Kyocera is known in this part of the world for its MFP solutions, which have gained high market share in the government and enterprise printing markets. Today, the company is taking the opportunity offered by PacPrint to showcase its commercial production solutions at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Skipp Humphreys, National Sales Specialist for Kyocera, says the company’s showcase will focus on the new TASKalfa Pro 15000c press, “a revolutionary system” that reflects the company’s vast experience in jet printing. sheet-fed and roll-fed ink.

“The TASKalfa Pro 15000c uses patented inkjet head technology that has been proven on many other systems from a range of manufacturers and ticks all the boxes for productivity and quality – producing up to a million A4 impressions per month, or over 150 A4 impressions per minute, at 600 dpi,” said Humphreys.

“The TASKalfa Pro 15000c is a unique inkjet solution that fills a real gap in the production printing market by providing a cost-effective color printing solution for short-run cut-sheet applications on uncoated media. .

“This makes it ideal for a wide range of applications such as short-run transactional printing, small-scale publication runs, reviews and manuals, forms and direct mail, where versatility, cost-effectiveness and durability are essential and where coated or ultra-high resolution stocks are redundant.

According to Humphreys, many print service providers, even those currently operating digital presses, are experiencing price pressures for this type of work because the traditional digital pricing structure simply does not allow enough flexibility to maintain the anterior margins.

The TASKalfa Pro 15000c is a game-changer in this situation, as it was designed to enable printers to not only meet a wide range of demands… but to profit from this type of work, he said.

“This cut-sheet inkjet printing solution is ideal for everyone from small to medium sized direct mailers and publishers; companies, schools and universities; and printers looking to either complement existing digital presses or eliminate the need for overprinting offset shells.

“Most importantly, Kyocera offers the choice, upon installation, of an ‘ink-in’ or ‘ink-out’ pricing model. Typical digital models have set an all-inclusive cost per print for SRA3 or A4 sheets, which includes parts, service and ink – what we call the “ink-in” model.

Humphreys says the TASKalfa Pro 15000c meets important durability criteria.

“At Kyocera, we are keenly aware of the need to maximize sustainability for the long-term future of our planet. These machines have been designed to minimize power consumption and offer exceptional energy efficiency for their speed by utilizing features such as achieving an ambient ink curing temperature of just 65 degrees Celsius.

This is proving vital in many countries which are now facing problems with electricity supply and continuity, but Humphreys said that even in this part of the world where we are somewhat removed from the worst impacts of the unrest and constrained supply, energy costs rise dramatically. “This means that reducing energy inputs makes practical and financial sense, while also being environmentally friendly.”

The TASKalfa Pro 15000c also offers the ability to plug into a standard 10 amp power outlet.

“It’s gold in a corporate environment, an in-house printing facility or even many general purpose office/warehouse developments that simply don’t have access to enough 3-phase power and may also have a limited capacity,” Humphreys said. “Setting up conventional printing equipment in this environment can be a real headache, but with the TASKalfa Pro 15000c you can just plug it into the wall and get started.

“With the ability to handle stocks ranging from A6 to SRA3, envelopes such as DLX and C4, and versatile configurations to meet user needs, the TASKalfa Pro 15000c is an impressive inkjet solution!”

The TASKalfa Pro 15000c will be showcased live at PacPrint’s stand G32, which will co-locate with Visual Impact Melbourne and Label & Packaging Expo from June 28 to July 1 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
