|Konica Minolta unveils expanded feature portfolio in new AccurioPress C3080 series
With the launch of the AccurioPress C3080 series, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe introduces a new line of production printing systems. As a successor of the AccurioPress C2070 series, the AccurioPress C3080 digital series combines the outstanding quality and performance of the previous models with additional features and options to adapt to individual customer requirements. It also helps increase customer profitability by creating smooth and streamlined workflows to expand print services.
The AccurioPrint C3070/C3080 are perfect for print providers in an entry-level production environment. Both devices provide an easy transition into digital printing, with entry-level finishing features and an optional modular concept for maximum colour consistency.
Customers benefit from the superb image quality and optimal media flexibility. For commercial printers and CRDs with high volume demands, Konica Minolta offers the AccurioPress C3070/C3080/P. These devices are particularly well suited for the creation of digital printing materials, in light of professional modular finishing, outstanding colour and registration stability combined with excellent print quality.
With a print speed of 81ppm in colour and monochrome, the AccurioPress C3080 series enables print providers to create more business opportunities by handling a high media flexibility and wide range of essential digital printing applications. The series comes with improved thick paper support for various media types, such as coated and embossed paper up to 350 gsm. In addition, a new, large capacity unit for banners up to 762 mm in size ensures efficient banner printing, such as for book covers and three-fold menus. Auto duplex printing and paper capacity of up to 15,390 sheets maximises uptime.
IQ-501 delivers automatic and real time colour and registration adjustment and the creation of printer profiles with skill-less operation. This helps eliminate input time and reduces errors.
André Statkus, Product Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH explains: “As there is no longer the need for measurement or numerical input, high quality print products are constantly available with fewer manual settings and less human errors. In addition, thanks to real-time monitoring and adjustments during printing, high quality is ensured, contributing to cost reduction through less waste but also improving customer trust.
The new colour dual scanner is capable of running at a speed of up to 240 ipm, and is equipped with a double-feed detection kit to avoid scanning two sheets at once. Envelope production has increased in speed, too, resulting in a more cost effective process.
OpenAPI provides a seamless interface between Konica Minolta production printing devices and third-party solutions for accounting, authentication or scan routing such as YSoft Safe Q and Nuance eCopy Sharescan. Furthermore, IWS (Internal Web Server) enables the User Interface to be customised based on operator requirements, which makes everyday work more efficient.
