Series 7 for all mankind – Monochrome wide format printers from Konica Minolta
Langenhagen, Germany, April 2012
Konica Minolta has expanded its monochrome wide format portfolio to include three new multifunctional systems: the KIP 7700, the KIP 7900 and the KIP 7100. Together with the recently introduced KIP C7800 wide format colour printer and the existing KIP 700m monochrome device, they constitute a portfolio that covers every wide format market need. Print service providers, teams of designers and users with varying requirements will all want to take a closer look at these new Series 7 wide format multifunctionals.
Modular, integrated and expandable, the KIP 7700 and KIP 7900 multifunctional wide format printing systems deliver ultimate versatility, advanced technology and superior image quality as well as reliable performance. Used either as monochrome network printers or via USB, the KIP 7700 and KIP 7900 have printing speeds of five A0 and seven A0 prints per minute respectively, targeting monthly print volumes of up to 12,000 (KIP 7700) and up to 15,000 (KIP 7900) prints.
Both systems offer a generous media capacity consisting of four quick-change media decks, each featuring 150 metres of roll capacity, plus an integrated bypass sheet feeder. The KIP 7700 and KIP 7900 are available in a variety of system configurations to meet specific production demands. Upgrades include scanning functionality, stacker and an online folder, and finishing is always performed at full engine speed. Low production costs, superior usability and a small footprint further extend the feature list of the KIP 7700/7900.
Another new monochrome multifunctional Konica Minolta wide format printer is the KIP 7100. The all-in-one system provides printing, copying and colour scanning functionality. Front access to all major functions leverages operational convenience. The just one square metre footprint guarantees high productivity even in small offices. The system loads up to two rolls and offers a cut sheet cassette for better versatility and media flexibility. The KIP 7100’s advanced monochrome LED printing technology is very economical and delivers affordable wide format prints. Finishing options include stacking and folding.
The KIP 7100’s expandability is the key to its all-round capability and makes it suitable for decentralised and centralised environments. Thus, it delivers the best features of both worlds in providing walk-up convenience – for example through a USB port – and production printing capabilities.
The KIP 7700/7900 and KIP 7100 monochrome systems provide superior usability in the form of a large on-board colour LCD touch panel. Even personnel without special training will know how to handle the printers immediately. All major functions and controls are conveniently available at users’ fingertips.
All KIP 7 series systems feature IPS 7.4, a comprehensive new software suite including the KIP Cost Review Application for easy cost management and accounting. All systems also offer PC and web-based viewing and printing of documents. In addition, KIP Cloud Printing provides direct email-based accessibility that does not require intermediate servers, allowing total document privacy and security for printing from any connected device. Certified drivers for Windows and AutoCAD deliver optimal compatibility.
"With the KIP 7700/7900 and the KIP 7100 we have further updated our wide format portfolio with extremely versatile monochrome systems," says Anja Schappert, Product Manager, Wide Format Solutions, at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. "Together with the recently introduced KIP C7800 wide format colour printer and our existing KIP 700m monochrome printer, these systems team up to be the most complete selection for technical environments we have ever been able to offer."
