Konica Minolta showcasing the full production workflow at Labelexpo

Langenhagen, Germany | 5 July 2023

Konica Minolta has unveiled more details on its presence at Labelexpo in Brussels, Belgium, from September 11-14 where it will showcase important new developments that will enable converters to ignite more possibilities in labels and packaging, two of the biggest growth markets in printing.


On its stand (C21/22, Hall 8), Konica Minolta will be presenting state-of-the-art software and service capabilities, as well as latest hardware solutions, all built on global expertise and local delivery. Developed with Danish-based Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM), Konica Minolta will be showcasing the full production workflow for the label converting and packaging industry.
 
Labelexpo will be the platform to present the AccurioLabel 400 single-pass digital press to a broad, global audience – launched just nine months ago – that brings a new level of enhanced print quality for converters, as well as benefits such as running cost reductions and the ability to expand applications with white toner. The toner press offers improved productivity with superfast print speeds of up to almost 40 metres per minute. It is available in 4- and 5-colour configurations.

On our Konica Minolta and MGI Digital Technology Industrial Print stand we showcase end-to-end Industry 5.0 Ecosystems with partners like ePS, OneVision, IIJ, GM and more. To enable our customers to produce variable data printing with high visual impact labels we combine from pre-and post-press solutions that we can provide as turnkey offerings. The AccurioLabel 400 will be among five running systems for Konica Minolta, European market leader and multi-award winner in digital label press systems. Another involves the toner-based entry-level AccurioLabel 230 press being configured with GM’s DC330Mini, connected in-line with the label press. This exhibit will also include an innovative and state-of-the-art inkjet customisation project in combination with partner Industrial Inkjet Ltd (IIJ).

MGI’s JETvarnish 3D Web Compact and Octopus Web machines, together with Konica Minolta’s PKG-1300 – designed for corrugated manufacturers, converters, printers and brand owners looking for short-run digital inkjet box printing - will complete the hardware line-up.

As part of showcasing the full label production cycle, Konica Minolta’s comprehensive software suites – including AccurioPro Flux and AccurioPro Dashboard – and service capabilities will be spotlighted, together with partner solutions.
