Kyocera has recently upgraded its entire Ecosys and Taskalfa printer and copier lines in both monochrome and full color. Speeds range from 21pages per minute up to 80, and the new, smaller footprint, designs feature many innovative features and all the latest technology.
Kyocera has chosen the HyPass brand name for its suite of over 60 various applications including advanced scan, file, search and retrieve software as well as specialized options such as test scoring for schools. Many of the new units feature popular conveniences such as Apple Print and Google Cloud Print as well as WiFi direct and NFC support for Android mobile devices.
Also included is the unique Kyocera Fleet Services platform. With KFS supply levels are monitored and reported through the internet for direct shipment in advance of running low. Meter readings for per print billing are also accurately reported, and many service adjustments can be made to the hardware remotely to help cut down on technical visits. The supply level monitoring and meter readings – but not service adjustments – were formerly available through software utilities that required installation on the client’s network server. KFS eliminates this need as the software to perform the various tasks is completely housed within the copier/printer device.
Basic copy and print functions have been significantly advanced with higher resolution color, a wide range of dual scan document feeders, optional, personalized, mailbox bins, and large, easy to read and use full-color, touch-type flat screens.
Prices on the new line-up are at groundbreaking low levels. For example the new Kyocera 5221cdw full color multifunctional printer is available for only $1,245 at Kyocera Document Solutions Maine. The heavy-duty, 60 page per minute 6052ci that can scan 180 originals per minute, print the first page in just 3.4 seconds, has 1,200 X 1,200 dpi print resolution, can produce full color for under $.04 per page, is only 23” wide and weighs just 202 pounds. That’s about half the size that machines of this horsepower were just a few years ago, and, the 6052ci can be leased for as little as $173 per month!
