Remanufacturing the <strong>Samsung</strong> Xpress <strong>M3015</strong>DW<br />

<strong>MLT</strong>-<strong>D118</strong>S toner cartridge<br />

By Mike Josiah and the Technical Staff at Uninet<br />

The <strong>Samsung</strong> Xpress <strong>M3015</strong> series of printers are based on a 30ppm, 600dpi engine. The first page out is<br />

stated to be under 8.5 seconds, and all “W” models so far come with Wi-Fi, <strong>Samsung</strong> Mobile print, Google Cloud<br />

Print and NFC (near-field communication) features built in.<br />

All machines released so far come standard with 128MB<br />

memory and have a duty cycle of 12,000 pages per month. There<br />

are two cartridges in this engine - the toner (<strong>MLT</strong>-<strong>D118</strong>S/L) and<br />

the drum cartridge (<strong>MLT</strong>-R116). The standard yield toner (S) is<br />

rated for 1,200 pages, and the high yield (L) is rated for 4,000<br />

pages. The drum unit is rated for 9,000 pages.<br />

The toner cartridges come with an orange plastic<br />

protector on them. It’s highly recommended that you save and<br />

re-use the OEM cover until aftermarket covers become available<br />

(see Figure 1).<br />

them (rubber cement).<br />
