Press release Konica Minolta launches new bizhub 25e Langenhagen, 1 February 2013 Konica Minolta starts the year 2013 by launching a new A4 multifunctional printer (MFP), the bizhub 25e, in February. This black-and-white MFP is designed as a central communication hub for small to medium sized workgroups. The bizhub 25e is a reliable, easy to use, and compact A4 blackand-white device for all office requirements including copying, printing, scanning, and faxing.

Due to its standard full multifunctionality and network capability, the bizhub 25e offers a range of advantages for optimised workflows. While on the one hand efficiency will improve, on the other hand cost savings could be realised. In addition, the compact bizhub 25e is easy to use across all of its functions. The convenient functionality is supported by a comfortable 5,7-Zoll touchscreen display with a well structured, self-explanatory menu bar that can be individually adapted; for example, with clever functions like the ID card copy. Another advantage of the bizhub 25e is its flexible paper handling and high paper holding capacity. It has a maximum paper input capacity of 2,100 sheets with up to five different paper trays. For this reason paper needs to be refilled quite infrequently. Furthermore, different print media such as standard paper, heavyweight paper, and envelopes can be stored in the system at the same time. The bizhub 25e also benefits from a smart paper output as it has an additional collection tray next to the standard one. This could be dedicated solely to incoming faxes so that they can be separated from prints and copies, thereby preventing output chaos. Moreover, the Secure Print function enables printing of confidential documents as the print job only starts after the user enters a password at the display screen of the MFP. In this way a well-regulated paper output is guaranteed.


Some other features complement the new MFP of Konica Minolta. The versatile scanning functionality enables colour scanning, as well as convenient distribution of documents via Scan-to-eMail/SMB/FTP/USB and TWAIN-Scan. An easy-to-use duplex feeder saves valuable time, and is completed by simple digitisation of documents. “The new bizhub 25e is a really flexible and efficient MFP. The combination of essential office requirements in one device, combined with easy-to-understand functionality and operation is really what customers need�, comments Stefan Herrmann, Product Manager Office Printing at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH.
