Konica Minolta, a global major in advanced imaging and networking technologies, has added two new presses to its portfolio of advanced printing solutions—the AccurioPress C2070 and the C2060. The machines, hailed as successors to the bizhub PRESS C1070/C1060, are an ideal solution for mid-range digital color printing jobs. The press has been launched with significant upgrades and refinements as compared to its predecessors and offers complete scalability to meet the growing requirements of printing businesses and enhance productivity.

AccurioPress C2070/2060 offers advanced features and technology including high-speed dual scanning at speeds up to 240 ipm for hard-copy originals. It offers 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution with 8-bit processing for smoother, more realistic images. The press features enhanced Simitri HDE toner to offer superior half-tone and skin-tone reproduction, with biomass plant-based material to reduce environmental impact while the SEAD V screen-enhancing active digital processing system continuously maintains image stability. The press also has an Open API, offering coherent compatibility with solutions from other vendors including authentication, scan routing, accounting, Nuance eCopy ShareScan, etc.

Equipped with 300 gsm Auto-Duplex, the press can print on substrates up to 350 gsm and is capable of printing on substrate sizes up to 47 inches. Konica Minolta brings all the features of the higher production devices in their entry-level machines to enable the same features on the entry production systems. This adds to the flexibility for its customers and equips them with all the features to cater to a wide variety of needs.

“Our new AccurioPress C2070/C2060 series will enable printing businesses to tap new markets and opportunities with its industry-leading applications. The production machines offer print outputs of the highest quality and are extremely scalable for varied customer demands. We are confident that with this launch, Konica Minolta will play a pivotal role in transforming the digital printing segment in India,” says Daisuke Mori, managing director, Konica Minolta India. Konica Minolta will now brand each of its digital printing solutions as Accurio in place of bizhub, while AccurioPress will now replace bizhub PRESS for flagship digital production printing devices.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
