Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Office space is also a big issue. In general, A3 DMFP occupies more office space. Typically, the footprint of a mono A3 capable device is much larger than that of an A4 device. MultiXpress C8540ND’s economical design takes up to 75% less space in your office than general A3 DMFPs so you have more room around you.

Auto Colour Detection

Auto Colour Detection
The introduction of the MultiXpress C8540ND provides users with the inclusion of an additional 'Auto' option; users no longer have to rely on manually differentiating between 'mono' and 'colour' prints.

paper handling

- Adding optional paper trays can allow storage of up to 2720 sheets of paper at one time; this means a reduction in the frequency of refilling needed. - The 2-bin finisher and 4-bin mailbox supports a 1000 sheet output, making it much more efficient in a challenging office environment.

minimised paper jam or misfeeding

MultiXpress C8540ND uses a centre loading method with a retard roller. When more than one paper is picked up, even though it is few and far between, the retard roller rotates in the opposite direction to put back the additional paper. This mechanism can minimise not only the misfeeding, but also the paper jam ratio.
