September 17, 2018 - Konica Minolta Australia has announced the availability of its new portfolio of A4 mono printers, all-in-one devices and multifunction printers (MFPs). Offering enhanced performance and modern interfaces for effortless operation, the portfolio delivers reliability, quality and economy across a range of low-footprint A4 devices. Encompassing everything from premium, highly customisable, enterprise-class MFPs, to cost-effective out-of-the-box printing solutions for small offices, the new portfolio meets the full scope of monochrome imaging requirements.
Shane Blandford, director of marketing and innovation, Konica Minolta, said, “Knowing how to choose the right printer is an important part of ensuring that a business is supported for future growth. Regardless of the size of the business, Konica Minolta has a solution that can meet its needs.”
Konica Minolta’s new high-end A4 models succeed the existing bizhub 4050 and 4750. They share the IT architecture of Konica Minolta’s A3 devices and provide the same functionality and familiar user experience through identical interfaces. As with their A3 siblings, the new A4 MFPs fully support server-based as well as embedded applications for easier customisation of the user interface (UI). The bizhub 4052 and 4752 are the first Konica Minolta A4 devices with dual scan feeders, improving on the performance of their predecessors with faster scan speeds of up to 94 ipm in duplex.
Elsewhere, increased memory (2GB as standard/4GB max) enables faster operation. The new models also support mobile device connectivity, including near-field communication (NFC), to enable easy-to-use features such as touch-to-print, touch-to-scan, touch-to-authenticate and touch-to-pair. Services such as AirPrint, Google Cloud Print and Mopria Print are included.
The new bizhub 3622 and bizhub 4422 all-in-one devices are an affordable, compact option for customers requiring print, copy, scan and fax functionality but without the need for special customisation. While the 36 ppm bizhub 3622 provides an ideal out-of-the-box MFP solution for small offices or for workgroups at an SMB level, the 44 ppm bizhub 4422 caters to more demanding situations with faster speeds, broader input options, a 4.3-inch LCD touch panel with an intuitive user interface and other more advanced features. Both printers also offer further capabilities such as an optional barcode or IPDS function. The bizhub 3622 provides Wi-Fi as standard, which caters to small office environments that often have more limited network infrastructure or fewer options to access a nearby Ethernet connection. The bizhub 3622 is the successor to the bizhub 3320, while the bizhub 4422 replaces the bizhub 4020.
The new monochrome A4 printers have been created for small and home offices as well as mixed environments with A3 devices in large departments, and enterprise customers, where individual printers are required among A3 devices. This makes them ideal for customers who need reliability and high quality from a cost-effective, standalone device.
The new models succeed the bizhub 3301P/4000P/4700P. Each has been designed to address different needs: the bizhub 3602P offers an out-of-the-box solution for customers who don’t require different paper input options or further functionality. Compared to the previous model, it offers faster printing at 36 ppm (vs. 33 ppm for the 3301P), and Wi-Fi connectivity as standard.
The bizhub 4402P is an ideal device for customers requiring higher speeds at 44 ppm (vs. 40 ppm for the 4000P), and a wider range of paper input capabilities. All devices offer improved performance thanks to higher RAM memory and faster processors than their predecessors, further options such as a barcode or IPDS function to enhance its scope of capabilities, as well as mobile printing capabilities.
The 47 ppm bizhub 4702P is the device of choice for customers who require fast printing, and printing from USB. It also offers a larger capacity than the bizhub 4402P, with a maximum configurable capacity of 2,300 sheets.
