Toshiba Enters High-Volume Copier Market

Press release from the issuing company

IRVINE, Calif., (May 17, 2004) – Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (TABS) rounds out its copier product line by introducing the company’s fastest product offerings to date – the Toshiba e-STUDIO900/1050 series – with the e-STUDIO1050 being Toshiba’s first Segment Six model (defined as copiers producing 91 or more prints-per-minute). Producing digital copies at 90 and 105 pages-per-minute (PPM) respectively, the e-STUDIO900 and 1050 are fully-featured monochrome copiers designed to meet the high demands of production printing environments and corporate offices with high-volume copying and printing needs. “The availability of the e-STUDIO900/1050 series puts Toshiba in the best possible position, enabling us to capitalize on the significant growth opportunity industry analysts anticipate in the Segment Five and Six markets,” said Mark Mathews, vice president, Marketing for TABS. “And the fact that Toshiba now provides a full line spanning all product segments offers a significant advantage to our GEM (government, education and major account) dealers and customers interested in working with a single source provider.” Superior Features The e-STUDIO900 and e-STUDIO1050 scan original documents at 80 PPM and produce exceptional image quality at 1,200 dpi. The system’s job queue feature allows users to scan up to 20 copy jobs into memory, with a job list screen showing the estimated time it will take to complete each job. Offering optional network printing and scanning capabilities, both models are being launched with an external EFI controller, the industry’s high-end EB105EX. In addition, each model includes large standard memory of 128MB RAM and two 40GB hard drives, with a new long-life 700K drum for significantly increased uptime. Industry-Leading Paper Capacity Both the e-STUDIO900 and the e-STUDIO1050 offer a 3,000-sheet standard capacity through a tandem letter-size tray that holds 1,000 sheets per side and two lower cassettes that each house 500 sheets from statement to ledger-size paper. A unique optional large capacity feeder provides three additional paper sources and 4,550 extra sheets of statement to letter-size paper. An additional option is a 500-sheet bypass tray, providing a seventh paper source that will accept paper as large as 12” by 18”, bringing the system’s total paper capacity to an industry leading 8,050 sheets. Full-Range of Finishing Capabilities The finishing options available on the e-STUDIO900/1050 series include copying of covers, chapters and tab extensions, 100-sheet stapling, hole punch and Z-folding to further enhance the look and functionality of copy and print jobs. An interposer option allows pre-printed pages to be merged with copied or printed pages, enabling the production of professional looking jobs quickly, easily and with the lowest possible production costs. Exceptional Ease-of-Use Users of the e-STUDIO900 and e-STUDIO1050 have complete access to the copier and network features through an oversized remote LCD Touch Screen Control Panel. The Control Panel is positioned above the copier at the user’s eye level and features well-designed icons and easy-to-follow menus for ultimate ease-of-use. In addition, the system’s dual toner bottles allow for quick toner changes and uninterrupted output. The e-STUDIO900 and e-STUDIO1050 are available through Toshiba’s nationwide network of dealers for the suggested list price of $41,000 and $50,000 (USD) respectively.
