Product
Of the previous models, the Aficio 3260C
enjoyed greatest success, selling in big
numbers into the general office environment
as a black-to-colour replacement for high
speed mono devices. The Aficio 5560C,
targeted at professional print environments,
enjoyed slightly less success because it
lacked some of the advanced specifications
demanded by the production market like

Comparison with Predecessor Higher productivity
Enhanced Image Quality
Easier operation
Better paper handling specifications
Professional finishing options
Fax functionality and the latest scan, print and security features
The Aficio MP C6000 replaces the Aficio
3260C and the Aficio MP C7500 replaces the
Aficio 5560C. Although based on a similar
platform, the new products are significantly
better than their predecessors.
Improvements
Increased productivity due to faster
engine speeds, a reduction in
calibration time and quicker warm up
process.
Improved image quality resulting from
to a newly designed development
system, fusing unit and new ultra-fine
PxP™ toner.
Operation is even easier than on the
predecessor models thanks to the
widescreen colour operation panel and
improved workflows.
Higher Productivity
The engine speed has been increased to
60/55 ppm (B&W/Col) and 75/70 ppm (B&W/
Col) for the MP C6000 and MP C7500, making
the MP C7500 the fastest machine in its class.
A new fusing unit using a specially designed
thin fusing roller works in with the new PxP™
low fusing temperature toner to dramatically
reduce warm up time. The Aficio MP C6000
and MP C7500 are ready to print less than 75
seconds after power up which is faster than
any competitor in their class. The lower fusing
temperature also helps reduce overall power
consumption.
The Cycle Down Time (process control and
self check time) of the new machines (2) and
(3) has been drastically reduced from that of
the predecessor models (1) helping to
increase the overall productivity of these
machines to the highest in their class.
The new models boast Improved paper
handling specifications with the ability to
feed 216 g/m² paper from standard
trays and A3+ paper via the new A3
LCT.
Professional finishing options like the
Plockmatic booklet maker, GBC
StreamPunch and Z-folding are
supported on the new models.
The new machines can be configured
with a fax option and have upgraded
scan, print, fax and security features like
other recently launched Aficio MFPs.
Comparison with Predecessor
10
Enhanced Image Quality
Newly designed developer and fusing units
together with the use of new PxP™ toner have
further improved image quality.
The new developer unit improves the flow of
toner and developer throughout the unit,
resulting in more even solids and reducing
banding. It also reduces halo effects (1).
There is a one button switch (4) to a simplified
display mode. In this mode text is enlarged
and made easier to read and more complex
operations are hidden from view.
New status LEDs (5) positioned on the front
edge of the control panel are easily visible
from a distance showing users the machine
status without them having walk up to the
machine.
Softer surface on the fusing roller further
improve fusing and allow a greater latitude of
paper weights and since the pick-off pawls
don't touch the roller pawl stripes are
eliminated.
The Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 also
feature animated guidance for user
maintenance task like product clearing
misfeeds and replenishing toner and staples.
Not only does PxP™ toner fuse at lower
temperatures, the toner particles (2) are
smaller and more uniform in shape improving
the evenness, density and sharpness of
images.
Easier Operation
To make operation easier, the new machines
come with a colour 8.5 inch widescreen
operation panel (1).
The LCD panel, logo and tray handles all have
central positions on the device (2) making
them easier to locate.
The Login/Logout button (3) allows the user to
login and logout quickly helping to prevent
unauthorised use,
Comparison with Predecessor
11
Better Paper Handling Specifications
The paper weight from standard trays has
been increased to 216 g/m² and the paper
weight from the bypass feed and new A3 LCT
to 300 g/m².
The Z-folder unit is an interesting option for
architects, construction companies, industrial
plants or any other organization that frequently
handles large schedules, tables or illustrations
that are difficult to present on anything smaller
than A3 (3).
The standard 2 x 1100 A4 tandem tray (top
tray) can be converted into an 1100 sheet A3
tray, increasing the A3 paper capacity. With
the new A3 LCT fitted, the machine will hold
up to 4200 sheets of A3 on-line
Fax, Scan, Print and Security Features
A new A3 Large Capacity Tray supports paper
sizes up to A3+* and paper weights up to 300
g/m². It is equipped with the air assist
mechanism for better paper separation of
coated paper.
The A3 LCT uses the Bypass Tray entrance,
so with this option fitted there is no bypass
feed. The A3 LCT is perfect for applications
where there is a requirement to feed large
paper sizes and / or heavy paper weights on a
regular basis.
* A3+ = 12" x 18" = 305 x 457 mm
Professional Finishing Options
The GBC StreamPunch III unit enables the
user to punch documents at full engine speed
in seven standard binding formats. The
operator can quickly and easily change the die
set to change the punching style.
The Plockmatic BK5010 booklet maker with
optional trimmer and square folding function
(2a), enables the user to produce
professionally finished A4 and A5 booklets (2)
of maximum 120 pages (30 sheets). The
interposer also supports cover insertion (up to
300g/m²).
Comparison with Predecessor
A fax option, like that available with other
Aficio MFPs, is available with the Aficio MP
C6000 and MP C7500. The fax option
provides high speed G3 fax functionality and
means that in an office environment, the new
machines can act as document centres
handling communication as well as print. With
SP versions of the product, the fax option also
provides LAN Fax, Fax Forward to e-mail, Fax
Forward to Folder, Paperless Fax, IP Fax and
Internet Fax functions.
New scanning features (available with SP
versions of the product) include Scan to URL,
Scan to NCP, High Compression PDF, and
Preview before Scan. These features are
explained in more detail in the relevant
sections of this guide.
New print features (available with SP versions
of the product) include Imposition Settings,
Double Print, Speed Print, Creep, Crop Mark
printing, Mobile Driver and Mail to Print. These
features are explained in more detail in the
relevant sections of this guide.
New security features which are also
explained later in the guide include a simplified
Windows/LDAP/Basic authentication process,
Kerberos authentication, encrypted pdf
transmission and unauthorised copy
protection.

