Indian converter Hora Art has installed an AccurioLabel 190, Konica Minolta’s first roll-to-roll digital label press installation in the country.
Pradeep Hora, managing director and Sanjay Hora, director, Hora Arts, said: ‘We wanted a digital label printing solution which could seamlessly cater to our various small-lot printing requirements. The AccurioLabel from Konica Minolta is perfectly suited to our business needs and allows us to deliver superior quality prints at fast speed, with better overall productivity and profitability.’
Ashok Sethi, EGM PP & IP sales, Konica Minolta Business Solutions India, said: ‘The growing demand for differentiated labels and packaging options has made it necessary for print and printing businesses to look beyond the conventional and towards more advanced, future-ready solutions. The installation of AccurioLabel 190, our first roll-to-roll label printing installation in India, follows close on heels of its India launch and is proof that the print and printing market is ripe for disruption through technological innovation.’
The AccurioLabel 190 from Konica Minolta uses dry toner electrophotography to deliver high-quality images. It ensures extremely accurate image processing and formation for industrial printing requirements.
The AccurioLabel 190 operates at per-minute speeds of 18.9m, 13.5m, and 9.45m, depending on the paper type. It can handle a wide range of media such as ordinary/matte paper, glossy paper, tack paper, synthetic paper, and film with paper thickness of 60-250 micron and maximum input width of 330mm.
The AccurioLabel 190 is equipped with advanced color adjustment software, allowing it to deliver consistent, stable and superior quality output from sample production to actual production.
The installation was followed by an inauguration event at the venue on August 9, 2018, attended by Vijay Kamat, product manager IP, and Shayak Mukherjee, business consultant R2R.
