Toy safety recognition for Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000

Langenhagen, Germany | 1 February 2022

Konica Minolta has achieved the coveted international child-safe toy certification for its AccurioPress C14000 high speed production press after rigorous paper testing lasting almost two weeks.


Awarded by TÜV Rheinland, the AccurioPress C14000 underwent a series of tests in Cologne and Nuremberg in Germany to achieve the accreditation, which also incorporates the respective national and international standards for toy safety. It confirms that the press meets defined criteria and safety.
 
TÜV Rheinland represents safety and quality accreditation in virtually all areas of business life. It is a trustworthy system of test mark validity, reference and proof certification.  The award-winning Konica Minolta C14000 met TÜV Rheinland’s proof criteria for toy testing. The specific categories are EN 71-3 and EN 71-9 for toy safety.
 
Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000, which was launched two years ago, prints at 140 pages per minute (ppm) and is 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 new certification comes a year after Konica Minolta won the “Good Design Award 2020” from the Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP) for the AccurioPress C14000 Series.

AccurioPress series boasts unparalleled efficiency in high-volume printing with: the ability to print 140 A4 sheets per minute at 2400 dpi; the industry’s first automatic pre-print adjustment and print quality inspection functions; and media sensor that lets users know the optimal print settings. These innovations enable printing companies to not only minimise wasted time but also hire operators from diverse backgrounds without special skills.
Karl-Friedrich Edenhuizen, Product Manager Color Devices, Professional Printing Group, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, said: “We are delighted and proud that our AccurioPress C14000 flagship press has achieved this third-party child-safe toy international accreditation. The machines are perfect examples of how all our machines are incredibly versatile and have so many different uses across so many sectors.
