Konica Minolta Europe announces Sales Milestone for C14000 Series

| 17 November 2020

Award-winning systems helping customers expand business through automation and a partnership approach

Konica Minolta is close to its 200th AccurioPress C14000 Series installation in its European territory only eight months after sales started. Unveiled across the world a year ago, the device prints at 140 pages per minute (ppm) and is 40% faster than any other toner-based machine from Konica Minolta.

Together with the AccurioPress C12000, a second model in the series that has a speed of 120 ppm, the award-winning flagship production presses are Konica Minolta’s first foray into the high-volume toner printing segment.

The landmark 200th installation will be completed within weeks, although details remain confidential. The announcement has been made shortly after Konica Minolta won the “Good Design Award 2020” from the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP).

The citation described the sophisticated design of the AccurioPress C14000/C12000 digital printing systems as “befitting for these flagship models, which ensures high performance and quality required for printing and motivates users to expand their print business”. Standout points of the systems also included the paper feed and delivery units, providing a sense of uniformity, and the overall exterior design. Toner bottles are arranged vertically within the machines and have large handles, which reduces the workload for operators.

“While incorporating automation technology that boosts quality and productivity, these systems only occupy the same footprint as their predecessors,” it read. “The higher print quality, faster printing speed, less manual intervention and greater ease of use also enhance the efficiency, quality and quantity of commercial printing.”

The AccurioPress C14000 Series is also part of Konica Minolta’ mission to support the transformation of its companies by sector and industry, predicting potential challenges and creating solutions together.
