Xerox debuts new ColorQube printer series
Multi-function printers are designed to reduce print costs
Xerox has debuted three new multi-function printers (MFPs) built on the ColorQube platform, designed to reduce print costs and work at faster print speeds.
According to Xerox, companies can cut colour print costs by 50% using the Hybrid Color Pricing Plans available with the Xerox ColorQube 9300 Series. With this plan, companies only pay for the amount of colour on a given page.
"The Xerox ColorQube 9200 Series broke new ground in office colour printing by turning the cost equation on its head. It gave companies an affordable way to use colour every day - something they have requested for years," said Dan Smith, head of Integrated Marketing for the Middle East and Africa region of Xerox's Developing Markets Operations. "The new Xerox ColorQube MFPs deliver the cost savings businesses have come to expect from solid ink technology."
The new MFPs are cartridge free and can print up to 55 pages per minute (ppm) in colour, 60 ppm in black and white, and scan as fast as 60 impressions per minute in colour.
The ColorQube 9300 Series is designed to produce consistent colour prints, regardless of media type. The printer also has a USB port, allowing users to print from and scan to a memory stick.
The MFP also features Color by Words, a colour-editing tool designed to create accurate and vibrant colours from the first print.
The device has an electronic image overwrite which is designed to shred data on the MFP's hard drive while 256-bit encryption protects information flowing through the device.
The ColorQube 9300 Series has a lower environmental impact then other comparable printers and is Energy Star qualified.
According to Xerox, the printer generates up to 90% less consumable and packaging waste than comparable laser devices and includes only one replaceable component - a cleaning unit with an average life of 330,000 prints.
"With the Xerox ColorQube we are comfortable printing more in colour. Combine the ease of use and environmental benefits, and switching to solid ink MFPs was a logical move. Plus, less hassle and more savings mean extra time and resources we can reallocate to our core business," said Smith.
The prices for the ColorQube 9300 MFPs begin at $16,500 and are available through Xerox direct sales, resellers, agents and Global Imaging Systems.
