Top Benefits and Features of the Konica Minolta Bizhub Printers

To ensure that your business needs and the Konica Minolta bizhub printers align, it’s best to explore them in-depth. The benefits and features to follow are synonymous across bizhub printers, with slight variations in print speed, scan speed, and resolution. 

High-Quality, Professional Print Documents

It’s standard practice for some businesses to outsource print jobs requiring professional finesse or top-notch colored printing. However, third-party intervention isn't needed with the impressive Konica Minolta bizhub as an alliance.

Bizhub gives you the confidence to print documents in-house with an expert touch whenever you need them, due to its toner technology formulated using Simitri®. 

Simitri® is a high-quality toner developed by Konica Minolta, where color pigment particles merge with a resin. It’s the first polymerized toner to hit the market for monochrome multifunction printers (printers primarily printing black and white documents). 

Through further innovations, Simitri® HD+ toner was released, which has revolutionized printing for both monochrome and color. 

When compared with the industry that only uses 57.2% and 13.3% polymerized toner for color and monochrome, respectively, Konica Minolta is ahead of the game. Up to 99.6% color toner and 96.5% monochrome toner used by Konica Minolta is polymerized. 

Polymerized toners are said to be the superior quality, when compared to the pulverized toners mainly used in the industry. 

  • Detail focused
    Printouts are produced with razor-sharp, crisp detail. This gives your documents a polished, professional look that’s rich and vibrant in color. 

  • Reduced printing costs
    Toner consumption is less when printing color-laden documents like brochures, presentations, reports, newsletters, etc.

The Konica Minolta Bizhub C458 Multifunction Printer is a superb option when you need to print documents with finer details. With 1200 x 1200 DPI, C458 produces documents with distinctly legible text and consistently sharp images without excessive noise.

Speed Enhancement 

The fast internal processing speed of Bizhub MFPS allows you to get more done when you’re pressed for time and have a lot of documents that need printing, copying, or scanning. 

The printer churns out the first copy in 7 seconds (sometimes less), so you can start working quickly.

Even with large volumes of image and color-heavy documents, the bizhub MFPs get the job done in no time. You never have to sacrifice speed and quality, as these printers are built to give the best of both worlds.

Reinforced Security to Safeguard Sensitive Data

The Bizhub series was built to tackle the growing need for data protection. Each device incorporates a discretionary IC card reader that makes verifying a user simple and fast. 

This means that unwanted access is prevented from seeing secret information - a good measure to have in place, especially when you deal with confidential matters daily.

Other considerations to revving up security include biometric authentication, iClass Cards, Magnetic Stripe Cards, etc.

Environmentally Friendly 

The Konica Minolta Bizhub printers were engineered with environmentally friendly practices and innovations. This means lighter carbon emissions, making it safer for everyone to exist. 

For example, Konica Minolta’s latest proprietary high-definition toner, Simitri®, was prepared using renewable plant-based resources/biomass. This lessens the impact printing has on the ecosystem and minimizes energy consumption as the toner adheres to paper at reduced temperatures.

In line with Energy Star certification requirements, the bizhub printers vastly surpass the stipulated standards and consume less power. Konica Minolta helps you reduce your carbon footprint when printing

Other noteworthy energy-efficient features include: 

  • An Optimize Power Consumption mode 

  • A Print Preview Driver to reduce mistakes

  • Energy-saving LED lamps 

  • Recycled materials as building blocks for the printer
