Konica Minolta Unveils AccurioLabel 190

Konica Minolta Unveils AccurioLabel 190
The AccurioLabel 190 full-digital toner press has been developed and manufactured in cooperation with Danish company Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM).

The machine was unveiled at the recent Labelexpo. Konica Minolta’s AccurioLabel 190 will replace the bizhub PRESS C71cf, a system that has been sold already to over 100 companies across the globe since being launched two years ago. Building on this success, GM is supplying its DC330 mini converting unit for the AccurioLabel 190 press, which can work in-line with the machine or as a standalone unit.

The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 system benefits from stable colour consistency and 1200 x 1200dpi offset-style quality. No pre-coating is required. The new machine comes with a web guiding system as a standard. Converters benefit from its ease of operation, production flexibility, fast turnaround and variable data printing capabilities, as well as world-class support and service.

Edoardo Cotichini, team manager industrial printing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, said, ‘The reaction from visitors was fantastic and demonstrated there is a strong need in the market for our offering. The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 has been introduced after further large-scale screening of the market. We have listened carefully to customer feedback, which has really helped shape our ideas and thinking.’

Konica Minolta’s proven digital toner-based technology for labels is used extensively at customer sites across the world. The systems are provided locally, along with delivery of parts and consumables. Outside of Europe, the winders for Konica Minolta’s AccurioLabel 190 will still be provided by established partner Miyakoshi.

Leon Minnie, production print manager at Konica Minolta South Africa said that the company is excited about the launch of the new machine, which is expected to enter the South African market in March 2018.
