won’t go wrong choosing either one of Konica
Minolta’s dependable digital colour presses.
No limits to
colour and quality
With a definite focus on fast colour and superior quality, Konica Minolta integrated advanced technology into
the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000, promising to not just keep things running but taking reliability to encompass an
exceptional image quality as well as highest productivity.
Compact competence and reliability
Powerful choice of controllers
Dependability is a fundamental issue for print
providers, CRDs and advertising professionals alike.

and an ideal choice for hybrid prepress workflows.
Proprietary Creo Colour Server technology
supports the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000 as robust
workflow solutions with outstanding print quality
and exceptional productivity
n The embedded Konica Minolta controller IC-601
offers affordable colour management as well as
seamless integration with a wide range of Konica
Minolta applications. The highlight of the IC-601
is its complete implementation into the bizhub

As an attractive asset, the bizhub PRO C6000 and
PRO C7000 are amazingly compact for devices in
their class. To many their remarkably small footprint
will be a decisive advantage, especially if either
colour press is to be installed in a crowded print
room or an advertising agency where space is at
a premium. Nevertheless their sturdy and robust
construction always ensures a continuous and
absolutely dependable performance.

Colour processing
technologies
The bizhub PRO C6000/C7000 feature the latest in Konica Minolta’s very own, advanced colour processing
technology. Innovations like S.E.A.D. II, ITbit technology, CRS, Simitri® HD polymerised toner and Konica Minolta’s
“air-assist” paper feeding technology provide an unbeatable com­bination of outstanding quality and smooth
processing, ensuring perfect results and highest reliability.
S.E.A.D. II
Developed by Konica Minolta, S.E.A.D. II stands for
„Screen-Enhancing Active Digital Process“ and combines an array of technical innovations to guarantee
truly exceptional colour reproduction at top speed.
S.E.A.D. II represents the second generation of
Konica Minolta’s advanced colour processing technology and includes these important capabilities:
1,200 x 1,200 dpi x 8 bit print resolution
The impressive print resolution on the bizhub
PRO C6000/C7000 reproduces finest characters
and thinnest lines to perfection. In combination
with proprietary Simitri HD toner, this results in an
almost offset-like print quality.
n FM screen technology
Also thanks to the excellent resolution of 1,200dpi,
the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000 provide additional
screens for higher quality prints, enabling smoother and more realistic image reproductions that are
a perfect match to print data. The newly adopted
Frequency Modulated (FM) screen technology
ensures smooth moiré- and jagged-free images.
n
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
A newly developed short interval stability control
monitors image consistency on the bizhub
PRO C6000/C7000 during continuous printing.
Corrections are fully automatic and improve the
stability of the image quality, while the whole process considerably enhances production efficiency.
Automated colour management tools promise
increased productivity: The bizhub PRO C6000/
C7000 streamline workflows with calibration that
is completely hands-free, and allows operators to
focus fully on producing more outstanding quality
jobs in less time.
n Density control
A newly developed gradation correction function
meets the varied characteristics of different media
by correcting the gradations according to the
paper used. Key operators benefit from enhanced
efficiency, as they no longer need to go through
the time-consuming process of producing test
patterns.
n Colour Retention and Stability (CRS)
The exclusive CRS technology constantly monitors
the status of the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000.
Receiving continuous feedback about changes
in the print environment and the engine, CRS
immediately makes the necessary adjustments to
always maintain highest print quality.
n
Simitri® HD polymerised toner
An essential requirement in production printing,
the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000 deliver a superior
colour image quality as well as impressive black
density with its unique Simitri® HD polymerised
toner. Simitri® HD also ensures an unparalleled
colour image quality and with its reduced fusing
temperature supports a truly impressive range of
media.
n Ultra-smooth paper processing
The bizhub PRO C6000/C7000 feature fast and
ultra-smooth paper processing: Where required,
an optional heating unit inside the paper magazine
dries paper stock before printing. Konica Minolta’s
“air-assist” paper feeding technology separates
sheets and feeds them individually – a process
that double-feed detection sensors make even
more reliable! Thanks to an innovative printing and
developing process, fusing temperatures are low,
resulting in a considerable increase in media flexibility. Each individual print is cooled and de-curled
before output giving optimum results.

Professional
performance
The bizhub PRO C6000 and bizhub PRO C7000 are
comprehensively equipped to ensure top performance
and productivity while minimising manual interventions.
An array of features and functionalities increases
user convenience and facilitates the fast processing
of jobs.
n Ease of use is just one of the bizhub PRO C6000
and bizhub PRO C7000’s many attractive assets.
User convenience, fast and easy handling and
no-nonsense operation were top development priorities for Konica Minolta’s digital colour presses.
User operation and programming for example are
straightforward and intuitive via the large full-colour
operator panel that provides clear and easy access
to all functions.
n One precondition for faultless print results is absolute
precision: The bizhub PRO C6000 and bizhub
PRO C7000 meet this challenge with a back-to-front
and page-to-page registration that comes very close
to offset printing. This brings noticeable benefits
especially for booklets and brochures – only two of
the more complex job that the bizhub PRO C6000
and bizhub PRO C7000 take in their stride!
n Dependability is another important issue for professionals – and the bizhub PRO C6000 and bizhub
PRO C7000 have been designed with reliability in
mind. Beyond that Konica Minolta’s remote diagnostics system CS Remote Care provides pro-active
support once the bizhub PRO C6000 and bizhub
PRO C7000 are in the field. With constant analysis
of the system performance CS Remote Care enables
automated reporting and preventive maintenance,
effectively assuring maximum system uptime.
Impressive media flexibility
Paper processing in the bizhub PRO C6000/
C7000 is fast and ultra-smooth. Thanks to
Konica Minolta’s “air-assist” paper feeding
technology their media flexibility is extensive
and covers a wide range of substrates, incl.
up to 300 gsm paper, coated paper, card and
digital offset stock. With up to 7,500 pages
input capacity these systems easily handle
long print runs. Advanced features like mixplex
and mixmedia guarantee professional results
also for complex print jobs.
Eco-friendly technology
Konica Minolta is committed to protecting the
environment and assesses the environmental
impact of its products at each stage of the
product lifecycle, from raw material and parts
procurement to manufacture, transportation,
sale, use, reuse, recycling and disposal. Also in
the bizhub PRO C6000/C7000, advanced ecotechnologies help minimize the ecological impact
of these systems. Konica Minolta’s proprietary
polymerised toner Simitri® HD for example saves
energy as it enables considerably lower fusing
temperatures. And the production of Simitri® HD
generates around 40% less in CO2 emissions
than toner produced by conventional pulverisation.
At the same time, biomass is an important
ingredient in Simitri® HD toner and answers the
essential requirements of the modern,
CO2-conscious society.
