Sooner or later your office will need a new multifunction printer. If it has been a while, you may be
amazed at what has changed. Here a just a few must know photocopier and office equipment jargon.
All In Ones:
All In ones are also known as multifunctional devices (MFDs) An All In One system performs multiple
functions in a single machine – copying, faxing, scanning and printing become centralised, offering
great control and efficiency.
How much space is available to you? What equipment will your new Multi-Functional Device replace
and how much space will this free up? Systems can fit on a desk, or be free standing. The footprint is
simply the amount of space your new printer takes up and it is obviously important that the system you
choose is right for the available space.
More savings and efficiencies can be gained through networking your multifunctional device so that
several users have access. When networking, it is important to include sufficient member to handle
Sorting, stacking, stapling, punching, booklet making and folding (to just name a few) can be added to
any to your multifunctional devices, which in turn can save a great deal on labour costs.
The control panel is the area where you find all the control functions for your device. The control panel
is usually a LCD display with easy-to-follow instructions. These guide the use through such variables
as number of copies required, paper size, copy reduction or copy enlargement, etc.
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)
An automatic document feeder enables you to make copies without lifting the platen. You load the
original document into the feeder, press start, and let the device move each sheet on and off the platen
– reducing time and monotony.
These are only a few terms – keep you posted with more next month!!!
