Konica Minolta announced two of its high-speed color digital printing systems, the AccurioPress C14000 and C4080 Series, have earned international FograCert Validation Printing System certification. Fogra, a research institute in Germany for media technologies, recognizes print production systems that demonstrate commitment to ISO standards, based on measurable criteria.
Fogra found that the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000 and C4080 Series ‘fulfill all criteria of this program in the tested configurations.’ The presses are now certified when running the optional EFI Fiery, or Konica Minolta controllers.
The Fogra accreditation follows testing in various printing conditions covering a wide range of capabilities. These included PDF/X conformance, proofing substrate color, gloss and fluorescence, color accuracy, uniformity, permanence and light fastness. Other factors considered were fading, long and short-term repeatability, print rub resistance, colorimetric tone value transfer, tone value reproduction limits, image register and resolving power and margin information.
“At Konica Minolta, we develop products that help customers generate new revenue streams in order to keep pace with continually changing market requirements. In fact, over the last 18 months we have completely updated our entire color cut-sheet portfolio,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning. “These independent certifications confirm the devices we are bringing to market not only offer state-of-the-art technology, but the best print quality and repeatability available in the industry.”
