Konica Minolta has launched the AccurioPress C3080 series, its revolutionary production digital colour press with features developed to let commercial printers expand into new markets and print revenue streams.
The versatility and reliability offered by the AccurioPress C3080 series lets print professionals surpass their requirements for on-demand printing, which customers now expect. With high print speeds of up to 81ppm that equates to 4,399 A4 sheets per hour or 2,113 SRA3 sheets per hour, the C3080 will help commercial printers manage print deadlines with ease.
The AccurioPress C3080 and the C3070 are both available with the new IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser that provides a higher level of colour consistency, automated sheet registration (image-on-image, image-on paper and front to back side registration) on every page, measured and managed automatically, in real time, by the digital press.
The IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser drives results and will further assist to meet customer expectations by: eliminating variability in colour and registration; reducing waste through real-time auto correction/detection; reducing manual intervention; increasing uptime with automated, system self-correction; and executing the highest standards of colour accuracy.
Sue Thelfro general manager, Production & Industrial Print, Konica Minolta, said, “This innovation in digital printing delivers time savings for print operators of up to 60 per cent and can increase system print productivity by up to 20 per cent, ensuring a better experience for customers and increasing overall productivity.
“In an increasingly competitive market it is more important than ever that commercial printers are able to take advantage of new technology that improves their service, speed, and range to customers to ensure business growth. Konica Minolta is dedicated to helping ensure their success into the future by bringing to market new technology like the AccurioPress C3080 series.”
