We’ve all sat impatiently waiting for a printer to finish a document. It’s annoying. Copy speed is a very important part of the performance and specification of the copier
If you print frequently, especially documents with thousands of pages, print speed will be a critical consideration in your purchase decision.
The speed of a printer is measured in copy per minute (CPM). Pages of text and pages of graphics will have different CPM speeds on a printer. When looking at a package in a store, though, you’ll often only notice one CPM rating. It refers to the number of pages of black text that a printer can output in a minute.
Is Faster Always Better?
Determined according to the characteristics of the industry in which we are located, how do we choose equipment with different copy and print speeds?
11-20 cpm: Recommended for home office or very small office.
21-30 cpm: Most small offices do not exceed 6,000 servings per month. Remember, this “slow” rate is still one page every two to three seconds.
31-44 cpm: Small and medium-sized offices (up to 12,000 copies per month). If you need to connect the copier to the office network, please choose a higher printing ppm. After all, connecting to the network means that many people use it at the same time. If the printing and copying are too slow, it is likely to cause a “big traffic jam.”
45-69 cpm: Medium to large offices. Usually, only law firms, accounting firms, and other industries with high demand for photocopying and printing are necessary.
70-90 cpm: Industries with extreme copying requirements, such as the printing industry, advertising industry, etc.
In summary, the speed of the copier is not as fast as possible, and it should be selected flexibly according to its own business characteristics. This will enable you to achieve a delicate balance between efficiency and failure rate to achieve maximum efficiency.
