Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc announced its AccurioPress C14000 and C12000 have earned Idealliance Digital Electrophotographic Press Certification and ISO/PAS 15339 System Certification. These certifications highlight the ability of the system to achieve accurate color management, the stability of the press over time as well as the uniformity within a sheet and through a production run. The programs consider the entire press system, including the digital front-end, print engine and paper. Konica Minolta is the only electrophotographic press manufacturer that has achieved the ISO 15339 certification.
“These certifications showcase the print and color quality that can be achieved by our customers on these highly productive presses using advanced automation to maximize production, quality and consistency print after print,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “The presses utilize the IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer, which performs automatic engine setup and front-to-back registration prior to printing. These features can all lead to increased profitability for our customers.”
Konica Minolta’s IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer’s enhanced auto inspection options offer expanded inspection performance, verifying print quality and now detecting streaks and spots as well as blemishes.
Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress C14000/C12000 and EFI Fiery Controller IC-319 configuration surpassed all Idealliance criterion, exceeding the established industry tolerances set forth by Idealliance for excellence in the areas of colorimetric, accuracy, uniformity, repeatability, durability and registration.

“Color management is not magic – it was an enjoyable experience to carry out these certifications. The automation achieved with the IQ-501 made it very simple to baseline the machine to achieve both certifications. Once the press was profiled, it was great to see the consistency within a run and between jobs over a 24-hour time period,” said Mark Bohan, director, Color Solutions, Konica Minolta. “I commend the work of Idealliance in providing these challenging programs that allow us to highlight press performance.”
