The KM-8530 is a high performance device offering customers a standard 100 sheet document processor, duplexing, 4-way 2,150 sheet paper supply, 20GB multi-purpose hard disk drive (HDD) and an easy to use, wide format Touch Screen Interface. Additionally, there is a choice of finishing options tailored to complete the user’s most complex document needs, including 100 sheet edge stapling, saddle-stitching, an optional punch unit, Z-fold/punch unit, trimmer, choice of 4,000 sheet paper decks, and post process cover inserter.

Optional features of the KM-8530 include network printing and network scanning.