Configuration Overview Hardware Configuration
Aficio MP C6000 and MC7500 basic models and SP models come as standard with the following
hardware:
1 = Paper tray 1 (1100 sheets x2)
2 = Paper tray 2 (550 sheets)
3 = Paper tray 3 (550 sheets)
4 = Bypass tray (100 sheets)
5 = ARDF (100 sheets)
6 = Duplex unit (trayless)
Function Configuration
The Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 ship in one of two configurations. Basic models, Aficio MP
C6000 and MP C7500 ship as copiers. SP models, Aficio MP C6000SP and MP C7500SP ship as
print and scan ready document centres.
Basic models can be upgraded to provide print and scan functionality by adding a Fiery controller.
There are two Fiery controller options. Both launch in Spring / Summer 2008. The E-7100 is an
embedded controller. The E-8100 is a an external controller. There is no GW controller option for
basic models and they cannot be upgraded by adding GW print and scan functionality. Fax is an
option for basic models however the absence of a GW controller means that fax functionality is
limited to G3 fax. Basic models can not be upgraded to provide LAN fax or IP fax functionality.
SP models can be upgraded by adding PostScript and Fax functionality. Because the SP models
have GW controllers, adding fax functionality provides G3 fax, LAN fax and IP fax functionality. There
is no Fiery option for SP models and they can not be upgraded with Fiery controllers and utilities.

External Options
There is a wide range of standard external options available for the Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500
series. In addition to the standard finishing options, basic models can be configured with a heavy
duty Plockmatic Booklet Maker and / or a GBC Stream Punch. These two items are not options for
SP models.
The standard options allow SP models to be configured to meet all walk up applications in the
general office from basic copying and printing through to booklet making with externally produced
covers. The specialist options available for basic models mean that they can be configured for
dedicated use in production environments where non-stop production of neatly finished booklets is
likely to be a requirement.

