Konica Minolta South Africa has launched the new bizhub PRESS C1100 series, which is ideally placed to create new sources of revenue for customers, and maximise uptime and print orders. The new colour production printers are perfect for graphic communication providers, central reprographic departments and anyone who needs large print volumes delivered at high speeds. The new series also offers outstanding performance, first-rate quality and attractive added value. In keeping with the motto: ‘Better performance while cutting time and costs’, the new digital colour production printers also meet the demands for completing a wider range of high-volume jobs more efficiently while meeting high-level specifications and enhancing output. With printing speeds of 100ppm the bizhub PRESS C1100 series offers the fastest of Konica Minolta’s colour production printers. Various types of printing jobs with tight deadlines can be completed more efficiently and punctually while cutting operating costs and work time. In addition, the new devices offer high-performance printing, the same printing speed for paper weights ranging from 55gsm to 350gsm, as well as automatic duplex printing, which all improve efficiency and prevent productivity loss. Stable paper feeding is also guaranteed by various paper feed units, with or without scanner functions. Up to three paper feeding modules can be connected to boost the devices’ performance to a maximum of nine trays, thus offering a capacity of 13 890 sheets. ‘In order to attract new customers and retain existing ones in a highly competitive market, it is essential to provide a wide range of products, supply consistently high quality and meet professional demands. The bizhub PRESS C1100 series will most certainly satisfy customer stipulations,’ said Leon Minnie, product manager: production systems at Konica Minolta South Africa. The SIMITRI HD E polymerised toner, inherent to Konica Minolta products, guarantees consistently high-quality image output and better environmental performance. Advanced S.E.A.D. IV image processing technology also improves image quality and reproducibility. ‘The recently introduced combination of paper alignment detection and auto adjustment has considerably improved paper alignment accuracy,’ added Minnie. Stabilised high-quality image output further guarantees accurate colour reproduction, and stability is enhanced by sampling the characteristics of the output paper and the colour feedback sensor. The bizhub PRESS C1100 can be equipped with a wide range of finishing options to create professional print products in one step without manual intervention. ‘With these products, flexible production systems meet professional demands and fulfil a wide range of post-processing requirements to increase profitability by reducing operating hours, cutting costs and adding value. The series’ products also feature a wide range of finishing options such as booklet production, perfect binding, auto ring binding and, of course, high stacking capabilities of up to 10 000 sheets. ‘With the bizhub PRESS C1100 series, we have taken the next step in the colour production printer market. Performance is the key to boosting the print supply businesses, and that’s exactly what these devices deliver,’ concluded Minnie.
