Konica Minolta launches Accurio Press C2070 and C2060


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.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
