editorial
Dear Reader,
The summer is in full swing. But the industry is not on vacations. Its rhythm is not the same as during
the colder part of the year, still there is plenty of news in store even in summer.
In this edition of our magazine we would like to present a number of outstanding technical articles dealing
with cartridge remanufacturing for Brother TN3170 and Samsung SF-560R printers. We also continue
the series of hands-on instructions for Toshiba copiers, which attracted a lot of readers with its precise and
detailed information. Since the repairs articles were so interesting to our reading public, the magazine will
keep on elaborating on printer and copier repairs issues.
In
this same issue of the magazine we offer you the possibility to get to know the Ukrainian company
Worldwide Manufacturing, E.D., one of the leaders in the Ukrainian aftermarket of imaging supplies and a
well known brand elsewhere in the region. We also offer you a material on toners as well as an overview of
techniques to reduce costs and boost profitability.

F
irst introduced in May 2008, the Samsung SF-560R engine is a Laser
based fax engine. These machines are fax only and come with a new
cartridge, the SF-D560RA.
Samsung created a very confusing issue here with very similar machine model
numbers. This has already proven to be very confusing to many people. The
problem is that the older machines in this series have models numbers of SF-560
and SF-565P. These machines use cartridge # SCX-4216D3. The new machines
have model numbers of SF-560R and SF-565PR and use a new and different
cartridge the SF-D560RA. Besides being physically different enough so they do
not fit into the other machine, the older SCX-4216 cartridge uses a fuse to reset
the machine, and the SF-D560RA cartridges uses a new chip.
Figures 1-8 show the differences between the two cartridges.
As with most Samsung cartridge, these cartridges do not have a drum cover, and
come new with a piece of heavy paper taped around the cartridge.
The standard cartridge (Samsung part# SF-D560RA) comes new with 90g toner,
and is rated for 3,000 pages at 5% coverage. The starter cartridges that come with
the machines however are only rated for 1000 pages.

5) On the front edge of the cartridge, there are two more tabs.
Press these two tabs in, and lift the cover off. See Figure 13

screwdriver. Remove the end cap. See Figure 10
13
10
CAUTION: The upper half of the toner hopper is being
removed. If there is a lot of toner left in the hopper, it can
dump out all over! Vacuum the hopper clean.
6) On the remaining end cap, remove the two screws. Remove
the end cap. See Figure 14

specialist guide
14
10) Remove the single screw on the PCR cleaning assembly
and gently pry the blade up. Note that there are not any
alignment tabs or posts to worry about. This PCR cleaner
also has what can be considered a wiper blade. It is a very
flimsy blade attached to the metal bar. Wipe this blade
down with a clean lint free cloth before re-installing. See
Figures 17 & 18
17
7) On the right side there is a series of gears under the end
cap. Make a note of the location of each gear, and remove
them. See Figure 15
15
18
8) Remove the PCR. See Figure 16
11) It is very important that the PCR cleaner be cleaned.
Vacuum or blow off any residual toner from the foam/felt.
12) With the PCR Cleaner Assembly removed, the drum can
easily be removed by lifting it out. See Figure 19
16
9) Clean the PCR with your normal PCR cleaner.
WARNING: Do not clean the OEM PCR with alcohol, as this
will remove the conductive coating from the roller. If the PCR
is an aftermarket, follow the cleaning methods recommended
by the manufacturer. If the PCR is an OEM, we recommend it
be cleaned with your standard PCR cleaner.

cleaned. Failure to do so can cause streaking. The Doctor
Blade can be cleaned without removing it. Dampen a cotton
swab with alcohol, and clean the blade. Be careful not to
press too hard and damage the blade. If the blade has a
heavy buildup of toner on it, clean it with Acetone, and then
alcohol. Replacement doctor blades are available if your

white lithium grease. Be sure to clean and grease the gear
shafts, and inside the gear.
20) Replace the roller plate and 5 gears. When installing the
plate, do the opposite of how it came out. Keep it towards

PRINTING A TEST PAGE
The best way to run test pages is simply to make a copy.
Take a printed page with both text and graphics, and run a
few copies.
MACHINE ERROR CODES
As with most of the newer Samsung models, the error
codes are all in English and are self-explanatory. The
biggest problems you will run into are paper jams, and

TOSHIBA the 60th Series
Analog Copiers – a Final
Analysis or Which are the Most
Common and Mind Scratching
Problems in These Machines
By VLADIMIR KAMENOV
A
fter the detailed analysis of the models included in the Toshiba’s 60th series
copiers, comes the time to study the most common but hard to solve problems. By
“hard” I mean that they are not necessarily explained in the service manuals, or
the book mentions some code but doesn’t explain the reasons that lead to it.
Eng. Vladimir Kamenov, PhD
One more thing – always remember that the service documentation of any copier is written
when the model was new. That is to say that the developers of the model didn’t have the
necessary feed back information about the model’s weak spots. When a machine is new, you
can stick to the manual. There is given all the needed data about the service life of parts, places
for regular lubrication and so on. However most of the troubles starts when the copier becomes
old – that is when the machine has made, depending on the model between 3 or 4 periodical
maintenance services (according to the recommended copy count at which to perform them).

