Konica Minolta C6500


Image Adjustment

The image should be centered on the gap if printing cross page spreads.  Otherwise, full bleed images can be printed through the gap entirely as necessary.

Printing Tips

  • FlexBind® sheets can be run with the hinge in any orientation.  Ideally, in-board or out-board (in the print direction) is preferred.
  • All weights of FlexBind® have been tested through the C6500 Press with acceptable performance and no press jams relating to the FlexBind® hinge.  Weights ranged from 148 – 300 gsm.  Testing is recommended before introducing new products.
  • Slight image deletions when printing in the gap are normal.  When bound in a book, those deletions become less noticeable. 
  • Depending on the limitation of the equipment, some heavier weight materials may not auto-duplex.  Therefore, these products should be manually-duplex printed.
  • It is recommended that the bypass drawer is used for feeding.
  • If the printer jams repeatedly at the output tray, run the sheets in a manual duplex mode with the paper weight selector set on the maximum paper weigth setting. 
  • When adjusting the image into place, use a plain sheet of paper cut to the same size as the FlexBind® sheet.  This will save on setup costs. 
  • Fan sheets when loading into the feed drawer.
  • UV coating can be used normally with FlexBind®.
