An intuitive 7” color touchscreen provides greater control over the entire print process, displaying image preview, system status and offering access to common functions and settings. Plus, the stored jobs feature holds up to 60 GB of print jobs which can be easily recalled. The enhanced top-loading media feeder has a capacity of up to 575 #10 envelopes, and can feed materials up to 10.5” x 17”. The ColorMax8’s Memjet print head has 70,400 ink nozzles and no moving parts, which offers higher speeds, lower ink and maintenance costs and less noise.


The ColorMax8 produces full-color CMYK output, up to 16.8 million colors, on a variety of paper
stocks and sizes, with full-bleed capability on media up to 8.5” wide. It can print 1600 x 1600 dpi at 6 inches per second, and 1600 x 800 dpi at 12 inches per second. With its thermal inkjet technology, it doesn’t require heat or contact to create an image, so it can safely be used with pre-printed envelopes and windowed envelopes without damaging the window or marring the original image. High-capacity ink tanks and fullyautomated print head cleaning ensure optimum print quality throughout print runs. The ColorMax8 also features front access to the ink tanks for quick and easy tank changes.
