Samsung Makes Printers and Ink Cartridges in Addition to Mobile Phones

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Samsung? Probably mobile phones. But today, we are not going to talk about the mobile devices that seem to form an integral part of our daily lives. Samsung actually started out by selling noodles! The company that sells millions of phones and other electronics today was actually a noodle company. The first electronic item they sold was not even a phone. It was a black-and-white television in 1970. In 2016, they created their first virtual reality rollercoaster. Their innovative thinking also extends to their printers and ink cartridges.

Samsung Printing Industry Facts

  • In 2013, Samsung won 39 awards for a variety of their products. That is not all – they won a gold award for their CLP-415 series A4 colour laser printer at the iF Design Awards in Germany.
  • They won another Gold Award in 2013 for the Mate Printer. The printer was designed to be totally recyclable and eco-friendly. Is it not amazing when large corporations are friends of the environment? Not only do they deliver superb products that make our lives easier, but they try to keep their environmental footprint to a minimum. The exterior of the award-winning printer is made of corrugated cardboard.
  • Samsung has introduced a printer that can play music while printing. A menial office job such as printing has never been as exciting as it is now. It is called the Indie Printer. It does not only play music, it even charges your phone.

All these printers created by Samsung use different ink cartridges, which can be bought at your nearest Cartridge Hyper, at very competitive prices.

What Goes into Modern Ink?

If we want to know how we get ink, we first need to know what it is. Ink is a semi-liquid substance that can be transferred to paper or other media. The first printing ink was made with soot, which is coloured earth and plant matter. The Chinese invented this type of ink a long time ago. Later, varnish or linseed oil was added to the mixture. It is not far from how modern black ink is made. In the late 1700s, coloured ink was first introduced. Ink was not yet perfected then, and it was only in the 1800s that drying agents were added to get the best results.

Printer ink can even be broken into smaller parts, namely digital non-impact ink and conventional ink. Digital non-impact ink includes inkjet and electro photogenic technology, while conventional ink uses a metal plate that transfers the picture to paper or another surface. Though all the above is interesting, today’s printer ink is made of a different substance. We call it carbon black. It is similar to the soot that was used in the old days. We can explain all of the additives to you, but suffice to say that it is far easier to buy the ink cartridges from Cartridge Hyper than trying to make your own ink. Besides, buying Samsung ink cartridges is the first step towards getting quality prints every time.
