Kyocera launches its smallest, robust and user-friendly office printer for lowest sales price

01 November 2012

Kyocera Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, has launched two new entry level printers for small and middle sized workgroups to meet the needs of important growing markets. The FS-1040 and FS-1060DN offer Kyocera quality and durability at a competitive price, with the FS-1040 priced under €100.

“The A4 mono printer segment up to 25ppm is growing significantly in Russia, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. With this in mind, we have developed the FS-1040 and the FS-1060DN. These economical and compact printers are the new entry-level products in our unique Ecosys series,” explains Reiko Owada, Senior Manager Product Management, Kyocera Document Solutions Europe B.V. “We are proud to present these new devices. This is the next step in the 20 years of Ecosys development.”

Reduced costs through long-life technology

It’s not only the retail price that makes both printers competitive. Kyocera’s unique Ecosys technology with its long-life drum can print up to 100,000 pages – eight to ten times more than comparable devices. This offers considerable savings for the user during the life of the printer.
Kyocera printers are also very economical when it comes to toner consumption. The use of a high-capacity toner cartridge means that the devices print between 2,500 and 3,000 pages, which are up to twice as many as any other printers in this segment.

Ideal for small offices and work groups

The combination of these cost-saving consumables with a small footprint and a printing speed of 20ppm/25ppm, makes both the FS-1040 and FS-1060DN ideal for small offices and work groups as well as home use.
Both new printers feature a simple three-button control panel for starting and stopping the device as well as selecting the quiet mode. “Our printers will make work in smaller offices significantly more comfortable”, says Reiko Owada.

The new Ecosys multifunctional devices will be launched in October 2012.
