GEL TECHNOLOGY
Enjoy the advantages that GelSprinter™ technology has over traditional systems. Liquid Gel™ does not
permeate paper and dries very quickly. Your prints will not smudge and are water- and light-resistant for
years to come. Sharp images and lively colours are among the typical characteristics of GelSprinter™
prints.
TOP PRODUCTIVITY
Process print jobs in no time with the GX e5550N’s wide print head and transfer belt system. Your first
colour print is ready in five seconds, a monochrome print in four. The GX e5550N manages print speeds
of up to 30 pages per minute. Maximum paper capacity is 1,350 sheets.
COST-EFFICIENT DOCUMENTS
Lower your paper costs: no special paper needed.
Consume less paper: standard auto duplex printing.
Save on consumables: high-yield cartridges.
ECONOMY COLOR
With the GX e5550N, colour documents cost barely more than monochrome. In ECOnomy Color mode
the printer distinguishes between text and image. Text is printed in solid black; the thickness of images
and graphics is reduced by half. You get the perfect business document: perfectly legible, communicative
with colour, and low-cost.
