Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta) has launched the AccurioPress 6136P MICR, giving the 6136P product line an MICR toner and developer that it says will significantly impact the financial printing market.
“While personal checks are on the downtrend, commercial bank checks are still in high demand, with usage in financial institutions, government agencies and educational segments,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, product management and planning, Konica Minolta. “MICR printing represents a huge market with more than five billion checks printed annually.”
Konica Minolta partnered with Troy Group to help convert the AccurioPress 6136P to an MICR version through the use of Troy’s patented MICR Toner Secure with its own proprietary developer bead. The toner has been extensively tested to ABA/ANSI standards.
Troy’s MICR Toner Secure, MICR developer and MICR fonts were designed specifically for use in the 6136P printer to ensure consistent MICR quality and performance. The AccurioPress 6136P MICR helps deliver tamper-resistant MICR documents in high-volume production environment, while printing at a speed of 136 ppm. The use of Troy’s MICR Toner Secure makes toner scraping nearly impossible. Through patented security technology, red dye is released which voids the cheque if chemical alteration is attempted.
The printer can be specified to optimize print settings instantaneously, providing paper setups with each job for up to 256 media profiles. It features a 15-inch touch panel where operators can view and edit job tickets, create previews and print sample output to confirm results, allowing for output operations that are efficient and waste-free. Advanced job management support simplifies output work and reduces labour costs.
AccurioPro VDP is optional software that is available for variable data applications. The 6136P MICR production print device supports camera-based monitoring systems and document integrity software.
