Konica Minolta AccurioPress 6136

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. today launched three new monochrome production print  systems, the AccurioPress 6136, AccurioPress 6136P, and AccurioPress 6120, all of which are available immediately, and which it says address continuing demand for black-and-white production printing.

The AccurioPress 6136 series prints at up to 136 ppm, and, for the first time in a monochrome digital press, uses the Konica Minolta IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer. Its fully automated, closed-loop image-quality-management system is said to provide consistency with automated image-density control and accurate front-to-back registration adjustments.

The series is designed for professional print providers and central reprographic departments (CRDs), including those in law firms, financial institutions, and non-profit organizations. Konica Minolta says the new production printers provide versatile media handling as well as entry-level and professional document finishing, and integration with industry-standard workflows ensures.

The AccurioPress 6136’s key features include:

  • Monthly duty cycle of over three million pages.
  • Digital monochrome printer with print and copy output of 136 ppm.
  • Fully automated, closed-loop image quality management system provides consistent quality with automated density control and accurate front-to-back registration adjustments.
