Developed with business users’ needs at the heart of the design, the new inkjet Multi-Function Centre range packs a myriad of essential business features in small footprint.

In addition, the range boasts fast print speeds of up to 22 monochrome and 20 colour pages per minute (based on ISO/IEC 24734).

With class leading specifications, paper handling and the lowest cost per page in its class, we are positive that this new series will take the business inkjet market segment by storm.
