editorial

Looking at the current dynamics of the print market, we can see that OEM companies are undertaking some serious changes to their business structure. Given the unfavorable economic situation in Europe, the major OEMs announced lower than previously forecasted earnings, which sent their stock price downward. For instance, Lexmark and Xerox went that way. HP is also reconsidering the position of its print business in its infrastructure. Kodak, in its turn announced a complete redo of their approach to the print business. Last month the American company, which has already tried to reinvent itself with the launch of new printing devices, presented to the world with a lot of publicity and hype, renounced to the idea of competing with the other OEMs in the printer manufacturing market. Instead, Kodak mentioned it would focus on supplies, which are more profitable. This is a clear sign that Kodak may as well exit the print market altogether in the nearest future. These changes on the market are indications of a new era looming - the era, where OEM companies, facing economic and financial hardships, reevaluate their market positions, distribution channels, portfolio of technologies, partnerships. With the ultimate goal of staying profitable, they are looking into new ways to cut operational costs and identify areas of opportunity. With this in mind, we can expect them to become even more aggressive to the aftermarket. In this issue of RechargEast I invite you to learn more about the dynamics in the OEM segment of the market in our usual OEM section. In the company profile we are acquainting you with the Bulgarian company DM Consult. Finally, in the Facts & Opinions we continue the series of articles about the Russian print market.

Do not hesitate to forward all interesting materials resulted from your practical experience! We will publish them in our magazine with great pleasure. Materials can be submitted in an Eastern European language or in English to news@rechargeast.com. We also welcome PRs from Eastern European companies.

The practical part of the two seminars was dedicated to installation of CISS into new models of printers. The seminars were spiced up with a contest, during which the attendees were competing to assemble and disassemble toner cartridges, answer tricky questions from the audience and show their skills in selecting the right supplies for specific models of printers. In the end, all the attendees received certificates of participation.

Patent War in Remanufacturing Industry

Ms. Laura Fan Marketing Manager hhInnovative marketing expertise hhStrong brand and media skills hh8 years proven international experience with leading marketing groups within the famous listed company and printing industry. In the year of 2012, the debt crisis is getting worse as time moves forward. The popularity of Mobile Smart Devices also brings negative effect to the digital imaging industry. Consequently, sales recession on both hardware and consumables has inevitably happened to the OEMs – Lexmark, HP, Xerox etc. While the OEMs in East Asia like Canon and Epson are still suffering from the remaining effects brought by the 2011 Japan earthquake and water flood in Thailand, the adding effects caused by the appreciation of Japanese Yen, have all together created a large decrease in their sales revenue.

aftermarkets. However, remanufacturing is facing less suppression from the OEMs because of its vague definition in the industry. As the government and consumers are more and more concerned on environment protection, remanufacturing has been accepted by more and more users. The OEMs have been encouraging the consumers to return the used empty cartridges and then having them completely destroyed to ensure no profit is leaked to remanufacturers. However, most of the used empty cartridges can be reused and that action has wasted many of Earth’s resources.

The unfortunate situation has encouraged the OEMs to try everything possible to raise their profits. As the main profit pool of the OEMs is in the consumables, it has become the first place they put their attention to. However, the market split between traditional compatibles and OEM consumables has been remaining stable, and customer loyalty has remained high enough. As a fast growing business of the aftermarket, remanufacturing has forced the OEMs to speed up their action of protecting their own profits.

The remanufacturers choose to buy the used cartridges from the users so there are still empty cartridges flowing to the aftermarket. In this situation, Canon has reacted first and sued Clover, one of U.S’s biggest toner remanufacturer, and 28 other remanufacturers. Clover have managed to sell remanufactured cartridges in the past to avoid the dispute, but since the drum components they use are all newly made, Canon’s suit has extended to the whole remanufactured toner cartridge industry. Recently, most of the remanufacturers have been forced to settle with Canon even though they are offering more cost effective products and an effective way to protect the environment.

