Groundbreaking bizhub PRESS series

KONICA Minolta South Africa has introduced the C6000 and C7000, two new products to its bizhub PRESS line-up of colour digital presses, designed to meet the demanding and diverse requirements of the commercial print sector.
The C6000 and C7000 digital colour presses build on the company’s flagship bizhub PRESS C8000, designed for light production printing.  With a print speed of up to 60 and 71 pages/minute respectively and an impressive maximum input capacity of up to 7 500 sheets, the bizhub PRESS C6000 and C7000 handle maximum monthly volumes of around 330 000 prints.

With the growing bizhub PRESS line of colour digital presses, Konica Minolta is setting a new colour standard in light production printing, and reducing overhead costs.


The bizhub PRESS C6000/C7000 will create extraordinary colour images with 1 200dpi resolution utilising automatic Image Density Control (IDC) that ensures consistently outstanding image fidelity over long runs.  By employing true eight-bit data compression, Konica Minolta has minimised RIP time while keeping colour 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 lets users build a system customised to their production environment.  The bizhub PRESS C6000 and C7000 will integrate with a host of third-party workflow solutions. In another Konica Minolta first, both PRESS systems will be available with the KM developed, IC-601 Professional Colour Image Controller, which was uniquely designed for the high-demand needs of print professionals.

‘The expansion of the bizhub PRESS range of colour digital presses further demonstrates our commitment to work alongside our customers’, support their growth and meet their rising production printing needs,’ comments Leon Minnie, product manager for Production Systems at Konica Minolta South Africa. ‘The new bizhub PRESS C6000 and C7000 digital colour presses offer outstanding image quality and image stability over long print runs, with output comparable to offset litho quality, raising the bar yet again.’ 
Konica Minolta’s exclusive Simitri HD colour polymerised 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 both bizhub PRESS models, optimised 1 200dpi print resolution achieves sharper lines, smoother graphics realism, and edge distortion, all while being easier on the environment.  According to Konica Minolta, another advantage of Simitri HD colour polymerised 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.
