KYOCERA MITA launches TASKalfa 300i MFP to meet the needs of demanding office workgroups

15 January 2010

KYOCERA MITA today launches the TASKalfa 300i monochrome multifunctional device. The TASKalfa 300i is designed to integrate seamlessly into any business environment and benefits from unrivalled ease-of-use and excellent functionality that will enhance productivity and improve workflow.

To meet today’s business requirement for efficiency and flexibility the TASKalfa 300i features an easy-to-read widescreen touch-panel with an intuitive command structure enabling users to immediately reap the benefits of its advanced print, copy and scan functionality. The TASKalfa 300i has an engine speed of 30 ppm and a maximum paper handling capacity of 2,200 sheets, making it capable of managing even high volume workloads. Its scan speed of 50 ipm in mono (15 ipm in colour) means it is ideal for organisations with a requirement to create digital document archives.

Seamless integration

With the launch of the TASKalfa 300i KYOCERA MITA continues to expand its new HyPAS™ open software development platform. HyPAS™ enables the TASKalfa 300i to integrate easily into bespoke workflows and provides consistency across Kyocera devices. Combining Java-based applications with open web service technology enables the TASKalfa 300i to work efficiently both with applications embedded on the device and those on external web servers. HyPAS™ dramatically simplifies the customisation of the device panel allowing the hardware to integrate into security, print policy, accounting or other company-specific document management processes.

Reiko Owada, Product manager at KYOCERA MITA Europe commented: “The TASKalfa 300i is designed to work seamlessly with an organisation‘s existing document management processes and policies. Its intuitive interface makes it instantly accessible for users, minimising the need for training and ensuring it is an asset to the organisation from day one.“

Enhanced security features

To meet the critical requirement for document security the TASKalfa 300i incorporates IPsec, IPv6 and PDF encryption as standard. For even greater security, KYOCERA’s Data Security Kit effectively deletes all data stored on the hard disk during print, copy or scanning processes. For a final level of security, the addition of the printed document guard kit prevents the unauthorised distribution of documents marked with the print guard pattern from TASKalfa devices that have the kit installed.

The TASKalfa 300i can be enhanced with an optional internal document finisher, or for higher volume environments a 1000 sheet external finisher may be added.
