| 20 October 2016

Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe GmbH has today opened a new Digital Imaging Square (DIS) at its European headquarters in Langenhagen, Germany, further underlining its commitment to customers in the professional and industrial printing markets. The new centre of excellence gives customers a hands on experience through live demonstrations.

Nearly 20 systems and several complete workflows make up the 550 m2 showroom. The Light Production room has entry level production printing, including wide format products. The successful bizhub PRESS series will be at the heart of the Mid Production Print showcase, while the Industrial Print room will house the bizhub PRESS C71cf label press and the AccurioJet KM-1 B2+ UV inkjet press, as well as MGI products.


Important step forward in Europe

Indy Nakagawa, President of Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, says: “We are very pleased to open our new DIS this week. Our management philosophy is the creation of new value. This time we are adding new values such as industrial printing solutions to our professional printing business. In this industry, we have developed a strong presence over the past years.” He continues: “DIS is a space we share with our customers, who can test and prove their applications with our solutions so that they can turn their innovative ideas into reality and generate new value for their clients.”


Workflows in a living environment

Complete workflows cover label, commercial and industrial print markets, as well as wide-format solutions. Highlights of Konica Minolta’s broad portfolio also include partner products and solutions from other major players such as EFI, MGI, KIP, as well as finishing options from Plockmatic, Watkiss and SDD.
