KYOCERA MITA Launches the Smallest 15 Page-Per-Minute Monochrome Digital Imaging System in its Class

Fairfield, New Jersey – November 21, 2003 - Kyocera Mita, one of the world's leading document imaging companies, today introduced a 15 page per minute digital copy system, the KM-1500. The KM-1500 is configured with a standard 250-sheet paper drawer, a 50 sheet multi-purpose tray (MPT), 16MB of standard RAM, (upgradeable to 144MB) for “Scan Once, Print Many” capability, electronic sort and features a maximum volume of 15,000 pages per month.

“The KM-1500 fills a need for the Segment 1 marketplace,” said William Cassidy, product marketing manager, monochrome MFPs for Kyocera Mita America. “Perfect for businesses that have limited space such as doctor’s office or law firm, the device is the smallest and lightest copier in its class and includes long-life consumables and monocomponent technology. This translates into an aggressive cost per copy for end-users as well as a footprint that won’t get in the way.”

In addition, the KM-1500 can be ordered to include an optional 50-sheet document processor and an additional 250-sheet paper drawer. The device accepts 16 to 28 lb. Bond from the paper drawers and 16 lb. Bond to 90 lb. Index from the MPT and can easily process plain and recycled paper, as well as transparencies.

The KM-1500 comes with long-life components including an OPC drum (up to 100,000 prints) and is backed by the most comprehensive warranty in the industry.
