MX-4501N/3500N’s RIP Once/Print Many function only needs to
download print data once from the PC for printing, enabling
multi-page documents to be printed directly from the
space-efficient Finisher is also available for
jobs that require only simple sorting and

For high-volume work, the MX4501N/3500N can accommodate an
optional 3,500-sheet large-capacity
tray and stand with 2 x 500-sheet

large-volume jobs to meet tight deadlines.
High-Quality Imaging with Mycrostoner
The MX-4501N/3500N adopts Mycrostoner, a new toner of
smaller particle size that clearly reproduces thin lines, small
characters and halftone colours. The oil-less toner also produces
vivid, natural-looking colour printouts that you can easily write
messages or post sticky notes on.
Proof Printing
To prevent the waste of large-volume misprints, the MX-4501N/
3500N lets users output only the first set to check the content,
adjust settings if necessary, and then initiate output of the rest of
the job from the LCD control panel.
Versatile
USB Memory Direct Print
The MX-4501N/3500N offers a whole new level of
convenience with a USB port for printing data directly
from USB memory devices — an indispensable
function for users who are in a hurry or who want
quick machine access without a PC. Once the device
is connected, the MX-4501N/3500N guides users
through simple operations on the LCD control panel.

depends on the machine’s HDD capacity and other conditions.
Productive Collated Output from Memory
Auto Colour Selection
The MX-4501N/3500N’s Scan Once/Print Many function only
requires a single scan of a multi-page original for copying. The
machine then automatically outputs collated sets of copies in the
proper page order without the aid of a sorter (electronic sorting).
Each set is slightly shifted apart from the previous (offset stacking)
for easy retrieval. Up to 999 copies can be made directly from
memory.
The MX-4501N/3500N automatically distinguishes whether the
pages in a document are colour or B/W. Even if multi-page
originals include a combination of colour and B/W pages, the
MX-4501N/3500N selects the ideal mode for each page and
outputs copies to match the original.

Image Editing Functions
The MX-4501N comes standard with a highly efficient 150-sheet
DSPF (duplex single pass feeder), which scans both pages of
two-sided documents up to A3 (11" x 17") in size in one pass.
Doing away with the reversing circuit
minimises paper misfeeds and vastly
improves reliability. The MX-3500N is
equipped with a 100-sheet RSPF
(reversing single pass feeder).
The MX-4501N/3500N includes colourful editing functions made
possible by digital technology.
• Multi-Page Enlargement divides an image onto separate
sheets for making posters up to A0 x 2 (44" x 68") in size.
• Image Repeat places multiple copies of an image onto a single sheet.

To keep others from seeing confidential documents as they are
being printed out, the MX-4501N/3500N’s Print Hold function
stores print data on its hard disk and withholds output until the
user executes a print command from the control panel. For added
security, the Confidential Print function requires the user to enter
in a PIN (personal identification number) at the machine before

Document Control Function
Document Control prevents unauthorised copying, scanning and
filing of confidential documents. This is how it works: the
MX-4501N/3500N embeds copy prevention data onto a document
when it is first copied or printed. It will then detect this data, for
example, the next time someone tries to make a copy of the
document. Any unauthorised attempts to copy a Document
Controlled-document will simply be cancelled or result in the
output of a blank page.
Note: Requires optional Data Security Kit. May not work for certain types of
documents and paper.
Example: Unauthorised copying
A newly introduced SSL (Secure Socket Layer) enables the
encryption of data communications to prevent data leakage
through the network when printing via IPP or browsing secure
Web pages (HTTPS).
User Authentication
The MX-4501N/3500N prevents unauthorised operation, including
use of the LDAP function, by requiring passwords for machine
access. The MX-4501N/3500N
can also register up to 1,000
