Kyocera Mita Announces KM-2530 and KM-3530 Digital Imaging Systems

FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- Oct. 10, 2001 -- Kyocera Mita America, one of the world's leading document imaging companies, introduces two comprehensive digital imaging systems designed for workgroups and large departments. The KM-2530 and the KM-3530 are both based on print engine technology featuring long-life components, reduced number of scheduled service calls and significantly less user maintenance. They also provide outstanding image quality, a diverse range of finishing options, and an extensive set of features to provide effortless document production. Accommodating paper intensive offices with diverse imaging needs, users receive fast 25 and 35 copies per minute output speeds and a low cost of service.



“Kyocera Mita is committed to providing the highest quality hard copy solutions at an affordable price,” said Robert Siebold, Product Marketing Manager, Copiers/Fax. “Our KM-2530 and KM-3530 digital copiers offer high-volume output, versatile printing and finishing options and superior paper handling capabilities. The KM-2530 and the KM-3530 can also be networked for printing and scanning functionality, creating a multifunctional copy/print/scan system to meet every document need.”


Engineered with a best in class long life 400,000 image (KM-2530) 500,000 image (KM-3530) Amorphous Silicon Drum (aSi) and high yield 34,000 image Toner Container, both copiers produce more images with fewer scheduled interruptions of any model in their class. With this innovative technology, users receive higher yields on consumables and lowered maintenance costs while still supplying high quality images.


A well designed Control Panel and wide Touch Screen Interface (TSI) makes for easy access to the many features of the KM-2530 and KM-3530. To further simplify use, the TSI can be user customized, Shortcut Keys can be added and the User Choice Screen can be tailored with a variety of favorite features.


The KM-2530 and KM-3530 copiers extend the benefits of document and network scanning at full rated speed to all users from the convenience of their desktop. Standard with Print/Scan System N, the network scanning ability turns paper-based originals into electronic data that can be emailed or placed into a PC folder directly from the Control Panel. A document can even be distributed to several destination folders simultaneously utilizing Group Transmission, which greatly simplifies the flow of information.


One sided, two sided and bound originals are scanned automatically using the optional Document Processor or the Platen. Kyocera Mita's wide Touch Screen Interface makes scanning as easy as making a copy.


Designed around a Kyocera Mita developed Power PC 740 350 MHz CPU controller, the KM-2530 and KM-3530 are ideal for busy workgroups with varied printing needs. The standard 10/100 BaseTX Network Card enables fast 25* ppm/35* ppm output at a fast 1200 dpi resolution. PCL5e, PCL6, KPDL3 emulations are fully supported. An optional Hard Disk Drive is available, enabling electronic document storage and retrieval. (*letter size.)


The Kyocera Mita universal KX driver technology supports all Kyocera Mita network devices operating in Windows(TM) 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0 and 2000. One of the many advantages of this driver is the common user interface. Regardless whether the device is a copier or printer, monochrome or full color, users will always find the features they need within the same tab of the driver.


The KM-2530 and KM-3530 deliver results with a fast 3.9 second first copy with a resolution of 600 dots per inch. The KM-2530 and the KM-3530 produce crisp, clear black and white images for professionally looking documents.


The KM-2530 reproduces 25 letter-sized copies a minute -- perfect for small workgroups with output requirements of up to 85,000 images per month.


The KM-3530 produces 35 letter size copies per minute and is designed for larger departments and workgroup environments with monthly volumes of up to 120,000 images.


The extensive range of paper handling capabilities of the KM-2530 and the KM-3530 include letter, legal, ledger, transparencies, labels and 110 pound stock. With Dual User Adjustable 500 sheet paper drawers, a 200 sheet Multi- Purpose Tray and an optional 3,000 sheet paper deck or dual 500-sheet drawers, extended job runs can be completed without having to frequently replenish the paper supply. With the KM-2530 and the KM-3530, paper can even be added while the copier is running.
