Epson has announced the launch of the new AcuLaser M8000N series of A3 laster printers.

Working at full 1200 dpi resolution and capable of delivering up to 44 pages per minute in A4, the AL-M8000N is Epson’s most advanced monochrome laser printer. Utilising pioneering print technology to deliver optimum cost efficiency for business, the AL-M8000N Series produces exceptional looking documents and high end finishing options at a very low overall cost.
Lyle Mitchley, product manager at Epson South Africa, says: “Epson is proud of the success of its A3 monochrome laser printer product line, and the AcuLaser M8000N series demonstrates our commitment and continued innovation in this market segment. Having access to high-end monochrome printers while keeping costs to a minimum is a big concern for businesses with high print volumes, and this printer performs exceptionally well to that respect.
“The AL-M8000N series is perfect for those who rely on A3 documents in their day-to-day working environment. Moreover, the size of the AL-M8000N is very compact for an A3 printer – almost the same as an A4 machine – ensuring that minimal office space is needed.”
The AL-M8000N Series use genuine Adobe PostScript® 3, and provides support for PCL6, PCL5e, ESC/Page and PDF Direct Print. Also as standard, the series provides Ethernet 10/100 Base TX, high-speed USB, parallel interface and optional Type B interface for added connectivity.
Additional features include space for RAM expansion from the standard 128MB to 578MB, as well as CompactFlash support. Advanced secure functions, including Confidential Jobs, AntiCopy Pattern Function and protocol SSL are also supported, ensuring confidential print jobs remain safe in the office environment.
Alongside the AL-M8000N base model, there is a series of machines available offering added functionality including an AL-M8000DN duplex version and an AL-M8000D3TN duplex version with three additional paper cassettes.
Versatility is key to the AL-M8000N, with paper handling ranging from 650 sheets with the AL-M8000N to 2150 sheets with the AL-M8000D3TN. All models also support an optional document stacker to sort and separate different print jobs; a valuable benefit for busy offices.
