Flash Reproductions of Toronto, Ontario, has installed the first Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 inkjet press in Canada. The B2+ inkjet press will be used to provide short-run flexibility given Flash’s strong position with creative agencies and graphic designers.

The AccurioJet KM-1 prints with a 23 x 29.5-inch sheet size, allowing for 6-up full bleed letter-size printing at 3,000 pages per hour. The press also prints on 17-pound vellum up to 24-point stock weights, without any pre-coating necessary. It can handle a range of traditional offset litho stocks, as well as textured, synthetics and canvas materials. It features automatic perfecting and duplexing up to 18 point and cures work immediately by running UV ink.

“We’re obsessive about print processes and if there is a new way to print or even a new twist on an old process, we find it and research it,” said Rich Pauptit, President, Flash Reproductions. “To put it simply, I believe the KM-1 will allow us to offer what everyone wants. The best quality, in the shortest time, at a budget conscious price.

“Our research and investigation has resulted in all the experts at Flash uniformly agreeing that this is the machine we have been waiting for. We’re ready and excited to dive in,” continued Pauptit. “I truly think that we will look back at the install of this machine as the day that everything changed. I’m not foolish enough to claim that I can see the future, but I’m smart enough to keep my eyes open while it’s happening.”
