Outstanding Digital Press Performance Earns Annual Production Print Award from Industry Analyst

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. today announced that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) has awarded Konica Minolta the 2014 PRO Award for “Outstanding Monochrome Light- to Mid-Volume Production Device” for the bizhub® PRESS 1250 digital press.

Having generated tens of millions of impressions on production devices from the leading vendors over several years, BLI’s production tests reveal the attributes that distinguish the most outstanding performers in a challenging evaluation covering productivity, image quality, media handling, ease of use and more. BLI's “PRO Awards” recognize the best production devices as determined in these rigorous production tests.

“The bizhub PRESS 1250 is a true production workhorse,” said David Sweetnam, head of BLI’s European Research and Lab Services. “Its throughput speeds were among the fastest tested to date on heavy-grade stocks and better than those of competitors on A3 and SRA3 media. It also handled mixed-media workflows well and experienced virtually no drop-off in rated speed when running sub-set stapling and perfect bindery jobs.  The bizhub PRESS 1250’s outstanding productivity and media handling, along with the wealth of feedback it provides, ensure that jobs will not only get done quickly, but with minimal interruptions,” added Sweetnam. “Plus, a new tandem print ability further boosts productivity by allowing a job to be split across two devices.” 

“Delivering innovative solutions that meet the highest performance standards in the industry is one of our primary goals,” said Kevin Kern, senior vice president, Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc.  “This award acknowledges our commitment to addressing the evolving needs of our customers, and ensuring they can count on Konica Minolta for reliable technology that keeps them competitive and productive.”
