Achieving Pantone approval is a significant milestone for the TASKalfa 552ci MFP, as enterprise users can now generate professional-grade documents and collateral using Pantone’s industry-recognized global standard PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®. To achieve this approval, Pantone’s color scientists and analysts developed expertly tuned look-up tables (LUT) specific to Kyocera’s TASKalfa 552ci MFP, enabling enterprise users to print the best possible simulations of PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM Colors. Pantone conducted rigorous testing, which took into consideration the effect of the toner, print driver, resolution, and engine of the TASKalfa 552ci on PANTONE Color reproduction.

“The composition of colors is reliant upon the printing system, and Kyocera’s award-winning TASKalfa 552ci MFP exceeds the high standards that Pantone demands of candidates for its color matching approval,” said Danielle Wolowitz, senior manager, MFP product and solutions, Kyocera Mita America. “We designed the TASKalfa 552ci with the superior image quality, performance and ultra-reliability enterprise users have come to expect from Kyocera MFPs. And now, with PANTONE Color support, we have brought its performance to another level, ensuring consistent, dynamic output for color documents produced with true PANTONE Color across our entire TASKalfa 500ci color MFP series.”
