Designed from the ground up to be digital print factories, these machines demonstrate Konica Minolta’s mission to support the transformation of its clients. The launch also underlines the company’s vision of creating solutions that expand and streamline its businesses through various factors. These include advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints, and higher productivity with tangible effect, leading to increased, high-quality output with less waste.

Tai Nizawa, managing director, Konica Minolta Business Solutions, said, “At Konica Minolta, we strive to innovate and advance at every step we take, to create and deliver cutting-edge printing solutions for our stakeholders. The launch of our latest machines is in sync with this vision, and further reaffirms our commitment to meeting the changing needs of our customers and offering them products that ensure higher quality and productivity with minimal waste of resources and time. Going forward, we will continue to follow an agile approach, innovate our existing portfolios, and offer the best to our customers in the following years.”

The entry-level AccurioPress C14000/12000 press, which starts at a price of Rs 75-lakh, features a new Simitri HD ink, a printhead that delivers a resolution that is equivalent to 3,600x2,400-dpi, inline trimming, slitting and creasing for full-bleed output. The machines automate many of the arduous processes like calibration and setup time, enabling the printer to be more agile. They can handle substrates ranging from 52 to 450-gsm, or 300-gsm for textured stock, and it can also handle envelopes. The duty cycle is 2.5-m sheets/month.

The new machines are designed to help customers ramp up the productivity levels of their businesses through speed and efficiency. Sporting resolution equivalent to 3600x2400-dpi and an enhanced media capability of up to 450-gsm, not only do these products ensure speed to operations, but also offers outstanding image quality and unparalleled media flexibility.

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. The company has also improved its two-dimensional registration correction feature through the higher output resolution.
