Konica Minolta Australia has announced the launch of its industrial print offering into the New Zealand market.
Because it is a major growth area, Konica Minolta has invested heavily in the technology, products and strategic partnerships that have helped bring this offering to the market. To support this, Konica Minolta Australia has sourced the people and expertise to back it up.
Visiting New Zealand this week are David Cascarino, national manager for Industrial Print at Konica Minolta Australia and David Procter, sales director, Konica Minolta Australia.
Cascarino says, “Industrial print is a specialist area that requires expertise and a different set of skills. Because of the investment Konica Minolta Australia has already made in this space, it makes sense that we expand this offering into New Zealand.
“Our focus is on helping our customers grow by opening up new opportunities and revenue streams to help them service their customers in different and better ways. Offering industrial print products to commercial printers in New Zealand will afford them the same opportunities.”
At the recent PacPrint tradeshow in Melbourne, Konica Minolta Australia introduced key products such as the flagship AccurioJet KM-1 B2 Inkjet Press and MGI embellishment products.
David Cascarino says, “We discovered a strong interest from New Zealand commercial printers for the technology on display, which has also driven us to make this leap.”
Procter adds, “Building on the success of industrial print in Australia will help our New Zealand customers adopt this new technology with confidence, and take advantage of these exceptionally innovative and differentiating products.”
The company lists its key products in the industrial print offering:
•       The AccurioJet KM-1 B2 Inkjet Press. The AccurioJet KM-1, a sheet-fed UV inkjet press, delivers all the quality and versatility of offset printing with the convenience and flexibility of digital printing on any type of stock. New applications made possible by the KM-1 include packaging, personalised packaging, niche marketing with specialty stocks, and more.
•       MGI JetVarnish EVO & iFoil. The MGI JETvarnish 3D EVO has been specially designed to offer digital and offset printers a highly-accurate UV spot coating system with iFoil embellishment. This adds value to the printed sheet and offers a highly sought-after sensorial raised print that is only available with the MGI 3D JETvarnish system.
•       C71cf label press. The bizhub PRESS C71cf is ideal for label printers who are looking to shift volumes from conventional presses to digital so they can deal with shorter print-run lengths, requests for faster delivery times, personalisation and versioning, and producing on-demand runs.
•       MGI Meteor Unlimited Colours. The Meteor Unlimited Colours is the first all-in-one digital inline toner printing and hot-foiling solution that can create unlimited metallic colours. This effect can be achieved by blending the CMYK toner and taking advantage of the reflective qualities of foil.
