Many, which results in black & white output of 25 cpm.

network can run jobs in unison and never encounter output confusion.
The Aficio Color 3506 offers a host of flexible options and advanced finishing features so your office can perform print-shop-quality work—from

a OHP transparency for your meeting.
For complex color graphics requirements, the E-310* print controller
delivers unsurpassed capability to handle the more difficult tasks.
