The new AR-5618 is a fast, fully featured A3 MFP in a robust and compact design. This machine brings advanced functionality, impressive performance and a whole host of productivity features within reach of every small workgroup as they are ideal for all of your daily B/W printing, colour scanning and copying needs.
