7 Maximum storage of 14,000 sheets
With two 1,500-sheet standard paper trays and the
optional PF-702 and PF-703 Paper Feed Unit connected
in tandem, the bizhub PRO 1200/1051 has a maximum
capacity of 14,000* sheets. Because paper trays can be
refilled without interrupting output, large-volume jobs can
be processed efficiently.
8 Easy-access tray grip
All paper trays feature a universal design construction.
The easy-to-grip handles allow more convenient opening
for all users.
9 5,000-sheet stacking capability
with convenient dolly
The optional LS-505 Stacker with dolly can handle up
to 5,000 sheets*. Using two stackers in tandem, up to
10,000 sheets are always at the ready. After paper is
delivered from the stacker, it can be carried to the next
process as-is with the dolly. This paper delivery capacity
significantly improves work efficiency.
Reliable design prevents paper mis-feeding
and printing errors before they happen
10Air-suction paper feed mechanism
The optional PF-703 Paper Feed Unit utilises an airsuction paper feed unit that blows air from the sides and
front. The paper then adheres to the conveyance belt by
air suction. This reduces slipping caused by powder on
the sheets, and ensures greater stability for high-speed
output. The suction strength is automatically adjusted
depending on paper type for optimised handling.
11Multi-sheet detection sensor
Attached to the paper feed unit in the main body, the
ADF, the optional FD-503 Multi-fold Punch Unit and
the optional FA-501 PI-PFU Unit are multi-sheet paper
detection sensors that keep extra paper from being mixed
in with printed materials. This ultrasound sensor detects
sheets fed from all trays. When an extra sheet is found,
printing is automatically suspended to prevent printing
errors and speed troubleshooting.
Air separation
Air lifting
Transmission sensor
12Air-assist paper feed mechanism
The air-assist paper feed mechanism prevents coated
paper from sticking while being fed. Air is sent to stacks
of coated paper to facilitate paper handling and maintain
stable feeding. The feature is included in all main unit
trays, as well as the optional paper feed units.
Air suction
Detects space
Reception sensor
Image Quality
High image quality
bizhub PRO 1200/1051 delivers monochrome output quality that rivals offset
printing, producing consistent quality throughout high-volume jobs
1 Real 1,200 dpi resolution
Documents can be copied at a high-quality resolution of
up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, resulting in sharp, crisp lettering
and fine lines even at small font sizes, as well as smooth
gradations and sharp details for images and photos.
Additional smoothing processes during printing further
enhance the appearance of your output.
New Polymerised
Smaller uniform
particles for better
print quality
2 New Simitri HD Toner
Konica Minolta’s new Simitri HD toner uses smaller, more
consistently shaped particles, providing finer, straighter
lines and more even halftones with fewer variations in
density. Because it uses oil-less fixer, even solid blacks
are produced with a natural looking gloss and reduced
glare. The end result is beautiful image quality to rival that
of offset printers.
New Polymerised
Superior image stability ensures accurate,
high-quality reproduction
Developing roller
3 Improved D-Max
To achieve a greater image density, a new developer
is being used and the developer settings have been
improved. The electric charge between the drum and the
developer sleeve has been strengthened, improving the
developing quality. By raising the maximum image density
(D-max) density fluctuations during large-scale printing
have been minimised.
4 New TCR and IDC sensors
The bizhub PRO 1200/1051 uses Image Density Control
(IDC) sensor together with the newly developed Toner
Carrier Ratio (TCR) sensor to better regulate image
density. The TCR sensor controls toner density, while the
IDC sensor controls the rotation speed of the developer
sleeve. Compared to previous models, which only used
the IDC sensor, this new arrangement achieves better
prevention of toner spills and more consistent output
quality. This means that wide variations in density will be
reproduced consistently, even over long print runs.
This spacing has been optimised
for a stronger electric field and
improved developing quality
Advanced reproduction of fine text lines
5 Belt transfer system
The bizhub PRO 1200/1051 uses a belt transfer system
that improves the quality of paper feeding and images
being transferred. Using an electric charge, the gap
between the paper and the belt is eliminated. The
pressure of the belt ensures that toner is fixed without
unevenness for higher consistency.
Transfer roller
The belt pressure
eliminates gaps
against the drum
6 LPH (LED Print Head) writing system
The new LPH system employs an LED print head
with a beam diameter of only 30 microns, half the size
of previous models, making resolutions of 1,200 dpi
possible. This enables finer text quality and improved
image gradations.

Rod lens array
Rich, lifelike gradations and halftone image
High-quality double-sided printing
7 Tone Curve Utility
Using image shift and independent magnification
adjustment, high-quality registration between front and
back sides is possible. To eliminate small gaps between
the two sides, minute adjustments to horizontal and
vertical printing positions are automatically made.
The Tone Curve Utility is a standard part of the print
controller. This allows image brightness and contrast to be
adjusted to prevent blow-out of white or collapse of blacks.
No other software is required, making adjustments simple
and fast.
10Front and back registration
Advanced image position precision
CIE Color ON
8 CIE Colour Space
In cases where colour data is being used, CIE Colour
Space conversion enables the most accurate reproduction
in monochrome. This mode produces much richer
shadows, detailed highlights and smooth gradations.
*This reduces output speed 10-20%
9 Screen settings
New pre-setting screens (2 types in 3 patterns each)
and dot screens were developed for 1,200 dpi output,
optimised for images, text or mixed data.
11Paper skew sensor
The paper skew sensor prevents gaps in output that
can occur when a sheet of paper becomes momentarily
stuck or warped. When the amount of bend in the sheet
exceeds a pre-determined limit, printing automatically
stops to prevent later output from being affected.