Admittedly, patent application and patent lawsuit is the most effective tool for the OEMs to suppress the

Apart from that, Lexmark has also issued letters to some American remanufacturers in June 2012, stating that since the empty cartridges they use to remanufacture are sourced from outside of the US; (importing empty cartridges first sold outside the US) they have violated the rule of recycling which is based on patent exhaustion. Lexmark provided alternatives to the remanufacturers – to challenge the lawsuit, or to accept the big fine. Even though one of the empty toner suppliers, Greentec, insisted that Lexmark was swashbuckling, many of the remanufacturers still chose to compromise. Besides, HP, Canon and Brother have all applied many patents related to remanufactured cartridges to suppress the remanufacturers. This is the indication that the remanufacturing industry will be facing a big challenge in the future. The above cases have alerted the industry that the old thinking of “there is no patent issue in recycling” has become useless. As one of the largest manufacturer of printer supplies, Ninestar has worked out countermeasure focused on “One-Stop Solution”. Ninestar respects the OEMs’ intellectual property; at the same time it has innovative R&D technologies and global legal team to protect the customers and their business. www.ggimage.com

Recycling Times | China

Historic Moments at CIFEX Recycling Times has successfully organized three events during September 23–26th: Conference@2012, CIFEX|RemaxAsia Expo and iPrint Expo. Conference@2012 brought 192 delegates in the printing industry, from 15 countries, to jointly discuss the possibilities of next-stage developments. The new wave, new generation, high quality and low cost LED printer is said to become the winner over traditional laser and inkjet print technologies for the next 50 years. Digital printing, though a small fraction of total printing, is rapidly growing. Managed Print Services (MPS) becomes a more and more popular solution for end users under the current harsh economic environment. What's worth mentioning is that, remanufactured consumables are growing at a two-digit rate annually in China, demonstrating increasing popularity and recognition among consumers. Also for the first time ever in China — a historic moment — OEMs and the aftermarket sat under the one roof and shared views on issues that concern both parties. It suggests both are prepared to recognize each other and are willing to participate, educate and inform each other in a more civil manner. Straight after the conference, came the 6th CIFEX|RemaxAsia Expo and the 1st iPrint Expo at Zhuhai Air Show Center. The event attracted almost 10,000 visitors around the globe to tour 425 exhibits. It's encouraging to hear many visitors appraising the size of the scale — the largest ever trade show for the print consumables industry. Some outstanding highlights made the show glow: the never-seen-before creative booth designs, innovative products, thought provoking seminars, "patent safe" discussions, factory tours, print services and product diversification, etc. iPrint Expo, The first digital press and commercial printing show was held in the same venue as CIFEX|RemaxAsia Expo. It included pre-print, digital press and finishing equipment as well as supplies and consumables for printers and copiers. Forecasters say digital press and commercial printing market will grow 14% annually in China, twice as fast as the 7% average growth in other Asian regions.

news Xerox

Xerox Launches MFP and Printers Geared for SMB's Small and medium sized companies considering IT investments should answer three basic questions: how will the technology be used; how will it improve business; and how will it move business forward? According to Xerox, these questions are often overlooked, but when addressed, can give small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) confidence in their IT decisions. Products such as the new Xerox WorkCentre 6605 Color Multifunction Printer (MFP) help SMBs make the most of an IT investment with features that make it easy to produce, share and protect the documents that power business. SMBs looking to simplify everyday work tasks can do so with the WorkCentre 6605, including faxing expense reports and scanning HR forms. The MFP can also produce colorful sales materials, such as brochures, fliers and presentations, to support new business efforts. Engineered to fit almost anywhere in the office, the device's small footprint is a plus for businesses with space limitations. Other benefits to SMBs include: Simplified information. Scanned files can be automatically shared via email or network folder, or saved directly to a USB memory device for true portability. Document protection. Secure Print requires a personal identification number for users to release documents. A front-panel PIN code authentication also protects access to device features. Wireless and easy to use. An optional wireless adapter makes access available anywhere in the office, and a large color touch screen makes for simple navigation; users can view everything from documents in the queue to toner levels. 38

Speed and efficiency. A 550-sheet paper tray, printing up to 36 pages per minute (ppm), means less time at the printer and more time spent on business. The WorkCentre 6605's built-in color technology, including Pantone Color and True Adobe PostScript 3, can amp up a business' promotional efforts with professional-looking marketing materials. Also, with Xerox's oil-free EA Toner and Photo Mode, images and graphics stand out with richer, life-like colors, even on ordinary or recycled paper. "SMBs who want to maximize their IT investment will find the right combination of print quality, affordability, reliability, and ease of use with these devices," said Ann Priede, vice president, Publications and Services, Photizo Group. The Xerox Phaser6600 Color Printer, which shares the same print engine, accessories and supplies, is also available.

