Productivity & Stability ― On-demand press with high productivity and stability.
Technologies supporting high-speed printing
High-speed continuous printing of 136 ppm*1 has been realised for both 1-sided and 2-sided printing. Reliable fusing on paper transported in high-speed is now possible with EA-Eco LGK*2 toner that allows fusing at lower temperature than existing models and a roll type fusing unit providing constant heat supply.
Continuous mass printing enabled
You can enjoy seamless operation at continuous mass printing as cartridge replacement and paper refill can be done while printing is in progress. A single high capacity toner cartridge can yield approximately 71500 pages* for printing.
Stable paper transport
Wide turning angles in paper path provide stable and speedy paper transport. This device has a good resistance against paper jam by adopting vertical paper inversion mechanism for 2 sided printing to reduce curves in the paper path. In addition, there is less impact caused by heat generated by fused paper on the transfer mechanism and it hardly causes troubles with paper path and image quality.
"Air Suction Feeder C1-DS" with enhanced paper handling capabilities
Shuttle head draws up the paper strongly using a small amount of air, it easily separates and delivers each sheet efficiently. This even improves feed performance of paper with a lot of paper dust, pre-printed paper using powder, paper with uneven texture, and coated paper that is prone to sticking. Stable and high-speed feed is achieved for various paper types, from lightweight to heavyweight, small-sized paper and long paper.
Quality ― Exceptionally beautiful, high quality printing.
High resolution printing of 2400 × 2400 dpi
The heart of the printer, ROS*1, uses VCSEL*2 as a light source. It enables printing at 2400 × 2400 dpi high resolution by
drawing images simultaneously with 32 laser beams.
EA-Eco LGK* toner for high image quality
EA-Eco LGK toner with extremely small particle size of 6.5 microns allows reproduction of photograph gradation in a smooth and beautiful way, density uniformity in figures, and small text clearly. It also produces easy-to-read printed text with less glare which is also easy on your eyes.
Transfer unit with high image quality design
Designed to prevent fluctuations in paper transport speed even in a compact body. Stabilize driving speed of the transfer belt by increasing the roll diameter. Automatic adjustment of contact pressure between transfer belt and drum. It ensures consistent transfer even on thin or thick paper.
Ultra high precision registration - IReCT*
This digital image registration control technology "IReCT*" precisely measures the position of sheets running in highspeed and realises real time correction to misregistration of printing images and distortion on each sheet with ultra high precision registration, which cannot be achieved by mechanical correction technology alone.
Maintain printing quality with easy adjustment
Simple Image Quality Adjustment (SIQA), which realises simple alignment adjustments has been installed. For optimal adjustment, you can just print and scan the calibration chart. It ensures consistent printing quality with properly adjusted print position, perpendicularity, skew and magnification on both the front and back sides.
More screen choices
Various screen settings*1 including FM screen that suppresses moire*2 are now available.
Image Enhancement in a more beautiful way
Higher image quality has been implemented with "Edge Enhancement" that fixes jaggedness on the edge of thin line and text outline and "Adjust Invert Text/Line Weight" that fixes thickened/blurred text.
No more multifeed, and mixed blank pages
The multifeed detection sensor monitors the paper flow to prevent the feeding of multiple sheets of paper. If a multifeed is
detected, printing is interrupted to prevent blank page insertion.
Versatility ― A wider range of media types and finishes
Media handling capabilities
This device can handle a wide range of paper weights from lightweight paper of 52 gsm to heavyweight paper of 350 gsm. The upper limit of heavyweight paper has been extended thanks to the paper path design, and employing the control mechanism that automatically switches fusing roll pressure between two levels. Not only that, it allows fine control to extend the support range of coated paper and specialty paper*1. Paper sizes ranging from A6 to 330.2 × 488 mm are available. Full-bleed printing on SRA3 (320 × 450 mm) is also possible and it is useful to create brochures or leaflets that need to have bleed. Further, banner printing on long paper of up to 660.4 mm is now available.*2 New print applications will expand such as powerful panoramic posters.
Printing with right settings for each media type
A maximum of 100 paper types can be registered with "Custom Paper Settings". It allows configuration settings such as alignment, fold position, fusing temperature according to paper to be used and produce printout with high image quality.
Flexible feeding and finishing options
These options make it possible to build flexible printing systems suited to every printing operation.
