bizhub PRO 951 INTRO/BENEFITS 2/3
Reliable productivity
Helping you achieve consistent run lengths and meeting
tight schedules with ease, helping you grow your business
and letting you relax about the future: The key for your
success is the bizhub PRO 951. As your robust production
stepping stone to steady profitability, it delivers the kind
of dependability in productivity, which gives you and your
customers ease of mind. With output rated at 95 A4 pages
per minute (ppm), and an impressive A3 speed of 55 ppm,
this unit delivers maximised performance combined with
long-term production security for entry-level digital printing,
also thanks to tools like CS Remote Care.
Outstanding print quality
Stand out from the competition in the market place and
take advantage of new business opportunities with existing
customers thanks to amazing quality! Konica Minolta’s
in-depth technologies provide this even at the entry-level to
black and white production printing. Simitri® HD polymerised
toner for example guarantees high precision output of text
and lines, produced using a 1,200 x 1,200 dpi LED print
head for reproductive consistency. The Tone Curve Utility
tool provides operators with complete control and flexible
optimisation of each and every print job. It is these great
features, which work with you and for you to deliver the
best print output results and form the basis for long-term
customer satisfaction.
Flexible finishing
Creating new print applications, providing new service
opportunities, plus extreme cost savings for greater profits
from higher margins – these are the key aspects you benefit
from with the bizhub PRO 951. An extensive variety of inline
finishing options, including stapling and automatic ring
binding. The print quality is further enhanced by remarkable
media flexibility (such as 300 gsm in duplex printing and
optional 350 gsm from the PFU trays). All options are
available in a modular concept that allows your system to
be individually tailored to match your specifications. The
bizhub PRO 951 resets the benchmark for flexibility.
Versatile operation
The bizhub PRO 951 gives you high levels of convenience,
maximising ease of use and helping you to reduce not
only labour but also hidden costs with intelligent choices
in the implementation of software solutions. A range of
interfaces for example provides full integration into existing
data networks to generate data for detailed cost centre
accounting; or integration into a workflow solution for
efficient queue management. This unit is equipped with all
the competences needed to adapt and respond perfectly to
today’s demands.
bizhub PRO 951
The bizhub PRO 951 delivers success in print thanks
to a wide choice of unique proprietary technologies
which together ensure high definition images as the
basis for top quality printouts. The image quality is
truly consistent from the very first to the very last
page, and from print job to print job. It is the ultimate
guarantee of professional results.
bizhub PRO 951 TECHNOLOGY 4/5
1,200 x 1,200 dpi LED print head
The bizhub PRO 951 achieves two-way 1,200 dpi print
resolution thanks to the implementation of a state-of-theart LED print head (LPH). This technology improves the
reproducibility of even small fonts, while the high number
of screen raster lines effectively smoothes the reproduction
of half tones.
Simitri® HD toner
Simitri® HD toner is a Konica Minolta in-house
development, which uses polymerised processing
techniques to produce smaller, more consistently
shaped particles to enhance the printing resolution. This
polymerised toner also has a lower fixing temperature and
helps reduce paper curl. And because fixing is oil-free,
the result is a natural looking gloss with reduced glare
producing an output of quality that rivals offset printing.
The toner material recipe contains around 10% biomass
helping to reduce the environmental impact.
User-defined screen setting‘s
and Tone Curve Utility
The introduction of pre-defined setting masks (two types
with three patterns each) plus a choice of dot screen
settings allow users to select the best screen for each
specific print job. The print station also comes with a
standard controller plus the proprietary Tone Curve Utility
tool to help adjust and correct print data to better match
customer specifications. These techniques allow for
adjustment of image brightness and contrast over a wide
range without affecting text to still deliver 100% density.
The system allows individual customer settings to be
stored and recalled as and when needed.
For jobs that involve the reproduction of colour documents
in black and white, the CIE colour space allows the operator
to achieve highly accurate colour conversion by precise grey
scale calibration and controlled collapse of shadowed areas.
Schedule management
The schedule management application implemented
in the bizhub PRO 951 gives operators an overview of
information needed to best handle all queued print jobs.
The display includes all current jobs plus helpful detailed
information including what kind of paper in use and
displays a timeline to indicate capacities. The operator can
access updated and detailed overviews of suspended and
reserved jobs.
Belt transfer system
The bizhub PRO 951 is equipped with the state-of-the-art
belt transfer system designed from scratch to improve
paper feeding as well as the quality of the transferred
images. The full-area adherence of the paper to the belt
eliminates any gaps and ensures that the toner is applied
to the paper consistently and absolutely evenly.
bizhub PRO 951
The production print market is undergoing significant changes today. Accelerated by the recent economic
downturn, the number of printing businesses is in decline, total print volume is decreasing and an
increasing number of print applications are being transferred to electronic media.
Printing companies know that they need to grow their print business, increase profit margins and
generate new revenues. To support customers in achieving this, Konica Minolta Business Solutions has
launched Digital1234; a comprehensive business development program that puts the focus upon the
customer’s needs to enable his business.
The key question is ‘How can we enable your business today?’ The solution to most business challenges can
simply be answered with “by saving you money, increasing your profit, adding new services and making you
more productive.” The Digital1234 business building program has been designed for simplicity and encourages
businesses to take an opportunity-based approach – to start driving a better business. Using four practical
steps the customer is guided and coached on how to identify, assess, justify and implement new business
The basic concept features these four steps, giving advice through the business process: Why should I invest
in this opportunity? How can I fit this into my existing business? Who has experienced it and can tell me about
it? What steps should I take to be successful with this new opportunity?
Starting with “why”, Digital1234 uses simple opportunity-based papers written by credible industry partners,
who explore each business opportunity. The second step focuses upon the “how”, by using simple
assessment questions set by a panel of international and independent business experts. The third step, the
“who”, describes the story behind the business success while the fourth step provides business resources
for download to help customers prosper in their business, such as business focused implementation guides
written by industry consultants.

