The A4 700 and 8000 series of laser printers and MFPs have been made available by distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).
IT Web reported on the launch, with the new printers including the CS270, 275 and 820 single-function machines (the CS700 and CS800 ranges), and the CX725, 820, 825 and 860 MFPs (the CX700 and CX800 ranges). The site noted that the devices “meet the demand of this fast-growing segment of the print and imaging industry”, citing IDC data that showed the third quarter of last year in the global market was a “very strong segment for worldwide MFP activity”.
The machines feature an Android user interface for “very familiar mobile device qualities and characteristics”, as well as “high-powered document scanning capabilities”, an “enhanced mobile device printing experience” and “robust, enhanced security tools”. A new generation of Unison core and shell toner meanwhile has “lower friction and works at lower temperatures”, helping to drop energy consumption “by a third”.
In turn, new photo conductors and drums “using long-life components” are said to help “lower maintenance and ensure improved TCO), while the MFPs utilise a “powerful quad core processor” for faster printing and copying speeds. All the devices have a tablet-like touchscreen, while the “flagship CX860” has “industry-best toner capacity, large input/output capacity and flexible media support”.
Colin Pretorius, Lexmark Product Specialist at DCC, commented: “The Lexmark A4 printers and MFPs enable us to readily supply products to the growing A4 printer marketplace. The devices offer quality and advanced features that will provide excellent business productivity and TCO gains.”
