Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) wins the Buyers Lab 2021 PRO Award from Keypoint Intelligence, an independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services. Granted annually, these awards acknowledge the products that gave the best performances in production field testing over the previous year. Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000 with EFI Fiery IC-319 Controller took top honours in the Outstanding High-Volume CMYK Production Device High-Volume Category and was identified as a trailblazer in the digital production marketplace.
“Konica Minolta’s innovative IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer has impressed us since its launch, allowing for quick, best practice colour setup and media-registration profiling, with inline checking and adjustment tolerances controllable by the operator,” said David Sweetnam, director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services at Keypoint Intelligence. “This technology helped the device deliver an outstanding performance over our production-length tests where, over 67,000 clicks, the device never drifted above DeltaE00 3.4 nor did it exhibit an image-registration shift of more than 0.3 mm.”
Another technological feature noted by Keypoint Intelligence is the TU-510 Versatile Trimmer Unit. This inline, four-edge trimmer and creaser allows full-bleed finishing support for banners, booklets, direct mail and a dedicated business card cutting option.
“We are extremely proud to have received this honour from Keypoint Intelligence featuring the C14000 Series, our entry into the high-volume toner printing segment,” said Mario Mottillo, president, Konica Minolta. “The IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer is our differentiator in this market and delivers streamlined operator time, reduced print waste, and industry-leading productivity to our customers.”
