stay competitive and win new business opportunities”.
Among the features of the chips are that they are a “global first-to-market replacement chip solution”; that they are “multi-region universal” replacements; that they feature “OEM-like performance with fast speed [and] lower power consumption”; and that they utilise “advanced encryption techniques” for use in remanufactured cartridges”.
Machines that the chips can be used in include: the Xpress M3015DW; 3065; ProXpress M4030ND; 4080FX; SL-C3010ND; C3060FR; C3060ND; C435; C436; C485; SL-485FW; 486; 486FW; C430W; 430; 432W; 432; 433W; 433; 480FW; 480; 480FN; 480W; 482; 482FW; 482W; 483; 483W; 483FW; MultiXpress K3250NR; K3300NR; X3220NR; X3280NR; K7400LX; K7500LX; K7600LX; X7400GX; X7400LX; X7500GX; X7500LX; X7600GX; and X7600LX.
