MATERIALS: Samsung Electronics has partnered with custom thermoplastics compounder RTP Co. to upgrade color printer components and reduce operating noise. Multiple RTP Co. wear-resistant and structural compounds were used in replacing various moving components, including the engine’s paper feeding roller, fuser gear, roller shaft and cartridge lever. With this application, Samsung received cost-effective help from RTP Co. by choosing materials with multiple properties to enhance their printer components. Their engineers utilized five different materials that all provided multiple property solutions, including high temperature, wear resistance and structural reinforcement, which ultimately added significant benefits to their printer engines.
