USA • Labelexpo Americas 2018 marks another important milestone in Konica Minolta’s label business: the sale of the 250th unit of its AccurioLabel 190 full-digital toner press. Not even one year ago, at Labelexpo in Brussels, Konica Minolta announced a “100th customer” milestone for its label press, as part of its accelerating growth path within industrial printing.
The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 was designed to target small to mid-size label converters by offering affordable entry to digital printing. It was developed to manage and deliver an increasing number of small to medium print jobs in ever-shorter processing times. Contrary to traditional conventional flexo and offset printing, highly flexible digital print can process these jobs easily and efficiently.
The flexible system for fast delivery of short and personalized jobs, runs coated, uncoated and textured paper and film. Running at speeds of up to 18.9 m/min (62 fpm), the 1200 dpi web-fed solution for label printers incorporates an intuitive screen for set up so there is no need for extensive user training. It ensures tasks that would be time-consuming on analogue machines are fast and accurately executed.
For the EMEA market, the line has been launched (for Europe) at Labelexpo Europe 2017. AccurioLabel 190 has been developed and manufactured in cooperation with Danish company Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM), which is supplying its DC330 mini converting unit as an in-line option or as a standalone unit. Outside of Europe, the winders for AccurioLabel 190 will still be provided by established partner Miyakoshi – this was announced by Konica Minolta a year ago (September 2017).
