MJ Flood are proud to announce the release of the AccurioPress C14000 Series high-volume production presses. The presses offer higher total productivity and efficiency that will really change the game for commercial printers.
Sales have started for Konica Minolta’s new AccurioPress C14000 series, its first foray into the high-volume toner printing segment. The AccurioPress C14000 prints at 140 pages per minute (ppm) in A4 and is 40% faster than any other toner-based device from Konica Minolta. A second model in the series, the AccurioPress C12000, provides the same print quality and a similarly fast speed of 120 ppm.
The 140 ppm AccurioPress C14000, along with the 120 ppm AccurioPress C12000, were designed from the ground up to be digital print factories. These presses really demonstrate Konica Minolta’s mission to support the transformation of its clients, with a number of advanced automation features and accessories that will help printers expand and streamline their operations to deliver increased, high-quality output with less waste.
The AccurioPress C14000 Series offers the new TU-510 versatile trimmer unit for advanced operational efficiency. The TU-510 is a truly unique inline, four-edge trimmer and creaser that allows full bleed finishing support for banners, booklets, direct mail and a dedicated business card cutting option. In addition, the AccurioPress C14000 series is equipped with the Intelligent Quality Optimiser (IQ-501) as standard, which can also improve labour efficiency by as much as 30 per cent.
Unveiled across the world, this new flagship cut-sheet product will maximize customer value based on opportunities for business expansion, accelerated operational efficiency and improved total cost of ownership (TCO) with faster investment return. The AccurioPress C14000 Series is also part of Konica Minolta’s mission to support the transformation of its clients’ companies by sector and industry, predicting potential challenges and creating solutions together. The presses will help customers that want to expand and streamline their businesses through advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints and higher productivity with tangible effects leading to increased, high-quality output with less waste.
The AccurioPress C6100s series for mid production print (MPP), on the other hand, are designed to support a highly responsive print room environment. The AccurioPress C14000 is in the high production print (HPP) segment, offering a higher print volume and longer duty cycle to reach new commercial print customers within the HPP segment requiring high productivity, efficiency of operations and quality for direct mail, brochures and catalogues.
Konica Minolta has been a pioneer for well over a decade and set new standards in the industry, which we will now expand into the high production print (HPP) segment. This is a really high-quality press, which we are confident will be really successful in terms of sales and will provide numerous benefits for customers. The similarities in quality between traditional offset and what we can do with toner is astonishing.
Olaf Lorenz, General Manager DX Branding Division at Konica Minolta, Inc.
Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care enhanced auto inspection options 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 print volume. The new presses offer a highly reliable duty cycle of 2.5 million, with double the toner capacity of earlier models.
“The IQ-501 is a differentiator for us,” added Mr Lorenz. “While other manufacturers have similar technology, we believe our unique, inline auto inspection unit will separate us from the pack of comparable devices. Both the AccurioPress series of printers and the IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care are designed and offered to the market exclusively by Konica Minolta.”
