Kyocera has introduced a monochrome version of its TaskAlfa Pro 15000c sheet-fed inkjet, the Pro 15000c/B, offering up to 150ppm throughput with monthly production volumes of up to 1 million pages and aimed at transactional print and mailing houses.

Based on the existing colour model, the new press is said to be highly efficient and economical. It uses Kyocera’s proprietary inkjet technology and large print heads to enable fast single-pass printing and can be powered from a standard 13A socket, using up to 70% less power than laser-based counterparts.

Martin Fairman, group aales & marketing director at Kyocera UK, said, ‘The TaskAlfa Pro 15000c/B is a robust addition to our production print portfolio and will ensure more customers with high-volume print requirements can get their work done efficiently and at the lowest possible cost. 

‘Sustainability is a crucial consideration for us at Kyocera, and we always want to ensure this philosophy shines through in our products. The TaskAlfa Pro 15000c/B is another significant step forward in this endeavour, as it enables customers to fulfil their print needs without worrying about environmental cost.’

UK customers can benefit from two climate protection initiatives in partnership with PrintReleaf and MyClimate: Kyocera will plant one tree for every 8333 sheets printed on their inkjet device, and carbon offset the production and transportation of the printer plus genuine consumables for its standard rated lifetime. MyClimate invests in international projects assessed by Gold Standard as contributing to carbon reduction and the UN’s sustainable development goals. PrintReleaf is a certified reforestation partner.
