Konica Minolta Australia has unveiled its newest AccurioPress series with the new C4080 model coming with a unique trimming unit which means the press can trim, crease and perforate inline.
Konica Minolta Australia product marketing manager, Tatjana Ferguson, says the new AccurioPress C4080 provides an easy transition into digital printing with inline finishing options that allow prints to be boxed and shipped right off the press.
Versatile, high-speed press
Konica Minolta says this versatile, high-speed digital colour production press is a perfect fit for businesses looking to expand their production capabilities with advanced automation and ease of use for various applications.
It utilises intelligent automation, offers outstanding image quality and print application diversity.
The series also includes the AccurioPress C4070 and AccurioPrint C4065, which can bridge the gap between an office and production printer with the same image quality at a more affordable price point.
Tatjana Ferguson, product marketing manager, Konica Minolta said:
“The C4080 Series is another important step in enhancing Konica Minolta’s line of colour production printers, providing an easy transition into digital printing with inline finishing options allowing prints to be boxed and shipped right off the press.
“The advanced automation, high quality and productivity, and a myriad of finishing options provide endless opportunities for printers to expand into new markets and develop new revenue streams.”
The AccurioPress C4080 runs at 81 (A4) pages per minute on thin to thick stocks between 62 and 360 gsm. It can also handle banner stocks up to 1300mm in simplex and up to 900mm in duplex at full rated speed. It can also print at 3600 (equivalent) x 2400 dpi resolution.
There are also opportunities to print envelopes on the AccurioPress C4080 without the need for an additional fuser.
The AccurioPress C4080 includes the unique, TU-510 Inline Trimmer Unit, which can trim, crease, and perforate inline.
Ferguson says this inline trimming unit means it is possible to produce fully finished output inline with additional options for inline creasing, business cards (up to 130 business cards per minute), postcard cutting and perforation (vertical and horizontal).
Other inline finishing options enable booklet making, perfect binding, punching, stapling, inline trimming, and stacking to meet customers’ needs and tap into new revenue streams.
Quality management tool
The AccurioPress C4080 Series can be equipped with Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser option. This is a fully automated, closed-loop quality management tool that performs automatic density correction and front-to-back registration prior to printing.
New to the AccurioPress C4080 Series is the external media detection sensor, an optional sensor for measuring and identifying media, ensuring the correct media settings are selected.
Together, the Inline Trimmer Unit, external media detection sensor, and Intelligent Quality Optimiser make it possible to produce fully finished, high-quality, ready-to-be-boxed output quickly and easily without the need for skilled operators. For customers, this means increased uptime, productivity, quality, and ultimately profit.
It also comes with a Line Stacker option which supports long sheet bypass and offers operators the advantage of offloading while the machine is still running.
