Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta,) a leader in digital production print products and solutions, introduced the latest generation AccurioPress color digital press, copier and scanner: the C3080 Series – which includes the C3080, C3080P and C3070. Also part of the launch is the AccurioPrint C3070L.
The predecessors – AccurioPress C2070, C2060 and AccurioPrint C2060L are no longer available. The new C3080 is a unique, groundbreaking offering that is unmatched in its scope of capabilities. It delivers everything needed in a production color press and more, including enhanced productivity, expanded print services and brilliant quality.
Unrivaled in its versatility, the C3080 series is a single digital press printer with advanced features to help businesses expand into new markets and develop new revenue streams. It provides the following enhancements:
2-sided banner printing
high productivity with speeds up to 80 ppm
real-time automated quality adjustments
The AccurioPress C3080 Series features an industry-leading array of finishing options such as full-bleed, saddle-stitched books and perfect bound books. It does it all, including punching, stapling and stacking. The C3080 utilizes award-winning IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer technology to take color consistency and registration accuracy to the next level. With highly automated image registration and color control, the IQ-501 is a closed-loop system that constantly monitors and adjusts printed output, and can automate color calibration and profiling.
Print after print, the C3080 delivers superlative image quality on thick paper (up to 350 gsm,) and embossed media and envelopes. It improves efficiency levels through:
simple setup procedures
an ultra-reliable paper path
exceptional print speed
outstanding automatic image stability for superior output and minimal waste
This all adds up to world-class productivity on every production print job.
Furthermore, the auto-duplex banner printing option allows for the production of 6-page tri-folds, brochures, book jackets, pocket folders and more. Previously, only an offset press had such flexibility.
Unlike some of its competitors, the C3080 series’ Energy Star rating ensures efficiency beyond the print floor. Plus, it has enhanced Open API and IWS applications support and is the fastest dual-color scanner on the market. The AccurioPress C3080 also provides a choice of production print controllers including Konica Minolta, Fiery and Creo.
“As the demand for production grade quality continues to accelerate, we are leveraging our own technology to disrupt the market and increase customer satisfaction,” said Dino Pagliarello, Vice President, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “In addition to the press’ IQ-501 compatibility, all the functionality and latest capabilities of Konica Minolta accessories are combined into one compact, affordable footprint.”
