In little more than a year since its worldwide launch, Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C7100 cut-sheet toner production press has captured another important accolade – a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2022 Colour PRO Award from Keypoint Intelligence, the independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software, and services.
A “brilliant” performance press under exacting testing conditions, the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C7100 with EFI Fiery IC-319 Print Server was named Outstanding Mid-Volume CMYK Production Device during Keypoint Intelligence’s latest round of BLI 2022 PRO Awards. It follows on from the TÜV Rheinland certification that incorporates respective national and international coveted standards for child-safe toy safety, awarded last year.
Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C7100/C7090 toner press series, which was launched in June 2021, runs at 100/90ppm. A range of technology and software innovations help customers to focus on agility, expansion, and operational efficiency. Print Service providers benefit through advanced automation, fewer human touchpoints, and improved total cost of ownership (TCO).
“In a teeming market, we are very pleased to show how brilliantly this press performed to win one of our BLI 2022 Colour PRO Awards,” said David Sweetnam, Director of Research & Lab Services EMEA/Asia at Keypoint Intelligence. “We use an algorithm across multiple test attributes to judge overall performance. The devices must deliver at a very high level in the first place to even be eligible for a PRO Award, so it’s not just a case of being best in category.”
Malcolm Smith, Category Manager of Production & Industrial Print, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd stated, “It fills us with pride that Keypoint Intelligence has made this award for our AccurioPress C7100 press after stringent testing conditions and evaluation. We also see this as recognition of our vision and dedication on delivering customer value through great products, software, and services. At Konica Minolta, we are constantly rethinking print and aim to build the future together with our customers”
