Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands – 4 November 2019: As Kyocera Document Solutions Europe, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, expands into new business domains, the organisation has launched its first production print device with the TASKalfa Pro 15000c. This development is the next step in Kyocera’s diversification, building on a wealth of experience in the creation of inkjet printhead technology.
Kyocera uses their longstanding heritage and expertise in the printing industry, where their collection of MFPs and printers are among the most respected in the market, to move into the production printing domain with their latest product. The device offers low maintenance, high efficiency and low energy consumption and provides solutions in an economical way for printing in high quantities.
“This is a landmark moment for Kyocera, bringing our decades of experience into the production print sector. The TASKalfa Pro 15000c is the innovation created by uniting our trusted experts across the globe. The impressively productive machine provides companies of all sizes with an unrivalled return on investment thanks to its 150 pages per minute and market-leading reliability,” explained Marcel Ebbenhorst, Manager of Production Print, Marketing Innovation Centre at Kyocera Document Solutions Europe.
Whilst this product launch sees Kyocera move into a whole new area of business, it retains many of the key features that have made the brand so successful. One such aspect is the device’s ease-of-maintenance, thanks to the few moving parts that reduce the risk of breakdown and can even be easily replaced by users themselves in many cases without the need for a technician visit. This provides reliability for companies who require consistency from their printing services due to the high quantities of print demanded from each production job.
Additionally, TASKalfa Pro 15000c can enhance the productivity of any print job, with a warm-up time of less than 120 seconds and a time to first print of 5.5 seconds or less. This offers improved agility and flexibility to companies who cannot afford to wait for their print output. When combined with simple integration into existing workflows, the device can ensure that users always find a way to meet even the most demanding of deadlines without compromising on quality, control or costs.
All of this is achieved whilst also protecting environmental sustainability, which is at the heart of Kyocera’s philosophy, considering the device operates at 6.3 KwH/week for Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC), representing one of the best energy efficient products in this category on the market. Focused on optimising energy usage as much as possible, the TASKalfa Pro 15000c maintains Kyocera’s focus on reducing environmental impact at the same time as costs.
“Our intrinsic values are what has helped Kyocera position ourselves at the forefront of innovation within the printing industry. It was essential for the TASKalfa Pro 15000c to be built on the same premise of essential foundations as a product that offers more than just quality, but also reliability and sustainability, and therefore represent a comprehensive value package for our customers,” Ebbenhorst added.
“Companies are growing increasingly conscious of the need to improve security by internalising print services, particularly in sectors such as banking, healthcare, utilities and public services. They have also recognised the opportunity to add value through personalisation that is unique to this type of products. This made it clear to us at Kyocera that the time was right to bring our experience into a new domain with a specific product ready to lead the market,” he concluded.
Kyocera strives to provide optimised printing solutions to businesses of all sizes through their range of products. The introduction of the TASKalfa Pro 15000c extends this portfolio, providing print specialists and organisations with high printing demand the chance to optimise their processes in an efficient and reliable way.