The reality is that if a copier is not properly maintained, all sorts of weird problems may occur
and even the service manual won’t help you. My advice: always perform proper periodical
maintenance according to the rules I have given in the previous 4 articles about Toshiba copiers.
The useful thing about always following a strict routine when maintaining a copier is that you
get used to it and it is not a big effort anymore. Even more – the machine will “appreciate” it,
I guarantee you that.

One more benefit is that when you perform these operations correctly, you memorize all the
correct locations of parts, screws, wire connectors and harnesses etc.
From my experience I can tell you that is especially useful when you come to service a copier
that you don’t know. That is – you don’t know what the previous service repairs were and you
are not sure about their quality.

Believe me; I have seen all sorts of “weird” problems on machines I did not service from
new. The solution to most of them was simply to put every part in the machine on its original
location, to screw all the missing screws and to clean thoroughly the machine.

This was the description of the first group of copier problems.
The second group concerns problem that occur regardless of
the proper maintenance and periodically replaced parts.
These problems are not described in the service manuals.
They occur only after thousands and thousands of copies
made on a copier. In some cases even the manufacturer
didn’t think that a certain part would wear at all!

Normally this is a very reliable and tough small copier.
In my field experience I’ve had least problems with these
3
machines, even though some of them were overworked and
the copy count was well over 300 000 copies. Given proper
maintenance the consumable parts may live up to twice
their predicted life. However there are some problems with
these machines:
OPTICS MODULE
As shown on the pictures bellow, the optics module consists
of 3 carriages. Carriages 1 and 2 slide on a carriage shaft.
You should always check it and lubricate it if necessary.

the corotron wires glow in violet and if the assembly is
operating properly, there wouldn’t be arches from the
wire to the terminals. Be careful not to touch the assembly
during these checks.

Another problem is the C7 code displayed on the copier’s
display and the service symbol flashing. This is a fuser
temperature related problem. Often one would check the
fuser lamp, the thermo fuse and the thermistor, but they
will be all right. However the C7 code will still flash.
The explanation is that sometimes the copier simply
cannot reach the normal fuser temperature for the
predetermined time. The copier counts each failure and
when the count reaches 3, the C7 code is displayed. The
solution is to enter 08 mode and to set the C7 counter to
zero (code 89).
Another similar problem occurs when you remove the
registration assembly for cleaning. Often the auxiliary high
voltage terminal C, located on the assembly gets broken.
The effect is irregular and is visible as a faint and foggy
5
copy. The solution is to replace the terminal or to glue it or
to attach it with cable tie.
PAPER FEED PROBLEMS
Often after 100 000 or more copies, the copier experiences
frequent paper feed problems. Don’t hurry to change the
feed tires. These are so durable, that even after 400 000 copies
they are still like new. The problem is elsewhere. There are
two electromagnetic clutches A located in the registration
assembly. If the paper doesn’t reach the registration rollers,
you should clean or replace the feed clutch. You should also
clean the one way bearing B, located between the two feed
tires. Sometimes it sticks and doesn’t transmit the torque
from the electromagnetic clutch to the feed tires.

TOSHIBA 1550
As I mentioned in previous articles, this model is the most
loved and most hated among the service technicians. There
are so many problems with this model, but if you catch
them on time it is quite sure it will work for more than half
a million copies and more.
HIGH VOLTAGE RELATED PROBLEMS
Again such problems are present in the model as well. The
difference is that there the transfer/separation corotron

module is built pretty reliable. The problem comes from
the power supply terminal A, located in the rear of the
machine, under the corotron assembly. Again paper dust,
developer material and toner build up there, forming a
conductive layer over time and causing leakage to the
metal base of the machine. The result – copies with white
patterns all the way of the front and rear edge of the copy,
or put in another way – faint copies. The solution is only to
replace the terminal. The nail varnish won’t work here.

