New 60-PPM Kyocera Ecosys P8060cdn with Tablet-Like Touchscreen, Mobile Printing, HyPAS
On June 20th, KYOCERA Document Solutions America introduced its latest A3 stand-alone color printer for mid-size companies and workgroups, the ECOSYS P8060cdn ($6,188 MSRP), which prints at 60 ppm (55 ppm in color) at 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution, and prints on media up to 12” x 18” in size. Available via authorized Kyocera dealers, the printer’s standard paper capacity is 1,150 sheets, expandable up to 7,150 sheets, and optional document-finishing is available.
Other features include:
- Mobile printing, including KYOCERA Mobile Print, Apple AirPrint, and Google Cloud Print.
- Security and cost control.
- 9” color touchscreen.
- Wi-Fi Direct wireless connectivity and NFC (Near Field Communication) for tap-and-print from NFC-enabled Android mobile devices.
- Enabled with Kyocera’s HyPAS platform for incorporating various security and cost-control solutions, including AccessLock and CentraQ Pro.
- Revolving toner system that simplifies mechanics and reduces energy requirements.
The ECOSYS P8060cdn supports Kyocera’s tiered-color billing (printed color page billing is based on page coverage and priced accordingly), as well as Kyocera Fleet Services (KFS), the latter of which is a cloud-based monitoring service that allows authorized dealers to remotely handle maintenance tasks for their customers without time-consuming on-site visits. Through KFS, dealers are said to be able to anticipate issues and resolve them before they occur, as well as remotely update device firmware during off-hours.
Kyocera also says that the printer’s 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print resolution is further enhanced by Kyocera’s new toner technology. With the new toner technology, printed color is said to be deeper and more vivid, “blacks are sharper and more well-defined – especially thin-ruled lines and smaller characters.” The ECOSYS P8060cdn uses toner engineered with smaller particles, which require less heat to fuse them to the page, reducing energy consumption.
There’s also an environmentally friendly toner-container replacement system in which empty black toner containers can be re-used as waste-toner containers, which minimizes landfill waste, as does the Toner Locking System that ensures containers are completely empty before they’re replaced.
