Ineo 1100 – many improvements on successful predecessor
There’s always room for improvement – even on such a successful system as the ineo 951, the entry-level production printing system DEVELOP launched in 2012. Its successor, the ineo 1100, offers new applications and functions, a faster turnaround time, a colour scanner and a flexible OpenAPI interface. This new monochrome system is ideally equipped to deal with the frequently changing jobs in on-demand production printing environments.
“The ineo 1100 features a highly reliable print engine with the durability that comes from proven technology,” says product manager André Statkus. “This print system is 5 ppm faster than its predecessor and displays great media flexibility in handling a wide range of different print jobs. Another highlight is its high scalability thanks to the open-platform OpenAPI interface.”
Built for high productivity
With a high monthly print volume, the ineo 1100 is ideally equipped to handle the production printing demands of internal printrooms, digital print service providers and other high-volume printing environments. The device’s high productivity ensures short turnaround times, which is a big benefit when tackling time-critical print jobs. Since the vast majority of high-volume jobs in this segment are still printed in black and white, the ineo 1100 offers all that is required of an entry-level monochrome production printing system – with the added advantage of a colour scanner, which scans documents in a single-path duplex operation at up to 180 ipm. What’s more, the output speed of ineo 1100 does not come at the expense of quality. A genuine resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi, unique screening technology and customised professional-quality tone curve and screening adjustments (based on an upgraded tone curve utility) ensure outstanding output quality.
Designed for flexibility
With a maximum paper capacity of 9,000 sheets in five cassettes and a newly developed bypass tray where 250 sheets can be inserted, the ineo 1100 is well equipped for any high-volume print job, and even extensive mixed-media jobs can be handled easily. The device’s media flexibility – a standard grammage range of 40-300 g/m2 (optionally up to 350 g/m2) and paper formats from 92 x 132 mm to SRA3 (max. 324 x 483 mm) – enables the ineo 1100 to tackle just about any job a production printer is likely to face.
This print system’s flexibility is also evident in the professional finishing options DEVELOP offers: production of up to 100-page booklets with automatic ring binding; 2-point and choice-of-corner stapling for up to 100 sheets; 2- or 4-hole punching (also for post-inserted documents); Z-folding for
inclusion of A3 documents in A4 printouts; letter folding for up to three pages; and a newly developed output tray for offline finishing or where no finisher is needed. The optional GBC punch unit comes with a wide range of die sets to ensure compatibility with most popular punching schemes, e.g. metal-based (wire) or plastic (comb) binding.
Programmed for communication
The ineo 1100 is the first production printing device from DEVELOP to support Konica Minolta’s OpenAPI technology, which allows developers to create applications that communicate with this print system. As a result, customers can use third-party accounting, authentication or scan-routing applications, such as YSoft SafeQ or Nuance eCopy Sharescan, in combination with this printer. Since all this print system’s powerful features can be controlled via an easy-to-operate touchscreen, the ineo 1100 represents a successful symbiosis of professional-quality printing, uncomplicated usability and extensive utility.
