Kyocera Document Solutions UK has today announced the launch of five new high-performance workgroup A4 colour multifunction printers (MFPs) and two workgroup A4 colour single function printers. Six are from Kyocera’s ECOSYS series: the ECOSYS PA3500cx and PA4000cx, and ECOSYS MA3500cix, MA35000cifx, MA4000cix and MA4000cifx. The seventh is the latest addition to the TASKalfa suite of devices, the TASKalfa MA3500ci.
These MFPs have been developed to meet the needs of busy workgroups, while ensuring consistent performance, low running costs, reduced energy usage and enhanced security. All of the devices are delivered carbon-neutral as standard and incorporate Kyocera’s long-life ceramic drum technology, to drive down total cost of ownership (TCO) and help businesses embrace sustainable printing.
The new devices can print at speeds between 35ppm and 40ppm, and all MFPs are equipped with dual scanning document feeders that allow for fast digitisation of documents, and two come as standard with fax functionality in addition to colour copy, print and scan functionality. The MFPs include a tablet-style user interface that makes the printers easy to use and allows for straightforward integration with document workflow solutions.
All the devices feature Kyocera’s award-winning K-Level security, the company’s highest firmware level of security. Awarded the Keypoint Intelligence Security Validation Testing Certificate in 2022, K-Level ensures the printers have the best possible endpoint protection in place.
Martin Fairman, group sales and marketing director at Kyocera Document Solutions UK, said: “These A4 colour ECOSYS and TASKalfa printers and MFPs are the perfect fusion of performance and security. Their launch means we add yet another suite of devices that are sold carbon-neutral as standard and have our top K-Level security onboard.
“It’s crucial that we highlight the sustainable credentials of our products – the latest Quocirca research shows that 65% of channel partners’ customers are most interested in energy efficient hardware (Quocirca, 2023). These new devices comply with the latest environmental standards, are ranked EPEAT Gold and have enhanced power management which reduces standby power in ‘Sleep Mode’ to just 0.5W.
“Kyocera is known for its ceramic technology and long-life consumables. This makes our ECOSYS and TASKalfa products incredibly durable and reliable, resulting in less waste throughout their lifetime, and satisfying the second and third customer areas of interest in the Quocirca study.
“The devices will meet a diverse range of customer needs and are ideal for workgroups of all sizes, in both the private and public sector.”