with these parts.
DEVELOPER MODULE
Finally we come to the notorious even dreadful module
of this machine. Most service repairs are done on this
module. Almost every part of it is prone to failure. We
will start with the construction of the module, shown
on the figure. It is important to note that the described

Another possibility is that some of the guides are displaced

DEVELOPER MAGNETIC ROLLER
After about 400 to 500 thousand copies this roller may lock,
causing all sorts of gear failure all the way to the main gear
drive in the main frame of the machine. The reason for that
is in the construction of the roller. It consists of a aluminum
sleeve, mounted via bronze bearing to a central axle. Inside
the sleeve, the axle consists of a metal rod and segments
of long magnets glued to it in a circular pattern. Over
time some of these magnets unglue them selves and fall
inside the sleeve, acting like edges and locking the relative
movement of the sleeve to the still axle. The only working
solution is to change the developer roller. This leads us to
the second problem:
LEVELER
Many technicians overlook the importance of proper
setting of the thickness of the developer layer on the
14
magnetic roller. In Toshiba copiers it is critical!!!!! The
thickness of the layer is specific for each model. For 1550
it is 0.45mm. The thickness is achieved by measuring
the gap between the leveler and the magnetic roller by
thickness plates:

The reason for that strict tolerance is that if you increase
the gap too much, the developer brush will reach the OPC
drum surface and polish it, destroying the photo sensitive
layer. Also the increased thickness will lead to increase
in the torque required to drive the module. This in turn
leads to excessive wear in the drive gears and tooth belts.
The opposite case – decreasing the gap too much may lead
to failure to form developer brush on the surface of the
magnetic roller at all.
drum and to prevent the developer brush from coming into
contact with the drum. If this happens the OPC drum will be
very quickly ruined by the scouring action of the brush. Sadly
this happens very often in these machines. For unknown to
me so far reasons these rollers wear (decrease their diameter)
after three or four periodical maintenance services and ruin
the OPC drum. One solution is to replace them often, but they
are quite expensive. Another solution is to produce them in a
machining shop from a more durable material.
MIXERS
LOW TONER CONCENTRATION IN THE
DEVELOPER MODULE
Another reason for increased torque needed to drive the
module is the developer mixers. Their role is to stir the
developer material in the developer container. They receive
torque through the drive gears of the module. However
part of them must be outside the module in order to receive
movement and the other part must be inside to actually stir
the developer. In order to achieve this seals must be used.
They are mounted in the side walls of the developer container.
After the seals there are bronze bearings on each side of the
mixers. After 300 000 or so copies these seals start to leak and
the problems begin. If you do not replace them immediately,
the space between the seals and the bronze bearings will
fill with developer material. The bearings are pushed away
and press the mixers drive gears into the side metal walls of
the module, causing it to block. Furthermore the developer
material acts like a grinder and can decrease the diameter
of the mixers shafts, which are in contact with the bearings.
Once this happens the mixers are no longer fixed and the
drive belt of the magnetic roller starts to loose grip.
In conclusion all of the drive gears and belts in the module
are endangered of excessive wear and failure. The drive
train is shown o the figure bellow:
18
The most exotic problem I have experienced with this
model is the faint copy produced by the machine, which I
determined was caused by a very low toner concentration
in the developer module. Sometimes due to power surges,
copiers tend to forget some of their critical adjustment values
such as the auto toner sensor output signal level. Usually
performing the auto toner sensor adjustment solves the
problem and the “add toner ” symbol disappears. However
sometimes there is toner in the toner cartridge. The auto toner
adjustment is made, the sensor itself is working properly and
again after several hundred copies the copier still shows the
add toner symbol. Upon inspection the developer material is
almost stripped off toner. The solution to this phenomenon
turned out to be a faulty toner cartridge. The drive shaft
through which toner is supplied to the developer unit was
blocked and the toner supply motor couldn’t rotate it. At first
glimpse, this was not so obvious, because the toner motor
has a preventive mechanism for just such occasions – drive
gear G26 has a failsafe spring into itself, which disconnects
the toner cartridge from the toner motor without causing
the mechanism to rattle. The construction of the supply
mechanism is shown on the figure:

