Redefining the class

The number of high-mix low-volume print jobs continues to increase and print companies need to complete orders within shorter lead times. Printing demands that were difficult to fulfil with conventional presses can now be processed efficiently thanks to the flexibility of digital printing.

The bizhub PRESS C71cf is ideal for label printers who are looking to shift volumes from conventional presses to digital – in order to deal with shorter print run lengths, requests for faster delivery times, personalisation and versioning, and the production of on-demand runs.

The bizhub PRESS C71cf offers outstanding productivity, brilliant image quality and a surprising ease of use: our innovative label printer is ideal to expand into new markets and perfectly complements existing analogue machines.