Kodak

Kodak Quits Printer Business After spending millions of dollars on creating a whole new line of business in desktop inkjet printers, Kodak made the decision to quit this market. There will be no more new Kodak printers as the company decided to quit this market The struggling printing and imaging company said that it would shift its focus in 2013 on ink sales to printers it has sold, the most profitable part of that business, and stop selling printers, where competitive forces narrow margins considerably. Kodak also said it was asking federal bankruptcy court for more time to put together a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan. Such plans, which ultimately have to be approved by the court, spell out how a reorganized company will operate after bankruptcy and what steps it will take to make creditors as whole as possible. According to Kodak, it is seeking a February 28

deadline. That raises the likelihood that Kodak's much-repeated intention to get out of Chapter 11 early in 2013 won't happen. Since filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in The January, Kodak has made a number of changes to its business to raise money and cut costs, from shutting down its digital camera business and selling its online Kodak Gallery operations. The company currently has a variety of other business lines up for sale, including document scanners and still camera film. It has laid off 2,700 people worldwide so far this year, and said it plans to lay off another 1,200. The company has long talked about profits in desktop inkjet printers being in so-called consumables, such as the ink, and Kodak says that getting out of the printer business "will significantly

newly launched MB451 from Oki improve cash flow in the U.S. beginning in the first half of 2013." The inks used in Kodak's desktop inkjet printers are manufactured at Eastman Business Park. The shutdown of the printer line points to a major and abrupt shift in Kodak's business plans. In recent years, Kodak has continually pointed to desktop inkjet printing -- along with commercial printing, packaging printing and printer workflow software -- as the four legs that would be its foundation in a postfilm, digital world.

New Digital Horizons from Epson During his visit to India, Epson's President, Mr. Minoru Usui, gave an interview to a local media portal. Here we are publishing some excerpts from the interview, where Mr. Usui talks about his company's plans in the printing space: Question: Traditional print industries are declining in growth, digital publishing is steadily increasing. As a printer manufacturer, how is this trend affecting you and the industry? Answer: The volume of output from commercial digital printing will grow by 400% from 2010 to 2015. Epson’s Micro Piezo technology provides high speed, high reliability, and is kind to the environment. We have already started to leverage these advantages by creating printers for applications such as outdoor signage, commercial photo printing and packaging labels. We therefore believe we are well placed to take advantage of the shift to digital printing. Printers using Micro Piezo technology are ideal for on-demand – printing exactly the right amount at the right time – printing, which we believe will continue to expand. Q: Is there an increased pressure demanding printer manufacturers to produce greener printers with minimal environmental impact? A: Yes, over the years we have taken a variety of measures to make our products greener including removing potentially harmful substances, making them easier to recycle and reducing their energy use. In recent years environmental concerns have become especially become important in the office, and we have launched a range of business inkjet printers that have considerable environmental advantages over laser printers, including using around 90% less electricity. In commerce too, for exam-

Minoru Usui, President of Epson ple, our SureLab product is aimed at high street commercial photo shops. This product eliminates the harmful chemicals used in conventional analog photo printing processes. Q: How do you manage to come up with interesting printer technologies, such as water-proof and smudge-proof Durabrite ink? A: The start point always has to be the market. There’s no point in making great products and technologies that nobody wants. It’s essential that we research carefully what our customers want, and create a product that meets – or hopefully exceeds – their expectations. One of Epson’s advantages is its ability to create new products and technologies from the ground up. Once we have determined what the market needs it is up to our engineers and scientists to create it. Q: How will the printer industry shape up in the next decade? A: First, I believe we will see the steady expansion of inkjet printing in the office. Inkjet offers advantages over lasers in terms of running costs, first

print out speed, and energy consumption, and it is Epson’s task to make customers aware of the fantastic business inkjet printers we offer. Second, as on-demand printing expands, we will see an acceleration of the shift to digital printing in commerce and industry. As mentioned above, Epson will step up its efforts to provide products that address actual needs in these areas. Q: Tech brands seldom sponsor football teams. Why then did you decide to partner with Manchester United? A: We want to raise our brand profile through an association with another like-minded global brand and bring ourselves closer to customers in our core markets. We believe we have much in common with the club. As global brands, we both share a vision to excite and inspire fans and customers, dedicated to seeking success and to exceeding expectations. We both believe in giving something back to society and have a strong sense of community and social conscience. We are also both global brands that transcend national and linguistic boundaries, and want to bring people together. Source: ThinkDigit.com

