New A3 Kyocera TASKalfa 6052ci Series with Tiered Color-Print Pricing, WiFi Direct, NFC, More


Kyocera TASKalfa 6052ci.

KYOCERA Document Solutions America today rolled out four new A3 color copier/MFPs, the TASKalfa 6052ci, 5052ci, 4052ci, and 3552ci, which it rates at up to 55 ppm in color and says features “a set of technological innovations that represent a giant leap forward.”

Designed for mid-size and large workgroups, the new TASKalfa 6052ci Series provides 1,200 x 1,200 dpi print resolution through new toner technology and Kyocera a-Si drum technology. For users with greater image quality needs, or particularly complex print workflows, an optional Electronics for Imaging (EFI) Fiery print controller is available for all four models.

The new MFPs also feature standard WiFi-Direct (print from mobile devices without a network router) and Near Field Communication (NFC) tap-and-print mobile printing for NFC-enabled Android mobile devices. The entire series is HyPAS-enabled, ready to run Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and KYOCERA Mobile Print, as well as various other business applications, including a variety of “connector” apps, which allow integration with many third-party applications.

The TASKalfa 6052ci Series supports tiered-color billing, under which customers pay for actual color page coverage (for instance, only the color contained in a company logo is counted as printed color, not the entire page). The MFPs are also compatible with KYOCERA Fleet Services (KFS), a cloud-based device-monitoring service that allows authorized dealers to handle many maintenance tasks without having to perform time-consuming on-site visits. Through KFS, Kyocera dealers can anticipate issues and resolve them before they occur, and even update firmware remotely during off-hours.

There’s also a tablet-like 9″ touchscreen with 90-degree tilt, as well as various paper-handling and document-finishing configurations, toner-lock, and an eco-friendly toner-cartridge replacement system under which empty black toner containers can be re-used as waste-toner containers.

The TASKalfa 6052ci Series is available through authorized Kyocera dealers at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $20,325 for the TASKalfa 6052ci, $15,876 for the TASKalfa 5052ci, $13,758 for the TASKalfa 4052ci, and $10,756 for the TASKalfa 3552i.

Our Take

Nice! Well done Kyocera!
