With the optional IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser, input time is eliminated, and potential errors are reduced. It delivers automatic real-time density and registration adjustment, creating printer profiles for easy operation.
High quality output is supported by 220 paper profiles pre-uploaded which help reduce errors and improve print quality, all without requiring manual intervention by a specialised operator. This means anyone can operate the AccurioPress 7136 Series with just a touch.
Responsible and sustainable operation is assured by the achievement of the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool gold rating.

It can slit and trim everything from small business cards to SRA 3 sheets. Its IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Optimiser unit ensure consistency and registration accuracy for every printed sheet.
Ms Teh Hui Ying added: “Efficient operation that minimises waste and maximises production times enables commercial printers to ensure they are running as smoothly and profitably as possible.
