Unrivalled image quality
Leading media capabilities
n The
n The
image technology adopted for the bizhub
PRESS C8000 includes 1200 x 1200dpi x 8 bit full
colour resolution with smoothing for matchless
clarity and precision. Konica Minolta’s S.E.A.D II
technology and highly accurate laser beam
position raises reliability and durability.
n Besides low temperature fixing, the new
third-generation Simitri® HD+ polymerised
toner features enhanced heavy paper productivity
and adds to the dramatically improved image
quality.
Outstanding productivity
n The
high print speed of up to 80 A4 pages per
minute ensures the timely completion of any
production run. Short-run and higher volume
print jobs can be produced on schedule; and
even the tightest deadline is kept.
n The fast turnaround times of the bizhub PRESS
C8000 creates new business opportunities and
brings attractive revenue from the production of
customised communications and other short-run
digital colour jobs within tight deadlines.
n Commercial printers gain important flexibility
with ORUM (Operator Replaceable Unit
Management) that keeps standstills to a minimum
and avoids interruptions at peak production times,
considerably raising the overall productivity of the
entire business.
n With the bizhub PRESS C8000, the hidden costs
for preparation, warehousing, and distribution are
considerably reduced, for more economic and
profitable short-run printing. This makes Konica
Minolta’s digital colour press an ideal choice as a
production-capable printer and the perfect entry
tool for an easy start in digital production printing.
bizhub PRESS C8000 makes an impression
with a sophisticated media management, presently
unmatched by competitive machines in this class.
Paper from 64 to 350 gsm can be processed, with
duplex printing possible on up to 300 gsm.
n A unique humidification option can be equipped
to elevate the moisture content in the paper and
therefore prevents curling. The impressive results
are crisp, clean, and beautifully defined prints.

The future of graphic arts:
Premier quality
and consistency
The bizhub PRESS C8000 has been equipped with a number of unique digital imaging technologies that offer
outstanding and consistent quality. It also offers numerous other state-of-the-art technologies developed by
Konica Minolta to further support this.
n The bizhub PRESS C8000’s advanced colour
management tools ensure consistent, high
definition colour images for a vibrant print quality
that complements offset. This image quality is
consistent, from job to job, operator to operator,
machine to machine, and delivers professional
results that are sure to satisfy even the most
discerning customer.
n Commercial printers have the benefit of a true
differentiator with which they can really exceed their
customers’ expectations and increase their business
opportunities. The bizhub PRESS C8000 makes it
easy to differentiate one’s business with enhanced
quality, greater creativity and speed of delivery.
Conventional toner
n
Automated colour management tools promises
increased productivity: The bizhub PRESS C8000
streamlines workflows with online calibration that
is completely hands-free. This frees operators to
focus on other work that may be more demanding.
S.E.A.D. II
The bizhub PRESS C8000 features Konica Minolta’s
very own, second generation advanced colour
processing technology. S.E.A.D 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 includes these important capabilities:
1,200 x 1,200 dpi x 8 bit print resolution
The impressive print resolution on the bizhub
PRESS C8000 reproduces finest characters and
thinnest lines to perfection. In combination with
proprietary Simitri® HD toner, this produces an
almost offset-like printing quality.
n FM screen technology
Also thanks to the 1,200 dpi resolution, the bizhub
PRESS C8000 provides additional screens for
higher quality prints, enabling smoother and more
realistic image reproductions that are a perfect
match to print data. A first on the bizhub PRESS
C8000, the frequency Modulated (FM) screen
technology ensures smooth moiré and jagged
free images.
n ITbit technology
Always striving to achieve the very best results
for any type of image or text, Konica Minolta
now applies its proprietary Image Tag bit (IT bit)
technology in the new range of presses. This
unique process improves quality of text, helping
to sharpen frayed edges in halftone printing. The
benefits are obvious especially in outline, reversed
or slim text.
n
Image stability
A newly developed short interval stability control
monitors image consistency on the bizhub
PRESS C8000 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.
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 the
enhanced efficiency, as they no longer need to go
through the time-consuming process of producing
test patterns.
Simitri® HD+
The bizhub PRESS C8000 utilises Konica Minolta’s
third-generation Simitri® HD polymerised toner
for enhanced image quality. Thanks to lower fusing
temperature, the range of supported media has
been considerably extended by higher paper weights
and paper curling has been virtually eliminated.
Skew detection
Thanks to a skew detection system that controls the
skew amount after the leading edge of the paper
has been fed, the bizhub PRESS C8000 produces
prints with highest accuracy.

capabilities facilitate the production of a wider variety of jobs on more print substrates – altogether a performance
that sets a true benchmark.
n Equipped with a robust print engine that delivers
up to 80 ppm, Konica Minolta’s digital colour
press excels with shortest turnaround times
whatever job is processed, and handles monthly
volumes of around 500,000 prints with ease.
n The flexibility to produce a wide variety of print
products on the broadest range of both coated

impresses with advanced inline finishing capabilities
that include stacking, booklet making and even
perfect binding. Offering complete flexibility, the
modular system architecture allows the user to
easily upgrade and improve functionality, just as the
growing printing business needs.
n Konica Minolta’s sophisticated media and
finishing capabilities enable printers to expand
their offerings and extend their customer base,
maximising profits and ensuring a quick return
on investment.
Special productivity features
n The
bizhub PRESS C8000 is the first colour printer
to adopt Konica Minolta’s air suction belt paper
feed system for highly accurate feeding of a wide
range of substrates.
n Two paper feed units with air suction belt feeding
mechanism can be connected together giving an
impressive input capacity of up to 10,760 sheets.
n To satisfy the diverse requirements of the most
varied professional printing environments, the
bizhub PRESS C8000 can be equipped with three
different controllers all offering fast processing of
colour jobs:
• The external EFI controller IC-306 is the perfect
all-round player.
• The external CREO Controller IC-307 is the perfect
solution for VDP applications (Creo VPS) and an
ideal choice for hybrid prepress workflows.
• The embedded Konica Minolta Controller IC-601
offers affordable colour management as well
as seamless integration with a wide range of
Konica Minolta applications.
Extensive media support
Paper from 64 to 350 gsm is processed, from all
PFU trays handling the maximum paperweight.
Duplex printing is possible on up to 300 gsm paper.
n The C8000 offers automatic curl correction with
two paper decurling mechanisms: A standard
mechanical decurler reduces paper curl when
the paper goes through its zig-zag mechanism.
Where required the system performance can be
enhanced with a unique optional humidification
decurler that elevates the moisture content in the
paper and therefore eliminates curling.
