Konica Minolta has added its new Auto Inspection Technology (AIT) to its Intelligent Quality Care system IQ-501. This automatically inspects each individual printed sheet and ensures that only the sheets that meet the most stringent requirements are delivered.

Konica Minolta designed AIT as a fully automated closed-circuit inspection technology. The technology checks printed sheets for, for example, dirt, incorrect page sequences and non-standard images.

Users can view AIT’s automatic reporting via a web browser. Any additional prints are also generated automatically. No human intervention is therefore required in the event of any problems.

Save costs

According to Karl-Friedrich Edenhuizen, Production Printing Product Manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, companies can achieve shorter lead times with AIT. In addition, according to Edenhuizen, operators find the system easier to use, and can free up more time for other tasks.

AIT supports production printers and all AccurioPress series finishing modules, including modules for books and brochures. The technology must increase productivity and ensure that possible crimes are kept to a minimum.

The system eliminates the need for manual inspection and manual intervention. This reduces the number of prints, allowing customers to save costs and achieve higher margins, according to the company.


AIT is part of the IQ-501 Intelligent Quality Care system. That system should bring consistency and registration accuracy to a higher level. The system uses machine automation, among other things, to save time and create extra value for print businesses and their customers.

According to Edenhuizen, AIT is a good match for this. We always want our progressive customers to get the best results with minimal effort. This technology helps them and their customers to achieve the desired results in the most efficient way and ensures that only orders that meet the highest standard leave the print shop.
