Konica Minolta has announced that its AccurioPress C7100/7090 sheet-fed toner presses have received FograCert Validation Printing System (VPS) certification for colour accuracy and consistency.

The 90/100ppm presses ,which were launched in June 2021, join the C14000 and C4080 series models in achieving the accreditation, which applies with both Konica Minolta or the optional Fiery DFEs. The testing process included PDF/X conformance, proofing substrate colour, gloss and fluorescence, colour accuracy, uniformity, permanence and light fastness. Other factors measured included fading, long and short-term repeatability, print rub resistance, colorimetric tone value transfer, tone value reproduction limits, image register, and resolving power and margin information.

Malcolm Smith, category manager – professional print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK), commented, ‘This certification from Fogra is more recognition of how our presses deliver consistently reliable, high-quality colour results and open up new opportunities for our customers. These presses perfectly match today’s demanding production requirements to help customers expand and create new profitable applications for their businesses.’

Achieving the Fogra standard across its AccurioPress cut-sheet range should simplify maintaining consistency of work when upgrading or adding further KM presses.
