Konica Minolta Australia showcased the new AccurioLabel 400 Press, designed for on-demand label print production with the latest in automated technology, at a launch event in Sydney on Wednesday, June 7.
The AccurioLabel 400 Press is the latest label press to be introduced by Konica Minolta in the Australian market to support the growing label production and packaging industries. It uses dry toner electrophotography, a five-colour resolution of cyan, magenta, yellow, black (CMYK) and white, and has a high maximum print speed up to 39.9 metres per minute.
The five-colour station with white toner is used in one pass when printing, widening the range of print applications while saving time, reducing costs, and improving productivity for printers.
Andrew Cocker, General Manager, Production and Industrial Print, Konica Minolta Australia, said, “The AccurioLabel 400 Press has been designed with an array of functions for unparalleled flexibility and unmatched efficiency. Some of these standout functions include intuitive touch panels, AccurioPro Flux with label impose, faster printing speed, and higher run lengths. The new label press can print on a wide range of label media and offers personalised elements at high quality, and at a faster, simplified manner.
“For Australian customers, the AccurioLabel 400 Press will be instrumental for them to tap into the lucrative short-run label market, particularly with the increased demand from businesses that develop and cater to the likes of, but not limited to craft gin, beer, or coffee as well as boutique and custom small businesses.”
The AccurioLabel 400 Press features multiple touch panel monitors in three areas on the machine and includes on-screen instructions to ensure ease-of-use for operators, eliminating the need for extensive user training. A tablet separate from the machine can also be used as the main touch panel for easy manoeuvrability when operating the press.
It boasts outstanding image quality at an impressive resolution of 1,200 x 2,400 dpi (3,600 equivalent dpi), delivering high-precision image reproduction. The inbuilt Intelligent Quality Optimiser provides colour stability, print registration and density adjustments on the fly, while also reducing set-up times. The automatic calibrations and profile creation ensures the highest colour quality during print runs and when reproducing the same print output over time.
This new label press has been designed for label production with longer run lengths now possible, offering up to 3,000 metres of un-interrupted printing.
Andrew Cocker said, “The AccurioLabel 400 Press has been designed to help printers capitalise on the latest trends in the mid-high volume customised label market. The launch of new label press is testament to the work Konica Minolta Australia is doing to ensure a profitable, sustainable future for the local production and industrial print market, helping customers expand their potential with labels, packaging, and embellishments.”
