Konica Minolta, in digital label production, celebrates the 1000th installation shipment for its AccurioLabel toner digital printing press less than seven years after entering the labels market. The technology pioneer’s high-quality platform continues to set the benchmark for the digital production of labels and packaging as sales continue to accelerate.
Only two years after announcing the 500th installation, the digital toner-based presses continue to break ground and have helped Konica Minolta to a top 33% brand market share in labels worldwide. This confirms the company’s successful track record of working ever more closely with its customers to drive digital transformation and bring more print possibilities to life.
The AccurioLabel presses offer an affordable entry to high-quality digital printing. They are originally targeted at small to mid-size label converters but are now more widely accepted by various label converters including large-size. The highly flexible systems were developed to manage and deliver an increasing number of small to medium print jobs in ever-shorter processing times. A touch panel monitor enables intuitive operation and is easy to use for operators, eliminating the need for extensive user training. Tasks that were time-consuming on analogue machines can be performed quickly and accurately in delivering stable printing quality.
“The market-leading brand in India for digital printing recognition and 1000th shipment of the AccurioLabel presses announcement are important milestones as we continue to accelerate our labels business,” said Kuldeep Malhotra, deputy managing director, Sales and OP Marketing Division, Konica Minolta. “We are constantly rethinking possibilities and have serious plans to grow our labels business”.
“Opportunity is everywhere. Working closely in partnership, we are helping customers to ignite print possibilities in a sustainable way through injecting new-found creativity in their continued digital transformation.”
