Konica Minolta has won three BLI (Buyers Laboratory LLC) 2015 BLI PRO Awards, marking the third consecutive year in which the company has claimed a share of the honours.
BLI stands tall as one of the world's leading independent provider of analytical information and services to the document imaging industry.
Konica Minolta’s bizjub PRESS 1052 won Outstanding Monochrome Light-to Mid-Volume Production Device thanks to its performance, five-star rating for productivity and media-handling capabilities.
“It offers an excellent blend of everything that’s most important in monochrome production environments,” says Pete Emory, director of Laboratory Testing, BLI.
“Not only is it highly productive, it offers excellent media-handling capabilities and its input and output paper capacities are so high that it can run for about eight hours before requiring operator attention.”
Konica Minolta’s bizhub PRESS C1100 also proved a strong competitor and was awarded a 2015 BLI PRO award as Outstanding Colour Mid-Volume Production Device.
“Usually we see models that excel in one or two areas, but fall short in others,” adds David Sweetnam, head of BLI’s European Research and Lab Services.
“The bizhub PRESS C1100’s colour consistency is among the best BLI has seen, being one of just a few production units to earn BLI’s highest five-star rating for colour consistency.”
Standout paper handling, strong productivity and a wide range of adjustments to help achieve optimum image quality earned the tandem-engine Konica Minolta’s bizhub PRESS 2250P BLI’s 2015 PRO award for Outstanding Monochrome Mid-to-High Volume Production Device.
“The BLI results have clearly shown that Konica Minolta identifies with our customers and has developed our Production Print Systems to bring distinguished value to print production,” adds Warwick Beban, CEO of Konica Minolta, New Zealand.
“To be awarded three Production Print Awards for 2015 indicates that Konica Minolta’s research and development is always striving to reach higher levels of productivity and reliability with exceptional value for the benefit of print suppliers in the market.”
