14 Overview

15 Konica Minolta bizhub PRO C65hc

16 Chroma color – first printer with RGB ¯ Wider color gamut (RGB color space, better greens and oranges) ¯ Better registration accuracy (1 mm) ¯ Air-assist paper feed (to separate individual sheets) ¯ Resolution is 600 x 1,800 dpi, 256 toner gradations ¯ Based on chemically grown toner rather than toner created by mechanical grinding = thinner layers for a smoother finish 65 ppm A4, 36 ppm A3, pages monthly duty cycle Paper sizes from 4” x 6” up to 13” x 19.2” Optional feeder for 7,500 sheets (PF-602), standard 4,750 (LU-202) Warm-up time 6.5 minutes Toner extra (+ click charge)

17 Konica Minolta bizhub PRO C65hc Other advantages of Konica’s Simitri HiChro chemical toner ¯ Reflects 80% of light (vibrant images) ¯ Smaller 6.5 microns toner particles (smoother finish, sharper text), mechanical toner is 8 microns ¯ Toner resistant to cracking at the folds ¯ Fusing is oil-free (more finishing options; lamination, printing on foils) ¯ Fusing temperature of 15 degrees lower than conventional toners (less energy required) ¯ Less waste and emits 40% less CO2, NO2, SO2 19 possible configurations EFI or Creo front-ends
