DSales introduces Develop ineo 958 for light mono production

DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for Develop range of multifunctional document imaging systems, has launched the Develop ineo 958 for in-house print rooms and pay-for-print monochrome light production. With an output speed of 95 A4 mono prints per minute, the ineo 958 is not only 20 ppm faster than the predecessor model, it also offers a number of new features for even better performance. A new dual colour scanner has a capacity of 300 sheets and scans at speeds of up to 240 ipm in a single pass.

The maximum paper capacity of 6,650 sheets allows even high-volume print jobs to be completed without paper refills. A 150-sheet bypass tray also brings greater media flexibility, by allowing 1200 by 297mm banners to be printed in house. The ineo 958's media flexibility of up to 300 gsm weight (256 gsm via paper trays and auto duplex) and SRA3 size comes with mixplex/mixmedia and an intelligent paper catalogue functionality, enabling this device to deliver on a wide range of print jobs, for increased productivity.

However speed and media capacity have not been gained with excessive size. The small footprint of the ineo 958 means that this entry-level production printing system fits easily into a confined in-house print room or commercial pay-for-print shop.

Because job throughput requires more than raw speed, the ineo 958 is available with a wide choice of inline finishing options. These include a 100-sheet stapling function, booklet making, post insertion and an A3 Z-fold unit that is integrated into the finisher to save space. Operation is also easy and intuitive for non-skilled operatives using an innovative nine inch colour touch screen panel with pop-up windows open for all function settings, allowing seamless integration of document workflows. An upright operating panel option is also available to ensure good usability when standing in front of the device.
Support for third-party software is provided with an open API interface that integrates numerous applications and both Internal Web Server and Near Field Communication authentication give the ineo 958 a high degree of scalability.

For DSales Wayne Snell, Product Manager stated, "The ineo 958 successfully bridges the gap between the office MFP and light production print market segments. It offers outstanding black-and-white job throughput with the flexibility of high-speed colour scanning. For in-house print rooms or commercial digital print providers the ineo 958 is the perfect solution for fast black-and-white light job production."