These are another dreadful parts made from Toshiba. The

It Is Summer and, Probably, it
is Time to go Back to School!
RechargEast University summer courses in Bulgaria:
we start off with Bulgarian
T
his summer RechargEast Magazine accomplished
the idea of a summer school for professional and
new techs willing to improve their skills in
printer and copier maintenance. Having listened attentively
to the opinion of numerous techs from Eastern Europe
and CIS countries, complaining about certain lack of due
experience in printer and copier maintenance, our magazine
decided to fill this gap in knowledge out by organizing open
specialized summer courses.
To the organizers’ surprise one of the Bulgarian students
turned out to be a 20-year experienced tech from a local
company. Despite his expertise and experience, his words
to the question why the course had attracted him, were:
“…Thank you for organizing this course, which not only
allows to refresh your skills but also motivates to learn
from colleagues and trainer’. He also added the location and
time for the course were rightly chosen, which is extremely
important for studying and having a good rest.
The summer school for technical specialists opened its first
master-class on July 28 at 10 AM, when the first 14 students
from Bulgarian remanufacturing companies took their seats
in the class room.
Here are the words of Georgi Alexandrov, ATS Bulgaria, one of
the sponsors of the Bulgarian course: “We are pleased to have
been invited to sponsor the course. As a distributor of parts and
printing devices we are interested in the growth of the industry,
which can be only reached by professionalism of technical staff.
We are always ready to help new and existing techs by providing
supplies and information. I see a lot of new people at this course
and I will be glad to meet them and start partnerships…”
What is this whole summer school about? – you may ask us.
First, it should be noted the main objective of the summer
school is to offer a possibility of acquiring new knowledge and
practical skills in the area of printer and copier maintenance
as well as having a good rest on the Bulgarian picturesque
seashore. All courses are held at the beautiful village St.
Konstantin and Elena, which is located closely to Varna,
the pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea Riviera, famous for its
beaches, attractions as well as its active summer social life.
The summer school includes the complete course for copier and
printer maintenance and repairs, which is held in Bulgarian,
Russian, Romanian and Czech languages. The first course
in Bulgarian started on July 28. Besides its solely educational
purpose, this course even attracted sponsors - ATS Bulgaria
from Sofia and TNC from Plovdiv presented its advertising
materials and technical information to all the students.
Another pleasant fact of the course in Bulgarian was the
activity of local remanufacturing companies in recruiting the
students. Their offers were highly attractive and interesting.
Photos of the first day of the course in Bulgarian are
presented below. The students will have 4 more days. Upon
the successful completion of the course they will be awarded
certificates, stating their practical and theoretical skills.
A similar course in Russian will be held between August
25-29, 2008, in St. Konstantin and Elena, Bulgaria.

Non-interrupted Printing
It is difficult to imagine a large office without printing and
copying equipment as a lot of documents need to be printed
every day. Today businesses pay a lot of attention to the
print quality. Still, it is hard to believe any printing device
can work flawlessly for long. Almost anyone of us knows
that sometimes it is very frustrating that while printing
out a very important document to be urgently presented to
the management the printer either jams the paper or makes
long streaks all along the page or even refuses to turn on.
Such unpleasant situations may occur to any printing device
as there is no vendor nowadays, who could guarantee life
impeccability for its products.
When buying a printer even for home use, the client believes
the buy will diminish the number of problems. But in reality
it turns out the user is to become a specialist in printers as
he needs to understand what the problems with his printer
are. In office environment, the problem is more acute as
dysfunctions may happen oftener. In the worst case by falling
out of function a defective printer may cause workflow stops,
loss of money and time as well as clients.
Thus, Happy Print offers a solution to maintain constant
document flow in a company. The priority here is to offer a
complex approach. Customers transfer all printing issues to
the professionals of the company.
Now there will be no more lectures from service centers as to
how difficult it is to find and replace a part. There will be no
need to be worried about when to add toner or change fuser
film. Happy Print supplies its customers with all necessary
parts and service with a warranty that the customer will not
be facing future unforeseen delays in the document flow in
the company.
Happy Print announces that an agreement with their company
guarantees constant and uninterrupted printing and offers
the following options:
• The maximal time of repairs in the service center is 5 hours;
• The payment is one month after the service was accomplished;
• Fixed prices;
• Free delivery;
• Constant availability of all necessary parts and supplies;
• On-place repairs done by the company’s specialists all over the

VTT Ltd., Moscow, New Exclusive OCP Distributor
for Russia
After more than 10 years successful presence in the Russian
market, OCP GmbH (Hattingen) and VTT Ltd. (Moscow)
have signed on June, 18th 2008 an exclusive distribution
agreement for OCP inks for the territory of the Russian
Federation.