Marketing Objectives Maintain competitive advantage
Sell more machines into the general office market
Replace slower, less productive competitor colour boxes
Accelerate B-to-C conversion
Penetrate production market
Increase colour document volume and grow after sales profit
Maintain Competitive Advantage
The previous models were far superior to
competitor models and took a greater than
50% share of the high speed general office
colour market. As competitors introduce new
models, the competitive advantage enjoyed by
the original models will be eroded. The new
Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 boast
significantly improved specifications, new
features and functionality and a wider range of
handling options. The improvements mean
that we maintain the strong competitive
advantage that we hold over the competition,
making our products easier to sell.
Accelerate Colour Growth
Colour print is now a standard feature of the
general office market. As colour has become
more widely used, users have demanded
easier access to colour (more colour
machines) and greater colour productivity
(faster colour machines). By bringing faster
more productive colour engines to market, we
will fuel that demand and increase the rate of
black to colour conversion in high speed / high
volume general office applications.
Increase Sales Revenue
By promoting best-in-class black-to-colour
solutions into a fast growing market, we will
dramatically increase box sales and grow our
hardware revenues. Improvements to speed,
productivity and quality make the new
machines more desirable than competitor
machines. Improvements to functionality make
the new machines an even more viable
Marketing Objectives
alternative to high volume black and white
machines than their predecessors. The new
machines can be used to replace slower, less
productive colour machines supplied by the
competition as well as to replace high volume
black and white machines using a black to
colour strategy.
Increase Colour Document Volume
Market acceptance of colour, combined with
the dramatic improvements we have made to
colour speed and colour quality will inevitably
lead to an increase in colour print ratios. With
little difference in productivity between colour
and black and white output and the ready
availability of automated online finishing, users
will be more inclined to print in colour. Colour
document ratios will increase leading to a
dramatic increase in revenue from service
click and consumables.
Stretch into Production
The improvements in speed and quality are
even more significant to the production
market. These improvements, combined with
wider paper handling specifications, new Fiery
controllers and a choice of professional
finishing options, make the Aficio MP C6000
and MP C7500 ideal for light production. In
Print Room, CRD and Pay-for-Print
environments, they present a compact and
affordable alternative to competitor ‘heavy
iron’ machines. Penetrating the production
environment presents the opportunity to
capture enormous regular colour print volumes
from the competition.

Industry observers like Gartner, Dataquest
and Infosource predict huge growth in the sale
of colour capable MFPs, particularly higher
speed, higher productivity devices. The
European market is way ahead of the US and
Asia Pacific in its acceptance of colour.
Infosource forecast that in Europe, by 2009,
50% of all high speed MFP sold will have
colour capability!

Whilst
manufacturers have introduced low to mid

speed and productivity necessary to replace
high speed black and white machines.
The Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 with their
exceptionally fast colour output speeds and
versatile handling are the first MFPs with the
capability to replace high speed high volume
black and white in the general office and light
production environments. There is little viable
colour competition in this sector. By taking a
lead now you can take easy advantage of the
high page volumes, both black and white AND
colour, that these machines will generate.

Class Leading Performance
The Aficio MP C7500 produces colour output
at a breathtaking 70 pages a minute and black
and white at 75 pages a minute. That equates
to 4,200 colour pages an hour or more than
30,000 colour pages in a typical 8 hour
working day. Not bad for a machine that is no
larger than the average office copier.
The Aficio MP C6000 is fast too. It will produce
55 colour pages a minute and 60 black and
white. That sort of productivity means that the
choice between colour and black and white is
academic. There’s no waiting for colour with
an Aficio MP C6000 or MP C7500, full
productivity is maintained whether printing in
colour or black and white.
Continuous production speeds are:
MP C7500 -> 75/70ppm (mon/col)
MP C6000 -> 60/55ppm (mon/col)
ready to print less than 75 seconds after
power up which is faster than any competitor
in their class. The lower fusing temperature
also helps reduce overall power consumption.
Fast One-Off Copies and Prints
Fast continuous copy and print speeds are
one thing but with constant interruptions for
one-off copies and prints in the general office,
productivity can drop. But not with the Aficio
MP C6000 and MP C7500. An interrupt
feature allows one-off copies and prints to be
made without affecting job settings and with a
one-off colour page delivered in just 6.4
seconds (Aficio MP C7500) there is little or no
impact on overall productivity.
One-off copy and print speeds are:
MP C7500 -> 4.9/6.4sec (mon/col)
MP C6000 -> 5.7/7.5sec (mon/col)
75 Second Warm Up
The extreme speeds are made possible by
advances in image processing technology. A
new fusing system employs a specially
designed thin fusing roller which works with
the newly formulated low fusing temperature
toner to dramatically reduce warm up time.

