Konica Minolta's High-Speed Bizhub 40P Laser Printer

 Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd has launched the bizhub 40P
laser printer for use by individual users or workgroups. The bizhub 40P's
rapid print speed of 43ppm means it can meet continuous demand for
large quantities of monochrome documents. A first page out speed of
9.5 seconds means users don't have to wait for one off prints and the
high speed gigabit Ethernet USB 2.0 connection ensures the fast
download of even large graphics files.
Print resolution is 1200 by 1200 dpi giving excellent print results on text,
graphics and half-tones. This powerful and reliable performance is
backed by the very latest Konica Minolta EmperonTM controller, 500
MHz processing and 128 MB standard memory.

With an optional 40G byte hard drive the bizhub 40P provides native
support for XPS (XML Paper Specification) from Microsoft Vista. Built
into the EmperonTM system, is compatibility with PostScript 3 and PCL6
printing languages. Support for a range of operating systems including
Apple Mac and Linux plus business applications is also assured, as well
as seamless network integration.

The innovative bizhub 40P can print direct from graphic files (PDF, TIFF,
JPEG) straight from a USB memory stick, without PC intervention (HDD
or CompactFlash card required).

When used as a workgroup printer, secure control of prints to the bizhub
40P can be managed with the secure printing option. By first setting an
alphanumerical password on the user's computer, printing is delayed
until the code is entered again on the front panel of the bizhub 40P.
Confidential print output can then be collected. Job accounting for
workgroups is also simple. Details of every print job are tracked so
departmental billings can be accurately calculated and costs controlled.

Standard paper feed is a 550 sheet cassette and 150 sheet multi-purpose
tray. With an optional 1,100 page lower feed drawer the maximum
capacity is 1,800 pages, allowing the bizhub 40P to tackle large volume
print jobs with a variety of paper types up to 216gsm. Special
documents, such as invoices, packing lists, envelopes and labels, come
out smooth and crisp.

For greater flexibility of output the bizhub 40P is available with an
optional 500-sheet offset stacker and an optional duplexer unit,
allowing environmentally friendly double-sided printing, which also
saves on paper costs.

For Konica Minolta, Richard Necus, Group Product Manager said of the
bizhub 40P, "Market demand for high-speed mono printers continues to
be strong and the bizhub 40P meets this need. Konica Minolta is now
able to meet all customer document imaging needs from the desktop to
high-speed digital presses."
