“Buyers Lab’s PRO awards celebrate the ‘best of the best’ of what we test over the course of a given year in the production segment,” said David Sweetnam, Keypoint Intelligence’s Director of EMEA/Asia Research & Lab Services. “Based on the high marks that the AccurioPress 6136 and the AccurioPress C3080 delivered in critical areas such as job management and media handling, along with other strong results, it’s clear that both models are two of the best production devices we tested in the last year.”
Konica Minolta has been recognized as a leader in the print and label production industry for many years.

The digital presses recognized by Buyers Lab for a 2019 PRO award is further evidence of these achievements, and reinforces the value proposition the company brings to the printing community. Each press chosen for this award brings a wide range of capabilities, but some topline facts and figures include:
