NextPrint is installing two Konica Minolta AccurioPress C3080 digital presses, as it aims to lower production costs and add finishing options.
The company is based in Castle Hill, Sydney, and advertises packaging, foiling, die cutting, training manuals, promotional POS, and brochures on its website.
Andrew Bellchambers, managing director, Next, says, “The Konica Minolta machines have better features than our previous digital presses, as they include a booklet maker, banner printing duplexed, creasing and all-round better software.
“The new C3080s will cut down on a lot of outside finishing. They also have a better click rate than our previous presses, so overall will make for better production at a better cost.
“I started NextPrint eight years ago. Coming from a litho company I needed to keep up with technology as digital was affecting the A2 litho market.
“There is only the two of us at Next. Bianca is my printer and design manager and I do everything else from quoting to die cutting.
“I have been in the industry for over 40 years and have seen a lot of changes in that time. As printing is a very competitive industry you need to keep up with the changes in equipment to stay in the race. I am hoping changing over to Konica will do this.”
Grant Thomas, product marketing manager, Konica Minolta says, “With high print speeds of 81ppm and a massive 4399 A4 sheets per hour or 2113 SRA3 sheets per hour, the C3080 will manage those print deadlines with ease. Its 18,000 sheet maximum media capacity allows for long uninterrupted printing”
"The C3080 has a 3600 x 1200dpi print resolution with 8-bit processing which produces smooth, superb colour reproduction."
