  • Konica Minolta C368 300 gsm capability

    The specs say it can, but a dealer technician told us it printing on 300 gsm will damage the printer. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks

    I found this about a higher end machine

      According to the brochure, the only paper tray that supports 300gsm is the manual bypass tray, and it won't automatically duplex it.

      As it is at the end of the supported specification, my experience with other equipment suggests that sometimes quality, registration, and performance may not be optimal at the end of its range. As this is an office level printer, that supports what I am saying as well...though technically it can run 300gsm, its really designed to run plain paper more than anything. The customer expectations document should outline these limitations more specifically. I have to doubt that damaging the machine would actually occur, unless you are doing something deliberately abusive. If you are attempting to run within specification, and the technicians disagree with the spec, I would consult your sales rep.

        Why Would You Ever Want To Automate?
        It seems far too complex, costs money, involves a lot of people, will take time etc etc. And then you run out of excuses. Read the article.
