Investment in AccurioLabel 190 key to the Cotswold Labels' growth plan

Cotswold Labels is on a path of expansion and digital transformation. Wanting to respond to current market trends and take on more customers, it is now expanding its capabilities and accelerating production with the investment in an AccurioLabel 190 toner press from Konica Minolta, complemented by a DC330 converting unit from GM.

Challenge

In 2011, the company invested in a small four-colour digital print and finishing combo was brought in from a US supplier, with the aim of printing those shorter run jobs that the company’s flexo presses couldn’t produce profitably. Those first stepping stones into digital provided the company with some very valuable lessons, but as demand continued to grow, the need for more capacity and consistent, high print quality became more urgent.

Solution

The Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 toner press was chosen after Cotswold Labels had surveyed the market for some time looking for that perfect combination of high quality and affordable investment. “The quality of the print was one of the
main drivers for the purchase, along with the ability to print onto standard facestocks, without treatment or special finishes. Image quality is outstanding for a machine at this price point,” says Howard, Managing Director, Cotswold Labels.

Some of the benefits of the AccurioLabel 190:
• Ease of operation
• Low maintenance
• Reliability
