Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 Achieve Idealliance® Certifications

MISSISSAUGA — On Sept. 2, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd., a manufacturer of industrial and commercial printing and packaging solutions, announces that its 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’ capabilities in both print production and colour reproduction according to globally recognized standards in printing and packaging.

The AccurioPress C4080 and C4070 utilize Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer’s enhanced auto inspection options, which offer expanded inspection performance, verifying print quality and detecting streaks and spots as well as blemishes. The prints mean maximum stability even during long-run jobs, while better registration and quality increases total saleable print volume.

“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) Ltd.

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.

“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.”

“Thank you to Idealliance for providing these opportunities to showcase our press performance. We are proud to partner with them to achieve these certifications and all the work they do with standards and specifications,” said Mark Bohan, Director, Colour Solutions, Konica Minolta. “The automation achieved with the IQ-501 continues to differentiate us in the market, and really gives us an edge in exceeding customer expectations for colour consistency.”
