Konica Minolta (konicaminolta.com), at Labelexpo, announced a “100th customer” milestone, a strategic partnership in Europe with finishing specialist GM and the launch of a new product to underpin its accelerating growth path within industrial printing.
At the show, Konica Minolta demonstrated products and solutions that provide business efficiency and value improvement for label, industrial and commercial printing customers. The full cycle of a production of a label, from the reception of a file to the finished labels on rolls, was a key feature on the stand at the show.
At the heart of that offering, Konica Minolta formally unveiled its AccurioLabel 190 full-digital toner press that, in Europe, was developed and manufactured in cooperation with Danish company Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM). Shipping is expected to start in December. Elsewhere in the world, the winders will still be provided by established partner Miyakoshi for Konica Minolta’s label systems.
Konica Minolta’s proven digital toner-based technology for labels is used extensively at customer sites across the world. The company’s label press systems fill the gap between entry level and high-end digital printing presses. Converters benefit from its ease of operation, production flexibility, fast turnaround and variable data printing capabilities, as well as world class support and service.
The easy-to-operate Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 benefits from stable color consistency and 1200×1200 dpi offset-style quality. No pre-coating is required. The new machine for Europe comes with a web guiding system as a standard. It will succeed the C71cf – Konica Minolta’s first full-digital label press system – launched at Labelexpo two years ago. At Labelexpo 2017 Konica Minolta demonstrated the capability of the AccurioLabel 190 to work in two ways: either as inline-finishing solution together with the GM DC330Mini, as well as for the two devices to work as stand-alone solutions, fulfilling the need for flexibility that the market requires. The AccurioPro Label Impose software rounds up the offer for a fast and efficient imposition of label.
