Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 400 digital label press receives double industry recognition

London, UK | 1 June 2023

Konica Minolta’s AccurioLabel 400 high speed single-pass toner press has collected two coveted industry recognitions. The press, the first high-end model in the AccurioLabel series of digital label printers, has received an iF Design Award 2023 and a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2023. Both acknowledge improving operational efficiency by automating the printing process.

The iF International Forum Design is the world's longest running independent design organization. Every year it selects outstanding designs and this year more than 11,000 applications were received from 56 countries and regions.
The Red Dot Award is one of the world’s largest design competitions and the Red Dot Label has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after marks of quality for good design.
In both cases the judges commended Konica Minolta’s AccurioLabel 400’s design that eliminates the need for special skills and reduces downtime through operability. It also does not require a specialised license and automatic colour correction technology.
These latest accolades follow the receipt of the 2022 Good Design Award, sponsored by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.
The AccurioLabel 400 from Konica Minolta was first unveiled in May last year. It achieves unprecedented operational efficiency even in the high-volume area through high-speed printing, extended continuous printing length, and process automation.  As such it aims to capture a significant share of a fast-growing mid- and high-volume sector that has an estimated 3,000-plus label converters.
Significant features include the ability to expand applications with white toner and improved productivity with superfast print speeds of up to 39.9 metres per minute. There are also further running cost reductions thanks to even more durable parts life, as well as enhanced print quality. It is available in 4- and 5-colour configurations.

We are delighted that the combination of features and benefits of the AccurioLabel 400 continue to gain industry recognition. The awards success confirms our belief that the press brings another level of opportunity to enable print transformation in mid- and high-volume production markets for forward-thinking label converters and helps them to ignite more print possibilities.

“The accreditations further demonstrate why it is an exciting option for existing and new customers who are already developing their label production and packaging expertise. They reinforce how the press’s workflow, software and process automation, and cloud solutions, enable forward-thinking label converters to increase their levels of production possibilities and move closer towards smart factory operation.”
