technology today
The bizhub PRO C6501 combines a fast colour speed, impressive media flexibility and superb output quality
with durability and reliability. By offering sustainable, reasonable running costs Konica Minolta’s high-speed
colour production system guarantees competitiveness and represents an economically viable printing
solution for environments that operate on a limited budget but need to produce perfect, high-quality results.
Unique colour processing technology
The bizhub PRO C6501 provides Konica Minolta’s
advanced colour processing technology. S.E.A.D.,
which stands for „Screen-Enhancing Active Digital
Process“, makes available a range of technical
innovations that enable the bizhub PRO C6501’s
exceptional colour reproduction at such high speed.
Impressive media flexibility
Paper processing in the bizhub PRO C6501 is fast and
ultra-smooth. Thanks to Konica Minolta’s
“air-assist” paper feeding technology the media
flexibility of this colour production system is extensive
and covers a wide range of substrates, such
as paper weights of up to 300 gsm, coated paper, card
and digital offset stock.
n A newly applied unique screening method provides an improved image quality with considerably
smoother backgrounds. Also new Konica Minolta’s
ITbit (Image Tag bit) technology much enhances
halftone printing, showing visible improvements in
particular for outlines, reversed and slim text.
n The high speed and amazing precision of Konica
Minolta’s fast colour engine is made possible by
an innovative dual-beam laser unit. And at the core
of the bizhub PRO C6501 are three HI-PER ASICs
(high-performance image processing applicationspecific integrated circuits) – these little chips contain
many of the proprietary Konica Minolta technologies
essential for this system’s outstanding performance.
With up to 4,250 pages input capacity the bizhub PRO
C6501 is suitably equipped even for long
print runs and continuous production. Advanced features like the mixplex and mixmedia functionality guarantee professional output also of complex
and highly individual print jobs. Additionally the optional large-capacity paper magazine can be equipped with
a heating unit (optional) that dries paper stock before
it’s used, yet again increasing the system’s feeding reliability.
The bizhub PRO C6501 is comprehensively equipped
to ensure highest levels of productivity while minimising manual interventions and production interruptions.
An array of features and functionalities increases user
convenience and facilitates the fast processing of jobs:
n With Konica Minolta’s smart colour production
system short-run printing is fast and keeping short
turnaround times easy! Its output capacity of up to
65 pages per minute in both full colour and b/w,
and its paper and toner refill on-the-fly functionality
make the bizhub PRO C6501 ideal for heavy-duty
production and average monthly output volumes of
50,000 pages or more.
n Ease of use is just one of the bizhub PRO C6501’s
many attractive assets. User convenience, fast and
easy handling and no-nonsense operation were
top development priorities for Konica Minolta’s colour
production system. 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 production is
absolute precision: The bizhub PRO C6501 meets
this challenge with a back-to-front and page-to-page
registration that comes very close to offset printing
results. This brings noticeable benefits especially
for the production of booklets and brochures –
only two of the more complex jobs the bizhub
PRO C6501 takes in its stride!
n Dependability is another issue that has top priority
for professionals – and the bizhub PRO C6501 has
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 C6501 is in the field. With constant
analysis of the system performance CS Remote
Care enables automated reporting and preventive
maintenance, effectively assuring maximum system

In-line finishing
for professionals
The superior quality of printed output is important,
but so is the form and feel of the complete
document. To automate the finishing process and
enable the one-stop production of sophisticated,
high-impact print products, Konica Minolta makes
available a choice of in-line finishing functions
that further enhance the capabilities of the
bizhub PRO C6501.
n Upgrading the bizhub PRO C6501 with the booklet
finisher will automate the production of booklets and
brochures, providing a convenient and productive
in-line half-fold and saddle-stitching functionality.
Booklets can consist of up to 20 sheets, allowing a
content of max. 80 pages.
n Both the booklet finisher and the staple finisher
offer multi-position stapling for up to 50
sheets per stapled set as part of their versatile
n Extra flexibility is included with a letter-folding function for sets of max. 3 sheets, especially
convenient for the automatic
production of mailings.
n In addition, in-line punching of 2 or 4 holes is
available as an optional upgrade to the booklet and
the staple finisher.
n A post inserter automates the process of inserting
pre-printed covers into documents that have
been printed on the bizhub PRO C6501. Also
available for both finishers, this option further
enhances the scope of applications possible with
Konica Minolta‘s smart colour production system.
With this comprehensive choice of finishing features
the bizhub PRO C6501 is perfectly equipped for the
production of booklets, brochures, manuals, reports,
mailings and other documentation.
