Muratec launches first colour compact multifunctional

 Muratec Europe (UK), manufacturer of multifunction office equipment and business solutions, has announced a major product development with the launch of the MFX-C3400. As the company's first colour multifunctional, the Muratec MFX-C3400 combines high quality A3 colour output with flexible multifunction features for copy, print, scan and fax, as standard. Yet this flexible functionality comes with a compact footprint, making the MFX-C3400 the smallest A3 colour multifunctional in its class.

For colour output the powerful MFX-C3400 has a 26 page per minute (ppm) print and copy speed, making output of colour documents, such as reports and training notes, easy and quick. For black-and-white output the MFX-C3400 has a fast 34ppm print speed.

The MFX-C3400 delivers high quality colour output with a super-detail resolution of 1200 by 600dpi for outstanding results. Muratec's proven colour print technology ensures subtle tones and gradations of colour to give photographic quality to images in business documents. An RADF (recirculating automatic document feeder) allows the versatile MFX-C3400 to perform fully automatic duplex copying and scanning. Routinely duplex printing and copying drastically reduces paper consumption, saving costs and helping the environment.

As well as printing onto A3 stock up to 200gsm in weight, the versatile MFX-C3400 can print full colour banners up to 1,200mm in length. This means customers can produce full colour banners for marketing, internal promotions and point-of-sale using the flexible MFX-C3400.

Designed for high productivity, the Muratec MFX-C3400 is supplied network ready for network printing and scanning. PCL5c and Post Script 3 are supported as standard providing powerful network functionality for workgroups.

The MFX-C3400 is really easy to use thanks to a large backlit touchscreen, making it simple to intuitively manage document imaging tasks, such as scanning. It is easy to securely scan to folders or archive applications, as well as scanning to e-mail for sharing printed documents with colleagues without the need to print. The versatile MFX-C3400 can also scan direct to USB memory stick.

For faxing the MFX-C3400 has a 33.6k bps modem for fast fax transmission. ITU-T Super Group 3 standard is supported with JBIG compression. The broadcast fax facility can be used for up to 530 destinations.

Commenting on the launch of the MFX-C3400, Stewart Carroll, General Manager of Muratec Europe (UK) said, "The groundbreaking MFX-C3500 from Muratec has been designed from first principles to provide a cost-effective and highly productive colour multifunctional, that is packed with technology. Yet its compact footprint means that it fits easily into even the smallest offices.
