Speed and performance is a requirement for the convenience, retail market and fast food market environment. The RZ-E701 boast a fast and efficient processor. Small and mid size companies must be highly flexible to survive in their daily business against large companies. The flexible PC-based POS terminal RZ-E701 offers a lot of opportunities, as it allows installation of specific application software dedicated to the market segments.
Apart from this, the RZ-E701 can be upgraded to an overall sophisticated system. This is due to the availibility of several interfaces to connect different printers, a 10.4″ colour LCD customer display, magnet card reader etc.
Not only visually, but also from the daily work and efficiency point of view the RZ-E701 is perfectly designed. The terminal can be placed directly on the checkout desk. Thanks to its fanless technology the RZ-E701 reduces energy cost to a significant low level.

More powerful colour delivers a more professional finish, which gives your business the best chance of growing and attracting new customers. While previously this meant out-sourcing printed material, it can now be done in-house and for a fraction of the cost. With OKI’s LED colour printers you can print invoices, customer letters, contracts, business cards, flyers and posters all to a professional standard and to the exact quantity you require.
And as an added bonus, from 1st October until 31st March 2018, selected LED colour printers from OKI come with free mono printing for a year*, and even beyond the first year, printing mono on a colour printer from OKI costs no more than with a standard mono printer.
We’re delighted to announce that the d-Color MF304 and d-Color MF364 have received High Reliability awards from the BLI. Buyers Lab (BLI) is the global document imaging industry’s resource for unbiased and reliable information, test data and competitive selling tools and, therefore,one of the hardest industry analysts to please.
The machines were tested continuously over a 2 month period and the BLI Report claimed that these two models were “outstanding overall performers exhibiting flawless reliability, while also offering customizability and flexibility in order to easily meet the needs of diverse work styles. The devices experienced no misfeeds and required no service over the course of its 100,000-impression durability test.”
The report also highlighted the ease with which users can switch between the three different panel interfaces and how the machines provide excellent productivity through fast scan speed and the use of the mobile print features.
The high levels of security measures within the models were praised, such as the standard hard drive overwrite function, and the excellent print quality was highlighted. The BLI Report mentioned the quality of “solid blacks and a very good range of half-tones”.
The Olivetti d-Color MF2553 and d-Color MF3253 are the latest A3 colour multifunctional printer-copier-scanners to join Olivetti’s mid volume range.
Printing at at 25ppm and 32ppm, respectively, these two models have been designed to enhance the management and productivity of all business environments where data security, connecting to cloud-based workflows and performance are key requirements.
These models are delivered with intuitive, easy to use functions for processing and sharing documents through their intuitive 9” colour Touch-screen, Near Field Communication and Direct Wifi. What is more, they produce colour prints of exceptional quality with a standard resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, and a Fiery controller is available for the d-Color MF3253, if even more advanced colour management is needed.
With the world focusing increasingly on data security the d-Color MF2553 and d-Color MF3253 provide highly effective and sophisticated security features. They are both compliant with the latest security certification, ISO/IEC 15408, and, in their standard configuration, files hosted on the SSD and optional hard disk devices can be encrypted, using the AES 256 algorithm, which even encrypts temporary files. The whole HDD can be sanitised, enabling multiple overwrites, removing the content from the HDD, SSD and Fax memories at the end of their life-cycles.
These two models are the epitome of advancements in document management technology and mark the way forward for future generations of Olivetti’s MFP range. To download the PDF of the d-Color MF2553 / d-Color MF3253 Product Brochure: DOWNLOAD HERE

Q: Is it always a paper quality issue that causes paper curl?
Technical: Mostly it is a quality issue but poor storage of paper, before it’s used, can create a few problems too. Paper should be stored in a dry location, away from the cold and damp. If paper is stored in older buildings then, sometimes cool air and rising damp can become a problem over time. It’s worth checking paper storage a few times a year, especially in winter.
Q: What paper type appears to cause the main issues?
Technical: We have had some known issues with some cheaply produced papers. We have also found a few problems with some coated papers when they are used for high volume tasks and over a long period of time.
Q: Is there a pattern to the type causing the issues?
Technical: Generally, we have found paper curl tends to happen more on A3 paper and is caused by the paper not being discharged properly.
Q: Have you had many people ask for advice about paper types?
Technical: We have been asked. In general, though, Olivetti systems are compatible with a wide variety of paper/media types and grades. However, we do not recommend a specific make of paper as there are complex quality issues to be taken into account, due to the different types of materials available. Ignoring these factors could lead to unforeseen problems such as mis-feeds, paper jams, poor quality print and copy appearance and even damage to the inner workings of a machine.
Q: Is this issue covered in the technical training courses?
Technical: Yes we talk about it in the courses we run and, in the case of the colour MFP range, we are able to point the Dealers in the direction of the Sales Guides, which do have a section on this subject.
Q: What other issues do the “wrong type of paper” cause?
Technical: The paper curls and blocks the exit unit and causes jams. There can sometimes be issues with toner not fusing correctly on coated papers so you might end up with unsightly banding or colours not being very strong.
Q: What would be your advice to Dealers to prevent this sort of thing happening in future?
Technical: We are advising dealers to check the sort of paper that is being fed through the machine, making sure that the correct paper type is selected, that the paper is positioned correctly and to run good quality A3 100gsm paper, where issues occur in A3. So far these checks have appeared to eradicate the faults.
