Kyocera Document Solutions SA exhibiting high-speed production printer

The TASKalfa Pro 15000c offers high-quality printing, long-life components and productivity that customers can rely on. Thanks to low maintenance, high efficiency and low energy consumption, it is also an economical way to print in large quantities.

‘Kyocera Document Solutions has championed innovative technology since 1934,’ said Heidie-Mari Middel, Production Specialist at Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa. ‘Our entry into the production print market is an important milestone for us and a significant innovation. Our production device provides companies of all sizes with an unrivalled return on investment thanks to its 150 pages per minute and market-leading reliability.’

The device has few moving parts, reducing the risk of breakdown. Of the parts that may need replacing, they can actually be easily replaced by users themselves, eliminating 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, the 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.

‘We are upbeat about the opportunities in South Africa,’ Middel 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. In addition to this, as the direct mail market becomes more digital and personalised with shorter print runs, printers will need to offer high quality, fast output at a considerably lower cost. The TASKalfa Pro 15000c was designed to address these needs.’

‘We are serious about ensuring a dedicated premium service and product offering for our customers, so that they can do business better now and well into the future in this accelerated digital economy,’ said Middel.