Static Control Engineers Describe Potential
Problems When Remanufacturing the HP®2600
Static Control engineers have identified numerous possible
problems for remanufacturers regarding the HP®2600. For
each of these potential problems a quick and simple solution
is usually available.
THE DESIGN OF THE HP®2600
Sergeij Khazankin, Development Director of VTT,
emphasized that OCP inks are for years a dominating part
of VTT´s range of inkjet supplies. “The decision for choosing
VTT as exclusive partner in Russia proves our excellent
experience with VTT over the past ten years”, Michael
Geiger of OCP confirmed.
It is important to note that many issues concerning the
remanufacturing of the HP®2600 are not necessarily
aftermarket product related or something done incorrectly in
the remanufacturing process. It may simply be a design issue
with the HP®2600.
When disassembling the HP®2600 the remanufacturer will
notice a number of unique features. A small mylar film is
mounted on the doctor blade and pointed toward the developer
roller, either above or below a black plastic mounting bracket.
Occasionally a second mylar blade can be found mounted to
the top of the doctor blade stamping. A piece of felt will also
be found above the developer roller sealing blade. These are
all preventative features that HP has put into place to aid in
the charge and movement of the toner.
Sergeij Khazankin, Development Director of VTT,
and Michael Geiger, Sales Director of OCP after
signing the co-operation contract in Moscow
Vera Korelova, Product Manager of VTT, and Ilia Farber,
Salesman of OCP, have designed a new strategy to approach
the Russian inkjet supplies market with an innovative
program, starting September 1st 2008. “With this new
concept, VTT and OCP will not only keep their leading
position for inkjet inks and supplies in Russia, but have the
tool to also gain new business and potential customers”, Ilia
Farber is convinced.
The excellent reputation of VTT and OCP within the hardcopy
supplies business is one of the keys to let the new strategy be
a great success. While OCP´s “inks of finest quality” are
famous for the superior print quality and performance, VTT´s
has an excellent network of nine own sales and support
centers and 16 sales representatives in all major regions of the
Russian Federation.
For details about VTT and OCP please visit the companies´
websites: www.vtt.ru and www.ocp.de
Prior to conducting any internal qualification testing on
COLOUR CARTRIDGES, including the CTL Replenishment
System™, Static Control recommends a new chip be installed.
Alternatively, a forced calibration, which is complicated, can
be done. Static Control recommends for simplicity the use of
a new chip.
When post-testing cartridges Static Control recommends
the use of a mule chip. A mule chip is a chip that can
be used numerous times for testing purposes. For more
information regarding qualification testing or post testing,
remanufacturers can refer to the Static Control website or
speak with the technical support team.
By following the technical tips below and Static Control’s
remanufacturing instructions, remanufacturers should be
able to consistently turn out a quality remanufactured
HP®2600 toner cartridge.
ADHESIVE CAULK
A small amount of acrylic-based adhesive caulk on the side
of the OEM hot melt of the wiper blade and on top of the
OEM hot melt on the doctor blade will help keep leaks to
a minimum. On the hopper it is recommended to bead the
adhesive caulk from the top of the developer roller end felt to
RechargEast Magazine, August’08| www.rechargeast.com | 39
news&events
the top of the OEM hot melt. Silicone-based caulk should not
be used: it out-gasses as it cures, and the fumes released can
potentially damage drums and clump and fuse toner.
FELTS
The end felts of the hopper and waste bin are important on
all colour cartridges. It is the felts that keep the toner from
migrating beyond the edges of the developer roller. If the felts
have a glossy and/or smooth appearance to them, the use of
a flat-blade screwdriver is recommended to “fluff ” them back
up. This will enable the felts to seal better.
DOCTOR BLADE GAP
Proper positioning of the doctor blade in the HP Color LaserJet®
2600 plays a critical role and, when set correctly, provides
improved image density and reduced backgrounding.
To assist customers with proper HP®2600 doctor blade
installation, Static Control offers an installation jig that
consistently applies even pressure across the entire width of
the doctor blade. This helps to minimise the risk of the doctor
blade wrinkling at installation.
Static Control’s gapping strip sets the precise position
between the doctor blade and the developer roller for
improved image density and significantly reduced
backgrounding. Remanufacturers will achieve the exact
same gap with each cartridge quickly and easily and see
improvements in print quality.
PROPER LUBRICATION
Yellow toner applied to the working edge of the wiper blade
will help lubricate the wiper blade during the initial drum
rotations of the remanufactured cartridge. Also, it should be
ensured that the wiper blade contact is not bent.
CLEANING THE DOCTOR BLADE
Proper cleaning of the doctor blade in the HP®2600 is critical
to ensure good print quality. Care must be taken while
wiping the surface so as not to damage or bend the corners.
Too much pressure or uneven pressure while cleaning the
doctor blade could cause print defects such as vertical streaks
on solid prints. Static Control recommends cleaning first
with 99% isopropyl alcohol, lightly followed with distilled or
de-ionised water and blow drying.
Note: After removing the toner build-up, the working edge of
the doctor blade will remain discoloured from the toner. No
attempt should be made to remove this discolouration or the
doctor blade could be damaged.
CLEANING THE PCR
Improper cleaning of the PCR can result in false backgrounding
or vertical lines. It should be cleaned with 99% isopropyl
alcohol to ensure all toner additive is removed.
40 | RechargEast Magazine, August’08| www.rechargeast.com
CLEANING THE DEVELOPER ROLLER
The developer roller must be cleaned only with compressed
air and a dry, lint-free cloth. If fluids are used to clean the
developer roller, the necessary surface texturing could be
removed.
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION OF THE WIPER
One contact joins both the PCR and wiper blade. The end
leading to the wiper blade, if damaged, can cause print
defects. To prevent damage, the contact side of the wiper
blade should be removed first. When reinstalling, installing
the drive side of the blade first, then laying down the contact
side will prevent bending of the blade contact.
Static Control engineers stress the importance of following
the remanufacturing instructions exactly in order to greatly
minimise any potential problems.

