Catalyst 6000 Robust quality and performance for small to medium-volume offices, with choice of printer
Rimage Catalyst® series is ideal for customers with medium-volume requirements. Catalyst is the perfect hybrid of the rugged durability of Producer, with the features of a Professional system. Engineered with filtered positive airflow, the Rimage Catalyst series is ideal for reliable operations even in challenging environmental conditions.
Filtered Positive Airflow
The Rimage Catalyst series introduces filtered positive airflow into the Rimage product line, offering reliability in environments where dust or debris in the air would normally cripple sensitive robotic systems. Air for cooling is pulled into the system through a commonly available filter, driven by the system’s fan. This increases air pressure inside the system, preventing nearly all dust and dirt that would find its way inside. Air leaving the system is actively pushed out due to this air pressure, effectively restricting debris from coming in through system vents.
