The Brother L6000 Mono Laser Series. Possibilities you didn’t expect.

Aug 1st, 2016

Brother International, a leader in business IT peripherals that focuses on the ‘Customer-First’ approach, has launched the new L6000 mono laser series that delivers high speed reliability, low cost of ownership and productivity for large corporates. Designed in Japan, the L6000 range offers a mono laser printer (HL-L6400DW) and a 4-in-1 multi-function centre (MFC-L6900DW) serving high print volume workgroup environments.

“The L6000 mono laser series offers the reliable performance that Brother is known for, coupled with significant innovations to meet the expectations of a modern workplace,” says Dale de Villiers, marketing manager at Brother South Africa. “Businesses are looking for user-friendly, cost-efficient solutions with outstanding high-volume, quality output that can scale as they grow. The L6000 models provide an excellent combination of dependability, versatility and security to meet office needs.”

Brother has enhanced the new series significantly based on customer feedback, achieving several firsts in the process. The L6000 models are the first mono lasers by Brother to print at up to 50 pages per minute (ppm). The MFC-L6900DW multi-function centre is the first to feature a new heavy duty Automatic Document Feeder with an 80-sheet capacity, a 60% improvement over previous models. Maximum paper input capacity has improved by 150% to a maximum input of 2,600 pages³, another ‘first’, while the dual CIS supports 100 images per minute (ipm) scanning², another new introduction.

Superior productivity and ease of use

Productivity is a key feature of the L6000 series. High volume print jobs are easily managed, without the need for frequent paper reloads. The default paper tray can hold up to 520 sheets, and optional upgrades of either two additional 520-sheet paper trays or a 4 x 520 sheet tower tray on a stabilizer base provide businesses with a total input capacity of as many as 2,600 sheets. An optional 4-bin Mailbox with stacker and sorter on the HL-L6400DW makes it even easier to share a printer as bins can be assigned to individual users or groups. The Mailbox can be configured to expand to 800 sheets.

Better total cost of ownership (TCO)

Brother’s latest mono laser family is built for high efficiency and cost effectiveness. The laser printer and multi-function centre support monthly print cycles of up to 25,000 pages, while an ultra high-yield inbox toner enables up to 20,000^ printed pages with cost savings in mind. Compared to the previous mono laser range, the L6000 series has raised maximum paper output capacity by 600%, and expanded toner yield by 66% for vastly improved TCO.

Simplify business operations

The new models are easily managed over a network with Brother’s BRAdmin Professional Software. This software includes a suite of security solutions to ensure that documents remain confidential. It is also a network management tool that supports remote configurations and the monitoring of useful information such as page count, toner and drum status. Print costs can be controlled better with the option of setting print quotas for users, while instant notification of printer downtime lets customers attend to the problem quickly.

Customised workflow solutions

As each business is unique and may operate under unpredictable conditions, Brother has developed flexible workflow solutions that can be customised if required. Brother Special Solutions Customisation (SSC) enables Brother to collaborate with a customers on modifying the device for specific business needs. The Brother Solutions Interface (BSI), a web-based service platform aims to improve customers’ productivity and efficiency by allowing software developers to create custom solutions easily.

Mobile convenience

Brother also supports the convenient integration of mobile devices into the workflow. Brother iPrint&Scan, Apple AirPrint® and Google Cloud Print™ enable users to print directly from their mobile devices. JPEG and PDF documents can be printed, while faxes and copies can be previewed. Apple products can also save documents to iCloud.

Buyers Laboratory (BLI), a widely-respected testing and resource company, has evaluated several of the new Brother models. BLI noted the significant business value of the new machines: “The Brother models offer competitive to lower than average cost of ownership,” states Marlene Orr, BLI’s Director, Office Equipment Product Analysis.

BLI recognised the machines’ reliability, particularly in high-volume printing. “Even during peak periods, users won’t see any noticeable slowdowns in output speeds,” says Orr. She also notes the ease of use: “The smartphone-like interface on the Touchscreen models reduces the learning curve, and NFC connectivity eliminates guesswork for mobile printing, offers badge authentication, and a quick link to troubleshooting information.” In addition, BLI pointed to robust scan features that boost worker productivity, and simple affordable sharing of content and collaboration in the cloud with Brother WebConnect+. Brother WebConnect requires an internet connection and an account with the desired service.

The L6000 mono laser series from Brother includes a 3-year on-site warranty and can be purchased through Brother International South Africa’s authorised resellers.
