Kyocera plots growth with inkjet production print expansion
Print technology provider Kyocera Document Solutions UK has set its sights on acquiring new customers after expanding its services into the inkjet production print market with the launch of the new TASKalfa Pro 15000c.
The TASKalfa Pro 15000c is Kyocera’s first production printing device, with a top speed of 150 prints per minute in A4 format meaning it has the ability to deliver up to one million prints per month.
Users of the new machine will also benefit from a modular design that allows for different scales, with storage for up to 14,310 sheets, as well as the ability to use papers up to 360g/sq m.
Other key attributes include a warm-up time from standby and time to first print of 5.5 seconds, while a low average energy usage of 1.5 KwH for the standard configuration means that the machine is an environmentally friendly choice for print companies.
Speaking about the new TASKalfa Pro 15000c, a Kyocera spokesperson told FESPA.com that the launch marks a major milestone for the manufacturer, explaining that the machine is based on the manufacturer’s experience of other areas of the print market.
“Kyocera uses its longstanding heritage and expertise in the printing industry, where their collection of MFPs and printers are among the most respected in the market,” the spokesperson said.
“Our trusted partners and customers value our partnership and quality of our technology and have been highlighting to us the need to expand our portfolio and provide them with comprehensive print production solutions. As a result, Kyocera developed our first print production machine to be able to meet our partners and customers demands.
“Moreover, we have seen a significant trend in bringing back in-house print services which have been recently outsourced and thanks to Kyocera’s new production solutions we can help our customers in exactly achieving that. Customers have been asking for a cost competitive device that can handle significantly high print volumes without compromising on quality.”
In terms of what sort of companies the TASKalfa Pro 15000c would be suited to, Kyocera said the machine would be a good fit for a wide range of production print environments, such as central reprographic departments and transactional and trans-promotional applications.
“Here at Kyocera, we constantly strive to deliver the very best solutions to our customer requirements, whether it’s office or production print, content services or managed services,” the spokesperson told FESPA.com.
“Kyocera is well known to be the most reliable colour copier brand in the industry. We have used out technology heritage to develop the most reliable print production device so that customers can boost their productivity.”
