Konica Minolta Europe announced the launch of the bizhub 25e on February 13th. Intended as an entry-level machine, this multifunction product manufactured by Muratec runs at 25 ppm and has several interesting features for this segment of the market: up to four 500-sheet paper trays, and a second output tray, for faxes for example. The feeder can scan in automatic duplex. On the other hand, the driver and the monochrome interface are significantly different to the rest of the Konica Minolta multifunction range.
At the other end of Konica Minolta's office monochrome range, the new bizhub 654 and 754 are the first black and white A3 devices to benefit from the new design already available across the color range, from the C224 to the C754. As well as the new 9-inch touch screen supporting drag and drop, the manufacturer is highlighting the devices' support for media up to 300 g/m² up to SRA3 (12 x 18) or banner-format up to 1.2m (4 feet).
Scan features have not been overlooked: the bizhub 654 and 754 have a dual-head scanner which can smoothly scan up to 180 images per minute (90 ppm simplex).
Full technical specifications for all these new Konica Machines will be available to DMO subscribers in the next few days.
