Konica Minolta’s newly launched AccurioLabel 230 is being showcased for the first time at its stand C12/C19 in Hall 8 at Labelexpo Europe 2019 in Brussels. At the show, Konica Minolta is demonstrating the easy-to-operate Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 highlighting its enhanced features that helps meet the growing market needs for shorter runs and offer better customization.

Konica Minolta says the AccurioLabel 230 is a new version of Konica Minolta’s digital label press bringing important benefits for customers in terms of productivity, flexibility, stability, and cost-effectiveness. The new model looks identical to its predecessor. However, the new 4-color AccurioLabel 230 has enhancements which include more accurate print registration, a significant increase in speed, improved productivity, an option for overprinting and with no warm-up required less wastage.

The 23.4 meters a minute speed represents a 73% increase because most tack paper and films (including PP and PET) can now be printed at full speed. The press can continuously print up to 1,000 meters without requiring recalibration, with the possibility of switching between two different substrate web widths (from 250 to 330 mm). Adding this option allows the AccurioLabel 230 to print seamlessly on media with a pre-printed white background on conventional flexo. An in-built speed detector for media feeding also cuts paper wastage. The press is targeted at small and mid-range segments and is claimed to be suitable for label printers, print providers, brand owners, packaging companies and commercial printers.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
