Konica Minolta is running an online showroom and a number of web sessions at virtual.drupa, providing updates on its production and industrial machine portfolios, embellishment, software, consultancy, and services; all through the lens of rethinking print possibilities.
The company has taken to the online tradeshow to demonstrate its web-to-print solution with AccurioPro Flux, AccurioPress C4080 Series, and C14000 Series toner cut-sheet devices, together with Konica Minolta’s sophisticated range of inline finishing systems.
Konica Minolta followed up this demonstration with a deep-dive into workflows for the AccurioJet KM-1e UV inkjet colour production press, the successor to the AccurioJet KM-1, which was formally launched at drupa in 2016.
The AccurioJet KM-1e combines the print materials and stability characteristics of offset presses with the benefits of the latest digital technology. It has zero make-ready requirements, making it ideal for printers looking to respond quickly to urgent jobs.
The AccurioJet KM-1e offers high quality print resolution at 1200 x 1200 dpi, and 3,000 B2 sheets per hour simplex, support for a wide range of print materials, and the largest sheet size in its class at 585mm x 750mm. It boasts superior stability with absolute consistency in paper feeding, registration, image quality, and repeatability, and doesn’t require specialist print material.
The AccurioJet KM-1e is ideal for variable data printing applications, delivering image quality, colour gamut, and glossiness to rival offset presses.
Konica Minolta production and industrial print general manager Sue Threlfo said, “The Australian print landscape was challenged by the events of 2020 and getting back to normal is no longer on the agenda.
“Instead, Australian print businesses face an exciting opportunity to create a new normal, revitalising the industry and their organisations for a brighter tomorrow. Doing this effectively requires a focus on automation and efficiency, as well as a deliberate and sustained shift to digital.”
In addition, Konica Minolta spotlighted its highly successful AccurioLabel 230 toner label press, which has more than 700 installations around the world.
“At virtual.drupa and beyond, Konica Minolta has a sustained focus on helping customers to digitally transform so they can operate more efficiently and cost effectively. We are also focused on helping Konica Minolta clients identify and leverage new business opportunities among existing customers, attract new customers, and increase profits,” Threlfo said.
“At virtual.drupa, Konica Minolta showcased the advanced software and hardware systems that will help printers achieve these goals.”
