Konica Minolta (HK), a leader in industrial and commercial printing and packaging solutions, announced the premiere of its new AccurioPress C14000 series, which offers higher total productivity and efficiency.
The 140 ppm AccurioPress C14000 and 120 ppm AccurioPress C12000 were designed from the ground up to be digital print factories. The products demonstrate Konica Minolta’s mission to support the transformation of its clients, creating solutions together that expand and streamline their businesses through advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints and higher productivity with tangible effect leading to increased, high-quality output with less waste.
Opportunities for Business Expansion
The unique features of the AccurioPress C14000 series make these products ideal for customers looking to increase productivity through efficiencies and speed to grow their business. With resolution equivalent to 3600 x 2400 dpi and enhanced media capability up to 450 gsm, these new products offer breathtaking speeds with outstanding image quality and unparalleled media flexibility. New duplex banner printing up to 900 mm and simplex banner length capability of 1,300 mm, combined with envelope and embossed media printability gives customers the opportunity to offer new types of work, such as four-panel gatefold brochures and book covers for finishing offline. To further improve efficiency and output, envelope printing can be accomplished using the standard fuser. Finally, new technology used in the print engine dramatically improves image quality on textured paper stocks.
Enhancing Operational Efficiency
Paired with Konica Minolta’s enhanced IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser, the new presses automatically and continuously measure and correct colour so the first print in a run matches the last. Two-dimensional registration correction has also been improved through the higher output resolution.
The automatic media detection sensor comes standard on these models, detecting the stock and assigning the appropriate tray, eliminating time-consuming paper settings and operator error, reducing waste and increasing productivity.
New accessories for the units include the TU-510 Versatile Trimmer, an inline, four-edge trimmer and creaser that allows full-bleed finishing support for banners, booklets, direct mail and a dedicated business card cutting option. Additionally, the LS-507 Large Stacker supports higher speed, permits banner bypass and offers operators the advantage of offloading while the machine is running, another new benefit added to Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress expanded line. Convenient colour management and job management utilities are available with Konica Minolta’s proprietary controller. A customizable operation screen makes the products extremely easy to operate. Other third-party controller options include the latest Fiery models.
Outstanding Stability, High Durability and Increased usable time
The enhanced auto inspection options of IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser offer expanded inspection performance, verifying print quality and now detecting streaks and spots as well as blemishes. The high-quality prints mean maximum stability even during long-run jobs, while better registration and quality increases total usable print volume. The new presses offer a highly reliable duty cycle of 2.5 million, up from 1.8 million with the AccurioPress C6100, with double the toner capacity of earlier models.
