The firm has announced its “simply efficient” AccurioPress C6100 Series of colour production printers, which are designed to support a highly responsive print room environment.
The AccurioPress C6100 Series is now available in the 85 ppm C6085 and the 100 ppm C6100. The fast and flexible series has been created for operations that recently started digital printing and are now expanding their service, as well as those that need to handle large, repeat print volumes.
Karl-Friedrich Edenhuizen, product manager, Production Printing Group said: “Customers including graphic communication providers, CRDs and Print for Pay operations will all benefit from these simply efficient presses. This new generation of true production systems has been designed to ensure improved uptime and deliver even higher quality printed materials with greater reliability and stability."
“With the Integrated Color Care Unit, they overcome some of the biggest pain points in digital print production, such as time-consuming front-to-back registration, extensive color setup and complex paper setup operations, which are now something in the past.”
He added: “These presses will underpin Konica Minolta’s market-leading reputation for productivity, reliability and quality. They will meet and exceed the advanced requirements of print production at the highest levels, as well as offering digital image quality on par with offset printing. All of our sales are backed by our Digital1234 business support program, as well as market-leading service support.”
Uptime is assured via highly automated features such as automated color adjustment, skill-less operation, constant control of gradation and front-to-back registration. Enhanced functions, including stabilized paper feeding, support a wide range of paper weights from 52 gsm to 400 gsm, plus embossed paper, encouraging broader production possibilities.
Other enhancements include low-cost envelope printing, via a dedicated fusing unit—all of these features are targeted at growing printers’ business.
Reliability and stability is further enabled by Simitri HD E toner for higher offset-like natural textures while lower temperature fusing reduces damage to paper, resulting in higher quality finishes and improved environmental performance.
“The new series also delivers a top-class monthly duty cycle while parts have a long life,” adds Edenhuizen. “Collectively, all these innovations have been combined into our fastest and most efficient and automated press yet. It has been launched to help operations enhance their bottom line with a production press that offers maximum uptime and job flexibility for more profit in the print room," he concluded.
