KYOCERA delivers optimised document output and security for all network environments

01 November 2009

KYOCERA MITA launches the TASKalfa 420i and 520i, two new monochrome multifunctional devices. Optimised to provide the flexibility for superior performance, these devices also meet the growing demand for excellent network integration and security.

Flexibility is a recurring requirement of businesses when it comes to handling office documents. To meet this demand KYOCERA MITA is launching the TASKalfa 420i and 520i monochrome multifunction devices. Both feature an easy-to-read, wide, full-colour touch panel with a highly intuitive command structure. Users benefit from quick and easy access to all functions, regardless of whether these devices are being used as a copier, network printer, full-colour scanner or even, optionally, as a fax system. Together with the exceptional reliability and minimal down times delivered by KYOCERA MITA’s long-life components, these flexible devices are a highly productive addition to any office or work group.

In addition, the new devices also incorporate HyPAS™, KYOCERA MITA’s new open software development platform. Combining Java based applications with open web service technology, the TASKalfa 420i and 520i work efficiently both with applications embedded within the device as well as with applications based on an external web-server. This hybrid platform makes it much easier to integrate the devices into a company’s workflow by simplifying the customisation of the device panel and making these devices a part of automated, company-specific processes. Regardless of whether the subjects are security protocols, document routing, accounting functions or other document management options, all functions (print, copy, scan or fax) can be tailored to support a company’s specific processes and requirements.

Professional network devices

The TASKalfa 420i and 520i are highly reliable network devices. To safeguard against potential security risks, these models are equipped with IPsec, IPv6 and PDF encryption as standard. For even greater security, KYOCERA MITA offers additional security options such as the Data Security Kit which effectively deletes all data stored to the hard disk during the print, copy or scanning process. Data security never compromises the efficiency of these devices. With a printing speed of up to 52 ppm A4 and a high-speed, one-path duplex document processor that scans up to 60 ipm in colour at 300 dpi, these office devices are also highly productive.

Flexible paper handling

Available with a wide range of paper handling options these multifunctional devices are flexible from start to finish. Additional paper cassettes can increase the paper supply to up to 4,200 sheets. Different finishers let users punch, staple, fold, make booklets or quickly and efficiently organise printouts by using the mailbox sorter. The new TASKalfa 420i and 520i will be available from authorised retailers from November onwards.
