Konica Minolta announced the launch of its new high-volume toner print series at PRINTING United last week.

Konica Minolta has entered the high-production print equipment sector

The new AccurioPress C14000 series is described as Konica Minolta’s “first foray into the high-volume toner printing segment” and was announced during a live broadcast to the trade show audience in Dallas, Texas.

The C1400 prints 140 pages per minute in A4 and the firm also claims its to be 40% faster than any of its previous toner-based devices. The C12000 prints 120 pages per minute at the same print quality.

Konica Minolta says the presses will help customers to expand and streamline business through “advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints and higher productivity”.

Since 2015, the AccurioJet KM-1 inkjet press has been the firm’s flagship production model and the AccurioPress C6100s series for mid production print has acted as a solution for a highly responsive print room environment.

The similarities in quality between traditional offset and what we can do with toner is astonishing, and we have worked very hard to get here

This is the first time Konica Minolta has produced a toner-based high production print product and the firm says it will “cover the gap” between these two products in the high production print market.

Olaf Lorenz, general manager of DX Branding Division at Konica Minolta, comments: “This is an extremely important global initiative for Konica Minolta, especially significant because we are not currently known for toner-based high-production print equipment.

“We are entering the high production print segment with a really high-quality press. The similarities in quality between traditional offset and what we can do with toner is astonishing, and we have worked very hard to get here.”