Maintaining Productivity
High Capacity ARDF
The Cycle Down Time (process control and
self check time) of the new machines has
been dramatically reduced from that of the
predecessor models to maintain overall
productivity and up-time. This combined with
the fast continuous output speed and quick
warm up means that productivity of these
machines is the best in their class.
The integral ARDF feeds originals for
scanning and copying. It holds up to 100
sheets and can turn double sided originals
over automatically to scan both sides. The
scanner at close to full engine speed,
scanning black and white originals at 75
images a minute and colour originals at 60
images a minute. In copy mode, scan once
copy many technology means that originals
are scanned just once and returned to the
operator whilst copies are produced from
memory.
Full Speed Duplex
The Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 are
ready configured with a high-speed trayless
duplex. This unit automatically cycles paper
for double sided copy and print. The duplex
runs at full engine speed for incredibly fast
production of high quality double sided colour
and mono output. The combination of full
speed duplex and optional full speed booklet
maker means that professional full colour
booklets, brochures and magazines can be
produced in-house without any delay.
Matched Speed Peripherals
Continuous Feed Capability
A large standard paper capacity of 3400
sheets can be expanded to a cavernous 7400
sheets with the addition of the optional 4000
sheet A4 LCT. Even without the LCT, the
ability to load paper into one tray whilst
feeding from another, means that these
machines can operate virtually non-stop.
Standard and maximum paper capacities are::
A4 -> 3400 / 7400 (std / max)
A3 -> 1200* / 4400 (std / max)
* plus 2200 sheets of A4
Key Selling Points
It is obvious really. A fast machine needs
equally fast peripherals if it is to maintain
productivity. But it is something that the
competition often overlooks. All peripheral
items for the Aficio MP C6000 and MP
C75000 from feed stations to finishers run at
full engine speed. In the finishing systems prestack mechanisms and fast moving staple
guns ensure that 100% productivity is
achieved no matter how complex the finishing
requirement.

PxP™ Toner
New Developer Unit
Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 use a new
specially formulated oil-less pulverised toner.
With the new toner these machines produce
even better image quality than their
predecessors.
A new developer unit improves the flow of
toner and developer throughout the unit. A
more even mix of ultra-fine particle toner with
developer results in more even solids and
reducing banding. It also reduces halo effects.
The new developer unit also operates at a
lower temperature than that in the previous
machine and can help reduce overheating in
warm environments.
The toner, which has ultra-fine uniformly
shaped particles, reduces graininess,
improves image density and evenness, and
helps achieve fine colour matching. The toner
also has a lower fusing temperature, a factors
driving the increased speed and productivity.
New Fusing Unit
Because the new toner fuses at lower
temperature, it has been possible to develop a
lower temperature fusing unit. Specially
designed thin fusing rollers reach working
temperature more quickly and are better able
to maintain temperatures better, resulting in a
faster warm up and improved output speeds.
In addition, a softer surface on the fusing roller
allows a greater latitude of paper weights to be
fused and since pick-off pawls don't touch the
roller pawl stripes are eliminated.
Copier Image Separation
Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 employ ASIC
technology (application specific integrated
circuits) for data processing. This technology
helps achieve better gradation of images
(smoother tones) and allows clear separation
of text and image in copying so that photo and
text / photo images are of an even higher
quality than before.

Stacker provides capacity to hold a large
capacity of sets for long periods of
uninterrupted operation.
The optional Trimmer Unit produces booklets
with a flush edge for a professional look. The
optional Book Fold Unit produces perfect
bound books without glue or heat; creating a
spine that is printable and easy to identify and
stack, and which permits the booklet to lay flat
when opened. The Cover Feeder Unit
substitutes for the Cover Interposer to add
wrap-around covers to perfect bound sets with
minimal effort. A simplified user interface on
the BK5010 Booklet Maker clearly displays all
settings for changes or confirmation.

