Like its predecessor, the Konica Minolta AccurioPress 7136 series can produce a monthly peak volume of up to 3.24 million A4 pages. It also offers the highest media flexibility in its class and enables print providers to create more business opportunities by handling a wide range of essential digital printing applications. Media flexibility and providing ultimate performance for the user is enabled by the intelligent paper catalogue and optional envelop fuser. It provides the biggest choice of media types in the market including coated and embossed paper from 40 gsm up to 350 gsm.
Input time is eliminated, and any errors are reduced by the optional IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer, which delivers automatic and real-time density and registration adjustment and creates printer profiles with skill-less operation. Curl adjustment is managed via the RU-518m Relay Unit.
High quality output, even without skilled expertise, is supported by 220 pre-uploaded paper profiles which help reduce errors and improve print quality.
Responsible and sustainable operation is assured by the achievement of the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool gold rating. The Konica Minolta AccurioPress 7136 series has also cleared Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) values for version 3.2 of the international ENERGY STAR Program by a substantial margin.
Seamless operation runnability and every day efficiency is enabled by OpenAPI that provides high scalability between Konica Minolta production printing devices, AccurioPro workflows, and third-party solutions. User friendly, scalable, and flexible print flow systems that automate and optimise a company’s entire print workflow are delivered by AcurrioPro Flux, whilst AccurioPro Dashboard securely and accurately collects, aggregates and analyses data. Accounting, authentication, or scan routing such as YSoft Safe Q and Nuance eCopy Sharescan are supported. A unified User Interface and remote panel operation help smooth set up, whilst operations can be flexibly controlled with a mobile device. Konica Minolta’s IWS (Internal Web Server) also allows the User Interface to be customised based on operator requirements while the IM-101 Intelligent Media Sensor and Integrated Colour Care Unit (ICCU) expand automation capabilities and reduce the need for skilled operators.
The highest finishing flexibility in its class is enabled by 728 different configuration possibilities. These choices include Konica Minolta’s own-developed finishing such as the innovative TU-510 inline trimming unit, which saves valuable operator time and reduces the cost of manual labour. It can slit and trim everything from small business cards to SRA 3 sheets. Its IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care unit ensures consistency and registration accuracy for every printed sheet. Konica Minolta has also established partnerships with companies such as GBC and Plockmatic.
Malcolm Smith added: “Efficient operation that minimises waste and maximises production times enables commercial printers and CRDs to ensure they are running as smoothly and profitably as possible. IQ-501 aids consistent production of perfect print while intelligent workflows can be effortlessly created. The print production process is then completed responsively by a versatile choice of high-quality finishing equipment.”