Lexmark Boosts Its Resell Base in the UK
On July 15, 2008, Tokyo District Court on Tuesday ordered
Oji Paper Co to pay damages worth 590 million yen to Seiko
Epson Corp. over its sale of a polluted land plot.
Seiko Epson bought 30,000 square meters of land in Shiojiri
in the central Japan Prefecture of Nagano from Oji in July
2000. The precision equipment maker later found that the plot
was polluted with toxic substances such as polychlorinated
biphenyl and dioxin. The firm had to depollute 8,300 tons of
soil. Polluted soil is recognized as a defect approving much

Recycling Cartridges is Not Enough
OEM
Ever since the first ink cartridges appeared at the market,
consumers have been complaining of high cost and the
waste that comes along with what seems to be an excessive
amount of packaging. Ink jet recycling companies have made
great strides in encouraging consumers to recycle their used
cartridges, which reduce the amount of waste that formerly
clogged landfills worldwide.
It’s common knowledge that paper and plastic have been
the biggest contributors to recycling programs due to
environmental laws. One thing that many people don’t
realize is that the recycling of plastic is quite an expensive
process. Because of the expense, many recyclable plastics
are shipped to less expensive facilities in Asian countries
such as Vietnam and China where prices are lower and
environmental laws aren’t as stringent. Out of the 90 million
kilograms of recyclable plastic collected in the UK, nearly 75
percent was shipped to China for processing.
Xerox to Launch New Products to Eastern European
Markets
Xerox Eurasia presented new products supposed for
Eastern European markets. Xerox WorkCentre 5016 is a
new monochrome MFU for A3 printing. It includes copying,
printing and scanning functions. Its main advantages are
acceptable price, easiness in use and service as well as a
number of acceptable functional possibilities.
The reasoning for recycling is still sound and the system has
improved dramatically through the use of environmentally
friendly inks. The advent of soy and vinegar inks has
contributed a great deal to the reduction of waste created
by the recycling process. In short, the new environmentally
friendly inks aren’t damaging to the planet and the adherence
to the plastic doesn’t create excessive waste. These inks
also apply to paper, as well. Previously, much of the paper
discarded couldn’t be effectively recycled due to the amount
of chemicals injected into the paper fibers. These newer inks
also eliminate a great deal of paper waste. These inks and
the overall reduction of waste have allowed companies to
compensate recyclers for their efforts.

SUPPLIES FOR YOUR PRINTER
O
ne of the leaders of the Ukrainian aftermarket of supplies for printing and copying
devices, Worldwide Manufacturing, E.D. was founded in 1993 as a manufacturer of
cartridges for dot matrix printers. At the beginning of the nineties of the last century
the dot matrix printing technology was the only printing means for Ukrainian users. The production
capacity of the company covered fully the insignificant market demand for dot matrix cartridges at
that time. Thus, from the first days of the company’s existence the team was faced a challenge of
penetrating other markets, such as Russia, in the first place. Components and raw material brought
from specialized plants in England, Germany, Japan and USA, ISO 9000 certified and tested in most
strict technological conditions, allowed reaching high quality of all the company’s products to be
sold at acceptable prices. This all gave WWM the chance of becoming a leading supplier in Ukraine
and a renowned brand abroad.
RechargEast Magazine grew interested about the success of this company from Ukraine. Markets
of post-soviet countries are not easy to conquer. For being highly competitive a business needs to
be multifunctional, with a clear final goal, future perspectives and dynamics in its development.
Worldwide Manufacturing, E.D. is such a business, which has an image of a reliable partner and
supplier in the country and abroad.