Colour Print Solutions
RPCS and PCL Drivers
SP versions of the MPC6000 and MP C7500
boast advanced GW print, scan and share
functionality. The Aficio MP C7500 will print in
full colour at 70 pages a minutes and the
Aficio MP C6000 at 55 pages a minute.
The RPCS driver (Refined Print Command
Stream) allows the user to save regular print
setting for easy selection, Booklet printing
which incorporates duplex printing, booklet
pagination, centre stapling and folding can for
example be saved under an icon for simple
one-click selection.
Basic versions of the product can be
configured to print by adding one of two Fiery
controllers. Please note, there is GW option
for basic models.
Network Ready
SP version of the product are network ready.
The integral printer card connects directly to
Ethernet networks enabling the product to be
shared as a network printer / scanner by
multiple users; increasing throughput and
ensuring a fast return on investment.
PCL drivers are industry standard print drivers
that provide similar print functionality and
operation irrespective of manufacturer or
model. The commonality of PCL drivers
means that many IT departments favour
printers with PCL functionality.
High-Speed Network Options
Other network options include a Wireless LAN
interface with WPA (security) support for
connection to a wireless network; Bluetooth
interface, Parallel interface and PictBridge
Camera interface. The Wireless LAN option
supports the latest high-speed ‘g’ standards.
There is also a Gigabit Ethernet interface
option that provided high-speed wired network
connectivity.
Key Selling Points
PS3 Option
Genuine Adobe PostScript 3 is an option for
SP versions of the Aficio MP C6000 and MP
C7500. PostScript is necessary for printing in
35
Mac environments and is advantageous where
advanced Desktop Publishing Applications like
Quark and Adobe InDesign are used.
Mail to Print (requires PS3 option)
Mail to Print is a new feature that enables
users to send an email with attached data
directly to the MFP for printing. Perfect for
offices where staff don’t all have access to PC,
this feature allows documents to be printed
without the need to open them.
This feature might prove beneficial in a
centralised administration centre where
documents generated in regional offices can
be printed directly to the centralised
administration department’s MFP for action.
Black-Over-Print
The Black-Over-Print feature renders black
toner over a full background image for litho
quality overlays. It helps avoid unsightly print
effects like haloing (where a white background
is visible behind black text laid over an image).
CLP Colour Simulation
The Colour Simulation feature allows the
Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 to emulate
HP laser printer profiles for consistent colour
output across multiple production devices.
This feature may prove useful when selling
into an environment where there are already
HP Colour Laser Jet printers as it will show
that the Aficio can produce output of similar
appearance to the HP.
Mobile Driver (requires PS3 option)
Bonjour
A ‘mobile driver’ is a common driver that can
be used for all Aficio MFPs and printers
configured with the PS3 print option. The
advantage of the driver is that a single easyto-use print interface can be used across a
number of different machines. Field based
staff calling into branch offices with different
Aficio devices do not need machine specific
print drivers . Using the mobile driver they can
print easily to any PS3 configured Aficio
device.
PDF Direct Print (requires PS3 option)
A feature of the PostScript option, PDF Direct
Print enables PDF documents to be printed
without being opened at the PC, reducing
network traffic and the time taken for data
transfer. Although PDF files are relatively
small, when changed to print data they
become larger and can place unnecessary
load on the network. A 325KB PDF file can, for
example, become a 2.18MB print file when
printed through a windows driver. PDF Print
Direct solves this problem by allowing the
printer controller to receive the PDF file
directly from the PC and generate printable
data in the controller. The network traffic (load
transmission) will be reduced and productivity
increased.
Key Selling Points
Bonjour is Apple Computer's version of
ZeroConf (Zero Configuration Networking), a
set of protocols that enables a device on an IP
network to automatically recognize and
connect with other devices on the network. To
the end user, this means that when a new
device connects to the network, every
computer on the network is able to use it
instantly without any setup or special
configuration. Bonjour uses IETF standards for
both Link Local Addressing (LLA) and
Multicast DNS (mDNS). mDNS allows the new
device to advertise its existence and the
services it offers. LLA looks around,
negotiates with other devices on the subnet,
and picks a suitable IP address for the device.
Bonjour provides users with the following three
solutions:
Addressing (allocating IP addresses to
hosts)
Naming (using names to refer to hosts
instead of IP addresses)
Service discovery (finding and using
services on the network)
36
Host Print Solution
The Aficio MP C6000 and MP C7500 can be
configured to print in non-windows
environments like those used by many
companies to print reports, invoices and
forms. Host operating systems like UNIX and
Linux, SAP/R3IBM, AS/400 and Novel NDPS
generate data streams that are not be
recognised by conventional printers. With use
of simple downloadable filters, the Aficio MFP
can be configured to read ASCII data streams
and print out host data that would otherwise
be printed on line-printers.
Customer benefits of using the Aficio solution
for host print applications are:
Simple plug in solution
High speed print onto to cut sheet paper
Advanced finishing option
Quick return on investment

