Ramsey, NJ (Vocus) October 3, 2010
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta), a leading provider of advanced imaging and networking technologies for the desktop to the print shop, today at GRAPH EXPO 2010 will introduce the next three systems in the bizhub® PRESS Series of color digital presses. With the bizhub PRESS C7000, bizhub PRESS 7000P, and bizhub PRESS C6000, Konica Minolta is introducing disruptive, industry-leading technologies that further strengthen its market-leading position in the production print arena and enhance print professionals’ return on investment (ROI). Building upon the advanced imaging technology in the award-winning bizhub PRESS C8000, customers will immediately recognize how the product line’s innovative new engine improves image quality while reducing costs.
Konica Minolta’s powerful trio of new digital color presses, along with the recently launched bizhub PRESS C8000, raises the bar in color quality, providing customers with world-class imaging at up to 70 color ppm to meet the needs of fast-paced production environments. The bizhub PRESS C7000 (70ppm) and bizhub PRESS C6000 (60ppm) provide high-speed print professionals with built-in print/copy/scan capability, while the bizhub PRESS C7000P offers a high-speed color print system that users can count on to stay ahead of rising and unpredictable workloads. Thanks to Konica Minolta technology innovations that improve throughput speed and output quality, customers will experience outstanding color stability from the first print to the last print of any job.
Setting New Color Standards
With the growing bizhub PRESS line of color digital presses, Konica Minolta is setting a new color standard in light production printing while also reducing overhead costs. The bizhub PRESS C7000/C6000 Series will create extraordinary color images with 1200dpi resolution and automatic Image Density Control (IDC) that ensures consistently outstanding image fidelity over long runs. By employing true 8-bit data compression, Konica Minolta has minimized RIP time while keeping color production in high gear from start to finish. An air assist paper separation system provides enhanced support for heavy and coated stocks and powerful print control combined with flexible in-line finishing options let users build a system customized to their production environment. The bizhub PRESS C7000/C6000 Series will integrate with a host of third-party workflow solutions. Additionally, in another Konica Minolta first, the Series will offer the home-grown IC-601 color image controller, which was uniquely designed for the high-demand needs of print professionals.
“With our bizhub PRESS product line, we have succeeded in delivering an even higher color quality, lower total cost of ownership and increased customer satisfaction – all great reasons to count on Konica Minolta,” said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “The bizhub PRESS C7000/C6000 Series is comprised of big-iron production systems that will meet rising production needs in corporate, commercial and print-for-pay applications, and print professionals will see an immediate difference with the brilliant, natural image quality.”
A Decided Advantage for Print Professionals
Konica Minolta’s exclusive Simitri® HD color polymerized toner uses biomass, an organic resource that reduces environmental impact compared to conventional toner. It leverages smaller, more uniform particles to reproduce ultra-fine image detail. In all three new bizhub PRESS models, optimized 1200 dpi print resolution achieves sharper lines, smoother graphics realism, and edge distortion, all while being easier on the environment. Another advantage of Simitri HD color polymerized toner is its thinner core shell structure, requiring a lower fusing temperature than conventional toner particles. This allows print professionals to achieve faster print processing speeds and increased image stability, a major benefit for production jobs demanding heavy paper stock.
The bizhub PRESS C7000/C6000 Series of Color Digital Presses is available now through Konica Minolta's North American direct sales and authorized dealer sales channels.
