New Kyocera Multifunctional Printers

kyocera printerOne of the world’s top document imaging companies, Kyocera Mita America, has just recently presented their new, fast, multifunctional printers. The FS-1128MFP, FS-1028MFP/DP and FS-1028MFP are perfect for the small to medium business environment and include a variety of fascinating new features targeted to improve productivity in any office.

The three different Kyocera printers each feature a 250 sheet paper drawer and a 50 sheet multi-purpose tray. The FS-1028MFP/DP and FS-1028MFP have all standard network printing, copying, and color scanning abilities. The FS-1128MFP includes faxing capabilities that allow businesses to meet all the business workflow needs of their company in one device.

The FS-1128MFP, FS-1028MFP/DP and FS-1028MFP are capable of supporting an assortment of network and device management programs that include KMnet ADMIN and KMnet Viewer. All of the multifunctional printers support PDF Direct Print capabilities that allows users to send a PDF file directly to the device. They also all feature a USB host interface which provides users with Print-from and Scan-to capabilities in PDF, TIF, and XPS file formats.

All of the printers come standard with a PowerPC440/667 Mhz processor and with 1200 dpi print resolution. Users are given the option to print in color or black & white. Other useful features found in these printers would include the ability to choose between several scanning destinations: Scan-to-E-mail, Scan-to-PC, Scan-to-FTP, Scab-to-USB, and TWAIN scanning.

To add to the list of great things about these printers is the fact that they all meet Energy Star guidelines for power efficiency. The printers were also designed using Kyocera’s ECOSYS technology that utilizes long-life consumables and components to allow for the 100,000 page preventative maintenance schedule. This amazing preventative maintenance schedule means that there will be longer time periods between required service visits. This will save the company money by minimizing maintenance costs.

The FS-1128MFP, FS-1028MFP/DP and FS-1028MFP printers are available through any authorized Kyocera dealer. The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the printers are $1,371, $1,181, and $1,020 respectively.

These printers are jam packed with awesome, useful features that I think could help out many businesses. Though they may seem a little on the pricey side, when you really consider what you’re getting, these printers will seem like a great deal.
