Star Offset, a label converter based in Bhiwandi, India, has installed a Konica Minolta bizhub Press C71cf.
The converter is described as a leading player in offset, narrow web flexo and allied printing activities.
The Konica Minolta press was sold by the press manufacturer’s sales partner Insight Print Communication.
Operating on dry-toner electrophotography, the bizhub Press C71cf is capable of producing a high image quality of 1200 DPI with a maximum speed of 18.9 meters/min. It can be used to print on a wide range of media – including plain paper, gloss-coated paper, matte-coated paper, synthetic paper, PP, and PET (stretched type) – and is capable of handling paper thickness of up to 176 GSM (for non-tack paper) and 256 GSM (for peeling paper).
A spokesperson from StarOffset commented: ‘We are delighted with the results that the bizhub Press C71cf has yielded for our business. The solution has seamlessly fit into our existing print set-up and has enabled us to greatly expand the scope of our operations to cater to rapidly-changing printing requirements of today.’
Sunill Thakeria, director at Insight Print Communication, said: ‘Digital production is now a every-day reality in the label printing industry, with brand managers constantly trying to stay ahead of new competitors, threat of counterfeiting and supply chain management.’
