Konica Minolta print solution improves page per minute output by 30% for Page Visions

Print Solutions


Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd’s print solutions have enabled the design and print agency, Page Visions, to rapidly expand its print capacity and meet demand for high volume, small quantity runs. A combination of two Konica Minolta C12000s, Trimmer Units and IQ-501 Quality Optimisers has increased page per minute output by 30%.

From its production facility in Slough, Page Visions produces internal business documents for FTSE 100 companies. Its print on demand output involves high volume small quantity orders that have short and strict lead times.


Tom Griffiths, director at Page Visions, commented: ‘The AccurioPress C12000 ticks a lot of boxes for us, with the long paper tray being particularly useful. It is unique to Konica Minolta and we have the option to go to nine trays, but we are only using six on both machines.’


He continued, ‘The two trimmer units afford us the opportunity to finish in-line, which is a good optimisation for a significant part of our work. This gives us a great deal of flexibility.’

The IQ-501 units have also made a big impact, as Tom added, ‘These scan the sheets for defects whilst running, giving us in line calibration, which means we can consistently manage the output between the two presses in a sophisticated way, maintaining the standard between them. It also facilitates back to back and sheet to sheet registration, which is really impressive.’

‘In real world terms we have had about a 30% increase per engine, in terms of pages per minute,’ concluded Tom. ‘We also have greater consistency of colour between the two machines because of the IQ-501 unit, which is a considerable benefit too, and the in line trimming has helped considerably as well – that really makes a difference!’
