“Since partnering with Konica Minolta to supply the AccurioLabel 230 and AccurioLabel 400 digital presses, we have sold a number of these market-leading solutions to customers, all backed up by Konica Minolta’s class-leading service and support.”

David Lee

Focus Label Machinery Ltd’s Company Director

David added, “With a considerable market interest in short run, high quality label solutions, these presses have already proven to be popular, so much so that we have also installed our own demonstration system so we can enable customers to have a one-to-one hands-on demonstration with us and the Konica Minolta team.”
Along with Konica Minolta’s digital AccurioLabel presses, Focus Label Machinery’s demonstration centre also includes a high-spec PROFLEX 330SE flexo press with various options, the dFlex inkjet Hybrid press, a Reflex 330 Digital Finishing System, and an assortment of label finishing solutions. Jon Pritchard, Label, Packaging, and Inkjet Consultant at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd also commented, “For commercial printers looking to get into labels, this is one of the only centres in the country that has all the technologies and experts on hand to demonstrate a number of complementary technology options together, with full scope for scalability and customisation, all in one place. As a UK manufacturer with full UK support in its own right, and an expert in its own field for more than 40 years, Focus Label Machinery has a wealth of experience and expertise, along with long standing relationships with label printers across the UK, which means it is perfectly placed to help educate and advise commercial printers on the best solutions and technology combinations for their needs.”
