The company is no stranger to the commercial printing world. The inkjet printheads are widely used by well known brands in wide format and directly onto garments. However, the Tasksalfa Pro 15000c is the first system under its own name.

The company says the price of the new printer will be competitive and claims it has the lowest cost of ownership in its market segment. The device offers low maintenance, high efficiency and low energy consumption as well as a typical energy consumption of 6.3 kWh / week. It offers cost effective solutions for high volume printing.

Jacob Palathingal, Senior Marketing Manager – Product at Kyocera Document Solutions Australia, said: “This is a milestone for Kyocera and brings our decades of experience into the production printing sector. The Taskalfa Pro 15000c is the innovation created by bringing together our trusted experts around the world. The impressively productive machine offers companies of all sizes an unmatched return on investment thanks to its 150 pages per minute and market-leading reliability. “

It prints at 600 x 600 dpi, with paper formats from A6 to SRA3 and storage weights from 56 to 360 g / m². It is aimed at printers who produce up to a million A4 pages per month. It can hold 14,310 sheets in its paper trays. The warm-up time is less than two minutes.

The printer uses water-based pigment ink, which Kyocera says is environmentally friendly in both manufacture and disposal.

The company says that while Kyocera is entering an entirely new business area with this launch, it will retain many of the key features that made the brand successful. One such aspect is the ease of maintenance of the device thanks to the few relocations of parts, which reduce the risk of failure and in many cases can even be easily replaced by the user without the need for a technician visit.
