Canon announces Colour Laser Base MF8180C All-In-One in Europe

350 350 haugadmin

The MF8100C is the first Canon colour All-In-One devise in Canon’s Laser Base range, combining a colour laser printer, colour laser copier, colour scanner and high speed fax in one unit. Colour prints are generated at 2400x600dpi enhanced quality, with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black toner cartridges and a single drum cartridge for printing, copying and fax printing.

In conventional printers, the fixing roller is coated with oil to ensure that the paper does not adhere to the roller during the fixation process. Canon uses its originally developed S-Toner, comprised of perfectly spherical microparticles, in the MF8180C. S-Toner incorporates wax at the core of each toner particle. With S-Toner oil-less fixing becomes possible because the wax is released and spreads out during the fixation process. The result are output images without the glossiness associated with conventional toner.

The MF8180C has print speeds to cope with the demands of any busy office or work unit. Monochrome prints and copies are generated at 19ppm and colour at 4ppm. The device uses high yield cartridges (Y/M/C/K – 4’000 pages each) while the drum yield is 20’000 in monochrome (5’000 pages colour), based on 5% coverage.

Color Technology Transforming the Workgroup Environment

350 350 haugadmin

According to an InfoTrend study color printer, printer MFPs and UCPs are the most important class of products of the office workgroup. InfoTrends projects that placements of b/w office printers and copiers are peacking and will decline over the next five years as office color machines become the dominant products in most product segments. Vendors that do not have an agressive color strategy will loose market share and consumables revenues.

Recent research findings strongly suggest that vendor should shift their development resources towards color printers and UCP (Universal copier/printer) devices and away from new, clean-sheet designs of conventional monochrome devices. The focus of any new b/w product developments should be on further reducing costs but not on adding features.

Furthermore, the research studies predict that the digital color market will grow 20% a year through the end of the decade, creating radical shifts in revenue and page volume and transforming the face of the printing industry. The market for digital color is currently generating over 58 billion pages in the U.S and results in over 42’000 hardware placements in production environments. This production market purchases USD 4,46 billion in digital color equipment, services and supplies (excluding paper)and generates almost USD 25 billion in retail value of print (source: InfoTrend, February 2006).

Western European Office Equipment usage driven by increased demand for colour in office.

350 350 haugadmin

A recent survey indicated by InfoTrends indicates that office equipment usage is being primarily driven by the increased demand for colour in the office. This is demonstrated by the increased demand for presence of colour copiers and colour laser printers. The prevalence of colour laser printers has increased significantly between 2004 and 2005. While only 36,2% or respondents reported owning these devices in 2004, 44,1% reported owning them in 2005.

According to the report businesses are beginning to favour colour laser printers over inkjet technology due to their higher speed, better reliability and high-capacity toner cartridges. The migration towards colour printing is further evidenced by the increased number of respondents who indicated owning a colour copier. The most significant change was seen among 24+ cpm colour copiers, with 9% of respondents owning one in 2004 compared to 14% in 2005.
