Brother UK upgrades flagship business inkjet series, boosting machine life and performance

Business technology solutions provider Brother UK, has upgraded its X-Series range of professional A3 inkjet printers with longer machine life and improved performance, helping companies to print more sustainably and efficiently.

The upgraded X-Series inkjet range is suited to environments with higher print volume requirements and feature faster print speeds of 30 images per minute (ipm) compared to the 22ipm delivered by the previous range.

The new machines have a longer lifespan, which will help customers to reduce print costs by replacing devices less frequently. The monthly duty cycle on the new models – the amount of pages the vendor recommends users to print per month – has been boosted from 2,000 pages to 3,500 pages.

Brother UK expects the upgraded line up to form a key part of its managed print services (MPS) offering. MPS programmes are designed to help companies work more efficiently by providing better visibility and control of print across the business and reducing admin time by automatically ordering replacement inks and toners when needed.

At the end of MPS agreements, devices are refurbished and redeployed by the vendor, helping users to contribute to the circular economy.

Other feature improvements include better technology controlling flushing ink to create sharper printouts for users and full pigment-based inks delivering denser blacks and more vivid colours for documents.

Sara Diggle, SMB business unit manager at Brother UK, said: “Our flagship X-Series inkjet range now boasts an even more competitive spec sheet, with significant upgrades that help users to print more efficiently, while further meeting the goals of IT professionals.

“Sustainability matters to every business, with half of IT decision makers telling us in recent research* that it’s very important to them. The X-Series inkjet range delivers on their ambitions to specify more energy efficient technology, and to contribute to circular economies when used as part of a managed print service.

“Upgrading our X-Series inkjet range is a key part of a wider strategy to refresh our range of inkjet models – enhancing how our advanced technology can support teams fulfilling the most demanding tasks securely and efficiently across any setting.

“Enhancing the range also strengthens our position as a leading vendor of choice when businesses require both laser and inkjet models to meet their printing requirements, following HP’s PageWide withdrawal.”

The X-Series comprises of the MFC-J5955DW, MFC-J6955DW and MFC-J6957DW. Each model features a 9.3cm LCD for user operation, with wired, wireless, USB and NFC connectivity.

Each model comes with up to three 250-page input trays and a 100-page multi-purpose media tray. A 20-sheet automatic document feeder supports faster scanning. The high yield supplies available also cut the time required to replace consumables while also reducing waste.

The brand’s A3 inkjet models are designed to be solutions ready, which enable customers to upgrade their devices to refine their business processes and improve their workflows.

The X-Series upgrade follows the launch of Brother’s Mini Business and Mini Regular A4 inkjet ranges last year, designed to meet the needs of small offices and home offices as teams move to hybrid working arrangements.
