Press release Konica Minolta presents bizhub 20 and 20P – big on office tasks, small in size, fit for the desktop Langenhagen, Germany, July 2010 Konica Minolta’s A4 bizhub 20 and 20P monochrome models complement productive corporate output solutions. The particular appeal of both models lies in their fast output speed and small footprint. Conveniently situated on one’s personal desktop, they provide extra flexibility and confidentiality, for example in financial or human resources departments. The bizhub 20 combines printing, copying, faxing and colour scanning capabilities, while the bizhub 20P specialises in easing the print load of a small workgroup. “Small but powerful is a most accurate description for our two new bizhub models,” says Christina Degener, Product Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. “They feature a very fast print speed and almost instantaneous availability. Up to 30 monochrome pages can be processed in just one minute. It takes a mere 8.5 seconds to get the first print out.” With their handy dimensions and a lightweight design, the two new bizhubs can be placed next to one’s personal workplace. This adds to both convenient access and confidential workflows. Both devices easily integrate into existing printing networks. The two models are equipped with a 250-sheet paper tray plus a 50-sheet multipurpose tray that can be extended to an overall paper capacity of 800 sheets for the bizhub 20P and 550 sheets for the bizhub 20. The multifunctional product and the printer allow printing with a 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution and include a standard duplexing unit.
While the bizhub 20P offers its users reliable and highly efficient monochrome printing capabilities, the bizhub 20 covers all daily office jobs. Printing, copying, faxing and scanning come easy with the new personal all-rounder. Users can scan directly to E-mail, to FTP, to SMB and to USB. Scanning is available both in monochrome and in full colour â€“ a fact that is very useful when working with pictures, articles from papers or magazines or when amending other pre-printed material. When it comes to copying, the bizhub 20 reaches a high speed of up to 30 copies a minute. Thanks to the standard duplex ADF, multi-page documents can be processed quickly and easily. With multifunctional products in particular, user rights may need to be limited. User authentication makes it easy to limit general access to certain functions, such as print, copy, scan or USB direct print. Konica Minolta state-of-the-art printing and office communication devices make a contribution to environmental sustainability and economic use of resources. From an environmentally aware point of view, duplex printing, for instance, is very sensible for significantly reducing paper usage. The bizhub 20 and 20P have been certified with the Blue Angel and Energy Star. These awards testify to the devicesâ€™ low energy consumption, quiet operation and easy indoor operation. Both come with an efficient power save mode and long-life toner, which leads to better toner yields.
Although it is a monochrome multifunctional product, the bizhub 20 can process colour scans.
The small and light-weight multifunctional bizhub 20 competently handles all daily office tasks.
The bizhub 20P features handy dimensions and a very light-weight design. This makes it an ideal asset for the personal workplace.
