Kyocera Document Solutions SA has introduced a range of colour A4 multifunction printers that it says delivers levels of quality, reliability and performance usually only found on more expensive A3 machines.
The three new additions to Kyocera’s Taskalfa range, the 406ci, 356ci and 306ci, have respective print speeds of 40ppm, 35ppm and 30ppm and come with up to 1200 dpi for the best quality document output. They are aimed at workgroups and departments which require the highest levels of functionality and paper handling, combined with reduced upfront costs and low running expenses.
They are aimed at small to large workgroups who use a colour A3 MFP because of the functionality, yet print on A4 most of the time. The new range offers up to 3100 sheet paper tray capacity, double sided printing, scanning, copying and faxing, and full finishing options. Thanks to their fast output, scanning speeds and finishing versatility, the new MFPs boast high productivity, with all key functions being easily accessible using an intuitive menu on a large touchscreen.
“Our new A4 colour multifunctionals are ideal for workgroups and departments who have tight IT budgets, yet need high-capacity printing and advanced finishing options,” says Brandon Zabielski, hardware product manager at Kyocera Document Solutions SA. “SMMEs, educational institutions, legal firms, and the hospitality industries are just some examples of the type of organisation that will appreciate the functionality, affordability and flexibility of these MFPs.”
Kyocera provided the following information:
The new Taskalfa 406ci and 356ci combine the high volume capacities and advanced paper handling options of larger devices with the easy installation, footprint and flexibility of a more compact MFP. “Their exceptional functionality streamlines document processes, while vivid, high-quality colour printing adds value to your business,” says Zabielski.
