Usability

Streamlined operation improves the workflow

User-friendly operation increases output efficiency, especially when the optional print controller IC-604 is employed to optimise the workflow for even higher output and improved colour management.

Colour management utility

Color Centro

Color Centro includes Exact Color colour management software that enables high-precision 3D colour calibration superior to that of conventional 1D calibration. Editing can be performed and settings can be made for colour verification, G7 calibration, ICC profile creation, etc. without using a PC.

■High-precision spectral densitometer

Konica Minolta’s high-precision spectral densitometer FD-5BT*1 can be used to perform tasks such as ICC profile creation and calibration.
It can also be used as a standalone densitometer with a display in the CTP room. Auto scan spectral densitometer FD-9*1, a higher end product, can also be used with the C6100 Series.

Seamless offset printing connectivity

JDF compatibility

Thanks to compatibility with JDF, a standard format for the display and transfer of jobs between printing processes, the operator can use familiar CTP workflow RIPs such as APOGEE, EQUIOS and Prinergy*1 for a hybrid workflow with a seamlessly connected offset printer. Digital printing thus becomes an offset printing option that enables more flexible handling.

Maximum environmental consideration

Ecological design

■Energy savings

Energy use is minimised by highly efficient Simitri HDE toner and an optimised transfer process that enables low fusing temperatures. Resources such as paper and toner are also efficiently used.

■Eco materials

The C6100 series is constructed using a higher percentage of recycled resins, bioplastics and other eco materials. A lead-free shaft is also adopted to protect the environment and user.
