Robust bizhub PRO design. A true print professional, the bizhub PRO C6501 is designed from the ground up to handle the rigorous demands of high-volume production printing in both corporate and print-for-pay environments.

High-speed, high-volume output. 65 ppm print/copy output in both color and B&W lets you deliver short-run color printing more profitably -- with a work horse monthly duty cycle of up to 300,000 pages.

Spectacular high-definition color images. Simitri® HD Color Polymerized Toner utilizes smoother ultra-small granules to sharpen text, enhance fine detail, and reproduce a wider color gamut with rich tones that resist fading for excellent long-term quality. Oil-less fusing at low temperature saves energy -- and color prints and copies resist fading.

Superb color quality, first print to last. Dot placement accuracy better than one pixel and improvements in image density from first to final print ensure that printed output will meet requirements of even the most critical eye.

Precise registration adjustment. Front and reverse sides are precisely matched to insure accurate alignment within 1mm for booklets or other duplex multi-page documents, with independent adjustments for transversal direction timing and image shift.

Air-assist paper feed. Air blowers in paper trays separate sheets to improve high-speed paper handling, so even coated substrates move smoothly through your high-speed production cycle.

Internal heating unit. For smooth, fast throughput, an internal heating unit environmentally conditions paper stock for professional image quality with less curling and fewer misfeeds.

Heavy and coatedstock. The bizhub PRO Color Production Series handles heavy and coated paper stock -- up to 300 gm2, with full duplex capability up to 256 gm2.

Full-bleed 12" x 18" printing. You can print on paper sizes up to 13.6" x 19.2", to reproduce full-bleed 12" x 18" color originals while preserving crop marks and borders -- a real advantage forproduction print professionals.

Maximum 7,500-sheet input. Add the optional PF-602 Paper Feed Unit, and you can load up to 7,500 sheets -- reducing labor cost by printing long runs with unattended operation.

Add paper and change toner on the fly. The bizhub C6501 also lets you add paper without interrupting your work -- and replenish toner on the fly with a clean, simple exchange of toner bottles.

Powerful finishing options. The FS-521 Staple Finisher provides sorting, grouping and 100-sheet multi-position stapling with staple cutting function for varying staple length; the SD-506 Booklet Finisher enables you to produce folded, stitched and trimmed booklets up to 200 pages (50 sheets); the FD-503 Multi-Folding Unit provides half fold, letter fold-in, letter fold-out, z-fold, double parallel fold and gate fold capabilities, and the PB-502 Perfect Binder creates perfect-bound books of up to 600 pages with precisely trimmed covers.

5,000-sheet stacker option. The optional LS-505 Large Capacity Stacker holds up to 5,000 sheets and includes a roll-away cart that lets you move print output more easily for nearline finishing or packing and distribution.

Three image controlleroptions.
