    KM bizhub C250i - C360i printing heavy papers in the graphic market

    Hi all,


    I would greatly appreciate to know your market feedback experience with the C250i - C360i series regarding acceptance for print quality using papers from 200gr/m2 up to 300gr/m2. Particularly in those customers in the graphic segment (flyers, line art, photos) that perhaps are trying to upgrade from previous KM models like C284e / C308.


    Many thanks for your time.

    Probably Not a good move.
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    The colour reproduction on this is quite different to the 8 series.

    There are soft switches that can be set to alter this but it is still not the same.

    I wouldn’t go with one of these in any situation where the customer is fussy about colour reproduction.

    These are after all office colour machines, not print production

    The problem is Konica Minolta was making overall great color machines last 3-4 generations prior i-series.
    Some customers are making advantages on this using them as kinda semi pro machines. With today's technology machines can be even better if manufacturers want which I believe they really DON'T(read as economies and making more $$$).

    i would 100% suggest a Fiery controller if they plan on using it for production. for jobflow and color management.
    We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two.

    I have not noticed any significant colour quality difference in the i series to previous models.

    The engine design is still pretty much the same, drum, dev transfer fuser etc.

    But if you have access to one put them side by side & compare print samples from each.

    Office machines are still business color, adding the Fiery does not extend the color gamut they are able to reproduce. The machine can work with these media types, but it is 1st a plain paper copier. Anything out side that and you will not be happy. E

    This pdf explains the "improvements" from the 4e series to the i Series as it pertains to printing
    Agree that a Fiery is a must but these boxes are still a bit squirrely in my opinion so I could not recommend these units for a production environment.

    I’ve done more than a few colour courses over the years and “memory colour” is a totally made up thing!

    Trouble is most customers remember what their previous machine did and want it the same😀
