Konica Minolta launches AccurioPress C7100 Series
Konica Minolta has introduced the AccurioPress C7100 series, digital colour presses packed 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.
Succeeding the highly successful AccurioPress C6100 Series, the new AccurioPress C7100 model runs at 100 pages per minute with the AccurioPress C7090 at 90 pages per minute. With a focus on optimising performance, offering new and advanced print products, and growing the entire business, the AccurioPress C7100 series serves more customers and completes more jobs with innovative technologies that power success.
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 3600 dpi equivalent x 2400 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.
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 colour 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 inspection. It can be inspected for changes in text and images with real time colour and registration adjustment.
As with the entire AccurioPress portfolio, a wide range of finishing and other functions are also offered in addition to bookletmaking, stapling, perfect binding and wire binding. The company’s TU-510, an in line cutting finisher, successfully introduced with the C14000 high volume production printer, is available for the AccurioPress C7100 Series. The TU-510 is a four-edge trimmer and creaser that allows full bleed finishing support for long sheets, booklets, direct mail, and dedicated business card cutting options.
Among the new technologies built into the engine are a more durable lubricated drum, double corona wires with automatic cleaning, an optimiaed paper transport solution and a double swing registration system for improved paper compatibility and feeding accuracy.
The AccurioPress C7100 Series is designed to support a highly responsive print room environment where customers rethink agility and offers a choice of different controller front ends from EFI, Creo and Konica Minolta’s own offering to perfectly match customer requirements.
‘The launch of the AccurioPress C7100 Series is the evolution of our hugely successful C6100 Series and represents another really important step forward as we continue to expand our portfolio offerings,’ said Karl Friedrich Edenhuizen, product manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. ‘The new models make a powerful impression and have many simply efficient capabilities.
