Konica Business Technologies Introduces the 7155
Konica Business Technologies, Inc. an innovation leader in digital imaging solutions and a subsidiary of Konica Corporation, announced the expansion of its next generation departmental document system line with the introduction of the 7155. Addressing workgroup environment needs for a feature-rich system at a reasonable price, the 7155 offers print and copy speeds of 55 page-per-minute (ppm), enhanced scanning and advanced production finishing capabilities such as three-folding, multiple post-sheet insertion and saddle-stitching. In addition, the 7155 includes direct scan-to-email functionality, improved paper weight capability (up to 110 lb. from any drawer), and an enhanced touch screen visual interface.
A sister product to the 7165, the 7155 is built on Konica's new engine that combines functionality and productivity in a smaller design, making it easier for users to place this production-level machine in departmental settings. The optional embedded IP-511 print controller adds high-performance network printing and finishing features. The new scan server function allows both network scanning and direct scan-to-email functions using standard email protocols, and enables the document to be attached as a TIFF or PDF file for easy viewing by the recipient. The 7155 is rated for a maximum monthly duty cycle of 300,000 impressions, a toner yield of 47,500, a developer yield of 250,000 and a drum yield of 500,000.
Simitri(TM) Polymerized Toner
The 7155 is the newest Konica product, following the 7035 and 7165, to offer Simitri polymerized toner technology. Developed in response to the ever-increasing demand for higher image quality, Simitri toner provides significantly better halftone definition and better solid fills. In addition, this breakthrough toner lowers fusing temperatures, provides a high toner yield, and is environmentally friendly overall. Konica's unique process allows control of both shape and size of the toner particle, enabling optimization of the performance characteristics of the engine.
