Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. introduced the bizhub C554/C454 series of high-speed color multifunction printers (MFPs) earlier today.
Offering print, scan, copy and fax capability the C554/C454 devices have color and black and white output speeds of 55 pages per minute (ppm) and 45 ppm, respectively. The new bizhub MFPs include the vendor?s Emperon print system with 1,200 dpi print resolution for high-quality images and improved standard single-pass dual scanning with speeds of up to 160 originals per minute.
The devices offer a maximum paper capacity of up to 6,650 sheets, with standard dual paper feed cabinets and optional large capacity paper units for long print runs. The newest MFPs accommodate media in sizes up to 12 x 18-inch and weights from 14lb. bond paper to 100lb. cover stock.
Auto finishing supports stapled, hole-punched, saddle-stitched or tri-folded output for documents such as reports, presentations, brochures and manuals in full color or black and while.
Both devices use the touch and swipe INFO-Palette design that brings business information to the MFP screen including downloadable apps to enhance productivity. The 9-inch color screen incorporates next-generation functions like pop-up menus ad scrolling function keys. Users can also customize command icons to suit their workflow, according to the company.
The bizhub C554/C454 series features the newest generation of Konica Minolta?s Sitri HD toner formulation that uses biomass plant-based materials to reduce environmental impact and fuses to paper at lower temperature to reduce power consumption.
