Konica Minolta has announced the launch of three new colour A3 multifunctional printers (MFPs), the C450i, C550i and C650i which offer a choice of 45ppm, 55ppm or 65ppm print speeds, respectively.

“The three new MFPs not only offer fast, reliable solutions for document handling but also serve as an intelligent device that effectively becomes the heart of the customer’s digital office. They can also be tailored to meet the requirements of each business with the wide breadth of applications that are available from Konica Minolta’s Marketplace, which is pre-installed on every device,” said Deepu Panicker, product manager, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Middle East.  “As an added highlight, the three new MFPs feature a dual-scan document feeder that can accommodate up to 300 sheets, with a faster 280 ipm scan speed. They also feature large newly designed finishers with an integrated manual stapler. The new higher speed bizhub i-Series models also have an automatic intelligent media sensor that can detect paper weight and media type, which helps reduce incurred costs for additional IT support and repair for avoidable paper jams. This additional feature, unique to Konica Minolta solutions technology, provides uninterrupted use, increasing productivity, unmatched in the office print market,” Panicker added.

These 3 new models replace the existing bizhub C458, bizhub C558 and bizhub C658 models, and have usability features like the new card-type quick copy screen, and the newly developed widget technology that allows embedding and operating functionality directly from the MFP’s home screen, shortening the time spent in front of the MFP and ensuring familiar use across all bizhub i-Series devices, standard 8 GB of memory and 256 GB plus optional 1 TB solid state drive (SSD).
