  • Hi Sonal,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    Generally, the printing speed is designed by Printer vendor. And generally the parameter PPM (Pages Per Minute) means this. Let's take this printer for example: HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CP4025 Printer series: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3965792.html?dnr=1 the ppm value is 35. In normal case, your will keep get 35 pages per minute.

    So if you want to get the total print time, you can use the total pages divide 35.

    I hope this will be helpful.

    Best regards,
