Ramsey, NJ – May 13, 2016 – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) is pleased to announce today the availability of the Tecnau SheetFeeder KM 2250. The SheetFeeder roll feed system cuts sheets from a large 50” 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.

- 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 13x19.2" sheet, over the printer’s basis weight range of 40 to 350 gsm.
