The ineo 550i has an innovative LED light indicator on the side of the operator panel and in the paper cassette, with different colors to indicate the different states of the laminator.
The ineo 550i now has a new graphical user interface (GUI). The main menu interface clearly separates the information area and the function area, allowing users to see their login status and the device’s main functions at a glance, making it easy to select and switch between the corresponding functions. The secondary menu interface has been rearranged so that users can scroll through the menus by dragging the screen up and down to select the job settings they need, eliminating the need to enter multiple nested menus and saving b The automatic data storage function after detection ensures that there is no delay in the laminator’s paper movement, reducing the frequency of paper jams caused by human error and greatly increasing the speed and efficiency of operations.
The ineo 550i, which was field-tested, has a plate-handling option that enables a wide range of post-press processes such as grouping, binding, folding, perforating, inserting, and so on. It has a new plate-handling processor to meet various binding needs, such as corner staples, parallel corner staples, two-point edge staples, riding staples, and so on. It is also worth noting that the ineo 550i supports offline binding, so that if you forget to set up the binding during operation, you can simply collate the document to be printed and insert it into the offline binding port to get the finished product bound.
Depending on the user’s requirements, additional cassettes can be purchased to supply up to 3,650 sheets. With the addition of the high-capacity feeder, the device’s maximum capacity is 6,650 sheets. It can also support SRA3 large format, 1200mm long paper, and other printing.
Companies must pay attention to preventing the leakage of sensitive information and securing business office information. Unlike traditional password-based authentication, the ineo 550i offers an optional IC card ID authentication system that eliminates the time-consuming step of entering a password and instead requires only a direct swipe of the IC card on the device to complete authentication.
Furthermore, the laminator includes an optional biometric vein authentication system, which provides increased security and accurate identification. Medical research has shown that each person’s finger vein images are unique, forming a template that is a unique biometric feature that can be used to make identifications with an error rate of only 0.000005 percent, much lower than other identification technologies. Using the absorption of the human vein (finger vein) to a specific wavelength of near infrared light to obtain the image of the vein, through the algorithm into a feature code to carry out the identification of the person, users can easily connect their mobile devices to the ineo 550i via NFC (for Android) or low-power Bluetooth technology (for iOS). Users only need to touch the touch area on the mobile device to quickly perform pairing and use the wireless network to directly print documents and pictures and access scanned data, bringing a new experience of mobile intelligence.
In today’s increasingly popular mobile workplace, the ineo 550i supports a variety of industry standardized mobile connectivity standards, providing an important support for improving employee office efficiency and helping companies wi It supports AirPrint for iOS and Mopria Print for Android, allowing users to connect their mobile devices to the laminator without downloading any applications in a wireless network environment, making it simple and convenient to use. It is also worth noting that the ineo 550i supports USB printing, allowing users to insert files from the USB storage to print on the laminator or scan documents to the USB storage even when there is no network environment.

In terms of cost control, IT staff can automatically filter and generate data reports based on printing volume, users, departments, time, and other conditions, and can set different quotas and pricing strategies for users and departments to avoid daily printing waste and achieve visual control of office costs. Since the composite machine is the same in terms of printing and copying speed, so at 600 dpi resolution, I put the two together through the actual test, and the summary data chart is as follows. In 600dpi resolution, we tested ineo 550i in 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, and 5 minutes under the number of printing and copying paper, comprehensive data results can be seen, the composite machine printing speed and copy speed, and the official cla
We scanned the ineo 550i in single-sided B at different resolutions of 200 dpi and 600 dpi. According to the test data, the higher the scanning resolution, the slower the scanning speed, but at 200dpi, the scanning speed reached a maximum of 140ipm single-sided, 280ipm double-sided, and is basically the same speed of black and white, color, and the official claims of the data. In this print test, we used different font sizes, and the ineo 550i easily met the 4pt standard, with clear text, even blackness, and a good overall reading sense.
In the dot matrix output test, the ineo 550i met the 1pix standard of accuracy, can present rich graphic details on both black and white backgrounds, and its fine print quality for the user’s daily document output and copy provides strong support.
