Konica Minolta has revealed important market updates for its AccurioJet KM-1 inkjet digital press, which was commercially launched at drupa in 2016. More than 30 worldwide installations have been achieved, including new ones in Europe for January and February this year.
The first installation in Poland has gone live and an announcement on a significant agreement in France is due to be made in early February. New business partnerships and branding for patented technology have also been announced as Konica Minolta continues to expand and grow market share in industrial and commercial print markets.
Dot Freeze Technology is the name for a special process for the AccurioJet KM-1 B2 press where the ability to ‘freeze’ the inkjet dot enables perfect registration of colours and image stability. Customers confirm a delta E colour shift of no more than 1.5, which happens to be a major advantage for new customers to invest in this platform.
Mark Hinder, head of market development, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe, said: ‘We are progressing significantly and meeting our sales objectives with having reached more than 30 installations worldwide. Feedback from customers using our technology has not only proved that the AccurioJet KM-1 can sustain high quality and reliability, but is also providing customers with a unique platform to grow their business.
‘This B2 digital press is becoming the Swiss Army knife of the printing world because it has so many uses. It is providing our customers with the tool helping to unlock new applications, some of which probably required many different techniques to produce in the past.’
He added, ‘Our customers never cease to amaze us with the innovative applications they develop with our technology driven by imagination to deliver more.’