queues, precise colour management, and
through optional utilities, the means to impose
print into multiple formats. Many customers in
the production environment will already be
using Fiery controllers with other production
devices.
The Fiery print controllers are best suited to
production environments for applications.
Fiery drivers are a little more complex to use
but do provide greater control over colour
settings and print queues. The Fiery
controllers have a standard PostScript driver;
a priced option for the GW controller.
PostScript is essential in Mac environments
and advantageous where advanced Desktop
Publishing Applications like Quark and Adobe
InDesign are used.
Colour Matching
Fiery Colour Options
Basic versions of the Aficio MP C6000 and MP
C7500 can be configured with one of two EFI
Fiery controllers to provide professional print
and scan functionality. The Fiery E-7100 is an
embedded RIP, whilst the Fiery E-8100 is a an
external RIP. Neither controller is available
immediately on launch but will become
available in Spring / Summer 2008.
Fiery controllers are the de facto choice in
many professional print environments. Fiery
controllers provide close control over job
Key Selling Points
Most of us use Microsoft Office for our day to
day work. Microsoft Office uses RGB data as
a way of displaying colour on the Screen.
When it comes to print, we use CMYK Toner
to produce a Colour Page. So Colour
conversion and matching is important to
ensure that printed colours closely resemble
those on screen. The Fiery controller has the
ability to covert RGB images to CMYK print
data, whilst at the same time making sure that
if a file has CMYK data this is not affected.
Using the Fiery, experienced users can adjust
colour conversion settings on a job by job
basis to suit their needs.
38
The screen may look complicated but the
settings, once made are normally left alone;
the controller will just get on with the job in
hand.
The Fiery controller works differently, it
ignores the CMKY data for the named colour
and uses its own reference table. When
different applications demand the same
named colour, the Fiery outputs the same
colour, achieving a more consistent output.
Not all Pantone colours can be printed using
just CMKY Toner, so please do not assume
that all colours will be printed accurately, the
Fiery controller will print Pantone colours that
use Process colours (CMYK) within the colour
capabilities of the engine being used. So
another manufacturer’s machine may not be
able to print certain colours that we can.
Auto Trapping (Option)
Pantone Colours (‘Spot On’ Option)
The Fiery controller has the ability to print Spot
colours. They are normally referred to as
Pantone Colours but not all can be printed as
many Pantones colours use more than just
CMYK Inks. Using the Fiery, users can
produce Pantones that are within the Colour
Range of the Copier using CMYK Toner.
What are Pantone Colours? Ready mixed inks
used within the Offset Press environment. The
inks can be purchased straight off the shelf
ready to use, or an offset press operator can
make up the chosen colour using various base
inks. With the later option the colour accuracy
is down to the experience of the mixer! There
can be up to 17 base ink colours used to make
Pantone colours including White ink. The
CMYK process on a colour copier/printer uses
just the 4 Toner colours - Cyan Magenta
Yellow and Black.
Corporate colours are often chosen from the
Pantone library. Some companies deliberately
choose colours that are not able to be printed
or recreated using just CMYK which stops
people trying to copy or counterfeit goods.
Most applications that support named colours
send the print job to the printing device with
the named Colour as well as the application’s
own interpretation of CMYK data for that
colour. Different software applications interpret
the CMYK data in different ways with the
result that prints from different applications
often present Pantone colours in different
ways.
Key Selling Points
Auto Trapping is an option for the Fiery
version of the product. When this option is
fitted the Fiery controller looks at the print data
and looks for areas that might produce a white
Halo around an image. Where found, the
controller will adjust the print data to “Fill in”
the area concerned.
This sample illustrates a File that has been
printed without Auto Trapping. You can see a
white halo effect where text has been overlaid
over a coloured background.
The nest sample illustrates a File that has
been printed with Auto trapping switching
turned ON. The white area around the edges
has been eliminated by “Filling in” this area.
39
Once an Output Profile is selected you can
see the colour Libraries that are installed
within the Fiery Controller.
Customer Benefits
Allows for a professional appearance for
page elements with non-like colours next
to each other.
Independent of source application or
driver.
No need for users to have knowledge of
trapping rules
Much faster than conventional trapping
(standalone applications).
If you know the CMYK mix for the colour it can
be programmed here. Or you can use the
Colour Search window to “Mix” the colour on
Screen. Replacement colours can be
programmed in the same way and then
instructed to replace the original colour(s)
Spot On (Option)
Even though the Fiery controller can print
Pantone matched colours, there will be times
when the operator finds it useful to tweak
individual colour settings; perhaps to adjust a
pantone colour used across a number of
documents. Using Spot On, the user can
make the adjustment without having to open
each document in the original application.
With the Spot On option, the user can instruct
the Fiery to look for a particular named colour
or RGB/CMYK value and replace it with
another Named Colour or CMYK value. Using
this method a more consistent output is
achieved regardless of application or the
user’s ability.
When Installed, Spot On is available from the
ColourWise Tools Main Screen.
Key Selling Points
Customer Benefits
Automatic matching of Pantone library
colours with their best CMYK equivalents.
Support of Branding efforts to standardize
the appearance of corporate colours
Increased productivity by streamlining the
submission process of files with specific

