Monotone orders Konica Minolta C14000
Hobart operation Monotone Art Printers ordered a new high-volume Konica Minolta C14000 digital colour print system from the stand at PacPrint, to join its digital fleet.
Stu White, production manager, said, “We wanted the higher speed and the higher productivity. We are expanding, and we seeing more work coming from offset to digital. The new printer will enable us to produce high quality work at a greater rate.”
The company will replace an older press with the new C14000. White says, “We chose Konica Minolta because we know the build quality, we know the print quality, and we know the quality of service we receive.”
Monotone Art Printers is a 109-year-old print company based on the Emerald Isle, it has 13 staff, and White says it offers a broad range of services to direct and trade customers.
“We run sheetfed offset and digital equipment; we do trade finishing, folding and binding for other printers in Hobart, as well as laminating. We’re pretty much a one-stop shop,” he says.
The new Konica Minolta C14000 was supplied through local dealer Winc, with Ben Machin heading up the deal.
The C14000 prints in CMYK at up to 140ppm A4, or 80ppm A3, with a resolution that the company says is equivalent to 3600 x 2400dpi. It has enhanced media capability up to 450 gsm, and a printing speed 40 per cent faster than the firm’s existing toner devices.
The new C14000 detects paper types automatically. It has inline trimming, slitting and creasing for full-bleed output, with simplex banner printing up to 129.5cm and duplex banner printing up to 90cm. The TU-510 Versatile Trimmer Unit also means the press can finish business cards inline.
