Kyocera Mita Announces FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN Duplex Printing Systems

FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- Oct. 10, 2001 -- Kyocera Mita America, Inc., one of the world's leading document imaging companies, introduces two remarkable new printers designed for workgroups, large departments and back office environments. The FS-9100DN and the FS-9500DN both offer outstanding image quality, extensive paper handling capabilities and a full complement of finishing options. Out of the box, both printers are network ready and include duplexing, enabling them to accommodate the document management needs of any busy office that requires high speed output and extremely low operating costs.


“Our FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN printers bring something very special to the market,” said Robert Sostilio, Senior Product Marketing Manager. “Engineered for consistent heavy-duty use, these printers offer high volume output with versatile finishing options that have previously been available only on copiers and production level printers. Our FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN laser printers are extremely reliable across the whole spectrum of office applications. These printers will work longer and harder for any size workgroup than anything else on the market.”


The FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN are designed with Kyocera Mita's patented ECOSYS® technology. Utilizing an Amorphous Silicon Drum (aSi) that lasts longer than conventional printer cartridge units, ECOSYS® printers reduce the need to replace all-in-one Toner Cartridges and imaging drums on a frequent basis. These long life drums offer extremely high yields, reducing operating, service and consumable costs while providing the highest quality image outputs. The ECOSYS® design ensures a low cost per print and an overall Total Cost of Ownership well below the industry average.


The FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN are among a small group of printers that delivers 1200 dpi output at full engine speed. This means you can expect crisp, clear black and white images for professional looking documents without any decrease in productivity. The FS-9100DN prints 36 pages a minute with the first print out in only 7 seconds -- perfect for workgroups with heavy print traffic up to 180,000 pages per month. The FS-9500DN is designed for larger departments and back office environments. With a 50 page-per-minute speed and the first print out in a quick 5 seconds it's ideal for handling up to 250,000 pages per month.


The extensive range of paper handling capabilities of the FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN include letter, legal, ledger, cover stock, transparencies and labels. With standard dual 500 sheet paper drawers, 200 sheet multi-purpose tray and an optional 3,000 sheet paper deck, extended job runs can be completed without having to frequently refill the paper supply. Both printers offer complete paper handling versatility and convenience.


The FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN provide a diverse selection of finishing options. Various output options include 50 sheet Multi-Position Stapling, Saddle Stitching for booklets and pamphlets and a choice of 2 or 3 Hole Punching. All of the finishing options are accessible from the desktop through KX Driver and the Internet, providing convenient document support and production from anywhere in the world.


The FS-9100DN and the FS-9500DN printers use the KX Driver technology, providing users with the ability to accomplish all printing tasks from start to finish from the workstation. It also enables easy access to multiple storage functions right from the Printer's control panel. What's more, the KX Driver supports all Kyocera Mita Copiers and Printers on the network, making it easy for everyone to print without the need to learn multiple drivers.


The KM Net Viewer Software provides network-wide management of all Kyocera Mita products as well as the competition on the network. It provides the critical information needed to insure optimal performance including printer status, reporting and error notification and more.


Storing print jobs on the optional Hard Disk Drive provides multiple print functions like quick copy, proof and hold, private print and job storage. These functions allow efficient document management from the desktop or directly from the control panel resulting in less network traffic, less waste and improved productivity.


The FS-9100 and FS-9500 laser printers come with a one year parts and labor warranty and an exclusive three year/500,000 print guarantee on the Drum and all critical modules.


Kyocera Mita's patented ECOSYS® technology pays serious attention to global environmental impact. Reduced waste results in minimal pollution and less harm to the environment. The FS-9100DN and FS-9500DN are Energy Star Compliant.
