Product Overview

The TASKalfa 6002i Series are new entries to Kyocera’s black-and-white MFP lineup. They consist of three devices: the TASKalfa 4002i ($8,292), TASKalfa 5002i ($9,545) and TASKalfa 6002i ($11,228). They all offer printing, copying and scanning as standard functions with optional faxing.  The engine speeds for the 4002i, 5002i and 6002i are 40ppm, 50ppm and 60ppm, respectively. First-page-out time for copies are 4.5 seconds for the 4002i, 3.7 seconds for the 5002i and 3.4 seconds for the 6002i.

The processor runs at 1.2GHz and there is 4GB of memory which can be optionally expanded to 8GB. A 320GB hard drive is standard. PCL and PostScript is supported.  USB and Ethernet is standard; Gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi are optional.

All three devices include a 9″ customizable color touch screen that tilts at a 90-degree angle. The touch screen works like a tablet with touch-and-swipe functionality.

There’s also Kyocera’s HyPAS software platform that provide features such as Cloud Connect (for scanning to and printing from the cloud) and Mobile Print. Other features are the DMS Link for keeping up with document management needs, PinPoint Scan for scanning-to-PC functionality, and Microsoft Sharepoint Connector.

The devices also include Kyocera Fleet Services, a cloud-based monitoring service that lets dealers perform routine maintenance tasks for their customers remotely.

The TASKalfa 6002i Series are good buys to medium, large and enterprise-sized companies that request high-volume copying and printing and doesn’t need color.

Features

Standard paper input includes two 500-sheet drawers and a 150-sheet bypass. There is a variety of paper input options, including dual 500-sheet trays, dual 1,500-sheet trays and a 3,000-sheet large capacity tray. All of these trays accept paper size up to 12″ x 18″ – the bypass tray also accepts banners of up to 12″ x 48″. The maximum paper capacity is 7,150 sheets.

Automatic duplexing for copying and printing is standard. You have a choice of two optional document feeders: a 140-sheet RADF or a 270-sheet DADF (that scan two pages in a single pass).

Three finishers are available. One is a 500-sheet internal finisher with 50-sheet multiposition stapling and optional hole punch. The second finisher is a 1,000-sheet finisher with 50-sheet multiposition stapling. And the third is a 4,000-sheet finisher with 65-sheet multiposition stapling. It can accept additional modules. These modules include a 2/3-hole punch unit, optional booklet folder/tri-fold unit and a seven-bin mailbox unit with 100-sheet capacity in each bin.

Color scanning is supported, and functions include scan-to-email, to-folder, to-FTP, and to-USB. File formats include TIFF, PDF, PDF/A, and JPEG. Searchable PDF and OCR are optional.

The optional fax function supports a 33.6kbps modem, and utilizes up to 170MB of memory, maximum.  Internet fax is optional.

Standard security features include LDAP, network and local authentication, and secure print. The optional security kit includes data overwrite and encryption.

Love this machine!

on 2018-01-25 14:50:45

This is our second machine of this brand/type. The first one we wore out in eight years, but it almost never missed a beat. This newest machine is close, but we have had a few more problems with it. We purchased the extra side paper tray for the convenience of having 5000 pages available for big copy jobs. However, this tray has caused several service calls by itself, and we believe it has caused a few of the other problems within the base machine. But, the rest of the time, it is an awesome copier. It does everything we need it to do, and it's fast.