Reduce time of rework giving the option to
edit colours without going back to the
original application

Hot Folders (Option)
Efi Impose (Option)
This utility allows for the printing of PDFs
without using a dedicated printer driver, a “Hot
Folder” is created on the PC desktop, users
then simply drag the PDF (or PostScript / Tiff
file) onto the folder and the job will be sent to
the Fiery controller be processed and printed.
The simplest form of Imposition is the creation
of a booklet, the Ricoh RPCS & PCL drivers
have a Function that will allow the pages to be
re paginated so that when the document is
stapled and folded the pages are in the correct
order.
Different settings can be applied to different
folders, for example –
Basic Imposition is included within the Fiery
driver, for easy Booklet creation, there is also
another way of Imposing documents, and this
is on the controller and is therefore
independent of driver and operating system
sending the print job.
One folder named (Duplex) is set up to
simply Duplex all pages of a PDF when it’s
sent to this folder
A second folder could be set up for Double
siding and to be stapled in the top left
hand corner.
A third Folder could be set up to produce a
Booklet that’s A4 in size, its folded and
saddle stapled.
There are a number of standard Templates
that are pre defined or users can control the
settings themselves.
This makes it easier for the general user to
print files, this feature is also useful in a print
room type environment, and a Folder may be
named after a Customer who always wants
the same job settings applied to all of their
jobs when they are printed.
Customer Benefits
Hot Folder Icons are placed on the Desktop,
PDF files are then dragged onto these Icons
and the Jobs sent to the Controller. These
Icons could be different Job Settings or named
for a particular customer. Hot Folder settings
are easily changed.
Optimizes utilization of paper stock for
small document size, such as business
cards
Increased flexibility
Can be useful for page double-up to save
on engine click-charges.
Customer Benefits
Automated workflow for all users which
translates into higher productivity
Cuts down on repetitive workflows for
faster, error-free printing
Can increase complexity of jobs beyond
users own expertise

Standard Security Features
As office products evolve, security threats like
theft, leaking or falsification of electric data
have become a major concern. Customers are
looking for greater security and protection of
data from MFP devices. The Aficio MP C6000

Copy Mask Protection
Data Over Write Security
(requires Copy Data Security opt)
(requires DOS option)
This feature prevents unauthorised copying of
confidential documents by overlaying the
original print with an embedded masking
pattern. If copied the masking pattern comes
to the fore making other information on the
document illegible.
This feature overwrites temporary data held on
the hard disk drive with random data. The
random data is overwritten twice to ensure
that the original data can not be recovered.
This method of data overwrite is the USA
Department of Defence
standard
and
is
commonly used in
PC security.
Scanner and fax functions are disabled if this
feature is installed.
