Konica Minolta launches bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 series (Petaling Jaya, 4 July 2014) Konica Minolta is announcing a brand new colour production printer series, the bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 to meet new generation digital challenges. Meticulously engineered for print providers and professionals, these machines offer outstanding colour reproduction and registration stability, combined with excellent overall print quality. The bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 represent a milestone in production printing to suit for every customer – from beginners to professionals.
The new bizhub PRESS series is a powerful, flexible colour digital printing system that complements offset business perfectly. They are versatile enough to handle a wide range of print applications with improved media handling and come packed with capabilities.
With the new bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 series, Konica Minolta provides an easy path to digital at all levels of production printing. “We listen and respond to our customers’ demands positively. Therefore, we realised it was again time to develop suitable devices for production printing with the ability to improve productivity, reduce downtime, hence increase profitability,” says Tony Tang, General Manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd.
“Customers are looking for solutions that support demanding output complexities while maintaining superior color and monochrome quality and the bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 series responds to that need,” continues CK Lim, Head of Sales & Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd. “This next generation series from Konica Minolta helps customers power their production and improve turnaround times, while delivering superior results on each and every job.”
Deliver stable, quality results that exceed expectations
Konica Minolta’s new series features high-quality and high-accuracy finishes which exceed even competitive light-production printers. New technologies guarantee exceptional print results, including the Konica Minolta developed Simitri® HDE toner for more natural textures and better half- and skin-tones, Konica Minolta’s very own Screen Enhanced Digital Processing (in its fourth generation for precise and reliable image forming), an output feedback system for measuring quality on paper and automated real-time image density control and adjustment.
Increase profitability by maximising up-times
The bizhub PRESS C1070 and C1060 series maintain high-level productivity with 71 and 61 A4 pages per minute (ppm) respectively. This is 3,316 to 3,907 pages per hour (pph), which allow Konica Minolta to create added value by increasing customers’ productivity. The same high-level optional functions usually reserved for high-end devices are now available in a compact yet comprehensive system, including an extensive range of inline options for automated production of perfect bound and ring bound books and booklets. The series also has increased up-time with high-volume printing and flexible parts replacement.
Greatly expand the range of digital printing orders
The bizhub PRESS series enables print providers to create more business opportunities by handling a wide range of essential digital printing applications. The popular air suction feeding feature is available in this series for the first time, improving paper feeding on thick and coated papers. The series even comes with an automatic 2-sided printing feature for thick paper up to 300 gsm and improved thin-paper feeding. In addition, the newly developed Envelope Fuser Unit (EF-103) supports high-quality envelope printing.
Contributing to a sustainable society
The new bizhub PRESS series boasts a number of green features. The Simitri® HDE toner, for example, has been specially developed for energy-saving performance. Even better, the series is top of the class in using recycled PC and PET. The main body has been designed to be as compact as possible, meaning the bizhub PRESS series contributes to society with its reduced environmental impact.
