KYOCERA Sets New World Record for Durability in A4 Printing Equipment's Photoreceptor Drum

<p>KYOTO, Japan -- Kyocera Corporation (NYSE:KYO)(TOKYO:6971) today announced the availability of its KYOCERA Mega Surface Series amorphous silicon (a-Si) photoreceptor drum, which offers record durability as a core component in electrophotographic printing equipment — including laser printers and multifunctional products (MFPs). The A4-sized a-Si drum is now available for shipment to equipment manufacturers worldwide. </p> <p>The new product represents an industry first*1 in successfully employing a hard amorphous carbon (a-C) thin-film to form the drum's surface-protecting outer layer. In Kyocera's</p> <p> own testing, this development makes it possible for a single A4 drum to print approximately one million sheets — more than triple the life of Kyocera's conventional A4 a-Si photoreceptor drum, which was already the industry's most durable, with a lifespan estimated by Kyocera to be approximately 300,000 A4-sized sheets*2. </p> <p>Additionally, Kyocera's rigorous internal testing is designed to yield conservative durability estimates. Third-party testing of Kyocera's A3-sized imaging equipment has demonstrated 2.5-million-page durability with no drum replacement*3. The new series represents the first a-Si drum in the A4 class to demonstrate million-print durability using Kyocera's own extreme test parameters. </p>

The Katun toner cartridge’s dispensing mechanism also reduces the chance of unwanted toner spillage during the removal process.”</p> <p>Please note: A “No-Chip” version of this product is still available for interested dealers.</p>
