Print Margins and Straight Through Printing
 
I am looking for a color laser printer that can meet the following:

1. straight through printing with an unattended tray capability of about 40 card stock 8.5 x 11 sheets. that would be 65 pound card stock.

2. if I can get the left and right margins to 0.15 inches. the HP I tried was 0.24 and while the difference may seem insignificant, it is necessary for my needs.

3. duplexing would be nice.

I suspect that this level of tech requirement would need to be circulated directly to potential suppliers to get your 'best' answers.

I have done tests for my own benefit on a series of mono lasers for edge stripping via printing an oversize image shaded right to the edges, and found the print limits of each of them - but the best I can do has been about 3mm on one sied & 5~6mm on the other side. For some reason it's never identical side to side

a) - as I said above, I have done tests for my own benefit on a series of mono lasers and this might not be what you are after
b) - the printers are a HP laserjet, 1020 & Canon LBP3100
c) - I am using international A4 sized paper of 210mm x 297mm and covering it with a grid pattern from my graphics software [Open Office] before printing to see how close the laser can get to the edges