CANON GEAR PATENTS ®

WHY REMANUFACTURERS WORLDWIDE SHOULD TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY

Thank you for allowing me a few minutes to speak with you about the very serious threat facing all genuine laser and ink jet cartridge remanufacturers worldwide.

in plastic injection molding equipment, additional personnel and time devoted to system testing, we now have fully functional gear solutions that eliminate the risk of infringing Canon’s patents.

In July 2010, and again in January of this year, Canon® took legal action against manufacturers, remanufacturers and resellers of aftermarket cartridges that use OPC drum drive gears they believe infringe two of their patents. At issue is the twist feature that is being used on 23 different OPC drums in Canon and HP® laser printer cartridges.

Our gear designs have no twist and no slant and this is critical to eliminating the potential to infringe Canon’s gear patents. In order to show you how serious Canon is about protecting their patents, let me simply quote directly from their latest press releases: “Throughout the development, sales and marketing process, Canon respects the intellectual property of other companies and individuals and expects others to similarly respect Canon’s intellectual property rights. Canon remains committed to pursuing legal enforcement against those who do not respect Canon’s intellectual property.” Ed swartz

Industry analysts estimate that 60 to 70 percent of all remanufactured laser printer cartridges sold today use gears with a twist design. This means there are millions of remanufactured cartridges sold each month using a gear that Canon believes infringe their patents. I instructed my engineers and legal team to develop a different, fully FoundEr & CEo Static Control takes all patents functional gear design that would statiC Control extremely seriously and, like eliminate any risk of infringing Canon, we respect the intellectual property of Canon’s gear patents. We were successful in this other companies and individuals. We are therefore redesign and filed for our own patents in July of moving to our patented gear solutions as soon as 2007. We received our first gear patent in October possible and I strongly urge you do the same. 2010 and a second gear patent in December 2011. After an investment of thousands of legal and engineering hours and many millions of dollars

Thank you very much for your time.

Static Control will ONLY sell to genuine cartridge remanufacturers. We will not sell to new build compatible ink and laser cartridge manufacturers.

DM Consult Bulgaria Quality Service and Attention to Clients’ Needs are Key Factors in Retaining Existing and Getting New Clients

D

uring our recent trip in Bulgaria, we got an invitation from the Sofia-based company DM Consult. We gladly accepted the invitation and, on a sunny September day, showed up at the door of their office, where we were greeted by Yordan Murdzhev, the company’s head.

During our visit, we had the opportunity to ask Yordan and his team about the company’s history, its current state and plans for future. In this article we are going to give a short version of our discussion with DM Consult’s team.

Yordan Murdzhev 50

company RechargEast: Yordan, would you tell us how you started your company and what made you enter the market of printing supplies? Yordan: DM Consult started its

activity in 1999. At that time we focused more on IT supplies and services geared to small and medium businesses. In 2006 we made a shift into the printing market as we decided to focus solely on remanufacturing laser cartridges and refilling ink cartridges. RechargEast: How did this business grow over the years? What were the main milestones in your companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development in the field of printing supplies? Yordan: In 2006 we launched into the new enterprise for us - printing

supplies. We added the refilling/recycling service as well as copier/printer maintenance to our offer. As it usually happens, the beginning was relatively difficult as there were a lot of players at this market in Bulgaria. Hopefully, due to friends and colleagues working in the field for many years, we were able to find an optimal way to establish ourselves as a serious and reliable company. The start was really smooth as we rolled out new and new services. At the same time we were still afraid to widen our scale and reach out to bigger clients, as we felt we were too new at the market. What happened next was a training organized by RechargEast Magazine in 2008. During the course held in Varna we learned some useful techniques and acquired new skills. This course also helped us a lot to build new relationships with more local and international companies, with who we

profiles

maintain friendly and collaborative relations until now. On the other hand, participations in such events allowed us to reassess our potential, skills, knowledge as well as establish new rules and norms in regards to the technical process and quality of the service. These were the first steps for us to start approaching bigger clients as we were now fully confident in being able to meet up their expectations and work up to their standards and requirements. What we did after was to start importing supplies and raw materials from abroad on our own. Here I would mention the Polish company Biuromax, which helped us build our image through supplying competitive and high-quality products. This paved the way for us to diversify the range of our services at very competitive prices.

