Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa, one of the country’s leading document solutions companies, has launched five new colour and five new monochrome A3 multifunctional printers that help organisations to streamline document management and digitise their business processes. The three new product ranges are the TASKalfa 6052ci colour devices, the monochrome TASKalfa 6002i series and the monochrome TASKalfa 3511i series.

The new multifunctional printers have print speeds ranging from 25ppm up to 60ppm and will also include features to better manage maintenance and replacement of consumables.

Davy Khonzani, A3 product manager, Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa, says: “Our ten new printers provide flexible information sharing hubs that meet the needs of businesses from real-estate agents and lawyers up to healthcare, finance companies and through to ad agencies that need high capacity printing and high quality finishes. We can support organisations who not only require printing from a wide range of desktop and mobile printers, but full integration with document management systems, including scanning, OCR-based conversion, and more.”

High-quality colour printing

The new TASKalfa 6052ci offers a combination of outstanding colour quality, high speeds and high-capacity document processing. The superb colour quality is thanks to their newly developed toner with a wider colour gamut and their 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print resolution, which is offered at full engine speed. It supports productivity with flexible paper-handling options and fast, economical and reliable printing. Users can also print on special paper sizes such as SRA3 (full-bleed edge-to-edge A3), banner paper, tab divider sheets and paper of up to 300 gsm.

An innovative toner technology with thinner and more homogenous coating enables improved and far more even light reflection, as well as improved colour quality. The new TASKalfa 6052ci series also impresses with significantly sharper images due to high resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, 2 bit depth (4,800 x 1,200 dpi).

For companies with demanding image quality needs, or particularly complex workflows, four of the new colour MFPs offer an optional Fiery print controller. The Fiery controller increases the quality of prints and improves RIP (raster image processor) speed, as well as taking document and print order management to a new level.

“With this product range, Kyocera is re-positioning itself in the area of professional colour printing and plays in the top league of colour printers,” says Khonzani. “The new TASKalfa 6052ci series can effortlessly fulfil even the highest professional colour requirements from demanding print users such as advertising agencies, graphic studios or high-performing copy shops.”

Efficient monochrome printing

With output and scan speeds of up to 60 ppm and 180 ppm respectively, the TASKalfa 6002i is a workhorse that keeps productivity flowing in medium and large sized workgroups. It handles heavy workloads with ease thanks to flexible, high-capacity finishing options and a paper capacity of up to 7,150 sheets. Its digital document management functions are quickly accessible via an intuitive, large colour touch panel. Sensitive documents are protected by a range of enhanced security functions.

Consumables management

Kyocera’s new TASKalfa 6052ci and 6002i series both feature a toner lock, preventing users from exchanging toners unless it is really time to do so. This has a positive impact on the TCO and the eco-friendliness of the new products. Kyocera was awarded a BLI (Buyers Lab) Pick of Summer 2016 Award for innovation for its reusable black toner feature. Companies can use an expired black toner bottle as a waste container, reducing waste generated, storage requirements for supplies, as well as downtime and service costs.

Document workflow optimisation

Through its managed document services and solutions, Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa can help companies get rid of the clutter by fully optimising their document management fleet and by using the functionality of the new TASKalfa series to streamline their document workflow. The MFPs offer dual scan document processors of up to 270 originals – when combined with one of Kyocera’s capturing solutions,  can help organisations to complete their digital transformation.

Small organisations – different needs

Two of Kyocera’s new MFPs, the TASKalfa 3011i and 3511i, have been designed to fulfil the needs of smaller organisations such as branch or satellite offices and small schools or institutes. These monochrome A3 MFPs offer the same user interface and security level as the TASKalfa 6052ci and 6002i series.

The TASKalfa 3011i, 3511i and 2552ci are launching in October 2016,  with the remaining range launching towards the end of the year.
