Ramsey, NJ (Feb. 27, 2024) — Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. Inc. (Konica Minolta) is pleased to announce the availability of the Plockmatic MPS XL, a multi-purpose stacker capable of stacking a wide range of media sizes, from 8.27×8.27″, up to sheets as large as 13×51″ (Konica Minolta Color Engine maximum sheet size). This long-sheet stacking greatly expands the banner-stacking capabilities of the company’s AccurioPress color production machines. Equally beneficial, the Plockmatic MPS XL Stacker for Konica Minolta has the ability to dock and undock from the production press system. A stacking table that can be operated while undocked from the press – when connected to power – provides easy lifting, transportation and managing of heavy paper stacks. The MPS XL Stacker connects to the Konica Minolta Large Capacity Stacker LS-507 to stack large volumes of long sheets – as well as standard-size sheets – and is equipped with multiple sensors that can detect jams and stack capacity limits, which will trigger a soft stop within the printer. This integration and automated communication conveniently allow operators to pause and resume jobs directly from the stacker control panel. The MPS XL Stacker is currently compatible with the Konica Minolta AccurioPress C14000, C12000, C7100, C7090, C4080 and C4070 digital production presses. The new stacker is rated for a maximum load of 88.2 lbs. or a maximum stack height of up to 6.9″ for sheets under 28.1″, and up to 5.5″ for sheets 28.1″ or longer. This capability allows for stacking functionality that not only matches true production quantities, but also presents a solution for the transportation and lifting of heavy stacks of paper. The MPS XL Stacker also pairs well with the Plockmatic SD-435/450 booklet makers. With both of these systems having the ability to undock from the LS-507, customers have the unique capability to swap between the two, allowing them to match changing production demands with an appropriate finisher. Whether utilizing the MPS XL Stacker for expanded high-capacity flat sheet stacking, or swapping to the SD-435/450 to meet booklet making production, customers now have more ways to easily diversify and expand their current production capabilities. “With the extended range of paper sizes for stacking and the ability to easily dock and undock from our AccurioPress production printing devices, plus the flexibility of adding the LS-507, our customers can quickly switch from printing large volumes of flat sheets to making booklets,” said Dino Pagliarello, senior vice president, portfolio management and planning, Konica Minolta. “The Plockmatic MPS XL Stacker offers another way to easily diversify and expand current production capabilities. Our continued partnership with the Plockmatic Group for inline finishing and with Morgana for offline finishing further differentiates our finishing options across Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress color and mono production machines to meet all the finishing needs of CRDs and commercial printers.” Learn about all of Konica Minolta’s industrial and commercial print solutions online. ### About Konica MinoltaKonica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A.
