Lanier Launches Two MFPs for Advanced High-Volume Production

Press release from the issuing company

ATLANTA--May 1, 2003-- Lanier Worldwide, Inc. today announced the launch of the Lanier LD090 and LD0105 Digital MFPs, two systems engineered for productive digital copying, printing and scanning in data centers and centralized reprographics departments (CRDs) as well as conventional high-volume stand-alone environments. Both systems will be available immediately. "At the enterprise level, every improvement in productivity has a direct impact on the bottom line," said Dominic Pontrelli, vice president of Marketing for Lanier. "The LD090/LD0105 systems can help any organization increase the speed, quality and efficiency of document creation, distribution and finishing." Pontrelli continued, "They deliver a powerful combination of digital copying, optional network printing and scanning, and a truly impressive array of optional professional finishing capabilities. Plus, they feature the advanced technology users need to optimize workflow in connected, e-driven environments. So, users can easily put them to work in any high-volume application -- from high-traffic walk-up areas to networked offices and departments to CRDs and high-speed data centers." Both the LD090 and the LD0105 produce up to 90 or 105 black-and-white pages per minute (ppm) with 1200 x 1200 dpi image quality. The optional scan/print module adds 90 or 105 ppm network printing, plus 80 images per minute (ipm) scanning up to 600 dpi. Finishing options include two 3,000-sheet finishers, one with 100-sheet stapling in four positions and a second with saddle stitch stapling - (for the LD090 only). Both can be equipped with a two- or three-hole punch unit and/or a document interposer, which places pre-printed color or black-and-white covers or insert sheets prior to final finishing. Users can also select the optional production booklet maker, which creates folded, stapled and trimmed booklets. "In addition to a wireless LAN interface, both the LD090 and the LD0105 feature Next Generation Architecture, an open systems platform," Pontrelli said. "Essentially, this allows users to equip these systems with a wide range of software utilities and add functionality as their needs evolve -- without modifying the hardware or switching out modules." Current Lanier utilities available for the LD090 and LD0105 include GlobalScan for network scanning and document routing; SmartNetMonitor for remote device - monitoring and print queue management; DocumentMall for Web-based document storage and review; Printer Cost and Security Manager (PCSM) for accurate output tracking and secure printing; and Scan to Email for sending scanned originals as email attachments directly from the control panel.
