Konica Minolta has introduced a new addition to its product line-up – a MICR version of the AccurioPress 6136.
“While personal checks are on the downtrend, commercial bank checks are still in high demand, with usage in financial institutions, government agencies and educational segments,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “MICR printing represents a huge market with more than five billion checks printed annually.”
Konica Minolta partnered with TROY Group to help convert the AccurioPress 6136P to a MICR version, combining TROY’s patented MICR Toner Secure with its own proprietary developer bead. The toner has been tested to ABA/ANSI standards.
“Through our partnership with Konica Minolta we are setting the standard in production check printing solutions for anti-tamper payments,” said Michael Riley, executive vice president/general manager at TROY Group, Inc. “We recognized the market need for a production solution to fill a void in the secure payment printing space. The AccurioPress 6136P MICR leverages Konica Minolta’s long history of print innovation and introduces TROY’s patented, MICR Toner Secure technology.”
Konica Minolta said the biggest benefit of the AccurioPress 6136P MICR print solution is its print speed of 136 ppm and unique TROY MICR Toner Secure. The toner – engineered exclusively for the 6136 Konica Minolta engine – maximizes readability and makes toner scraping nearly impossible. Through patented security technology, red dye is released which voids the check if chemical alteration is attempted.
The printer can be specified to optimize print settings instantaneously, providing efficient paper setups with each job for up to 256 media profiles. Its 15-inch touch panel makes operating easy and affords greater visibility and operability. Operators can view and edit job tickets, create previews and print sample output to confirm results, allowing for output operations that are efficient and waste free. Advanced job management support simplifies output work and reduces labor costs.
Optional software available is AccurioPro VDP for variable data applications. The 6136P MICR production print device supports camera-based monitoring systems and document integrity software to ensure every piece prints in order.
