Designed for today's demanding businesses, the TASKalfa colour MFP series combines exceptional colour printing, scanning, copying and optional faxing, along with easy-to-use features that maximise efficiency and streamline tasks.

The exceptional and consistent image quality of the new TASKalfa series is the result of a new colour engine by Kyocera, featuring 8-bit colour output and incorporating Kyocera's new micro-particle toner which reduces consumption and energy costs with its lower fixing temperature.
All models incorporate an 8.5-inch colour touch screen control panel, print double –siding as standard and can also accommodate up to 4,100 sheets, with the ability to accommodate heavier paper stock (up to 120 lb Index), all with advanced finishing and paper handling options.

Introducing TASKalfa - Kyocera's New Product Brand
Kyocera's new TASKalfa product brand mark, which means that every end-user's need - or task - is always a top priority, is also defining a new global, strategic direction for future Kyocera MFP solutions.
This "#1 Priority" mission has been the inspiration behind the advanced technology features that Kyocera has incorporated within its new TASKalfa series, as well as the stimulus for a new global branding initiative and the company's bold move in designing the product line's new sleek black and silver exterior.
