MISSISSAUGA, ON (October 2, 2018) – Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) today announced that during Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc.‘s recent appearance at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago, the company secured the 250th sale of its AccurioLabel 190 full-digital toner press. This achievement marks a 150 percent increase in sales over last year as less than one year ago, at Labelexpo in Brussels, Konica Minolta proudly announced a “100th customer” milestone for its label press.
The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 was designed with small to mid-size label converters in mind and offers an affordable entry-point into digital printing. It was developed in response to market demands for a device which could manage and deliver small to medium print jobs in short processing times, while still maintaining the flexibility and ease of use that comes with digital printing. The AccurioLabel 190 delivers outstanding output quality, is efficient and easy to utilize and is highly compatible with many of Konica Minolta’s post-production finishing solutions.
Toshitaka Uemura, General Manager, Industrial Print Business Unit, Professional Print Business Headquarters, Konica Minolta, Inc. said, “The rapid expansion of the AcurrioLabel 190’s market share indicates that label converters have come to regard the device as a solution to today’s key market challenges - specifically the demand for small to medium print jobs with fast turnaround times. This highly flexible solution allows operations to deliver high quality results quickly, efficiently and profitably.”
The highly flexible system for ‘on demand’ jobs runs on coated, uncoated, textured paper and film. The device runs at speeds of up to 18.9mpm, at 1,200 dpi and allows for high quality output and high precision of 256 gradations. Konica Minolta’s 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 executed quickly and with precision.
Toshitaka added: “We are delighted that the AccurioLabel 190, with all its carefully selected performance capabilities, is resonating strongly with label producers. Customers wanted a device that could repeatedly deliver high quality output over numerous print runs, and we feel we have given them that and more.”
