COLOUR PRODUCTION PRINTING SYSTEM
EASY ENTRY INTO EFFICIENT DIGITAL PRINTING The bizhub PRO C754 gives you an easy start into economic entry-level colour printing and ensures your growth – just what you need to persist in today’s competitive print market. As a commercial printer, you need to be well prepared for the future. In times of dramatic market changes, you need to work hard to keep your customers. With mobile communications and online ordering, printing is no longer purely a local business – it is therefore essential for you to diversify with print products that go beyond the standard range, and to achieve an easy entry into digital print production. In today’s world of multimedia communications, colour is the key to success! However, when considering digital colour production, you need to offer the highest print quality, not only for colour but for the complete printing range. The consistency and reliability of your output must be first class and you place a high priority on tools to easily control and maintain the output quality. At the same time, the pressure of fulfilment is very high for you as a commercial printer: you have to stick to the tightest deadlines. This is why it is vitally important for you to have a system on hand that secures fastest turnaround times. As individual jobs are decreasing in volume, you need an efficient alternative for short run printing that only requires a minimum of manual intervention. And it also goes without saying that you want to reduce standstill times to a minimum. If these are your requirements, don’t hesitate to take a closer look at the bizhub PRO C754. You will most likely find that it can do more for you than you ever thought possible!

bizhub PRO C754 TECHNOLOGY
The bizhub PRO C754 features the latest in Konica Minoltaâ€™s very own, advanced colour processing technology. Innovations like S.E.A.D., ITbit technology, ARDS, SimitriÂŽ HD polymerised toner provide an unbeatable combination of outstanding quality and smooth processing, ensuring perfect results and highest reliability.
bizhub PRO C754 5
S.E.A.D. As proprietary Konica Minolta technology, S.E.A.D. stands for “Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Process” and combines various technical innovations to guarantee impeccable colour reproduction at top speed. Konica Minolta’s advanced colour processing technology includes these important capabilities: – 600 x 1,800 dpi x 6 bit print resolution With the physical print resolution of 600 x 1,800 dpi and continuous tone printing of 6 bit, bizhub PRO C754 offers high-quality output for images and graphics, and smooth colour gradation. For the extra support of fine line reproduction and the very small characters in maps and similar documents, for example, the bizhub PRO C754 can be switched to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi for precision printing. – Screen technology Depending on the different image objects on one page – photos, graphics and text – bizhub PRO C754 automatically applies the best print screening to ensure smooth, even or sharp reproduction for a perfect match of the print data. – ITbit technology Outline processing improves the appearance of characters by thinning them so they do not appear fat. Contour processing helps to reproduce white characters on backgrounds with ideal proportions and reduces jagged edges of half-tone characters. – Image stability Short-interval stability control monitors image consistency on the bizhub PRO C754 during continuous printing without affecting performance. Corrections are fully automatic and improve the stability of the image quality, while the whole process considerably enhances production efficiency. To avoid production interruptions, the stability system analyses incoming print jobs and carries out stabilisation at the start or at the end of the print run. – Retention and stability In addition to internal monitoring, the system also checks for ambient changes to temperature and humidity as these might influence the print quality. The bizhub PRO C754 automatically adapts to any changes that are detected and thus keeps its stability over the complete print run.
ARDS – Auto Refining Developer System The innovative ARDS technology ensures a consistently high image quality while maximising consumables yield. It regularly refreshes the consumables inside the bizhub PRO C754, which increases the lifetime and improves the black and white image quality. As a result, this intelligent system supports a stable image quality over the long term, while at the same time making black and white printing more economical.
Simitri® HD polymerised toner An essential requirement in production printing, the bizhub PRO C754 delivers a superior colour image quality as well as impressive black density with their unique Simitri® HD polymerised toner. Simitri® HD also ensures unparalleled colour image stability and with its reduced fusing temperature supports a truly impressive range of media.
