Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) has announced the launch of two full-colour A4 machines, bizhub C3120i and bizhub C3100i, suitable busy home offices, and smaller personal workgroups.
Both devices require a small footprint due to their small dimensions of 41 x 43cm and the machines are also noise-free in ready mode. The installation, configuration, and operation allow for quick use by the user, with the ability to save preferred settings. The control panel can be moved to a vertical position, which is helpful when sitting next to the device.
Both Android (Mopria) and iOS (AirPrint) as well as NFC tap-to-print/scan are supported. What is more, the dedicated Mobile Print app can be used to print, copy, scan, and fax from a smartphone or tablet. Additionally, with the bizhub C3120i documents and photos can be sent to print directly from a computer via Wi-Fi (as standard), or via the dedicated USB port on each machine, which provides a preview of the file prior to printing.
With the help of the embedded deskew feature, users can adjust the images they have taken with their smartphone of documents such as books or magazines and print the image.
A tray can store up to 250 sheets, reducing the need to reload during longer print runs. It can handle 60 gsm all the way up to 176 gsm cardstock, making it suitable for producing a wide range of different printed items. Thanks to double-sided printing and three levels of toner density (light, lighter, lightest) paper and toner consumption can be reduced. In addition, both devices will be awarded in Germany with Blue Angel Mark according to DE-UZ 219, which identifies environmentally friendly products. The TEC Value is only 0.38 kWh/week, which means that the devices consume very little energy.
Olaf Lorenz, Head of International Marketing Division, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe said, “Konica Minolta is recognised around the world as a market leader and innovator in print and solutions that create an intelligent connected workplace. These compact, highly connected, and affordable machines are perfect for people who are working and or studying in a home office environment and need a small, reliable, and highly functional machine.”
The bizhub C3120i and bizhub C3100i are available now.
