IBM is updating its comprehensive printer family with the introduction of IBM Infoprint® 1512 (machine type 4535).

With a small footprint and a low acquisition price, the IBM Infoprint 1512 monochrome laser printer delivers the functions needed to support small businesses and small workgroups. With a fast print speed of up to 30 pages per minute (ppm) (letter size) and 28 ppm (A4), 32 megabytes of memory, a first-page-out time as fast as eight seconds, and a 366 MHz processor, the Infoprint 1512 helps you work harder and faster on demand.

The printer operator interface has a two-line by 16-character liquid crystal display (LCD), five buttons, and one indicator light. Use the buttons to open a menu, scroll through a list of values, change printer settings, and respond to printer messages. The LCD operator panel presents more than 50 easy-to-understand messages such as "close door," "toner low," or "load multipurpose feeder."

Change most printer settings from your software application, printer driver, or the printer's operator interface. From the easy-to-use operator interface, select menu items and associated values to help print your jobs successfully. Select the print media using the Paper Menu. Use the Finishing Menu to define how the printer delivers output (for example, collated, with borders, with separator sheets, or multi-page images on one page).

Infoprint 1512 offers flexible networking options, including wireless. With wireless capability, you can relocate printers quickly and easily without the cost and delay associated with physical cabling. Boost the productivity of mobile workers by allowing them convenient access to a highly secure wireless LAN.

The most commonly used media can be loaded in the standard automatic 250-sheet paper feeder. The second paper source, the single-sheet multipurpose feeder that is conveniently located at the front of the printer, can be used for special paper, transparency, envelopes, paper labels, card stock, or index stock. You can add the optional 550-sheet drawer to increase paper options, reduce intervention, and improve user productivity. The 250- and 550-sheet drawers can be adjusted to accommodate legal- or folio-size paper.

The easy-to-access output bin on top of the printer holds up to 150 sheets. The single-sheet rear exit provides a straight-through paper path, an especially important feature for specialty media, to help reduce curling and potential jams.

Print multiple page images on one page to save time, paper, and storage space. Use the "Booklet" setting to print multiple pages in booklet form without having to re-format your document. Create posters without a wide-format specialty printer by printing a single image across several pages, which can be combined to create one large image.

Use optional flash memory to print watermarks or overlays, such as company logos or letterheads, decorative borders, and simulated preprinted forms. You can also use flash memory to enable third-party solutions, custom fonts, and bar code fonts.

With features generally found in higher-priced printers, Infoprint 1512 is a perfect choice to replace older printers or expensive inkjet printers while you improve speed and quality and save money.
