Konica Minolta Recognised for AccurioPress C6100

| 31 October 2017

During the Konica Minolta European Leadership Campus, where senior executives hosted more than 1,000 retail partners from 53 countries, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe was presented with an award by Keypoint Intelligence and Buyers Lab International (BLI). The event was hosted in Berlin, Germany, for dealers and distributors from Europe and Central and Middle East Asia.

BLI and Keypoint Intelligence are the global document imaging industry’s insight and resource organisations for unbiased and reliable information, test data and competitive selling tools. Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C6100 was awarded BLI’s 2018 PRO Award as Outstanding Colour Mid-Volume Production Device with Fiery IC-315EFI Controller.

This recognised excellent, consistent image quality, superior productivity, media handling flexibility and outstanding job management capabilities. The digital production machine delivers on all fronts for users looking to maximise uptime.

In its report, BLI highlighted the new automated capabilities that come courtesy of the Integrated Colour Care Unit (ICCU), which is located directly after the engine assembly in the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6100. It includes a front and page sheet scanner and colour spectrophotometer. A key differentiator compared to other automated systems is that the ICCU can conduct automatic adjustments in real time during print runs rather than as a manual intervention process in features such as gradation, maximum density adjustments, front-to-back registration, media profiling and greyscale balance adjustment.

David Sweetnam, Buyers Lab’s Director of Research and Lab Services for EMEA/Asia, said, ‘Superior productivity and media handling and high-quality and consistent output distinguish the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6100 from the pack in the ever-competitive and growing mid-volume production colour space. Over the course of its testing, the device proved it can capably and quickly handle almost any media size and type thrown at it up to 400gsm.’

Charles Lissenburg, general manager of Konica Minolta Europe’s Professional Printing Division, said, ‘The BLI report stated that the AccurioPress C6100 has taken Konica Minolta’s capabilities to new territories and has set some new benchmarks. The award recognises our continuous development of world-class products, software and services within our important growth markets.’

He added, ‘We were extremely proud to accept this prestigious award at our European Leadership Campus. Dealer relations are of key importance to Konica Minolta. This is why we host such a summit where our sales experience the new products and services in person, as well as share in our successes.’
