As upgrades from their predecessors, the imageCLASS MF6160dw adds PCL language support to enable printing from a wide variety of applications, while the MF6180dw adds wireless connectivity. Both models add Google Cloud Print, which enables users who have a Google Account to print from Gmail™ and Google Doc™ from a mobile device and from the Google Chrome™ browser for Mac®, Windows®, Linux® and Chrome™ devices.
Additional features include all mode two-sided printing which can help reduce paper usage and Simple Solution Keys which allow users to easily access the scan and eco-copy (2 on 1, 4 on 1 copy modes) functions.

Both machines are equipped with Secure Print and Department ID Management, helping to assure that sensitive documents will end up in the right hands and giving companies the ability to control device usage. Finally, a high capacity cartridge is available as a replacement consumable so users can also enjoy a lower cost per page as compared to the standard cartridge.

In this power panel at @...

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
