High performance technology with seamless mobile connectivity
Specifically designed to meet the needs of the contemporary workplace, the Konica Minolta bizhub A3 colour series of multifunction devices offers a whole range of advanced features, functions and built-in benefits to help your people work faster and more efficiently, and to produce superior quality material – every time.
Flexible and easy to use
When it comes to usability, the bizhub C227/C287 models are extremely easy to operate. This is due to the intuitive INFOPalette design, and the new 7 inch touch panel with embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) for Android devices and Bluetooth Low Energy for iOS devices, providing convenient touch-to-print as well as touch-to-scan functionality. Functions can be selected with natural swipe, pinch, zoom, drag and drop gestures – just like other smart devices.
Professional quality printing, in house
The A3 colour series can accommodate a wide range of paper sizes and weights up to 300 gsm and can produce originals on SRA3 sheets to preserve margins and crop marks. The optional EFI Fiery image controller* lets you handle specific PANTONE colour requirements, manage print queues and fine-tune colour output to suit the needs of any job. These powerful additional functions make the bizhub A3 colour series the perfect choice for in-house printing of short run documents and brochures.
Reduce wasted power without sacrificing efficiency
This new series features an innovative, dynamic eco timer which can be programmed on a weekday, date or time basis. It automatically analyses usage and improves settings. For example, it will automatically switch to sleep mode during a recurring lunch break. A special built-in sensor wakes up the device from sleep mode when it senses the user approaching the panel surface. Plus, thanks to its extremely short warm up time (as low as 18 seconds), your people needn’t wait to get their documents ready.
Eco meter and control panel preview
Information on toner and paper savings are also displayed on the new Eco Meter, making it easy to assess environmental contributions by the device. A blank page removal function also helps prevent paper wastage by detecting and preventing blank pages, found within a set of originals, from being copied or scanned. Plus, a real-time scan and copy preview on the control panel allows you to preview one page at a time, to confirm the position of each document and perform post-scan editing.
High speed print, copy, duplex scan and warm up time
Many of the devices in the bizhub A3 colour series give you the fastest single-pass duplex scanning speeds in their class. Double-sided documents are scanned in one go – with duplex colour and mono scanning running at up to 180 ppm and simplex colour and mono scanning running at up to 90 ppm. The bizhub A3 colour series also boasts best in class warm up performance, as low as 18 seconds, meaning they are ready to print at a moment’s notice. First copy out times are also impressive, producing quality output in as low as 4.6 seconds colour and 4.1 seconds monochrome.
Today’s office printing requirements extend beyond wired communication. The bizhub A3 colour series features wireless and Bluetooth printing from mobile phones – and enables you to print from or save to, flash-memory devices via a convenient USB connector. The PageScope mobile app enables busy professionals to print and scan, to and from smartphones and other portables, directly to networked bizhub devices.
