Aimed squarely at the commercial print market, including franchises and copy shops, and inplant printrooms, the company says it is designed for businesses looking to expand their production capabilities with advanced automation, and ease of use for various applications. It can be teamed up with the TU-510 Inline Trimmer Unit for auto finishing of a host of print products.

The AccurioPress C4080 Series has intelligent automation, image quality, and print application diversity. It supersedes the C3080 Series, and also includes the AccurioPress C4070 and AccurioPrint C4065, lighter versions of the C4080 that can bridge the gap between an office and production printer with the same image quality at a more affordable price point.

It is built on the same engine as the high volume AccurioPress C14000 Series launched last year. Konica Minolta says it is “versatile, delivers outstanding quality and performance, and is packed with an array of advanced automation features to boost productivity and expand capability".

The AccurioPress C4080 runs at 81 ppm (A4) colour while the AccurioPress C4070 runs at 71 ppm (A4) colour, and the AccurioPrint C4065 runs at 66 ppm (A4) colour. It produces 3600 (equivalent) x 2400 dpi resolution. The Line Stacker option supports long sheet bypass, and offers operators the advantage of offloading while the machine is still running.

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.”

Media versatility for ready-made print products means the C4080 Series can print on thin to thick stocks, from 62 to 360 gsm, banner stocks up to 1300mm in simplex mode, and up to 900mm in duplex at full rated speed.

The AccurioPress C4080 expands application possibilities and offers envelope printing without the need for an additional fuser. It also offers an array of versatile inline finishing options for unmatched productivity.

It comes with the option of the TU-510 Inline Trimmer Unit, which can trim, crease, and perforate inline. With this Inline trimmer unit, it is now 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.

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. According to Konica Minolta, for customers, this means increased uptime, productivity, quality, and ultimately profit.
