01732 759725 26 WHAT'S NEW Konica Minolta’s new AccurioPress C84hc series features high chroma toner, which enables creative commercial printers to reproduce bright vivid colours even more consistently. Offering production of up to 81ppm, the AccurioPress C84hc provides wider application possibilities such as studio photos, photo books, nature photos and web-to-print orders for commercial printers, dedicated design houses, advertising agencies, corporates and brands. The superior colour gamut of the AccurioPress C84hc’s high chroma capability is maximised by using RGB images, allowing customers to experience colours reproduced with their original clarity and brightness, which the company says gives it a unique quality that cannot be replicated by other devices. Performance on the AccurioPress C84hc can also be elevated with Konica Minolta’s Auto Inspection Technology (AIT). Designed as a fully automated closed-loop inspection technology, AIT automatically inspects every individual printed sheet and makes sure that only those meeting exacting requirements are delivered. It detects any problems including dirt, substandard imagery, or incorrect page orders.

Comprehensive cybersecurity Zyxel Networks has announced the launch of its USG LITE 60AX –an AX6000 WiFi 6 security router – an all-in-one unified security gateway appliance designed for small to medium businesses, teleworkers and managed service providers. Providing uncompromising, subscription-free protection against online threats, fast WiFi connectivity and effortless cloud management, the USG LITE 60AX also sets an industry-leading standard for eco-friendliness, with a casing that is 95% made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. This delivers an 81% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to ABS plastic. Zyxel Networks has also used 100% halogen-free, soy-based inks in all packaging and with a 40% reduction in the volume of packaging used, shipment is made easier, meaning less waste and supporting businesses in achieving their sustainability goals. Space-saving industrial printers TSC Auto ID’s all-new MB241 and ML241P Series industrial printers have been purposely designed for space saving while enhancing productivity. The MB241 is especially suited to harder, thicker labels like hangtags. Its multi-point thermal printhead (TPH) pressure adjustment mechanism and its advanced heat line management ensure consistent, high quality printing across various media types. It also features a bifold media door design that reduces operational space usage by 24%, making it ideal for restricted workspaces. The intuitive design features of the ML241P simplify printing operations. Its settings are easily adjusted, including TPH pressure and ribbon tension balance, to ensure optimal print quality. And toolless removal of the TPH and platen roller expedite maintenance processes. The ML241P also fits perfectly in height-restricted environments. Both new devices support large, 8-inch OD label rolls, meaning they can not only meet daily high-volume printing demands but also improve operational efficiency as the label rolls don’t need replacing as often.
