Muratec, the multifunction specialist company, has launched the MFX-1350 multifunctional system.
For maximum flexibility the MFX-1350 can be used as a desktop copier, fax, scanner and printer with network printing and scanning options. In line with Muratecs policy of offering customers low total cost of ownership, the MFX-1350 has a 0.75p cost per copy because it uses Muratecs new high yield toner*. Further savings can be made with the duplex print feature for copies, prints and faxes.
As part of Muratecs pioneering low cost TCO strategy the economical MFX-1350 has separate drum and toner units to minimise operating costs. The 30,000-page drum life (two page cycle) ensures low running costs while the toner cartridge produces 16,000 sheets at six percent coverage. The MFX-1350 automatically requests consumable replacements and engineer servicing. With a total design life of 300,000 pages the MFX1350 is far more robust than most multifunctionals designed for SoHo rather than commercial use.
As a desktop digital copier the MFX-1350 has a range of features for high productivity output. Copy speed is 13 pages per minute with a first copy out time of just twelve seconds. The MFX-1350 has an ADF (automatic document feeder) that can stack up to 80 originals for fast throughput of copy jobs. The 8Mbyte (650 pages of text) standard memory can be used to store copy jobs and is upgradeable to 40Mbyte (3,370 pages of text).
Copy resolution is 600 by 600 dpi using LED print technology for high quality copy output. Copies can be reduced or enlarged from 25% to 400% using the MFX-1350s zoom facility, with eight pre-set zoom ratios for standard settings. The MFX-1350 also allows duplex (double sided) copying or printing, including two single sided originals to one double-sided copy.
The MFX-1350 has a 500 sheet A4 paper drawer as well as a 50 sheet bypass facility. An optional 500 sheet paper drawer can be added to give a total paper capacity of 1,050 sheets. Paper up to A4 in size and 128gsm in weight can be used with the MFX-1350.
As standard the MFX-1350 can be used as a GDI computer printer with colour scanning facility. An optional network upgrade is available with a PCL6 print controller allowing network printing and black and white scanning to hard drive, e-mail or Internet fax. For fax operation the MFX-1350 has a 33.6k bps modem for a fast 2 second per page transmission speed. ITU-T Super Group 3 standard is supported with JBIG compression.
A triple access facility means that the versatile MFX-1350 can perform three functions simultaneously for example receiving a fax into memory, printing from computer and also scanning.
Commenting on the launch of the MFX-1350, Stewart Carroll, General Manager of Muratec Europe (UK) said, The MFX-1350 is another winner for Muratec. It has been designed specifically for commercial rather than domestic use so it is fully featured, reliable and economic to run. Running and servicing costs are an important part of our TCO arguments so the MFX-1350 has been designed for optimum drum life and toner capacity. We anticipate high levels of sales to our corporate customers.
