Imagination Graphics has installed the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000 at its premises this week, with the printer up and running to manage the company’s workloads.
Imagination Graphics director Emmanuel Buhagiar told Sprinter that he had ordered the latest AccurioPress to come to market – the C14000 – in March, after a number of its presses were destroyed during the Sydney floods in February.
The installation of the C14000 for Imagination Graphics is the first in Australia.
“I had to replace two machines, which I lost in the flood. So, I did a bit of research on the machine and negotiated a price with Konica Minolta. I replaced it with insurance, one of my other machines, and paid a bit more,” Buhagiar said.
“We’ve had it for just over a week now and it’s been on fire; it’s really good machine.”
Buhagiar said the speed of the printer attracted him to the machine.
“I read that it was performing really well in the US and since it was arriving in Australia in a matter of weeks, I thought why not have it at Imagination Graphics,” he said.
“It can print over a metre long in duplex. It has a faster speed than all the other ones, and we added the finisher with it so it can produce saddle-stitched books quite quickly. So, the whole production process using the machine is much faster and much more reliable than all the others that I’ve found.”
According to Buhagiar, it also works hand-in-hand with the other machines at Imagination Graphics.
“I’ve got the C6100 and the C14000 works seamlessly with it. Once the AccurioJet KM-1 comes in, which will be around end-August, we’ll have some fire power again,” he mentioned.
“We can now expect more speed on our side, and that it can print log sheets. It has allowed us to offer this extra service.”
