Superfast Labels enhances digital print capacity
Kent based Superfast Labels has chosen the Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 230 toner press to bolster its digital armoury. The new press will enable the company to address increasingly shorter lead times and further boost its efficiencies.
Founded in the early 1990s, Superfast Labels first entered the digital label market eight years ago with an inkjet press. Having expanded and upgraded the digital department since then, it is known for its fast turnaround, most often shipping out printed labels in less than 48 hours from receipt of artwork.
The innovative company wanted to invest further in digital print technology to add speed and improve efficiencies. After surveying the market, it chose the AccurioLabel 230 press.
The company made this decision very quickly following successful print trials at Konica Minolta’s UK showroom in Sutton-in-Ashfield and a visit to an existing customer. Managing director Andrew Miller explained, ‘We presented the team at Konica Minolta with some highly challenging test files and the press passed with flying colours, so it was an easy choice to make. The installation only took three days, followed by two days of training, and we have been producing jobs for our customers every day since.’
He added, ‘Three digital presses are now on site allowing continual production across a wide range of substrates, and when combined with a fleet of GM finishing equipment, we are ready for 2020.’
