MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta), a leader in industrial and commercial printing and packaging solutions, today announced the launch of its AccurioPress 6272P press, designed to help customers rethink the possibilities of monochrome printing. Commercial printers, pay-per-print services and central in-house print operations are all primary target markets for the fully configured digital production press, which replaces the bizhub PRESS 2250P.
Based on the hugely popular single-motor AccurioPress 6136P, this flagship monochrome digital press uses dual-motor technology that can print over 16,000 images per hour (ipm). Customers benefit from the unsurpassed durability, reliability, productivity, efficiency and automation of the AccurioPress 6272P while maximizing their investment with a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to similar speed devices.
The AccurioPress 6272P prints 272 ipm duplex to meet tight print deadlines and supports a wide range of media including coated and uncoated stocks in weights from 40 gsm to 350 gsm and ranging from 3.74″ x 5.24″ to 12.76″ x 19.02″. With a maximum input capacity of 18,000 sheets and a maximum output capacity of 18,600 sheets with three high capacity stackers, the press produces long, uninterrupted print runs.
The tandem-motor combination, achieved through the Tandem Relay Unit (TD-502), delivers twice the speed and doubles the productivity in an integrated production process that delivers superior image quality and a wide range of automated features. The press uses 1200 x 1200 dpi LED printheads with technology that ensures small fonts are crisp and halftones are smooth, producing stunning monochrome text and images.
As with the AccurioPress 6136P series, the 6272P uses the CIE color space when converting color documents to black and white, creating richer gradations than conventional conversion. An independent front-to-back alignment and distortion adjustment feature ensures accurate two-sided registration for book blocks, technical documents and more. The new pass-through mode secures production in the rare event of machine error, and the standard paper cooling system allows all output to be processed offline immediately after printing.
Increased efficiency through automation
For printers looking to integrate their printing and organizations that use digital printing to produce their own publications and promotional materials in-house, AccurioPro, Konica Minolta’s suite of digital solutions for professional printing, increases the speed and efficiency, expands capabilities and services, and reduces the need for operational staff. Together, these features streamline customers’ print jobs and help increase their profitability.
A stacking unit and a wide variety of finishing options with interface to third parties such as Plockmatic and GBC, enhance the 6272P’s speed and productivity for high-demand printing environments to create quality products. impression that stand out and create added value. The press is also compatible with the IQ-501 for double-sided registration and grading management. Additionally, with the TD-502, customers can upgrade their existing AccurioPress 6136P and double its productivity compared to that of the AccurioPress 6272P.
“This launch showcases a number of Konica Minolta’s key objectives; streamline our customers’ digital transformation while rethinking printing possibilities and increasing profitability,” said Kaan Saynier, Marketing, Product and Planning Director, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. combining innovative features such as dual motor technology, best-in-class durability, efficiency and automation, all with a low total cost of ownership.
