bizhub PRESS 1052
bizhub PRESS 1250
The bizhub PRESS 1250 and bizhub PRESS 1052
combine superior strength, high-resolution image quality
and simple operation with the versatile paper handling and
finishing capabilities you need for maximum flexibility. With
output speeds up to 125 ppm, the bizhub PRESS 1250 is
built for a heavy-duty production cycle of up to 3,000,000
impressions per month. The bizhub PRESS 1052 gives you
up to 105 ppm output speed with a workhorse monthly
duty cycle of 2,000,000 impressions. And both models
feature tandem printing capability, to double your output
speed for big jobs on tight deadlines.
Enhanced durability of parts and materials increase
reliability and can significantly reduce total cost of
ownership. High-capacity paper and toner supplies
give you hands-off productivity to reduce labor cost.
And built-in print control provides ultra-fast job handling,
simple command interface and powerful productivity
benefits with no increase in overall footprint, saving
space on your production floor.
Simitri® HD toner: higher quality, with lower
impact on the environment.
At the heart of bizhub PRESS performance is Konica
Minolta’s exclusive Simitri® HD Polymerized Toner,
using smaller and more consistently shaped particles to
reproduce fine detail with greater precision.
CIE color
processing performs
color conversion
based on CIE color
space, improving
the reproduction
of gradations
in photographs
and graphics.
Simitri toner’s oil-less fixing produces a clean, naturallooking finish with reduced glare to achieve image quality
rivaling the output of offset printers costing far more – a
real production advantage in today’s competitive print
marketplace. A belt transfer system maintains accurate
edge-to-edge toner transfer, ensuring accurate image
reproduction over the entire page.
The low-temperature fusing characteristic of Simitri toner
minimizes paper curls or waviness, controlling paper shifts
during stapling and folding for effective use of a wider
range of substrates. In addition, Simitri toner is produced
using biomass plant-based materials to save energy and
reduce pollution – setting the pace in responsible print
production technology for more than a decade.
Images to rival offset – at a fraction of the cost.
The design of the bizhub PRESS 1250 and 1052
refines and updates the leadership digital technology
that makes Konica Minolta so valuable to production
print professionals.
Improved photoconductor design features crosslinked
resins to resist scratches and surface roughness that
might compromise image quality. Reduced halftone noise
keeps graphics and photos crisp and clean, with true
1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. A unique combination of
Image Density Control (IDC) and Toner Carrier Ratio (TCR)
sensors ensure consistent image density and overall
quality even over long press runs.
A High Coverage Mode is available for images with rich
black graphics or large-font text. Sophisticated LED
print head technology smoothes halftone images and
improves the reproduction of small-size fonts. Seven
selectable screen settings are available during printing,
to match the needs of any monochrome document – and
CIE color space conversion controls the “collapsing” of
colors to capture richer gradation and improve the B&W
reproduction of color images.
Green technologies to protect the environment.
Environmental protection is becoming a significant
concern for print professionals – and Konica Minolta
continues to lead the industry in green technologies
that reduce cost, save energy and promote simple,
hassle-free recycling.
Thin Film Core Shell
Along with energy-saving modes and low-temperature
fusing, the bizhub PRESS 1250/1052 automatically shuts
down power to circuits not directly required for current
operations. Konica Minolta cuts down on emissions,
minimizes pollutants and utilizes recycled materials
wherever possible in our manufacturing operations.
And our Eco Vision 2050 Program has set the ambitious
goal of reducing CO2 emissions 80% by the middle of
this century – cutting down on a greenhouse gas that
may contribute to global warming.
The Clean Planet Recycling program is also cost-free for
all Konica Minolta consumables, with preprinted labels
you can download from our website – and large cartons
or recycling pallets available for high-volume production
print applications. Please visit our
website to learn more about our
environmental initiatives and our
exclusive Clean Planet Program.­

unsurpassed paper handling and auto
finishing capabilities.
For productivity to meet tight deadlines, the bizhub PRESS 1250/1052
stand at the head of their class in versatile paper-handling capabilities and
advanced auto-finishing options. You can print on a wide range of thin to thick
substrates, including embossed paper and envelopes – and perform multiposition stapling, hole-punching, saddle-stitching, tri-folding, even produce
ring-bound and perfect-bound books inline. With all this power, both models
maintain a manageable footprint that saves space on your production floor.

