Konica Minolta creativity will help shape customer thinking at Hunkeler Innovationdays

Konica Minolta Europe’s presence at Hunkeler Innovationdays will provide another important platform to showcase latest developments in digital printing technology in hall 1, booth B5 at Messe Lucerne, Switzerland, from 25 to 28 February 2019.

The creativity and power of digitally enhanced print, as well as live-running systems, will also be a key part of Konica Minolta’s customer-centric approach over four days at the exhibition that focuses on high-performance technology in digital printing and finishing from major suppliers across the globe.

On the stand will be the highly successful AccurioLabel 190 digital label press that, in Europe, was developed and manufactured in cooperation with Danish company Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM). This all-in-one digital toner press with integrated web guiding system, quality control area with viewing lights and possibility to connect to in-line finishing equipment now has over 250 installations across the globe since Konica Minolta entered the label market in the autumn of 2015.

Another highlight will be live demonstrations of the fourth generation AccurioPress C83hc cut-sheet print engine using Konica Minolta’s high chroma toner, which produces photo quality printing with high colour saturation and sharper colour reproduction. This includes the Integrated Colour Control unit IQ-501 which maximises production time through features such as automatic front-to-back registration and automatic creation of printer profiles.

Konica Minolta Europe’s Head of Market Development Mark Hinder will show latest print samples from the AccurioJet KM-1 B2+ UV inkjet digital cut-sheet press. This incorporates a new UV ink, high-performance inkjet heads and system processing technologies together with unique Dot Freeze Technology™. Known as DFT, it has overcome one of the fundamental challenges of inkjet printing – uncontrolled ink dot movement that reduces print quality and workable materials.

Konica Minolta’s print embellishment offerings will also be showcased on the booth, in addition to customer success stories. Impressive print samples with tactile and shining effects from machines such as the MGI JETVARNISH 3DS will be on display to the audience.

Charles Lissenburg, General Manager, Professional Print Division, Konica Minolta Europe Business Solutions, said: “Printers today require ideas and business tools to help them capture these new market opportunities and grow their profitability. At Konica Minolta we have made a commitment to supporting these critical demands, anticipating customer needs in advance, and turning them into innovative solutions through a collaborative, partnership approach, which we believe sets our customers off on an ideal strategic and technological footing for success. Our mission is to help customers show the potential of digital printing and embellishment to produce the highest results and increase productivity and profitability.

Hunkeler Innovationdays is another important platform for us to showcase our industry-leading capabilities as we continue to move forward and grow our presence within professional print and industrial markets. However, it’s not just about the technology and software. Consultancy, customer testimonials and other presentations will also feature at the event.”
