Konica Minolta high volume bizhubs
 Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has launched two high volume black and white multifunctionals, the bizhub 601 and the bizhub 751. With output speeds of 60 and 75 prints per minute respectively, the two new multifunctional bizhubs are designed for high volume black and white print output in busy office or CRD (central reprographic department) environments.

Both multifunctionals offer copy and network scan usage as standard with network print, user box and fax options. Both feature the latest bizhub design of charcoal black livery with white InfoLine and a large full colour 8.5-inch touch screen display that can be both rotated and tilted to suit a desired position.

The optional Emperon™ controller provides full network compatibility and ensures seamless integration with Windows, Mac, UNIX, Linux and Citrix support, making the new bizhubs compatible with virtually any network infrastructure. Emperon™ also supports XPS, Microsoft Vista's new XML paper specification. For network print PCL5e/6 and PostScript 3 are supported with print resolution equivalent to 2,400 by 600dpi.

Scanning speed for originals via the standard 100 sheet ADF is a maximum 75 per minute, with scan to email, FTP and SMB also available as standard. Scan formats include multi-page PDF and TIFF. For customers using archiving software this functionality allows high speed and accurate scanning of documents.

With the optional 80GB HDD installed, the customer can access Konica Minolta's User Box (archive) technology. Up to 1,000 User Boxes can be set up with flexible access rights and defined as public, for group use or private. Passwords are easily assigned where required. In addition Konica Minolta's PageScope Box Operator can provide direct access from the PC to the stored documents, while multi-file preview enables fast searches via thumbnails.

For operational security, the bizhub 601 and 751 comply with the latest international security standard ISO 15408 EAL3 and are equipped with a complete security package to keep critical information safe, preventing unauthorised access and make tampering with confidential information impossible. For fast and accurate access, Biometric Authentication Finger Vein Scanner and Non-contact IC Card (proximity) options are also available.

To manage high volume output the bizhub 601 and 751 have a standard paper capacity of 3,500 sheets from four trays, plus a 100 sheet by-pass facility. Paper supply can be expanded to a maximum of 7,600 sheets with an optional large capacity tray. Substrates up to 200gsm in weight can be fed from any of the trays and the auto duplex as well. Media up to A3+ in size can also be used. A range of high productivity finishing options are available for the bizhub 601 and 751 including saddle stitch, half fold, 3-fold, Z-fold and post inserting.

Commenting on the launch of the new high volume bizhubs, Wayne Snell, Group Product Manager for Konica Minolta office products said, "For high volume mono print output in demanding office environments the new bizhub 601 and 751 are ideal. In CRD use these bizhub systems will eat up work, making production of reports, training materials, manuals and other business documents fast and easy. In a challenging business environment Konica Minolta is once again providing customers with the skills to win!"
