• Konica Minolta adds A4 mono devices to bizhub i-Series

        • Konica Minolta is extending its A4 monochrome bizhub i-Series portfolio with the launch of its multifunction printers (MFPs) bizhub 4750i, bizhub 4050i and the single-function printer (SFP) bizhub 4700i. 

          The devices offer enhanced performance, increased security and modern interfaces, thereby delivering reliability, quality and economy. The customisable and compact MFPs and SFP are perfect for modern offices and meet the full scope of monochrome imaging requirements. 

          Malcolm Smith, Product Marketing Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd said, “as an advanced provider of the digital workplace, Konica Minolta’s ‘Intelligent Connected Workplace’ concept is designed to meet these requirements and takes them into account when developing products. Extending Konica Minolta’s bizhub i-Series to include the new bizhub 4750i, bizhub 4700i and bizhub 4050i will complement our portfolio by bringing the same well-known user experience of our existing products to the A4 monochrome segment.”

          The bizhub 4750i, bizhub 4700i and bizhub 4050i are the direct successors to the bizhub 4752/4702/4052 and are more powerful, intuitive, and intelligent than their predecessors. On the one hand, this can be seen in a larger memory of 5 GB (bizhub 4750i/4050i) and 4 GB (bizhub 4700i) as well as in faster system storage SSD of 256 GB (standard) or 1 TB (optional) for bizhub 4750i and 4050i as well as higher system storage of 8 GB for the bizhub 4700i. They enable quicker processing times and thus faster operation. In addition, the scanning speed has increased significantly and is now 45 ipm in simplex colour and 90 ipm in duplex colour for the bizhub 4750i/4700i. 

          Furthermore, the devices include a function to detect document double feeds, meaning that the scanner stops automatically as soon as multiple document sheets have been fed at the same time. This prevents unwanted and time-consuming device malfunctions. 

          The larger touch panels of 10” (bizhub 4750i/4050i) and 7” (bizhub 4700i) with the intuitive user interface (UI) allow more comfortable and easy operation without the necessity for extensive training. The touch panel gives users access to the Konica Minolta Marketplace. This is already pre-installed; users thus have a powerful platform for managing and easily implementing new applications. Konica Minolta ensures the compatibility of these solutions with the devices as well as regular updates. Licences are also managed. To deliver cost efficiency and flexibility, Konica Minolta only charges for applications actually used. 

          All three devices include the latest version of Open API, so external workflow applications can easily be integrated. Also, the Web API is now available, allowing printing of websites and emails directly from the panel. Furthermore, IWS (Internal Web Server) enables the user interface to be customised based on operator requirements. 

          To ensure the highest security standards, Konica Minolta decided to partner with Bitdefender to ensure its latest anti-virus solution can be installed as an option. 

          The bizhub 4750i, bizhub 4700i and bizhub 4050i will be available from December 2020.
