Xerox has launched its award-winning ColorQube 9200 series multifunction printer in the region at an event in Abu Dhabi on Monday.

The ColorQube uses Xerox' solid ink technology, which produces 90% less supplies wastage than comparable colour laser printers. The printer also includes a number of functions for more efficient use of colour, cutting the cost of colour pages by up to 62%.

Dan Smith, general manager for Integrated Marketing, Xerox, MEA DMO, commented: "Our customers are looking for ways to achieve more with less. With ColorQube we are unlocking the benefits of colour by applying our proprietary solid ink technology to lower costs and make operations simpler and greener."

The solid ink technology has been in use with Xerox desktop printers for ten years. The sold ink sticks are easier to load, according to Xerox, and also use up to 9% less energy lifecycle and produces 10% less greenhouse gases than comparable laser printers, according to a study by the Rochester Institute of Technology.

The ColorQube 9200 Series, which has three different models, also uses Xerox Hybrid Color pricing plans, which allow customers to be charged only for the amount of colour they use on a given page, rather than using a traditional ‘one-size-fits-all' pricing.

The devices also come with colour, touch screen displays to manage basic features like copying and scanning, and additional customized workflow operations that are accessible from the touch screen can be created with the system's Xerox Extensible Interface Platform.

The system has also been designed to be easy to maintain, with only one customer replaceable unit, a cleaning unit, which Xerox says typically only requires changing once or twice a year.
