Konica Minolta Launches New A3 MFPs
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) launched six new black and white A3 multifunctional printers (MFPs) to its bizhub® i-series.
According to Konica Minolta, the new release, namely bizhub 750i, 650i, 550i, 450i, 360i and 300i multifunctional devices, offer functionality with beneficial features for workplaces with printing needs ranging from low-volume to high-volume, not requiring color output.
The OEM claims that the launch expands Konica Minolta’s offering with the addition of the 75ppm 750i, a speed not available in its previous monochrome MFP lineup. Like all models in the bizhub i-Series product line, the new units meet a wide range of needs for businesses by offering a simple, convenient and secure smart technology hub to augment office connectivity.
Some features include:
The six new monochrome units are all based on the bizhub i-Series platform, with the same modern design and easy operation as the color line to ensure uniformity in operation and solution integration and services.
As an extension of the bizhub i-Series, the monochrome devices also offer the highest built-in security standards with additional options for a complete security setting. Data is protected and reliably accessible through a layered approach to ensure the ultimate defense against any potential threat.
Users of the new monochrome devices will enjoy many of the handy features offered by the i-Series line – not available on previous black and white models – that serve to increase productivity and serviceability. A new, soft close feature has been introduced on the dual scan feeder, and double-feed detection comes standard to avoid paper jams when media sticks together. First copy out and warm-up times have also been reduced to save time.
As part of Konica Minolta’s next-generation multifunctional device portfolio designed to empower digital workflows, the new monochrome MFPs have also been designed to work with sophisticated workflow tools such as Konica Minolta’s Dispatcher Suite, also layered by security options through bizhub SECURE services. This allows for businesses to have effective print management and advanced document workflow while maintaining document security.
“Keeping our customers and end users in mind, as well as the ever-changing ways of work, our bizhub® i-Series multifunctional devices offer versatile and tailored solutions for any type of business and organization, ensuring minimal disruption to productivity and efficiency,” said Dino Pagliarello, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “With the addition of the monochrome models, our i-Series product line is now complete, providing the ease of use we have become known for in the industry with the choice of color or black and white.”
In addition to the BLI PaceSetter award recognizing ease of use, Konica Minolta has received many other industry accolades for its bizhub i-Series, including the international Red Dot and Good Design awards for product design, ASTOR Homeland Security Awards and Better Buys Editor’s Choice awards.
The bizhub i-Series monochrome devices offer versatile configurations to meet customer requirements in terms of workflow, applications and budget.
