Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) earns a Buyers Lab 2021-2022 PaceSetter in Production Print Applications: Output Variety award from Keypoint Intelligence, an independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services.
Based on research conducted in the North American market, this award celebrates OEMs that best support their customers on reducing costs and/or increasing business based on different printing applications. Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1e LED UV Inkjet Press was specifically recognized for its ability to print on diverse substrates.
Being able to print in a larger variety of substrates increases the number of applications a print service provider can produce and sell. According to feedback from Keypoint Intelligence, the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1e with UV inks enables users to print on an array of media that other cut-sheet technologies cannot. Greeting cards, gift cards, hotel room keys and even ID badges can be printed on texture film or PVC. Other applications could be printed on synthetics, PET adhesive, polypropylene and polyethylene.
“Art applications printed on canvas sizes up to 23 x 29.5 in. can be output on the KM-1e,” said German Sacristan, director of on-demand printing at Keypoint Intelligence. “Additionally, the KM-1e has an offline laser-cutting system specifically built for the B2+ sheet size that is capable of producing different types of sleek finishes. Also important is that Konica Minolta supports its customers’ success with business development and a customized professional service program.”
“The AccurioJet KM-1e is a key part of our strategy to enable our customers to grow their businesses and maximize their workflow efficiency leading to higher and sustainable long-term profitability,” said Bill Troxil, senior vice-president, industrial and inkjet printing, Konica Minolta. “This recognition from Keypoint Intelligence affirms our leadership position in the North American marketplace with our LED UV inkjet technology and finishing solutions, and we are proud to receive this honour.”
