EFI has made its Fiery FS300 Pro digital front end platform available for the Konica Minolta AccurioPress line of digital presses.
John Henze, vice president of marketing at EFI Fiery, says, “Bringing the Fiery FS300 Pro platform to AccurioPress users provides an even stronger foundation for users to offer high-quality, fully personalised print to advance their communication products.”
The company says its new Fiery digital front ends support Konica Minolta’s innovative IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimizer with Integrated Colour Care Unit, which allows operators to scan colour patches and registration marks in-line for one-touch automated closed loop colour control and front-to-back registration from the press panel.
Using EFI Fiery Colour Profiler Suite colour management software, the Fiery DFEs with supported Konica Minolta engines can be G7 calibrated and matched to Gracol Colourspace compliance or Fogra PSD level A for the PSO Coated/Fogra 51 reference. The Fiery Colour Profiler Suite also supports many spectrophotometers, including the Konica Minolta FD-9.
Two of the updated products, the EFI Fiery IC-313 external and Fiery IC-417 embedded DFEs, support medium-volume and driver-based workflows, respectively.
The third updated product, the EFI Fiery IC-315 external DFE, supports AccurioPress C6100 and C6085 models. It features EFI’s NX Premium hardware platform offering a sleek, modern design and enhanced performance, and includes Fiery QuickTouch software for faster views of job status and easier device management. Designed to handle challenging, complex and high-volume jobs such as variable-data work, it includes Fiery Hyper rip enhancements that can process jobs up to 55 per cent faster, performing parallel ripping on multi-page jobs.
EFI adds that all these Fiery products help users create end-to-end workflows with the integration to EFI MIS/ERP and Web-to-Print products.
