The new Accurio Press C6100 series from Konica Minolta offers cutting-edge innovation in the global printing segment, delivering professional image quality coupled with consistent productivity, without the requirement of any specialized operating skills.

The Accurio Press C6100 series comes as an end-to-end color production printing solution, offering industry leading performance with trend setting features, including auto color management; real time image correction; centralized color management as well as compatibility with numerous paper formats.

Auto color management and front-to-back registration
The automation of density adjustment, color management and front-to-back registration offered by the series eliminates time spent in making previous adjustments. As tasks including manual measurements as well as input of numerical values become obsolete, the scope of error in terms of measurement and inputs reduces drastically. The series also enables automated creation of color profiles for high color accuracy in minimal time.

Real-time image correction for uniform quality
The series also continuously monitor and rectifies gradation and front to back registration in real time without hampering the productivity one bit. The feature also improves image quality by minimizing color fluctuations, registration misalignment and other errors during printing process. It also shrinks your operational expensed by reducing.

Centralized color management for multiple locations via cloud
Konica Minolta’s cloud color management system enables centralized color management of printers at different locations (in-house offices and factories, affiliates’ facilities, etc.) via cloud.
The color reproduction of all connected printers, of wide-ranging models, is also remotely monitored in real-time without the requirement of any specialized skills.

Konica Minolta’s proprietary Screen-Enhancing Active Digital (SEAD) system, embedded in the series combines highly accurate exposure controls, precision pixel placement and advanced screening to achieve unprecedented quality and resolution. It also enables flexible processing and image smoothing control to cater to diverse needs.

Simitri HD toner
Simitri HD toner comes as a next generation 3-dimensional polymer structure, which is highly compatible with all types of media. It also expands the color gamut for superior image accuracy and offers more natural skin tones. The toner also requires less heat for fusing reducing power consumption significantly.

Thick paper compatibility
The Accurio Press C6100/C6085 series also makes printing feasible on 400 gsm thick paper even while automatic duplexing with solid stability without the loss of productivity. This enables printing businesses to expand their services including printing of thick paper tags, stand-up menus, sales promotion tools and many more.

Envelope and banner printing
A fusing unit in the series, devoted to envelope printing enables stable, high-quality printing on general-purpose envelopes with the least folding creases or dissimilarities in adhesive strip gloss.
The series also prints banners up to 1,300 mm long as well as auto duplex them up to 762mm in length with unmatched quality.

Ideal for high volume jobs
Be it a printing paper of 52 or 400 gsm thickness, the large-diameter upper fusing system and Simitri HDE toner concludes in an output of 100 sheets per minute. The large surface area of the fusing belt which is optimized for rapid and consistent thermal conduction results in outstanding toner fusion and high productivity.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
