Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 high-speed digital presses have earned Idealliance Digital Electrophotographic Press Certification and ISO/PAS 15339 System Certification.

These certifications demonstrate the devices’ premier capabilities in both print production and colour reproduction according to globally recognized standards in printing and packaging. This is the second time this year Konica Minolta has achieved Master status for ISO/PAS 15339 System Certification (CRPC1-CRPC6) and Digital Electrophotographic Press for its latest range of production presses.

“At Konica Minolta, we continually innovate and strive to improve quality and services available to clients to support them on their profitability journey. In the last 18 months, we have completely upgraded our production print press portfolio and further solidified our commitment to the market,” said Mario Mottillo, president, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada). “Our revolutionary IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer has been a central differentiator in the industry, ensuring consistent colour quality and front-to-back registration for every print in real-time. It removes the need for recalibrations or mid-run inspections.”

According to Idealliance, the AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 are all-in-one print manufacturing powerhouses, providing features to streamline workflow and print output that will exceed customer expectations.

Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 and EFI Fiery Controller IC-319 configuration surpassed all Idealliance criterion, exceeding the established industry tolerances set forth by Idealliance for excellence in the areas of colourimetric, accuracy, uniformity, repeatability, durability and registration.

Idealliance certifies that the AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 have the capabilities to meet the colour space requirements specified by the Characterized Reference Print Conditions (CRPCs) of ISO/PAS 15339 at much tighter tolerances than those for G7 certification. Konica Minolta has earned Master status, capable of achieving six of the globally recognized ISO/PAS 15339 Reference Print Conditions.

“Successful completion of both programs is a proven demonstration of the AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 to achieve standards of print production, and colourimetric reproduction for all digital print technologies,” said Jordan Gorski, executive director, Idealliance. “Konica Minolta continues to maintain their status throughout the industry, especially for print service providers looking to meet the most stringent demands set by print buyers and brands in printing, packaging and graphic communications.”
