Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. has unveiled its AccurioPress C7100 Series of digital colour presses with innovative technologies to create more profitable business opportunities. “From intelligent automation and enhanced finishing, to flawless quality, advanced capabilities and exceptional durability, customers have the power to grow their businesses through a press that works smarter,” said the OEM. Succeeding the successful AccurioPress C6100 Series, the new AccurioPress C7100 model runs at 100 pages per minute (ppm) with the AccurioPress C7090 running at 90 ppm.
“Key to the development of the AccurioPress C7100 and AccurioPress C7090 was building a press that works smarter, not harder, with new technologies geared to provide stability, reliability and productivity to make businesses more profitable,” said Dino Pagliarello, Senior Vice President of Product Management and Planning. “These new models bring the agility that print service providers have come to expect from Konica Minolta, and serve our mission to support our clients’ transformation with opportunities for new revenue sources.”
Konica Minolta’s latest Simitri V Toner is eco-friendly and formulated for performance. Fast melting, energy efficient and low maintenance, it reproduces superb quality on a wider range of media up to 400 g/m2. Combined with an output resolution of 3,600 dpi equivalent x 2,400 dpi, outstanding results are achieved from even the longest print runs. With auto-duplex banners up to 900 mm and the flexibility to handle embossed and textured media, handling of the machines “is so simple that the most complex projects can be run by a single operator.”
Enhanced automation, durability and finishing
By instantly detecting the precise stock being used, the optional Intelligent Media Sensor IM-101 significantly reduces production time. At the same time, the optional IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care Unit ensures perfectly consistent color quality and front-to-back registration on every print in real time. With no recalibrations or inspections mid-run, users benefit from printing image data now directly comparable with scanning data from IQ-501 with real time variable data print (VDP) inspection. It can be inspected for changes in text and images with real time color and registration adjustment.New technologies built into the engine include a more durable lubricated drum, double corona wires with automatic cleaning, an optimized paper transport solution and a double-swing registration system for improved paper compatibility and feeding accuracy.
As with the entire AccurioPress portfolio, a wide range of finishing and other functions are offered, in addition to booklet making, stapling, perfect binding and wire binding. Konica Minolta’s TU-510, the world’s first inline cutting finisher, successfully introduced with the AccurioPress C14000 high-volume production printer, is available for the AccurioPress C7100 Series. The TU-510 is a four-edge trimmer and creaser that allows for full-bleed finishing support for long sheets, booklets, direct mail and dedicated business-card cutting.
