  • Fast affordable color starts here

    Realize your team's full potential with the power of color. The Lanier MP C401 Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP) simplifies everyday tasks by combining fast color output, advanced scanning and optional faxing to help you share and deliver information. Output brilliant color prints at 42 pages per minute (ppm) on a wide range of media types to keep your projects moving at full speed, and do it in colorful fashion.

    Accomplish more in less time

    Need to capture and share documents quickly? Quickly turn hard copies into digital files and expedite multi-page scans of one- and two-sided originals via the 50-Sheet Automatic Reversing Document Feeder (ARDF). Speed through print jobs while reducing overall paper use with automatic duplexing. Draw from the 650-sheet standard paper capacity, including a 100-sheet bypass tray that can accommodate envelopes and heavier paper stocks.

    Increase supply without increasing footprint

    Have a big job? Expand your paper capacity to 2,300 sheets by adding up to three optional 550-sheet-paper trays, for fewer workflow interruptions - without adding to the device footprint. You'll reduce trips to replenish paper, and can set each paper source to supply different paper types and sizes to accommodate all of your commonly used stocks.

    Stay organized on the fly

    Use the 500-sheet exit tray to keep your output well-organized and easily accessible. Want to keep specific output like faxes or special print tasks separate? Add the one-bin tray as a separate destination for those jobs, making it simple to retrieve the right documents when you need them.

    Stay engaged, even away from the office

    Accomplish more from afar with the MP C401's embedded web browser option. With it, save to and share information with the Ricoh Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE), directly from the control panel. Also, take advantage of incredible mobile convenience with the Ricoh SmartDevice Print & Scan app, which lets you print from, or scan to, your smartphone or mobile device - without special drivers.

    Do more, use less

    Tackle your document tasks without compromising your eco-friendly commitment. Program the MP C401 to automatically shut down, or power up, to conserve energy. Reduce paper use with standard duplexing, as well as reminders from the embedded Eco-Friendly Indicator Screen. You can also set quotas for individuals or groups to reduce unnecessary printing. Plus, the MP C401 has an EPEAT®* Gold rating, is ENERGY STAR® certified , and features a low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value. And whenever you need it, our consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.
