Konica Minolta has unveiled the enhanced AccurioPress C14000e Series, an update to the C14000/C12000 models launched in October 2019 and which have subsequently reached more than 700 installation and produced an estimated 8.4 billion A4 sheets.

The Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000e prints at 140ppm in A4 and is 40% faster than any other toner-based device from Konica Minolta. Together with the C12000e, a second model in the series that has a speed of 120ppm, the flagship production presses were Konica Minolta’s first foray into the high-volume toner printing segment, which has seen growth rates return to virtually pre-pandemic levels.

The improvements to the AccurioPress C14000/C12000 Series follow customer feedback as Konica Minolta aims to grow its position within high production printing markets for colour toner machines.

The new features of the updated models include enhancements to colour and imaging, productivity, management and connection upgrades through the EFI Fiery Controller Version 2.1; the latest firmware with software additions and improvements including Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 AQA (auto quality adjustment), Rip, media sensor and PrintManager enhancements. These are complemented by an  expansion of paper weights, banner paper support and general improved usability, and a wide range of automated finishing options to create ready-made print products.

Malcolm Smith, category manager professional print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) commented, ‘The C14000e/C12000e presses represent another significant success story for Konica Minolta. The enhancements to the presses are helping customers to expand and streamline their businesses. This is achieved through advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints and higher productivity with tangible effects and less waste. Working closely in partnership, we are continuously helping our customers to rethink possibilities in a constantly evolving world, creating new and exciting opportunities.’
