Brother Gulf, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of printing, communication and digital imaging products for homes, SOHOs and enterprises, has recently launched the world’s first A3 Colour Inkjet Multifunction Centre (MFC). Part of the ‘Justio’ series, the MFC-6490CW is the first ever ‘Professional Series’ Colour Inkjet from Brother, which incorporates the manufacturer’s pioneering ‘Tube Engine Method’ for printing.
With dimensions measuring a mere 540 (W) x 488 (D) x 323 (H) millimeters, the printer is ideal for shops, home offices and businesses with limited space as it provides the ability to print, copy, scan and fax up to A3 size. The A3 MFC was downsized by separating the ink cartridge from the print head and connecting them via an ink supply tube, which has made miniaturization possible. In addition, the head for commercial products has two lines for black, which improves the output speed, as commercial products require higher monochrome output performance.
“The development of this breakthrough technology that addresses space constraints, which is a primary concern of small and medium businesses as well as home office users, is a testament to Brother’s stronghold of pioneering technologies that shape this rapidly growing market,” said Shinji Tada, Managing Director, Brother Gulf.
“By launching the world’s first A3 Colour Inkjet Multifunction Centre, we are making our own contribution to aid the growth of the small and medium businesses, which is a sector that is exhibiting considerable growth across the region. It has become more important now, more than ever, to provide technology-based reinforcement, which can help organisations operate in a more cost-efficient manner,” added Tada.
Offering users a host of features including wireless networking, fast print speeds, an easy-to-read widescreen LCD display and intuitive controls, the world’s first A3 Colour Inkjet MFC incorporates a 50-sheet automatic document feeder, dual paper trays with up to 400 sheet total capacity and Super G3 33.6K bps fax modem.
Capable of printing up to 35/28 pages per minute on black/colour, the A3 printer also has four separate ink cartridges, which enable the user to replace only the colour that is empty. Furthermore, the MFC-6490CW offers a best-in-class, one-year limited warranty, making it a considerable value when compared to other colour inkjet all-in-one units currently available on the market.
The launch of the latest A3 Colour Inkjet MFC is part of the company’s introduction of 11 new colour inkjet printers – nine for the home users and SOHOs, and two for the SMB segment.
The MFC-6490CW is now available in the Middle East for US$ 399.
