3) A good 50ppm+ device from any manufacturer will have in the range of a 3,000 sheet capacity. Our high capacity feeder will provide for an extra 2,000 sheets, making our total a little over 5,000 sheets. The RFP is requesting over 6,000 sheets. Is this a deal breaker?
- No, will factor into the overall cost/scope.
4) Also, considering the volume provided, we wouldn’t recommend paying for a high capacity feeder in the first place unless you are using many different types of media. Are you simply asking if the machine has the “ability” to have additional paper capacity, or are you wanting to purchase / lease the high cap feeder along with the rest of the required items?
- Yes- we are asking for the ‘ability’.
5) Regarding the (3) 25ppm devices, what is the largest size paper that would be used on these machines?
- PD – 8×11 and legal
- Building – 8×11, legal, 11×17
- Fire – 8×11 and legal
6) The average volume numbers provided across all machines were 10,000 b&w and 3,600 color. What percentage of these prints / copies would be used on the larger 50ppm+ device?
- Unfortunately, we do not have an exact percentage. This is the ‘main’ copier for the Village with most output.
