From a standard feature point of view, the KM-C2030 and KM-C3130 come with a 250 Sheet Multi-Purpose Drawer, 500 Paper Drawer, with the ability to handle full-bleed paper and up to 140 lb. Index through the Multi-Purpose Drawer.

“Kyocera Mita is moving very aggressively into the corporate color arena with its product line of high-performance printers and multi-functional devices,” said Mike Pietrunti, vice president of marketing at Kyocera Mita. “By combining Kyocera Mita’s color devices with highly efficient document management tools, customers can expect to produce high quality color document in an efficient, cost-effective manner.”

Combining Kyocera Mita’s KM-C2030 and KM-C3130 devices with the optional Electronics For Imaging’s (NASDAQ: EFII) Fiery X3e+ embedded print controller, enables an entire workgroup to increase productivity by creating finished, full-color documents right from the user’s computer. The optional embedded Fiery X3e+ print controller offers customers the ability to perform network Scanning, Printing, Internet Fax and overall network management. For scanning, the user has the ability to take an entire page, or just a portion, save the document as a JPEG, PDF or TIFF, and retrieve the files using Fiery WebScan. The optional network scanning capability is TWAIN compliant and provides the user with Scan to HDD, Scan to eMail, and Scan to FTP with the benefits of 31 scans per minute at up to 600 dpi resolution.

Additionally, the KM-C2030 and KM-C3130 offer network Printing and Internet Fax. For network Printing, the device includes a Pentium III 700 MHz processor, 10 GB hard drive and standard 128 MB of RAM (Upgradeable to 256 MB). The KM-C2030 and KM-C3130 support the major page description languages Adobe Postscript 3 and PCL5e. Through the Internet Fax option, both devices can send TIFF files as e-mail attachments to a PC or to an optional third tray of the finisher.

The KM-C2030 and KM-C3130 include long-life components and utilize polymerized toner, the latest in toner technology. Polymerized toner provides end users with sharper printed detail, higher quality reproduction, and eliminates fuser oil; which increases the device’s efficiency and reduces unscheduled maintenance.
