Toshiba TEC UK Imaging Systems Ltd Toshiba has announced the launch of two new ranges of B&W multifunctional products. The advanced easy to use, reliable systems have print speeds of between 25 - 85ppm.Advanced eco friendly features reflect Toshiba's commitment to provide sustainable and ecologically friendly products

Using 3rd generation Toshiba e-BRIDGE technology the e-STUDIO255/305/355/455 series of MFPs offer efficient medium print speeds ranging from 25 to 45 pages per minute whilst the e-STUDIO555/655/755/88 high volume range have print speeds of between 55-85ppm. Building on proven technology, reliable high-quality printing, copying and scanning is guaranteed and with colour scanning available on the
e-STUDIO455 series productivity and efficiency is guaranteed.

The choice of output speeds, printing/finishing options, paper capacities of 7,600 sheets (e-STUDIO855 series) and 3,200 sheets (e-STUDIO455 series) coupled with the user friendly 8.5" WVGA colour touch screen panel and ability to change the toner on the fly improves uptime and accelerates user productivity. The overall total cost of ownership is significantly reduced through a high-capacity toner and advanced internal toner recycling system.

Other features which simplify the handling of the MFPs include the e-Filing box, an integrated temporary document archive, as well as 1-touch-templates which can be individually programmed for complex but routine tasks. Efficiency is further enhanced with the inclusion of an ERU (Easily Replaceable Unit) design, which further improves the overall productivity.

Seamless integration and connectivity to third-party systems and applications improves the overall operational efficiency as the e-BRIDGE controller can be connected to major workflows such as Microsoft SharePoint and Exchange, via the e-BRIDGE Open Platform connectors. All models are Windows Vista Premium Certified guaranteeing a superior performance and compatibility with the Windows Vista operating system.

These new systems deliver advanced environmental performances from every angle; a 'Super Sleep Mode' runs with a power supply of just 1 watt and if you couple the super sleep mode with the timed on/off functionality you will be saving pounds on electricity and carbon emissions! The internal toner recycling re-uses excess toner that is produced during the production of your prints meaning that there is no 'waste toner' produced, whilst the outside erase function allows you to save toner in copy/scan mode when you are taking an image of a book that has a 'shadow' effect in the margins. The 'Omit Blank Pages' function removes blank pages from print/scan jobs which saves paper and the internal toner recycling re-uses excess toner that is produced during the production of your prints meaning that there is no 'waste toner' produced and the elimination of the use of hazardous substances within the MFP has lead to a better environmental performance resulting in the compliance of the new Energy Star Standard.