Web to print
– In the past all print jobs were
submitted and processed
– With the rise of Internet usage,
most printer businesses have
recognised the value to offer
customers a web portal where
they can submit their print jobs.
– Web submission includes:
uploading the print data, getting
a price quote, getting a proof,
tracking information on the status
of the print job, automatic link to
payment and administration, etc.
– Web to print enables your
company to be online 24/7, to
automate the print job submission
process, improve efficiency,
eliminate manual elements in the
job submission process.
Variable data printing
– What is most unique about digital printing?
– You can customise every page within one print run and thus create a unique, targeted and relevant message for each recipient.
– This is called “Variable Data Printing” (or VDP).
– Direct Mail can be more personal:
– We can customise by name and address
– This is the unique value proposition with
digital printing that cannot be achieved
with traditional printing.
– Studies have shown that the more
personalised the message the more
effective it will be.
– On average personalised marketing
collateral lead to 31% greater returns
compared to general marketing materials.
– As a print provider you can charge more
for VDP jobs, and your customer gets a
better response per piece.
– More profit for you – more business for
your customer.

Paper catalogue
The paper catalogue is another feature of
the bizhub PRO 951 that complements the
device’s other outstanding capabilities to
maximise operational speed and efficiency. After
programming the paper catalogue just once, the

the paper type required for a specific job is stored.
When preparing production, the operator simply
selects the desired type of media from the paper
catalogue. The functionality includes the option
of allocating individual names to different types
of paper, like “Corporate Blue”. This is a way of
speeding up recognition and raises the benchmark
of user convenience even higher.

Reducing the maximum density
does not affect the text which
remains at 100% density.
There is no such thing as a simple production run – every production job has the expectation of professional handling of
the printed product during all stages of the production processes, from the printing itself to sophisticated finishing – and
as always, flexibility is the key!
