Web-to-print and advertising giant invests in inkjet B2 press to bring down costs and grow profits
Colours Factory, Poland’s largest web-to-print company, has replaced two digital production printers with a Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 sheetfed UV inkjet B2+ press in a move that will save a significant amount of production costs this year, as well as boosting productivity.
The investment in the AccurioJet KM-1 will add further firepower to Colours Factory’s 8,000 sqm modern machine park in Pila where production capacity is over 1.5 million sheets a day. The company uses a multiple of printing technologies, including offset, digital and large-format printing, and is dedicated to the advertising industry.
The new Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 press will have pride of place in a special air-conditioned building on the park. Using energy-efficient UV LED technology and the ability to print on a wider range of normal stock paper, both uncoated and coated materials, Colours Factory is projecting to save a significant amount annually in running costs. It also expects to increase uptime by around the same amount with 24-hour production. Another important benefit is that UV printing will be a more scratch-resistant process.
Colours Factory, which also has a base in Wroclaw in Poland, operates globally. It employs 500 people staff and also has 100 qualified advertising assemblers across Poland. The company offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art products and services to customers.
