Over 60%* percent of small and medium-sized businesses in Europe still need hard copy records of documents, nearly three out of four need to print documents for clients*, while at the same time making a significant effort to reduce printing-related costs*, according to a recent Europe-wide survey carried out by independent research company IDC**.

This new range is ideal for high-quality, high-volume printing with print speeds of up to 40 pages per minute. It also includes a series of cost saving features such as ‘toner save mode’, ‘booklet printing’ and ‘low power consumption’.
 
Other key features available in this range include:
Large paper capacities of up to 1,050 sheets
Automatic 2-sided printing and scanning
