Konica Minolta is pleased to announce that the AccurioLabel series marked another important milestone – the 500th unit shipped since launched in 2016. The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel series was designed for small to mid-size label converters by offering affordable entry to high-quality digital printing. It was developed to manage and deliver an increasing number of small to medium print jobs in ever-shorter processing time. Contrary to traditional conventional flexo and offset printing, highly flexible digital presses can process these jobs like variable data printing or numbering printing easily and efficiently.
Toshitaka Uemura, general manager, Industrial Print Business Unit, Professional Print Business Headquarters, Konica Minolta, said, “Konica Minolta entered the digital label press market in 2016 and quickly hit the milestone of 500 units sold. We drove the growth of the overall digital label press market by creating a new market of the mid-range digital label press. Last year, we had one of the largest shares of the global market. This has been achieved by widespread support from customers for the AccurioLabel series as a solution to various issues faced by the label printing industry, including the growing demand for small to medium print jobs with fast delivery.”
Uemura added, “Many label converters, which used analog printing alone, have entered digital printing for the first time using AccurioLabel. We will continue to help customers expand their businesses as their partner in the industrial printing business.”
