MFP integrates high speed colour scanning

Konica Minolta has integrated dual sided, high speed colour scanning and a flexible OpenAPI interface into its new bizhub PRO 1100 multifunctional printer (MFP).

The high speed colour scanning capacity of up to 180ppm in the bizhub PRO 1100 is in addition to print speeds of up to 100 ppm, and the availability of the Tandem printing functionality  allows two PRO 1100 systems to be combined, doubling output speeds for the biggest of print jobs on the tightest of deadlines.

The bizhub PRO 1100 can handle expected average volumes of between 150,000 and 300,000 prints and peaks up to 2.2 million black and white prints per month.

The MFP is equipped with the new user-friendly developer platform, bizhub OP. This open platform contains an OpenAPI communication system that allows application developers to create applications that communicate with the bizhub PRO 1100.

The monochrome printer is the first production printing device from Konica Minolta to support the bizhub OP open platform technology. It allows the use of third-party applications for accounting, authentication or scan-routing applications including YSoft, Safe Q and eCopy.

Grant Thomas, Product Marketing Manager for Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia, said, “We are very excited to launch the bizhub PRO 1100 in our local market. This third generation system is built on the same engine platform of the bizhub PRESS 1250e engine and features a solid, long-lasting frame with LED print engine that has proven technology and reliability to enhance any monochrome print requirements.”  

The PRO 1100 is available with a wide range of finishing options including production of stapled documents of up to 100 pages, booklet creation, punching 2 and 4-hole and automatic ring binding.  The optional GBC punch unit is available with a wide range of die sets, which ensure compatibility with most popular punching schemes, such as metal-based (wire) binding or plastic (comb) binding. The folding options include a Z-folding unit for including A3 documents in A4 printouts and a letter-folding function.
