Konica Minolta has launched, Accurioshine 3600, a simple, compact and affordable digital embellishment press that provides sensory print applications for printers of every size.
By witnessing market growth for decorative embellishment, Konica Minolta has invested in the press as part of its mission to create opportunities for printers to increase and diversify their revenue streams. Growth in the decorative embellishment area will be a real differentiator for many commercial and digital printers who will be able to charge a high margin for the service.

The Accurioshine 3600 digital print embellishment press has been designed to bring digital special effects to the mainstream of the commercial printing, finishing, and packaging industries. This new press utilizes key components of the InterTech Award-winning JETvarnish technology – including the intelligent and adaptive AIS SmartScanner registration system – and is designed for a compact, cost-effective, entry-level solution for all printers.

The small operational footprint of the Accurioshine 3600 allows printers, finishers and converters to have an in-house full production and prototyping print embellishment system without screens, dies or plates. The all-purpose patented varnish formula allows flat 2D Spot UV highlighting and sculptured 3D raised special effects on a wide range of substrate stocks and up to 450gsm, from the offset and digital inks to lamination films aqueous coatings.

The Accurioshine 3600 allows printers to generate more high-impact printed communications and profitable decorative embellishments on commercial and in-plant applications, including booklets, brochures, business cards, mail pieces, book covers, sheet-fed labels, small folding cartons, retail display signs and posters.

This expansion of Accurioshine 3600 digital print enhancement technology offers everyone a full spectrum of 2D/3D spot coating and dimensional textures. The cost-effective price point, automatic inkjet head cleaning technology, and the AIS SmartScanner intelligent registration system create a simple, convenient path for developing new digital finishing applications and diverse new application-based revenue streams.

The new Accurioshine 3600 joins Konica Minolta and MGI’s existing series of sheet-fed and roll-fed digital special effects presses, which feature 2D/3D UV dimensional textures as standalone finishing hubs for digital, offset, gravure and flexo printed materials.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
