Konica Minolta Approves Finch Paper for bizhub
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
Finch Paper today announces it has been selected by Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) as one of the first to have its Finch Fine Color Copy and Finch Opaque Digital lines tested and approved for the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 Color Digital Press. The paper grades have been added to Konica Minolta’s new Media Guide for commercial printers.
Konica Minolta’s Formalized Substrate Testing Process
Several factors, including increasingly higher production speeds, have necessitated closer inspection of substrates to assess their suitability for Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS digital presses. Papers must be well manufactured, run consistently, and generally meet the demands of the press from pick-up and registration through to toner transfer, fusing and exiting the press for post-processing steps.
“Konica Minolta’s approval process includes testing on feed, fusing, jamming, registration, slipping, curling and scratching. By approving the Finch papers, our commercial printers can have a level of comfort and confidence that the paper has been extensively evaluated,” Nye continues.

Why Finch Fine Color Copy and Finch Opaque Digital Are a Fit for bizhub Systems
“Finch Fine Color Copy is a true, optimized digital substrate,” says Connie Harrison, Digital Applications Manager, Finch Paper. “Smoothness and surface topography have a direct influence on the setting of toner layers on the paper. This is even more important with newer presses that use smaller toner particles and therefore require a smoother surface to emphasize finer detail and sharper edges in the print image.
“Finch’s digital lines are precision sheeted to today’s digital tight tolerance to ensure high throughput and runnability,” she adds. “We take the necessary steps to manufacture our digital paper lines to tighter moisture tolerances than offset to ensure uniform toner transfer sheet to sheet, and carton to carton,” Harrison adds.