profiles

RechargEast: Could you give us more details about your current state? How do you identify new opportunities? Yordan: From 2010 onward, our

business is focused only on toner and ink cartridge recycling as well as printer and copier servicing. During these years we understood that, in terms of printing devices and supplies, each client has their own unique needs. This is why we do extensive research before recommending solutions to our clients. After, we sit together and discuss the ways to meet the clients’ objectives. We are believers in direct contact since all details and elements can be explained orally and shown visually. We pay a lot of attention to our clients’ direct and indirect needs, follow up on them and do our best to provide a solution. Even if it is a small gesture, small things 52

make a whole difference. Over time we get back to our clients and seek feedback on our work, products and services so as to improve our offer. Such attention does help have good results - this is the first step to create long-year relationships. RechargEast: What makes your company a reliable partner? Yordan: In our market there are many companies offering similar services. But not all of them can offer high quality in everything they do. During the last years we invested a lot in equipment so that to serve our clients in a better, quicker and more efficient way. We also lay a lot of emphasis on environmentally friendly solutions in our working process. Each recycled cartridge passes through at least 7 tests before it’s given back to the client. We offer extensive warran-

ties on our products. We also offer full maintenance for our customers’ printing fleet, which makes their life much easier - they do not need to look for people to service their printers or copiers, any more. We, thus, save their time and money through providing all services under one roof. We had witnessed cases when internal departments in a company pass the responsibility for printing devices from one to another without actually solving the issue. We are out there for them to unload this pleasant task. RechargEast: What are your immediate plans for this and coming years? Yordan: In 2013 our efforts will

be focused on keeping our existing customers through our high-quality work. We are also working at acquiring new clients even though it is relatively difficult to find them now.


company

RechargEast: What is your most important achievement so far? Yordan: First, we happy we were able to get some big clients from the state sector. We have been working successfully with them for years now. The success is measured by the number of referrals that come to us from them.

Second, we were very proactive in shifting our business into the direction of printing supplies, which helped us focus all our efforts to develop into this new area. RechargEast: Are there any features that distinguish your company from the competition? Yordan: I would not say there are

extremely big differences between our competitors and our company. All of

the companies in the market go to the same goal - some through high quality service and products, some through cheap products and bad service. We preferred the first path even though it is hard. Still, we believe that it is rewarding despite any hardships on the way. RechargEast: Who are your partners? How do you choose your partners? Yordan: In the very beginning a number of companies like TNC helped us get up and stand solidly on our feet. Over the last years we also developed partnerships with ATS Bulgaria and Freckles Ltd. These partners proved to be reliable, which is the main criteria for us in our choice.

profiles

Yordan: I would say that the local

aftermarket of printing supplies has improved greatly since the economic crisis from two-three years ago. Because of the worsened economic situation, some of the garage and home-based “recyclers” disappeared. More large companies decided to turn to the aftermarket in search for costefficiency. Aftermarket companies, in their turn, brushed up on their offer and service quality. There are surely more things to do, but the trend is already positive.

Russia's Market of Laser Printer Supplies in 2011 and 2012: Most Popular Cartridges T

he below market information was presented during the BusinessInform 2012 expo held in Moscow in June 2012. This market data was taken from a detailed report based on the market research performed by the Russiabased research agency Business Inform [sforp.ru]. The first and second parts of the data were presented in the August'12 and September'12 issues of RechargEast Magazine. In this issue of the magazine we are focusing on the most popular models of laser cartridges in the Russian market in 2011-2012. As mentioned in the previous issue of RechargEast (September'12), the Russian market of printing supplies saw a drop between 2009 and 2010 because of the decreased number of equipment shipment in 2008-2009. The main drop in terms of supplies occurred in the refilling segment, which is again justified by the reduced spend on printing, especially in the low-end part of the laser printing market. Compatible cartridges represented the only segment showing constant growth despite the economic downturn. This is mainly due to the low market share of these cartridges during the pre-crisis years. With their low price, this type of cartridges was getting a lot of traction during the years when the market turned to more cost-efficient printing solutions.
