Konica Minolta New Monochrome Presses
Konica Minolta today announced the availability of the bizhub PRESS 1250/1052 series of monochrome presses which are based on the existing bizhub PRO 1200 line.
The new systems have maximum output speeds of up to 125 pages per minute and are rated for a production cycle of up to 3,000,000 impressions per month. As well, all models feature tandem printing functionality to double output speeds as well as the ability to print on a substrate range from 40 GSM up to 350 GSM.
Using Konica Minolta’s Simitri HD polymerized toner, the systems handle media sizes up to 12 x 19 inches, while producing a 1,200 x 1,200-dpi resolution. The new systems are described by the company as featuring improved photoconductor design and transfer belt image technology.
The bizhub PRESS 1250/1052 series includes a 15-inch touch-screen control panel with thumbnail print-job previews. The user interface employs icons to highlight paper tray and output tray for setup, and separate command sequences for print, copy and scan functions. Job List, Job Ticket Editing, and Job Scheduling functions are available on-screen to help manage last-minute changes.
