Easy to use
The bizhub A3 colour series has been designed with usability in mind, for quick and easy operation that requires minimal training.
InfoPalette touch panel
The smart, 9-inch InfoPalette touch panel, a feature of every device in the bizhub A3 colour series, wakes up automatically as your hand approaches. Its multi-touch functionality is similar to tablet and smartphone devices. It boasts simple horizontal menus controlled by gestures, such as flick and drag, and intuitive pop-up menus, to make life easier. Plus, frequently-used settings can be pre-set and placed on the home screen to save time.
Professional quality printing, in house
1,200 dpi print resolution for small text, fine lines and high quality images
The A3 colour series can accommodate a wide range of paper sizes and weights up to 300 gsm and can produce originals on SRA3 sheets to preserve margins and crop marks. The optional EFI Fiery image controller* lets you handle specific PANTONE colour requirements, manage print queues and fine-tune colour output to suit the needs of any job. These powerful additional functions make the bizhub A3 colour series the perfect choice for in-house printing of short run documents and brochures.

Reduce wasted power without sacrificing efficiency
This new series features an innovative, dynamic eco timer which can be programmed on a weekday, date or time basis. It automatically analyses usage and improves settings. For example, it will automatically switch to sleep mode during a recurring lunch break. A special built-in sensor wakes up the device from sleep mode when it senses the user approaching the panel surface. Plus, thanks to its extremely short warm up time (as low as 18 seconds), your people needn’t wait to get their documents ready.
Eco meter and control panel preview
Information on toner and paper savings are also displayed on the new Eco Meter, making it easy to assess environmental contributions by the device. A blank page removal function also helps prevent paper wastage by detecting and preventing blank pages, found within a set of originals, from being copied or scanned. Plus, a real-time scan and copy preview on the control panel allows you to preview one page at a time, to confirm the position of each document and perform post-scan editing.
Open API and internal web server
The bizhub A3 colour series features Extended Solution Technology (bEST). This Open Platform technology allows seamless integration with software programs from Konica Minolta and third party developers. This software can help speed up your business workflow, manage your print production, perform account tracking and cost recovery, create direct mail promotions and more.
High speed print, copy, duplex scan and warm up time
Many of the devices in the bizhub A3 colour series give you the fastest single-pass duplex scanning speeds in their class. Double-sided documents are scanned in one go – with duplex colour and mono scanning running at up to 180 ppm and simplex colour and mono scanning running at up to 90 ppm. The bizhub A3 colour series also boasts best in class warm up performance, as low as 18 seconds, meaning they are ready to print at a moment’s notice. First copy out times are also impressive, producing quality output in as low as 4.6 seconds colour and 4.1 seconds monochrome.
Today’s office printing requirements extend beyond wired communication. The bizhub A3 colour series features wireless and Bluetooth printing from mobile phones - and enables you to print from or save to, flash-memory devices via a convenient USB connector. The PageScope mobile app enables busy professionals to print and scan, to and from smartphones and other portables, directly to networked bizhub devices.
