New Fiery DFEs for Konica Minolta monochrome printers

Print Solutions

Fiery has announced two new, highly automated digital front ends (DFEs) for the Konica Minolta AccurioPress 6120/6136/6136P and 6272P printers to help print businesses boost throughput, reduce waste and drive more margin in monochrome cut sheet production printing.

One of the two new solutions, the Fiery MIC-4160 DFE, drives Konica Minolta AccurioPress 6120, 6136, and 6136P printers and processes jobs 30% faster compared to the previous generation. The Fiery MIC-4170 DFE delivers an even more significant speed boost and processes jobs 41% faster than the MIC-4160 – or 86% faster than the previous generation.

In addition to bringing higher productivity to AccurioPress 6120/6136/6136P, the new, top-of-the-line Fiery MIC-4170 DFE also supports the new Konica Minolta AccurioPress 6272P tandem engine printer. The MIC-4170, built on the advanced Fiery NX Pro platform running FS500 Pro software, eliminates any workflow bottlenecks that could prevent users from continuously running at the AccurioPress 6272P’s maximum speeds of up to 272 letter size (or 156 tabloid size) duplex impressions per minute.

‘The biggest opportunity for our customers revolves around their ability to produce more jobs per shift, and our partnership with Fiery helps ensure that AccurioPress users achieve this goal,’ said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, product management and planning, Konica Minolta. ‘Commercial print shops and in-plants require greater efficiencies to streamline their high volume monochrome operations, and these new Fiery DFEs are well equipped to meet this demand. By reducing turnaround times while handling a larger volume of short run jobs, users can get the most from their AccurioPress investments.’

In addition to the included Fiery ImageViewer for Black and White, the two new DFEs also ensure exceptional image quality for Konica Minolta monochrome engines with grayscale calibration technologies for enhanced shadow detail.

‘These new, highly functional DFEs help to differentiate Konica Minolta AccurioPresses from other monochrome printers in the market,’ said John Henze, Fiery’s vice president of sales and marketing. ‘Without Fiery DFE technology, users miss out on the advanced processing power of FS500 Pro – our core software platform which enables users to always run their digital printers at top speeds. Plus, other DFEs do not offer the exclusive intelligent automation power of Fiery JobExpert, which saves time by ensuring correct settings for accurate printing the first time, every time.’