How Much Should
My Product and My
Service Cost?
Part three: Profit Increase
Nikolai Yakimchuk
In
the previous two issues we discussed
methods of forming prices for a product
or service. We touched upon such
aspects as the cost analysis and price formation for
the product. We also made an overview of the basic
calculation techniques to reach the optimal price for
the product. We also mentioned some other factors to
be taken into account while fixing the price.
1. reduce costs
2. increase price
3. develop and boost sales.
In this issue I would like to end the price formation
topic with a short overview of possibilities of managing
and reducing costs and expenses of your business.
Let’s speak about the second and third realms in
some future editions of the magazine and focus
closely on the first one – cost reduction.
Cost management and cost reduction represent an
urgent matter for a lot of companies offering cartridge
refilling and remanufacturing services. Sometimes,
costs rush out of control and eat up all the fruit of a
company’s activity. Working for loss is already from
the area of philanthropy.
First, I would like to tell that the utmost goal of any
business is to create profit. It is so, as the maximal
profit allows the company to keep afloat even if the
market is down. The organization and formation
of such a structure able to bring in constant and
growing profit has only advantages for the business.
Since our utmost goal is to boost profit, the question
comes how to do that? Usually, there are three realms
to action:
52 | RechargEast Magazine, August’08| www.rechargeast.com
Financial experts mention that increasing of each of the
three components by at least 1% (that is, reducing costs
by 1%, increasing price by 1%, boosting sales by 1%)
may bring about an increase of profit by over 3%.
Since profit always depends on cost management,
cost reduction without sales reduction or quality
deterioration allows boosting profits. This, in its
facts&opinions
turn, makes the business more competitive, flexible,
maneuverable… the list can go on.
policies of communicating via email or free Internetbased messengers (Skype, ICQ, GoogleTalk).
Let’s see what should be actioned for decreasing
costs and excluding unnecessary expenses:
7/ PURCHASES.
1/ ADVERTISING AND PROMOTIONS
Analyze your advertising budget and see to its output.
Once the money spent on advertising or promotions
bring in more sales and, logically, profit, go on –
everything is all right. If not, cut the budget and find
other means to promote your product or service.
2/ RENT
Do you pay fortunes each month for the rent of
your office? Do you use the office space effectively?
Ask yourselves these two questions. If your rent is
way too expensive and you do not use the space
effectively, finding a smaller office might be a way
out. Sometimes, it is wiser to buy an office. Buying
an office is an investment, whereas rent is a monthly
expense. When it comes to decide whether to buy an
office or not, it’ necessary to determine how much
the rent will cost for the same period needed to repay
the bank loan for the buy, should you need one.
3/ LOANS
It is not worth reminding that bank loans are the
money to use today and to return tomorrow with
interests. Installments and interests are fixed costs,
which are not welcome. The best way out is to get to
auto-financing stage with no debts incurred.
4/ PUBLIC UTILITIES
These kinds of costs are often disregarded. But they
have an unpleasant trend of eating up a large portion
of a company’s profit. Additional inside or outside
isolation could save heat in winter and save plenty of
money on heating and electricity.
Any purchase, be it raw material or parts, should be
well controlled. Sometimes, companies buy excessive
volumes for just future references. This material
is underused and, eventually, it brings in loss on
profitability.
8/ BUSINESS TRIPS.
Business trips are also to be paid attention to.
Reducing unnecessary or non-urgent business trips
on the company’s account is another possibility to
reduce costs.
9/ EQUIPMENT ACQUISITION.
Acquisition of expensive equipment – a car, for
instance – should be well conditioned. In this case the
price of the equipment should be as important as the
total cost of ownership (gas, repairs, insurance, etc.)
10/ PERSONNEL.
I hate telling this, but personnel pays are the most
expensive cost for any business. But this situation
can be easily solved in the very beginning when
only necessary and polyvalent personnel are hired.
It is better to hire a competent and, logically, more
expensive specialist, than several low-skilled people
unable to tackle and resolve the task.
To sum it up, the realms mentioned above are just
some prompts to take into account in order to manage
and reduce costs. But it does not mean your business
is that bad. Out tip is to analyze the situation in
your company into each single realm from above and
action only those, which need immediate response
from your end. RCE
5/ INSURANCE.
How much do you pay for your car’s or your office’s
insurance? Probably, it’s high time to review the
insurance and address insurance companies, who are
specialized in this field. These will be able to assess the
risk and offer lower installments for your insurance.
6/ PHONE.
Even in the era of the Internet, phone expenses are
still sky-rocketingly high for a lot of companies.
These costs could be diminished by integrating new

