Brother’s New Business Colour Laser Range Announced

Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd has ushered in a new range of leadership worthy laser printers and multi-function centres (MFCs). The new models are designed to cater for a wide range of workforces, starting from 5 to 500 employees. In the single function range they have introduced in the Professional Colour Laser Series: HL-L8260CDW, HL-L8360CDW and HL-9310CDW. For mult-function, the MFC-L8690CDW, MFC-L8900CDW and MFC-L9570CDW.

Featuring duplex colour and b&w printing, the new range of Brother laser printers are also fast – printing at up to 31 pages per minute (ppm). Scanning in the MFC range isn’t too shabby either, scanning at up to 100ipm.

“Brother is committed to be ‘At Your Side’ today, tomorrow, and for many more years to come. The new Professional Colour Laser Series is engineered to be reliable and affordable while enhancing business productivity and efficiency over the long term,” – Stefanie Dixon, Marketing Specialist at Brother Australia.

In terms of how much better these perform over their predecessors, Epson believe:

  • 197% increase in maximum paper input
  • 40% increase in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) capacity
  • 50% increase in maximum toner yield

The new range also provide the following benefits:

  • Advanced paper handling – the brother printers can scale up to meet growing printing needs with their optional paper trays
  • Significantly reducing the costs of colour printing – the new printers can use Brother’s optional super and ultra high-yield cartridges
  • Protect what is critical for your business – the printers support advanced security capabilities to protect confidential print jobs
  • Outstanding reliability and efficiency – the new range of Brother printers are designed to be punished in the workforce
  • Designed for mobility and flexibility – keeping up with the latest trends, the new line-up will also support wireless printing from iOS and Android devices
