Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000 wins BLI 2021 Pro Award from Keypoint Intelligence

Konica Minolta is proud to announce it has received a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021 PRO Award from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading and independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services.

Keypoint Intelligence has awarded the AccurioPress C14000 with top honours in the Outstanding High-Volume CMYK Production Device High-Volume Category. This annual award has identified the AccurioPress C14000 as a trailblazer in the Mid to High volume Digital Production market.

‘Konica Minolta’s innovative IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care Unit 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 key technology innovation noted by Keypoint Intelligence that separates the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000 from its peers is the new 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 pleased to have made such a successful entry into the high-volume toner printing segment with the C14000 Series, affirmed by this honour from Keypoint Intelligence,’ said Edoardo Cotichini, Senior Manager Professional Print, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe. ‘The IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care Unit is our differentiator in the market and allows us to take colour consistency and registration accuracy to the next level for our customers. We are tremendously proud to be recognised for this technology.’
