Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. has announced the launch of the AccurioPress C6100 and C6085 Colour Digital Production Press Series featuring the new IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer and up to 400gsm stock weights “catapulting the AccurioPress series into big press applications at a small press total cost of ownership,” said the OEM. The IQ-501 optimization builds on the AccurioPress product line introduced earlier this year and delivers “world-class image quality, productivity and ease of use” in production colour digital presses – ­all at “an affordable cost” for commercial printers, CRD/ In-Plants, quick & franchise printers, and packaging print operations. Together they offer “groundbreaking standards for superior performance and unsurpassed value.”

Combined, the AccurioPress C6100/C6085 engine and IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer yield a comprehensive, automated process management system that delivers the precise colour and image quality print customers demand, yet with one-touch ease of use that yields excellent productivity and affordable labour costs.
