Customize document workflows to work faster and smarter

With the Lanier® MP C3004 Color Multifunction Printer (MFP) and its intuitive Workstyle Innovation Technology, you can create unique and integrated workflows for efficient printing, scanning, copying and faxing. Streamline your business processes, access cloud information and help mobile workers stay connected from anywhere.

Do everything on your to-do list with this all-in-one printer solution

With its built-in motion sensor, the Lanier MP C3004 is ready to work when you are. Print compelling brochures, presentations and more with breathtaking colors at up to 30 pages per minute (ppm). Scan two-sided documents at up to 180 images per minute (ipm) and share them instantly via a wide range of Scan-to destinations. Send contracts via fax without paper in a single step. Store up to 3,000 frequently used documents right at the device for immediate retrieval and add optional paper trays to expand capacity to 4,700 sheets for extended runs.

Vivid color printing that meets your budget

Leave a longer-lasting impression. Print on paper sizes up to 12" x 18" with vivid colors and sharper text on even the thickest paper stocks (up to 300 gsm). You can even create posters by combining multiple pages into one image — without a wide-format device. Use the new optional Fiery® E-23C Color Controller for exceptional spot-color reproductions — job after job — and professional-grade results without the price tag.

Add your personal touch

The MP C3004 multifunction device and its Workstyle Innovation Technology designed to simplify even your most complex tasks. Like your smartphone or tablet, just tap, drag, swipe and scroll with ease on the 10.1" Wide Super VGA Smart Operation Panel to create your unique workflow applications. An embedded web browser also makes it easy to access the internet and take advantage of powerful scanning and cloud services, including Ricoh DocumentMall and Syncplicity Enterprise File Sync & Share.

Be smart

Use the apps on the new user interface and reduce manual touchpoints and delays. With a single glance, you have all of the information you need to make faster, more informed decisions at the control panel. Change settings, workflows and documents just as easily. Download additional apps from our Application Site, and display them as one-touch functions or widgets on the Home Screen for even more workflow shortcuts.

Finish strong

Looking to conserve resources and eliminate the hassle of removing staples when shredding or recycling documents? With the optional Hybrid Stapleless + Stapler Finisher, you can finish documents with or without staples automatically, depending on the size of the job. Choose from a wide range of other finishers, including an internal stapleless finisher, to fit your unique paper handling, stack, stapling and booklet-making requirements.

Keep moving with mobile printing options

Work only stops when you do. Print from your smartphone or tablet without utilities, drivers or software. Download the Lanier Smart Device Connector app and use your mobile device to grab information from cloud storage, access your own personal address book and share information with the right people at the right time.

Be accountable with printer management controls

With user authentication, you can track every user and action. Have users log in via passcodes or by swiping proximity cards via an optional Near Field Communication (NFC) card reader. Set centralized print quotas. Restrict access to color printing. Make duplex printing the default. And more.

An energy-efficient printer that saves energy and resources

Reduce your Typical Electricity Consumption to 1.2 kWh/week and save money. Thanks to an innovative built-in motion detection sensor, you can promptly start key-input operation upon touching the panel screen to wake the MFP from sleep mode. Take advantage of automatic duplexing to cut paper usage and save even more. Reduce your environmental impact through ENERGY STAR™ certification and an EPEAT® Gold rating.
