Konica Minolta Opened Digital Imaging Square, an Industrial Printing European Showroom in Bratislava

| 4 December 2019

Konica Minolta opened the latest showroom focusing on all its main industrial printing technologies in Slovakia. On a total area of 480 m², a unique space in terms of complexity in equipment, software solutions, printing substrates and workflows was created.

The ambition of the new Konica Minolta showroom in Bratislava is to run a strategic printing centre focusing on printing of high quality demo prints for all Konica Minolta branches across Europe, while organising presentations of respective technologies for the Central, South and Eastern European branches. A unique space has been created where fully integrated sophisticated software solutions meet traditionally high-quality printing technology.

20 latest technologies

To ensure highest print quality, the showroom provides ideal conditions throughout the year in terms of stable temperature, good lighting or optimal air humidity. Over 20 diverse technologies are located on an area of 480 m². The highlights include the AccurioJet KM-1 and MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution, which represent the world's most advanced printing and processing trends. According to Konica Minolta, their goal is to create a creative print gallery, where affiliates and their clients have the opportunity not only to see the devices at work, but also to experience first-hand the possibilities of extraordinary processing of print materials.

The opening ceremony took place from 5 to 8 November 2019 with the participation of Konica Minolta’s European President and other top European representatives of Konica Minolta. The opening days were attended by more than 100 selected managers, business partners and specialists. Konica Minolta wants to make the most of the new generous premises. “We will regularly organise a variety of events and reinforce our existing good relationships with professional printers and partners. Together with our other divisions, we would like to make the showroom a space where every visitor gets a complete and comprehensive overview of our services, facilities and solutions. From improving everyday business processes, digitising, professional printing to innovative and creative packaging and product labelling,” notes Pavel Ucen.
