MJ Flood launches next-gen digital colour press

28 Mar 2011

Leading printing and imaging specialist MJ Flood has launched a next-generation digital colour production press, the Bizhub Press C8000, that offers exceptional image quality, superior colour accuracy and versatile media handling.

The unit, by Konica Minolta, is targeted at commercial printers, centralised reprographic departments and the Print for Pay industry. 

Suitable for monthly digital volumes starting from as little as 45,000 copies, MJ Flood believes the BizHub Press C8000 is set to revolutionise the digital colour production industry in Ireland. With an aggressive price point, it provides increased margin opportunity, enhanced efficiency and streamlined productivity. The availability of in-house finance options through MJ Flood makes the BizHub Press C8000 one of the most affordable, high-volume digital printing presses on the market.

“The gap between offset printing and digital has narrowed significantly, thanks to the Bizhub Press C8000. The unit is ideal for short-run work, allowing printers to take on a wider variety of jobs at superior cost performance. This answers market demand for better print quality and one-to-one communications. We are confident that we can beat the cost per copy for any comparable machine in its class, thus offering print production companies increased margin and a better competitive position for their services,” said Phil Schuler, production print manager with MJ Flood.
