Kyocera Document Solutions America, Inc. has announced the launch of the TASKalfa 13600 Series, a production printing system that marks their entry into the black & white high-speed segment of the market.
“We’ve built an impeccable reputation with a wide range of businesses,” said Ed Bialecki, senior VP of sales. “With these new production devices, we’re ready to serve an entirely new class of customers.”
The TASKalfa 13600, TASKalfa 11100, and TASKalfa 9600 black & white production MFPs offer print, copy, and scan functionality, with print speeds up to 136, 111, and 96 ppm respectively, and scan speed up to 220 images per minute (ipm) in color across the board. At 1200 x 4800 dpi, the resolution achieves results, due to the granular toner particle size, accurate registration, and VSCEL Technology.
All three devices offer a large 10.4″ color touchscreen with animated guidance, and security features including, data encryption, and user authentication. According to Bialecki, “They’re fast, they’re reliable, they’re secure, they’re designed for intense work environments. This is an exciting addition to our line-up.”
“The advanced finishing options further elevate these devices,” said Terry Knopsnyder, vice president of engineering. “Customers can opt for a 3,000-sheet staple finisher that can staple up to 100 sheets, or even a 2,500-sheet booklet finisher that can saddle-stitch 20-sheet booklets.” The optional multiple fold unit can deliver letter fold-in, letter fold-out, half-fold, gate-fold, z-fold, and double parallel. The dual-scan document processor comes standard on every model.
The TASKalfa 13600 Series supports a wide range of media. The optional large capacity trays, vacuum feed trays, and multipurpose tray support thin, thick, heavy, NCR, pre-printed, textured, and coated stocks, up to 350 gsm and up to 13″ x 19.2″. This series features the Trained Customer Replaceable Units (TCRU) modular design system. End-users trained in TCRU can replace the most commonly accessed service items necessary to keep the system up and running, without service intervention.
Who says Kyocera isn’t a player in the production print space? While the company hit a home run with the introduction of the 15000 inkjet production printer earlier this year (A product that dealers won’t be getting their hands on until next year.), the announcement of these high-speed toner-based models provides Kyocera dealers who’ve been pining for high-speed production devices something to talk about. We still expect Kyocera to introduce more inkjet production machines, but in the meantime, the company can’t go wrong by providing its dealers with a broad range of production print options–something that’s been a long time coming.
