Opportunities for business expansion

The unique features of the AccurioPress C14000 series make these products ideal for customers looking to increase productivity through efficiencies and speed to grow their business. With  resolution equivalent to
equiv. 3600 x2400 dpi and enhanced media capability up to 450 gsm, these new products offer breathtaking speeds with outstanding image quality and unparalleled media flexibility. New duplex banner printing up to 900 mm and simplex banner length capability of 1,300 mm, combined with envelope and embossed media printability gives customers the opportunity to offer new types of work, such as four-panel gatefold brochures and book covers for finishing offline. New technology used in the print engine dramatically improves image quality on textured paper stocks.

Operational Efficiency

Paired with Konica Minolta’s enhanced IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer, the new presses automatically and continuously measure and correct colour so the first print in a run matches the last. Two-dimensional registration correction has also been improved through the higher output resolution.

The automatic media detection sensor comes standard on these models, detecting the stock and assigning the appropriate tray, eliminating time-consuming paper settings and operator error, reducing waste, and increasing productivity.

A new function includes the TU-510 Versatile Trimmer Unit, an inline, four-edge trimmer and creaser that allows full-bleed finishing support for banners, booklets, direct mail, and a dedicated business card cutting option. Additionally, the LS-507 Large Stacker supports higher speed, permits banner bypass, and offers operators the advantage of offloading while the machine is still running, another new benefit added to Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress expanded line. Convenient colour management and job management utilities are available with Konica Minolta’s proprietary controller. A customizable operation screen makes the products extremely easy to operate. Third-party controller options include the latest Fiery model.

Stability, High Durability and Reduced Downtime Improve TCO

Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer’s enhanced auto inspection options offer expanded inspection performance, verifying print quality and now detecting streaks and spots as well as blemishes. It ejects prints, which do not fulfill the target quality and reprints without interrupting the job. The high-precision spectrophotometer of IQ-501 feeds back the output color quality to the engine and adjusts the deviation from the target color on the fly.

The high-quality prints mean maximum stability even during long-run jobs, while better registration and quality increases total usable print volume with maximum colour consistency. The new press AccurioPress C14000 offer a highly reliable duty cycle of 2.5 million.
