Konica Minolta is nearing 200 European installations of its AccurioPress C14000 machines, only eight months after sales started.

Unveiled across the world a year ago, the heavyweight production press prints at 140ppm and is 40% faster than any other toner-based machine in the company’s arsenal. The landmark 200th installation will be completed within a matter of weeks, although customer details have not been revealed.

The C14000 and sister model the AccurioPress C12000, are Konica Minolta’s first foray into the high-volume toner printing segment.

‘We are a recognised leader in print transformation and have been recognised as a pioneer for well over a decade by setting new standards,’ said Edoardo Cotichini, senior manager professional print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. ‘Working with our customers in a collaborative approach, we are delighted to have continued to accelerate our growth in commercial and industrial printing markets, despite the challenging conditions in a worldwide pandemic. Our mission is to help our customers reach the next level in the digital maturity of their organisation.’

Product manager, Karl Friedrich Edenhuizen, added, ‘The C14000 Series are another success story for Konica Minolta. The presses are helping customers to expand and streamline their business through advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints and higher productivity with tangible effects and less waste, plus a lower total cost of ownership.’