Wide-ranging substrate capabilities with
improved technology.
Powerful finishing options for
increased productivity.
For years, Konica Minolta has been leading the way
in digital performance – but we never rest on past
achievements. The bizhub PRESS 1250/1052 incorporate
our latest innovations in paper handling, throughput
speed and finishing power to keep pace with your
busy job flow.
In finishing as in paper handling, Konica Minolta
bizhub PRESS equipment excels in scalable versatility.
Along with standard air-assist friction paper feeding,
both models can be equipped with an advanced Air
Suction Paper Feed Unit (PF-703) which “floats” paper by
blowing air to the front. The unique combination of sideair and front-air blowing removes dust and powder from
the paper surface more effectively, improves suction and
minimizes slippage for more reliable feed, and adjusts
automatically according to the type of paper in use.
Housed in the new RU-509 Relay Unit the optional
HM-102 Humidifier removes unwanted heat and static
electricity by reducing paper curl and humidifying
the paper as it passes through the system. The result
is greater feeding accuracy and more consistent output
under all environmental conditions.
You’ll have improved performance for a wide range of
substrates – from thin 40 gsm paper to heavyweight media
up to 350 gsm, with duplex capability up to 300 gsm in
all paper trays. The bizhub PRESS 1250 and 1052 also
accept paper sizes up to 12” x 18” sheets, for reproducing
oversized pages with borders and crop marks. You can
adjust density levels for embossed paper, increasing
developer and toner adhesion for superior reproduction.
You can even add an optional Envelope Fuser Unit (EF-102)
to handle monochrome printing on envelopes.
Standard paper capacity of 3,000 sheets can be
increased to 14,000 sheets with the addition of up to two
optional Paper Feeder Units, giving you the capacity to
handle long print-runs with less operator assistance.
Finished documents
from the PB-503
Perfect Binder are
stacked on this
cart for safe and
convenient transport
– while improving
efficiency and safety.
A compact, all-in-one Stapling Finisher (FS-532) can be
configured for advanced professional-grade or entrylevel production. In compact dimensions, it provides high
output speed, multi-position stapling, 4,500 maximum
unattended output paper capacity and throughput
capability for paper weights up to 350 gsm. It can also
be equipped with Saddle-Stitcher (SD-510), 2/3-Hole
Punch Kit (PK-522) and Post Inserter (PI-502) options to
handle your most common finishing needs. An improved
shift tray mechanism adjusts in width for shifted output
– and fine stacking and gripper functions improve the
consistency of printed output.
For even higher productivity, the bizhub PRESS 1250
and 1052 allow you to add finishing options to serve
specialized production needs. A Folding Unit (FD-503)
provides 6 different fold patterns as well as 2/3-hole
punching. A high-capacity Saddle-Stitch Unit (SD-506)
can handle up to 50 sheets for producing saddle-stitched
booklets up to 200 pages. A Perfect Binder Unit (PB-503)
provides inline glue binding of books up to 600 pages.
The GP-501 GBC Punching Unit features 7 different
user-replaceable die sets to meet a variety of document
punching requirements. The new GP-502 Inline Auto
Ring Binder with hole-punch and binding functions
produces bound books up to 200 sheets.
Finally, a Large Capacity Stacker (LS-505) can handle
up to 5,000 sheets, with rollaway cart for convenient
transport of printed output to offline finishing or shipping
locations – and two Stackers can be used in tandem with
your bizhub PRESS 1205/1052 for unattended printing
of up to 10,000 sheets in a single print run.
a winning formula for boosting
productivity and profit.
You’re in control every step of the way with the bizhub PRESS 1250/1052– with

standard built-in controllers. A large 15” on-board
touch-screen control panel makes walk-up operation
simple, even for personnel with minimal training. You
can preview documents as thumbnail images before you
print, to avoid time-wasting reprints if initial print settings
don’t meet your requirements. Graphic icons highlight
paper tray and output tray, for easy setup. And separate
command sequences for print, copy and scan functions
help avoid confusion to speed your workflow.
Job List, Job Ticket Editing, and Job Scheduling functions
are all available on-screen to keep jobs moving quickly
even when last-minute changes arrive. Job Memory,
Recall and Reserve capabilities enable you to print
and reprint quickly from memory without reloading data
or re-scanning originals. There’s even an on-screen
Paper Profile List to provide profiles for up to 256
types of paper.
PCL5e/PCL6 and Adobe PostScript 3 interpreters can
handle production needs in both Windows and Macintosh
environments. And a consistent control interface with
bizhub PRESS and bizhub PRO color equipment is a real
