What you see is what you print…Konica Minolta’s latest AccurioPress delivers on sRGB

| 22 November 2018

Konica Minolta has found the secret to printing a huge proportion of the sRGB colour range with its latest generation of High Chroma toner, enabling it to reproduce more accurately in print the colours that graphics professionals are looking at on calibrated screens.

The Konica Minolta AccurioPress C83hc uses the fourth generation of Konica Minolta’s High Chroma toner. Due to the selectable print mode, customers can print colours in sRGB and CMYK. The transformation from sRGB to Konica Minolta’s CMYK is outstanding. What you see on your screen is what you print. Operators will adore the reproduction of skin tones and pantone colours, can provide today’s standard applications and extend their print portfolio with extraordinary applications as higher quality service to gain better profits as a result.

Graphics professionals today are facing more communication channels than ever, with print, augmented reality, online and mobile all at their fingertips. Getting consistent colours across all these channels has proved to be a major challenge. Now Konica Minolta’s breakthrough will allow the closest match of brand colours yet between these physical and electronic media. Photo quality printing with high colour saturation and sharper colour reproduction is possible with the AccurioPress C83hc, along with superior spot colour reproduction compared to standard CMYK.

In addition, this latest High Chroma toner technology provides a number of environmental benefits, as it requires a lower fusing temperature than conventional toners while also producing fewer CO2 emissions.

Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C83hc includes the Integrated Colour Control unit, IQ-501, which maximises production time through features such as automatic front-to-back registration and automatic creation of printer profiles. Real-time monitoring during the print run enables adjustments on the fly, helping to reduce waste and cost. The AccurioPress C83hc is compatible with media up to 350gsm and has an air suction system for reliable feeding of thick paper. Paper length compatibility is extended to 1300mm, which means that banner printing can be added to a print provider’s service offering. The auto-duplex printing capability applies for sheets up to 762mm.

The increased paper capacity of up to 15,390 sheets from 11 paper sources makes it possible to run production over night without somebody being there.
