Hi,

We are in the process of searching for a replacement colour laser printer that can handle the following:

Printing on thick paper of 280GSM, if possible double sided.
Can cope with 200,000 pages in 18 months.

Any suggestions?

At present we have two Epson Aculaser 8600, which we have found to not be reliable enough and the mp tray does not always take the paper in correctly / or at all.

As far as I know there is no desktop colour laser that is guaranteed to take 280 gsm. 220 is usually the maximum. Some of the large copier/printers (eg Xerox) take 250 gsm. Duplexing is limited to much lower weights, usually no more than 160 gsm.

200000 pages is not an excessive amount for any colour laser. Small A4 machines will handle 300000, large A3 easily cope with 500000 and more

Okay, i tihnk I may need to opt for a copier as they seem to more industrial and able to cope with the higher weight paper.

HP seemed to have some but couldn't find an example and Epson had some but appears that is not really a desire!!  LOL

Granted they are from a variety of locations but corresponding with a local dealer should provide a local solution.  :-)

Hope this Helps!!!

The Xerox WorkCentre 7655 & 7665 will handle 300 gsm from the bypass tray - but still only 220 gsm from the main trays. But we're talking > US$18000... See

Have been able to find a Konica Minolta that can handle 280GSm and 256gsm duplex.

It appears a Konica Minolta system might have been your solution and was a company recommended to check above.  Any Points??

Thanks
