Konica Minolta: Digital in the driver’s seat

Konica Minolta Australia Product Marketing Manager Tatjana Ferguson provided an update on Konica Minolta’s digital printing technologies in a recent Technology Focus in the October issue of ProPrint.

Let’s see what she had to say:

“Last year we launched the AccurioPress C14000 series and AccurioJet KM-1e. This year is proving exciting with several new print systems all designed to ignite print possibilities. With the recent launch of the AccurioPress C7100 series, we complete the full refresh of our colour line up,” she told ProPrint, adding the refreshed line-up offers an array of inbuilt and optional automation technologies, all designed to deliver greater productivity to commercial printers, and at the same time deliver exceptional print quality, consistently.

Konica Minolta’s Intelligent Quality Optimiser comes standard with the AccurioPress C14000

The range offers advanced media flexibility handling media weights from 52gsm up to 450gsm, long sheets in both simplex and auto duplex, and longer-life parts and consumables. There is also a choice of controller options for each digital print system, giving printers the flexibility to choose one that suits their workflow.

“The production line up is available with the revolutionary Intelligent Quality Optimiser, IQ-510, unique to Konica Minolta. Standard on the AccurioPress C14000 Series, but optional with others in the range,” she says.

“It guarantees only the best prints will leave your shop. This closed-loop system ensures automated colour control and registration accuracy, resulting in streamlined operator time, reduced print waste and improved productivity. Also available is the unique trimmer unit, TU-510 option. The trimmer unit can trim, crease and perforate inline. This means you can output finished documents ready to be boxed and shipped.”

The new range can help digital print providers with many applications and markets, Ferguson emphasises.

“Exceptional print quality, extended media capability, powerful controller options and an array of inline finishing options means printers can meet just about any print requirement. And for the printers seeking the speed and flexibility of an offset press combined with the digital benefits of zero make-ready, the AccurioJet KM-1e is the answer. This B2+ UV inkjet press prints on 585mm x 750mm sheets, allowing for 6-up letter-size printing.”

Ferguson reflects, “Konica Minolta is very much focused on delivering innovation that can help printers succeed now and in the future. As a brand we’re committed to driving growth for businesses in the print industry with greater versatility across new markets, inspiring creative outputs, and newfound routes to efficiencies.

“Our solutions can help printers pivot to offer new services and applications, support different run lengths as well as add creativity and value to brands. We can also help printers realise new efficiencies with automated features that reduce manual touch points, improving output quality, productivity and ultimately profitability.”
