Ramsey, NJ – February 3, 2014 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces the launch of the bizhub PRESS C1070/C1070P/C1060 series and bizhub PRO C1060L color digital presses.
Ideal for production and commercial environments, as well as customers across a broad range of industries including legal, healthcare and education, the bizhub PRESS C1070/C1070P/C1060 series and bizhub PRO C1060L improve upon the successful bizhub PRESS C6500 series and bizhub PRESS C7000 series. With the ability to handle a broad range of substrates and various inline finishing options, this new bizhub PRESS series can handle complex print specifications without compromising speed or quality. Featuring the fourth generation of Konica Minolta’s Simitri HDE toner, as well as Screen-Enhancing Active Digital (SEAD IV) processing, the new series delivers superior quality and enhanced electro-photographic in both color and B&W.
- High-speed digital color printing with a print/copy output of 70 ppm in color and B&W, with fast scanning for hard-copy originals
- 1200 x 1200 DPI resolution with 8-bit processing for smoother, more realistic images
- SEAD IV Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Processing System continuously maintains image stability
- Large 15” color touch-screen display with familiar PC-like operation
- Simitri® HD toner with biomass to reduce environmental impact
- 7,500-sheet maximum paper capacity for long press runs without interruption

- Versatile inline finishing options to suit any production need
With these next-generation bizhub PRESS models, Konica Minolta takes another step forward in digital color production. A redesigned print engine offers high-quality production color with rugged, cost-effective performance. Superior color imaging achieves near-offset quality with simple setup and precise stability over long press runs. And expanded paper-handing, in-line finishing and image control capabilities boost your output power while simplifying operation to reduce your labor costs. With up to 70 ppm print/copy color output, plus fast scanning and powerful job handling features, the bizhub PRESS C1070 delivers brilliant, high-resolution images ideal for production, commercial, and print-for-pay applications. The bizhub PRESS C1070P gives you print-only performance with the same 70 ppm speed and superior image quality. And the bizhub PRESS C1060 provides up to 60 ppm print/copy output for real value in light production and high-volume corporate needs.
Whichever model you choose, you’ll have a purpose-built professional in a powerful iron box-type chassis with long-lasting parts and high-yield consumables – all in a flat, square cabinet with heavy-duty metal paper trays and a much smaller overall footprint to save space on your production floor.
You’ll also be able to customize a right-size solution for your needs – with scalable finishing options for producing full color flyers and brochures, reports and presentations with tri-fold spreadsheet pages, saddle-stitch booklets or perfect-bound books, and GBC hole-punched or in-line ring-bound training manuals and educational or human resource packages. And you’ll have streamlined digital workflow with web-based job submission to get the job done better for general business, as well as healthcare, legal, educational and other specialized applications.
“Customers are looking for solutions that support
demanding output complexities while maintaining superior color and monochrome quality and the bizhub PRESS C1070/C1070P/C1060 series and bizhub PRO C1060L respond to that need,” says Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “This next generation series from Konica Minolta helps customers power their production and improve turnaround times, all while delivering superior results on each and every job.”
The bizhub PRESS C1070/C1070P/C1060 series and bizhub PRO C1060L include advanced paper handling technologies for smooth, problem-free print runs. Air-assisted Paper Feeder options (PF-602, LU-202) have two variable-speed blowers on front and back of their trays to eliminate paper jams. In addition, an optional air-suction Paper Feed Unit (PF-707) offers additional paper-handling power previously available only on higher-output devices. The new digital presses also feature the Adobe PDF Print Engine 3, the next-generation rendering platform, optimized for end-to-end PDF workflows.
“Adobe welcomes the introduction of the new bizhub PRESS C1070 line of printers from Konica Minolta,” says Raman Nagpal, Senior Direct of Print Business at Adobe Systems. “The option to drive the bizhub PRESS C1070 with the Adobe PDF Print Engine, along with powerful next-generation capabilities, will increase production efficiency in the reproduction of color-accurate images and graphics.”
