Konica Minolta Business Solutions Middle East and its Saudi Arabian distributor Hoshan group have installed a range of equipment including an MGI JetVarnish 3DS, AccurioLabel 230 and AccurioPress C 6100 at Riyadh-based Mahara Printing.

Mahara Printing is based in Al Malaz, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and is owned by Mohamed Al Shamari.  

Nayyar Ansari, marketing manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions for the Middle East, said: ‘The full machine setup is a combination of production print, label, and embellishment. Accuriopress C 6100 is KM’s high-end digital production printer for short run commercial applications. Accuriolabel 230 is KM’s digital label solution for short run labels. It is a perfect complement to flexo, providing additional business opportunity by covering those areas of short-run labels which are not possible to achieve on flexo.’ 

The MGI Jetvarnish 3DS adds value to print by creating digital embossing and other tactile effects as well as holographic effects and inline digital foiling. These effects are achieved in a single pass without needing a screen unit to produce tactile effects and without needing a die for foil. The high build-up to 232 microns can be achieved by multiple passes through the machine.  

Production speeds are up to 2,100 sheets an hour, although this will vary depending on the varnish height required.
