New Konica Minolta embellishment press set for show outing
Thursday, August 11, 2022
Konica Minolta will be running live demonstrations of its new AccurioShine 3600 digital embellishment press on its stand at The Print Show in Birmingham next month.
Launched this summer, the AccurioShine 3600 is the first Konica Minolta-branded MGI product, built on the success of the MGI Jetvarnish 3D One.
The press has been designed to offer special effects for the commercial printing, finishing, and packaging industries, utilising the Jetvarnish technology including the AIS SmartScanner registration system.
“Our centrepiece will be the AccurioShine 3600, and we will take the opportunity to highlight our extensive range of print embellishment and specialist finishing products that span SRA3, B2, B1 and web as well as our B2 cutsheet inkjet and workflow solutions,” said Jon Hiscock, head of production and industrial print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK.
“The entry-level device enables users to add value to the print they produce and respond to market demand, because in order to survive and grow their customer base they need to expand their reach and products offered.”
He added: “Many are finding that it’s not enough to just offer fast turnaround, quality, and low pricing. The AccurioShine 3600 is great for adding 2D and 3D gloss effects and Digital Hot Foiling tactile finishes.
“To take it another step forward, it also supports variable data printing, to add more impact to printed products, personalised packaging, and labels.”
The 81ppm Konica Minolta AccurioPress C4080 will also be on the company’s stand at the event, feeding print to the AccurioShine 3600.
“The possibilities for expanding the device capabilities are endless as customers can fit our very advanced finishing options which are shared across the cutsheet range,” Hiscock added.
“The market is changing at pace and demands of the end user to look at sustainable print, ways of increasing the impact of print and packaging through embellishment are increasing exponentially and of course our customers still need to do more with less and drive production efficiencies through the use of Industry 4.0 innovations.
“So, this year at the show, we have decided to focus on these key topics and product areas.”
The Print Show is taking place at Hall 17 of the NEC in Birmingham from 20 to 22 September.
