Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta) has announced the availability of the Tecnau SheetFeeder KM 2250. The SheetFeeder roll feed system cuts sheets from a large, 50-inch diameter roll and feeds them, on-demand, to the bizhub PRESS monochrome digital production printer for up to 14 hours of uninterrupted time. The SheetFeeder KM 2250 sits next to the input side of the printer and includes a quick-change unwinder and precision cutter.

The Tecnau SheetFeeder KM 2250 enhances the performance of the bizhub PRESS, providing the following benefits:
  • Long-run productivity: Increases output, reducing downtime and minimizing the need for operator intervention.
  • Lowers paper costs: Purchasing paper in rolls instead of sheets can save 20 percent or more on non-commodity papers.
  • Handle multiple job specs: SheetFeeder options allow for running of pre-printed forms, performing hole-punching and more — allowing additional run applications inline for faster, more cost-effective print output.
  • Eco-friendly reliability: Reliable sheet transport, with a patented single-sheet feeding mechanism, feeds sheets to the print engine on demand.
SheetFeeder KM 2250 creates all form sizes the printer can handle, right up to a large, 13-by-19.2-inch sheet, over the printer's basis weight range of 40 to 350 gsm.

Currently the Tecnau SheetFeeder KM 2250 is compatible with the following monochrome bizhub PRESS models: bizhub PRESS 2250P, bizhub PRESS 1250/1250P and bizhub PRESS 1052.

"The Tecnau SheetFeeder KM 2250 offers customers the best solution to meet their needs, making this a great addition — users print more in less time while lowering paper and labor costs," said Kevin Kern, senior vice president of business intelligence solutions, Konica Minolta. "Users may switch between 8.5-by-11-inch and 11-by-17-inch applications without changing rolls, delivering maximum performance and image quality."
