Samsung introduces dual-scan technology on new line up

Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced a new line of A4 color multi-function printers. Intended for small, medium and large-sized offices, the new CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND models are built with dual-scan technology, which provides scans on both sides of a document at once, to scan stacks of documents faster. Every task is completed up to 1.5 times quicker, resulting in more time being spent producing and less time waiting.

The CLX-8640ND and the CLX-8650ND provide 1 GHz dual core processor and Samsung’s anti-jam technology, which allows users to keep printing without the need to stop and fix paper jams.

Both units are built for high reliability with lower total cost of ownership. With print speeds of up to 51 pages per minute (ppm) for the CLX-8650ND and up to 40 ppm for the CLX-8640ND, users are able to complete jobs efficiently without spending much on resources.

The CLX-8650ND and the CLX-8640ND both feature a large 7-inch touch screen that offers a smooth flicking and scrolling capability, similar to a smart phone, allowing users to accelerate their document workflow by changing the order or canceling print/copy/scan jobs. The touch screen also allows users to create shortcuts for the most-used functions.

The Samsung CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND MFPs connect to business applications through the eXtended Open Architecture (XOA) platform. Based on open standards, XOA allows third-party vendors to create embedded applications that enhance MFP capabilities, in order to improve business processes.

The CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND will be available in January, 2013. The MSRP for the CLX-8640ND is $6,947.46 and the MSRP for the CLX-8650ND is $8,340.12.

All Samsung printers can be found at select Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined by calling 1-800-SAM-4BIZ or by visiting For more information, visit or
