Auto-refining developing system
A new carrier is supplied together with the toner to refresh the carrier in the developer, stabilising the developer condition to maintain high image quality throughout the system lifetime. The longer developer life also minimises downtime.
Less human touch & less human error Intelligent Quality Optimiser [IQ-501] (optional)
The Intelligent Quality Optimiser [IQ-501] enables automated colour management and front-to-back registration adjustment. Since there is no need for measurement or numerical input, as in the past, high quality print products are constantly available with fewer manual settings and less human errors. In addition, high quality is maintained thanks to real-time monitoring and adjustments during printing, contributing not only to cost reduction with less waste but also to improve customer trust.
High-precision colour and registration adjustments prior to printing
Automated colour and front-to-back registration adjustments
Automatic adjustment of maximum density, density balance, gradation, gray balance and front-to-back registration is now realised, significantly reducing adjustment time that is an unwanted extra on net production time, and contributing to the printing operation rate, which directly affects profits. There is no need for measurement or numerical input, as in the past. The IQ-501 provides high quality print products with skill-less operation thanks to an environment that does away with quality problems caused by measurement or input errors.

As a result, colour fluctuations and registration misalignment are controlled to a minimum, which helps provide high quality print products in a stable manner. Stable results are ensured in printing of company logos for which the colour stability is essential, and cards, page numbers of booklet and ruled lines for which accurate positioning is essential. In addition, print waste caused by instable colour and registration is minimised, contributing not only to cost reduction but also to improve customer trust.
CMYK and RGB+gray(3C) are alternately printed on the margin of the printed sheets. In addition, registration marks are automatically printed on both sides of the sheet to check registration.
Linkage with cloud-based colour management system
AccurioPro Cloud Eye *Scheduled in 2018

The colour reproduction of all connected printers, of wide-ranging models, is accurately monitored without requiring special skills.
|Problems with separate colour management in each location||Lack of consistency due to differences in judgment criteria, setting methods, etc.||More total time spent communicating, managing and checking.|
|Centralised colour management for multiple locations via cloud|
Maximising the operation rate in production responds to various jobs in a speedy manner
Output speed as high as 81ppm (A4) is realised. In addition, thanks to an overall increase in production time purely for printing including adoption of a high speed dual colour scanner and decrease in adjustment time using Intelligent Quality Optimiser, contribution to high volume print jobs and shorter turnaround is enhanced.
Instantaneous power to boost productivity
High speed output capable of 81ppm (A4)
Output speed is increased by approximately 14% (71ppm » 81ppm) for A4 size and approximately 18% for A3 size in comparison to existing models.
It maintains constant speed up to 216 gsm, contributing to productivity.
* For the case of C3080
Scanning speed as high as 240 opm

*1 Optional * All capacities are calculated based on 80gsm
Curl correction function realises both quality improvement and efficient post-processing at the same time (option)
Curl adjustment without downtime
Real-time curl correction
Real-time curl correction is made possible by adding a Relay Unit [RU-518] to the system. Curl can be adjusted very precisely in 20 steps. This provides flat surface prints without interrupting print operation, and reduces the workload and waste in post-processing.
Improves workability in the post-processing
Hybrid curl adjustment
The hybrid decurling mechanism using two functions can be configured by adding a Humidifier Kit [HM-103] to the Relay Unit [RU-518] on which a mechanical decurler is already mounted in standard. The humidifying function cools down the sheet that was heated in the fusing unit, and provides moisture lost from the sheet back to reduce the stiffness for effective curl adjustment. This not only corrects the curl but also provide an expectation for removal of static electricity, which substantially contributes to the work efficiency in off-line post processing.
The replenishing water for the humidifier is easily supplied from upper part of the RU-518 during printing.
Efficient post-processing is enabled with high-spec in-line finishers (optional)
A wide range of in-line options matched to such applications as saddle-stitching, perfect binding of the thickest pages in its class and various folding functions to satisfy different needs is available.