USING
the RIGHT TONER
Marius Dobra
ANMADO, Romania
It
is clear that it is not sufficient to
have only compatible equipment or
cartridge model mentioned on the
label of the toner bottle. The global aftermarket
of printing supplies has a great variety of toners
offered by a multitude of manufacturers. Along
with them there are plenty of labels. Still, labels
and tags tell us one thing, which is always
positive and easy to believe in. But an in-house
test lead by the specialist using the toner in his
daily remanufacturing and refilling activities is
the best way to see how much “compatible” the
toner is.
Here are some tips of what should be paid
attention to:
- The quality of the print. Three aspects should
be taken into account: the density of black zones,
capacity of reproducing distinctly different
levels of grey color and levels of backgrounds,
which is the background of the white zones on
the paper sheet.
- Thermical properties. You should also take into
consideration the degree of fixation of toner on
paper and its stability. At an easy rubbing toner
should not be peeled off or spread out on paper.
56 | RechargEast Magazine, August’08| www.rechargeast.com
A well formulated toner does not stick off and
does not leave traces in the fuser or on pressure
rollers of the printer after the use of at least one
cartridge filled with this toner. Despite the fact
the fusing temperature in printers differs from
60°C to 200°C as well as the speed of passing of
the paper sheet through the fusing unit and the
pressing rollers may be different, sometimes the
same type of toner named “universal” is used
for a number of different printer models. There
is no lying; this toner cannot be fixed properly at
different temperatures, speeds and pressures.
- Sustainability of the print. It is also important
that toner particles be uniform. The more
uniform the particles are, the more complex its
manufacturing process is and the higher the
final price would be. A non-uniform toner (toner
with powder, sand, stones) may produce images
with correct density on the first prints only. Later
the quality of prints worsens visibly, because
the level of powder, sand and stones in toner is
reached – when this stage is reached the printed
images become smeared and the black zones are
grayed. It is easy to identify non-conformity of
toner particles by comparing prints at various life
cycles of the cartridge (after first 500, 1000, 1500,
2000, 3000 prints).
facts&opinions
- Number of covered pages. For a cartridge it is important to pay full attention
to the number of prints at the 4-5% page coverage featured by the manufacturer.
Some specialists think that a simple filling of the needed toner volume into the
cartridge may solve the problem. It is an error! In reality, the number of printed
pages depends mainly on two factors – the capacity of toner transfer (a well
formulated toner is transferred on paper without too much residual quantity).
Second, the other important property is the specific weight of the toner. A
“heavy ” toner will have smaller volume, and with the same weight it will be
consumed much faster.
- Abrasive factor. In theory, toner particles should be spherical. In reality,
high-quality toners have oval particles. Cheap and low-quality toners have
uneven, bumpy and rocky forms. Such an abrasive toner will make scratches
on cartridges parts (OPC drum, develop roller, cleaning blade) or even on the
printer’s parts (upper fuser roller). This all may lead to premature use.
OVAL PARTICLES OF HIGHQUALITY TONER
ROCKY PARTICLES OF
LOW-QUALITY TONER
Last, but not least. Do not expect even high-quality toner to make magic for
you. Toner cannot cover or remedy defects or malfunctions of other cartridge
components, which are already defective.

Некоторые называют
ЭТО ЧУДОМ!
Другие говорят о научном подходе
к ценам на картриджи.
Но какая разница, как это
называть ...
Эти картриджи приносят деньги и отлично работают

Qualified with Static Control’s Odyssey® Toner.
Not qualified for HP®4000, HP®8100, and Canon® PX, SX and WX.
Prior to conducting any internal qualification testing on COLOUR CARTRIDGES, including the CTL Replenishment System™,
Static Control recommends a new chip be installed. Alternatively, a forced calibration, which is complicated,
can be done. Static Control recommends for simplicity the use of a new chip.
When post-testing cartridges we recommend the use of a mule chip. A mule chip is a chip that can be used
numerous times for testing purposes. For more information regarding qualification testing or post-testing,
please see the Static Control website or speak with your technical support representative.
