New Konica Minolta Colour Digital Presses Lead Market
Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) a leader in digital production print products and solutions, introduced the latest generation AccurioPress colour digital press, copier and scanner: the C3080 Series – which includes the C3080, C3080P and C3070. Also, part of the launch is the AccurioPrint C3070L.
The new C3080 is a unique, groundbreaking offering that is unmatched in its scope of capabilities. It delivers everything needed in a colour production press and more, including enhanced productivity, expanded print services and brilliant quality.
Unrivaled in its versatility, the C3080 series is a single digital press printer with advanced features to help businesses expand into new markets and develop new revenue streams. It provides the following enhancements:
- 2-sided banner printing
- professional finishing
- high productivity with speeds up to 80 ppm
- real-time automated quality adjustments
The AccurioPress C3080 Series features an industry-leading array of finishing options such as full-bleed, saddle-stitched books and perfect bound books. It does it all, including punching, stapling and stacking. The C3080 utilizes award-winning IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer technology to take colour consistency and registration accuracy to the next level. With highly automated image registration and colour control, the IQ-501 is a closed-loop system that constantly monitors and adjusts printed output, and can automate colour calibration and profiling.
Print after print, the C3080 delivers superlative image quality on thick paper (up to 350 gsm,) and embossed media and envelopes. It improves efficiency levels through:
- simple setup procedures
- an ultra-reliable paper path
- exceptional print speed
- outstanding automatic image stability for superior output and minimal waste
This all adds up to world-class productivity on every production print job.
Furthermore, the auto-duplex banner printing option allows for the production of 6-page tri-folds, brochures, book jackets, pocket folders and more. Previously, only an offset press had such flexibility.
Unlike some of its competitors, the C3080 series’ Energy Star rating ensures efficiency beyond the print floor. Plus, it has enhanced Open API and IWS applications support and is the fastest dual-colour scanner on the market. The AccurioPress C3080 also provides a choice of production print controllers including Konica Minolta, Fiery and Creo.
“Customer demand for production grade quality is constantly accelerating. By applying Konica Minolta’s technology we’re creating market disruption and increasing customer satisfaction,” said Norm Bussolaro, Senior Director, Marketing. “The new AccurioPress lineup brings compatibility with the IQ-501, and integration with Konica Minolta’s latest accessories, further expanding the functionality and capability into a compact, affordable footprint.”
With its ability to print two-sided banners and professionally finished books at high speeds on a wide variety of stocks, all with automated colour and registration, the AccurioPress C3080 is an ideal colour digital press for:
- commercial printers
- print for pay outfits
- quick printers
- franchise printers
- in-house marketing departments
All in all, it offers the industry a whole new realm of print production possibilities.
