Konica Minolta launches the bizhub 558 series with state-of-the-art technology for a smarter office experience

| 16 januari 2017

In order to respond to the latest market trends and client needs in the area of office printing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH (Konica Minolta) is continuously updating its hardware and software portfolio. With the launch of the bizhub 558 series, Konica Minolta now presents four premium A3 monochrome office devices with a speed of 30 to 55ppm, replacing the successful bizhub 554e series. The new series offers even more premium functionalities and finishing modes, while being highly reliable and productive. This combination enables the devices to complement existing, modern office printing environments perfectly.

Easy integration and operation

Especially in an OPS (Optimized Print Services) environment, in which colour devices, A4 printers and software solutions are being integrated as well, the new series offers great value. The smooth integration in workflows streamlines processes and guarantees getting jobs done in a highly efficient way. Just like with Konica Minolta’s other multifunctional printers (MFPs), the new series has been developed according to the “Know one – operate many” principle, which means that users, once they get used to the Konica Minolta user interface, can easily operate any other bizhub MFP. This principle also supports the seamless integration of new devices into existing MFP environments, which especially benefits large accounts with heterogeneous office printing fleets.

Improved usability, flexibility and customisation

The 9-inch electrostatic multi-touch panel provides smart and smooth operability. All devices allow flexible adaptation and customisation of the panel and printer driver interface to meet specific customer needs and make the operation even more convenient. Versatile finishing options enable users to produce various materials in-house, offering high flexibility if materials are required on short-notice, and the high paper input capacity allows for running large jobs without any interruptions.

Excellent connectivity with mobile and cloud solutions thanks to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE and NFC technology ensures a smooth connection of smartphones and tablets with the devices. Users benefit from easy printing of documents from and scanning directly to their mobile devices without the necessity of a desktop PC.
