Xerox this month unveiled a broad selection of new additions to its printer line up. The popular Phaser range of monochrome laser printers has been expanded with the addition of the new Phaser 3150 and 5500 models. The 3150 is a small, 20ppm desktop device with 32Mb of memory and a 166Mhz processor while the 5500 is a more powerful network printer capable of 50ppm with a 500Mhz processor and 128Mb of memory as standard.
The company also announced new additions to its range of monochrome multifunction devices. The WorkCentre 165/175 models provide network printing and copying facilities in a footprint roughly 30 per cent smaller than previous Xerox devices. They also add new finishing options like hole punching, multi-position stapling and folding. Also available is the WorkCentre Pro variant of these models which adds network scanning to the feature set.
The colour multifunction range also gets a boost with three new models, the WorkCentre Pro C2128, C2636 and C3545. These devices offer a range of capabilities from 28 to 45ppm in monochrome and 21 to 35ppm in colour. Like the monochrome models, these devices are available with a selection of optional finishing functions and fax capabilities.
Bertrand Cerisier, director of product marketing for Xerox Europe’s office group said “Companies are under increasing pressure to reduce overheads and work more productively with documents, and true office productivity will only become a reality when documents are able to transition seamlessly between electronic and hardcopy forms.”
Xerox also announced a range of new service offerings designed to provide sales and service packages for different sized organisations. The new eClick package provides supplies and maintenance management for larger customers while ServicePack and PagePack are designed for the SME sector. The former being for those who want to pay for toner as and when they need it, the later for those who want a service package that includes the ongoing cost of consumables.
