London, UK – January 14 2016: KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, has announced the launch of a unique new range of A4 MFP devices which offer benefits normally only available on more expensive A3 machines.

The new additions to the TASKalfa range, the 406ci, 356ci and 306ci, include superior paper handling and finishing capabilities, making them unrivalled in the market. Up to 3100 sheet paper tray capacity, double sided printing, scanning, copying and faxing, and full finishing options make these devices ideal for small to large workgroups who use a colour A3 MFP because of the functionality yet print on A4 most of the time.

These new devices join a long line of KYOCERA products aimed at allowing end users to digitise workflows in the simplest way. They have respective print speeds of 40ppm, 35ppm and 30ppm and come with up to 1200 dpi for the best quality document output. The new devices can be configured to the needs of the department, from space saving desktop models to five-tray floor-standing workgroup colour MFPs.

Nigel Allen, Marketing Director at KYOCERA Document Solutions UK commented, "The new products are ideal for organisations such as schools, who can have tight budgets that mean they print exclusively in A4, despite needing advanced finishing options. They allow documents to be transformed into digital files that are stored, edited and shared, but don’t compromise on superior output management. From A6 up to 1220mm banner sizes can be managed by these fully loaded products. They are ideal for customers who want reduced upfront outlay and low running costs."

Adaptable business tool
All three machines can be easily integrated into existing workflows and tailored to meet the specific needs of an organisation by using KYOCERA’s open software platform HyPAS. Combining Java and Web Services technology, HyPAS can transform these MFPs into a business tool that goes beyond the traditional functions of a normal MFP, improving security and usability easily from the control panel. 

KYOCERA has optimised the new A4 MFP design to give high performance in environments where document output and finishing are key. Until now, this would have meant a big investment in an A3 device. There is no compromise on security or mobile printing capability which, coupled with reduced downtime, means businesses will quickly start to see saving from investing in KYOCERA devices.
