In a first in the entire South-East Asian region, Konica Minolta has installed its state-of-the-art inkjet digital press, AccurioJet KM-1, at Chennai’s Dina Color Labs.
Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1 UV Inkjet press solution comes with a B2+ sheet-fed inkjet press, and is equipped with the company’s patented UV inkjet technology. It can print a staggering 3,000 sheets per hour in simplex mode and 1,500 sheets per hour in duplex mode, while also eliminating the need to use special digital stocks or expensive coatings.
“India, as a nation, has been moving at an accelerated pace towards its vision of becoming a digital-first economy, and the print and printing industry needs to evolve in step with the fast-changing market dynamics. At Konica Minolta, we are committed to empowering our valued clients with the solutions they need to capitalise on the massive business opportunities this shift will enable. The first India installation of AccurioJet KM-1 at Dina Color Labs underlines that commitment”, said Daisuke Mori, Managing Director – Konica Minolta India. “We’re confident that our latest hi-tech solution will help Dina Color Labs to effectively cater to new-age printing requirements in the market and undertake print jobs which were near impossible to accomplish through traditional printing technologies. Digital is the future of printing and, by installing AccurioJet KM-1, Dina Color Labs has taken a big step towards preparing itself for the new, digitally-driven paradigm,” added Mori.
Dinakaran, Dina Color Lab said, “Over time, we’ve witnessed a growing demand for short-run, print-on-demand UV printing, but there wasn’t any solution which catered to this specific requirement. Coming equipped with unique UV inkjet technology, Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 addresses this major need-gap. We are delighted with this installation, as it will not only help us optimise our current printing operations, but also enable us to explore various new printing applications to stay ahead of the competitive curve.”
