Every office needs to maximize efficient use of space and reduce disorder, yet have all the equipment the business needs. Brother International's MFC-8600 multifunction center combines fax machine, copier, printer, and scanner, providing solutions with black and color printing at 12 ppm, plus copying and flatbed scanning, all designed to work together at the touch of a button.
The Brother MFC-8600 is designed with a large-capacity 250-sheet paper tray to support speedy copying, printing projects, and faxes. You can print at 12 ppm on a variety of paper, including envelopes, transparencies, label sheets, letter, and legal paper at resolutions of 600 x 600 dpi. Copies and scans are easy whether you connect to a PC or not. You can produce 12 copies per minute, with automatic reduction from legal to letter size. The flatbed scanner accepts books and magazines and includes OCR software to convert printed text into a digital text file.
The high-speed fax, with enhanced memory management, scans quickly at 2 seconds per page into memory. Additional features include delayed transmission, 270-page fax reception memory (in case the machine runs out of paper), fax forwarding and paging, remote fax retrieval, and an auto-dial capacity of 132 alphabetically stored phone numbers.
Multitasking saves you time, and dual access allows you to scan a fax into the memory while another is being received. The Brother MFC-8600 has a total machine memory of 4 MB standard memory (upgradable to 12 MB or 20 MB). An optional second cassette holds an additional 250 sheets. Included with this machine are an IEEE 1284 parallel cable and a one-year limited warranty.
