Lanier Launches Multifunction System for Duplex Document Production

Press release from the issuing company

ATLANTA--Feb. 18, 2002--Lanier Worldwide, Inc. today introduced the Lanier 5618 Digital Copier/Printer/Fax System, a multifunction solution that delivers fast simplex and duplex output in a workgroup-friendly, space-saving design. "The Lanier 5618 is the right choice for workgroups that are looking to replace an older, analog copier and a conventional laser printer with a single, powerful document management system," said Dominic Pontrelli, vice president of Marketing for Lanier. "It provides everything workgroups want in a high-quality digital system -- outstanding image quality, ample productivity and dependable performance. It offers automatic duplexing with optional network printing and faxing in a compact design that fits just about anywhere." The Lanier 5618 produces up to 18 single-sided or 15 dual-sided digital copies per minute at 600 dpi. Built-in duplexing can dramatically improve productivity while saving paper. Other high-productivity features include a 6.9 second first-copy time, electronic sorting that eliminates manual collating, an optional Reversing Automatic Document Feeder and one or two optional 500-sheet paper banks. The system also has separate toner, developer and drum units, which help reduce operating costs. "Essentially, the Lanier 5618 gives you an easy way to optimize productivity and document quality in mid-volume workgroup environments," Pontrelli said. "Because it uses a digital engine, it easily outperforms analog copiers, and makes it simple to improve efficiency even more with network printing and high-speed faxing." As a network printer, the 5618 produces 18 pages per minute, with single- and dual-sided print capabilities. It also has emulations and drivers for PC and Macintosh platforms for smooth network integration. As a fax system, the 5618 features a 33.6 Kbps modem for fast transmission and lower long-distance charges, a 1.2 second per page scan speed, plus 32 one-touch keys and 100 abbreviated codes.
