dedicated to the Print Outsourcing and MPS-solutions. The reports of the first
day were dedicated to those subjects. They contained most detailed reviews of
the most actual questions of technical, technological and economical solutions
during Print Outsourcing implementation in modern environment.

modern line of Kyocera’s MFPs and printers, showed models’ prominent features, demonstrated
KYOCERA (ECOSYS) fundamental system. He told in detail about HyPAS (Hybrid

Kappius showed the ineffectiveness of using cheap newly-made cartridges in the
outsourcing process. The speaker has in detail reviewed the possible reasons of
low costs of newly-made cartridges (raw-materials, patents infringement, and maximal
economy on everything). He also demonstrated that a cause-effect chain of “low
price” – “low printing quality” – “low outsourcing quality” can serve as a
basis for focusing on quality remanufacturing, not on low quality newly-made
