Auto colour management and front-to-back registration (optional)
Optional Intelligent quality optimiser IQ-501 continuously monitors and adjusts colour and front-to-back registration during printing. So materials are produced with consistent high quality, less manual adjustment and no need for special skills.
When registration accuracy is critical

- Shop cards
- Page number positions when bookbinding, etc.
When colour reproduction is critical
- Apparel catalogues
- Product catalogues
- Company logos, etc.
▶ Higher productivity and less manual adjustment
Greater output and shorter turnaround
Auto colour and front-to-back adjustment before printing
Automation of density adjustment, colour management and front-to-back registration reduces time previously spent making adjustments. Since tasks such as manual measurements and input of numerical values are no longer necessary, there are fewer measurement and input errors. Colour profiles can also be created automatically to achieve highly accurate colour matching in less time.
Stable quality made fast and easy
One-step auto adjustment
Common settings such as maximum density, density balance and gamma adjustment are automatically adjusted in a single step to save time and raise accuracy.
One-step auto adjustment
Real-time image correction for consistent quality
Real-time gradation and front-to-back registration adjustment
Gradation and front-to-back registration are continuously monitored and corrected in real time with no loss in productivity. This feature improves image quality by minimising colour fluctuations, registration misalignment and other errors during printing. It also lowers costs by reducing paper waste.

Highly efficient scanning
High-speed duplex scanner PF-711 *optional
The high-speed duplex scanner is ideal for law offices, educational establishments and others that need to scan and store large volumes of documents as data. It reads 75 colour or 80 monochrome pages per minute*1 with high reliability thanks to a built-in high-speed double-feed detector.
*1: A4, 300dpi (duplex scanning of 150 colour pages or 160 monochrome pages
▶ High productivity and quality irrespective of paper type
Paper position correction for every thickness
Rotary-type high-precision registration
An advanced registration unit improves front-to-back registration for duplex printing. Its paper angle detection sensor detects angles of the leading edge of the paper immediately after passing the loop rollers. The rear and front loop rollers can be driven independently to change speed and correct the angle. The result is improved front-to-back registration of a wide range of paper types and high-quality finishing of items such as booklets with photo spreads.
Curl correction and static elimination
Hybrid decurler *optional
Optimum paper curling correction can be realised by combining relay unit RU-511/518*1, which employs a standard mechanical decurler ideal for coated sheets, with optional humidifier kit HM-101 for uncoated sheets. The degree of decurling can be adjusted manually and responds flexibly to changes in conditions.
