A digital press to help you succeed now and in the future

Konica Minolta is proud to announce it has received a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 PRO Award from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software, and services.

Granted annually, these awards acknowledge the products that gave the best performances in production field testing over the previous year. Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000 took top honours in the Outstanding High-Volume CMYK Production Device High-Volume Category and was identified as a trailblazer in the digital production marketplace.

Award-wining high volume colour digital press

Another key technology innovation noted by Keypoint Intelligence that separates the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000 from its peers is the new TU-510 Versatile Trimmer Unit. This inline, four-edge trimmer and creaser allows full-bleed finishing support for banners, booklets, direct mail, and a dedicated business card cutting option.

Reasons to choose AccurioPress C1400

The new AccurioPress C14000 series supports an extensive variety of media, ranging from thin stocks to thicker stocks up to 450 gsm, embossed paper, envelopes, as well as polyester and cut-sheet labels – to name but a few.

The AccurioPress C14000 series is the revolutionary Intelligent Quality Optimiser (IQ-501). Designed to produce higher quality prints in lesser time.

Maximise your investment

Reduce the setup time drastically, giving you maximum uptime. Combined with various inline finishing capabilities, you can produce more than ever.

The IQ-501 provides extensive automation for image position and registration as well as colour control.

Konica Minolta’s innovative IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser has impressed us since its launch, allowing for quick, best practice colour setup and media-registration profiling, with inline checking and adjustment tolerances controllable by the operator. This technology helped the device deliver an outstanding performance over our production-length tests where, over 67,000 clicks, the device never drifted above DeltaE00 3.4, nor did it exhibit an image-registration shift of more than 0.3 mm.

Konica Minolta is pleased have made such a successful entry into the high-volume toner printing segment with the C14000 Series, which has now been affirmed by this honour from Keypoint Intelligence. The IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser option is a key differentiator in the market and helps our customers take colour consistency and registration accuracy to the next level.
