looking for inkjet with A3 duplex copy function

hello,

i have a Brother inkjet MFCJ6510DW, this machine has a built in duplexer and can copy/print up to A3 size paper.

While printing is done by "automatic" duplex, you can copy an A3 by putting first side 1 on the scanner, then side 2 on the scanner.

The problem is that when copying/printing an A3 sheet of paper on both sides.  The machine reduces the size of the original document with about 2cm.

i'm now looking for an inkjet that has A3 size capabilities and that can copy/print an A3 paper on both sides WITHOUT an reduction of the actual sheet.

Since we copy construction plans, the measurements on the paper are no longer correct.

anyone knows an A3 inkjet multifunction with duplex (for copy function as well).

Very few inkjets can duplex. Laser MFPs can do it, but A3 size makes them expensive.

Also, to copy an *entire* A3 page you normally need a printer that can handle larger than A3, as most printers cannot print to the edge of the paper. A typical margin is 5 mm. Hence, to print or copy a full A3 the printer must use paper that's 10 mm larger all around.
