Konica Minolta Australia has launched the AccurioShine 3600, its newest inkjet spot UV coater that incorporates innovative varnish technology by MGI, to the local market.
The AccurioShine 3600 enables digital spot UV varnishing and digital hot foiling in a compact solution that forgoes the need for screens, plates, or dyes. The fully digital solution features artificial intelligence (AI) registration technology and an eco-friendly LED curing system.
Konica Minolta Australia production and industrial print general manager Andrew Cocker said, “The AccurioShine 3600 is a testament towards Konica Minolta’s 2023 commitment for enhancing the local production print and industrial print industries.
“As digital printing becomes more prominent in the industry, more emphasis is being placed on digitalising pre-press and post-press processes, as well as on-demand, short-run printing.
“The AccurioShine 3600 fulfils this need and is the ideal, cost-effective solution for printers to provide impactful, premium, short-run embellishments on day-to-day print jobs, adding value for their customers while differentiating themselves in the market.”
With its innovative technology and compact size, the new AccurioShine 3600 solution aims to let printers provide 2D and 3D gloss and digital hot foiling effects at a reasonable cost and without the complicated steps of conventional systems. It can be used from the prototyping stage to full production printing.
The AccurioShine 3600 also supports a large range of media sheet sizes up to a maximum of 750mm and is equipped to enhance printouts such as name cards, greeting cards, photobook covers, and packaging on demand.
It also supports Variable Data Printing (VDP) to add more impact to tickets, personalised packages and labels, invitations, and one-to-one marketing collateral, among other high visual print products.
In addition, the barcode scanner on the AccurioShine 3600 can read barcodes from a pre-printed sheet and instantly select the corresponding TIFF file already stored on the workstation. Used in combination with the VDP barcode scanner with automatic PDF file converter, the workflow is fast-tracked by transforming files from PDF to the output tray in minutes.
Cocker said, “The value the AccurioShine 3600 provides Australian printers with a range of high impact finishing effects to offer customers while delivering high-quality outputs. Printers can use this new solution to enhance their business competitiveness and meet the needs and demands of today’s printing environment”.
