"We know our customers are focusing on the bottom line now more than ever, and they’re looking for office solutions that are reliable, efficient and have the lowest TCO. Kyocera developed the ECOSYS product line to provide long-life consumables that minimally impact on the environment and the bottom line while delivering strong output speeds and superior print quality. We’re confident the FS-3140MFP and FS-3040MFP will meet our customers’ demands for performance and efficiency, and will deliver one of the lowest costs per print.”


Kyocera’s new monochrome MFPs incorporate an extensive list of standard features intended to improve the productivity of any office, offering flexible paper handling, standard paper-saving duplex and superior image performance, all in a compact, economical and ecological desktop footprint. The FS-3140MFP and FS-3040MFP offer a maximum 2,100 sheet paper capacity from up to five paper sources for high-volume output requirements.
