UK-based Superfast Labels has installed the AccurioLabel 230 toner press from Konica Minolta to answer the growing demand for shorter lead times and further boost its efficiencies.
The company made its decision very following successful print trials at Konica Minolta’s UK showroom in Sutton-in-Ashfield and a visit to an existing customer.
Andrew Miller, managing director of Superfast Labels, explained: ‘We presented the team at Konica Minolta with some highly challenging test files and the press passed with flying colors, so it was an easy choice to make. The installation only took three days, followed by two days of training, and we have been producing jobs for our customers every day since. Three digital presses are now on site allowing continual production across a wide range of substrates, and when combined with a fleet of GM finishing equipment, we are ready for 2020.’
‘With their expertise in digital, it didn’t take Andrew and the team at Superfast long to release just how well the AccurioLabel 230 would complement their existing production capability,’ commented Steve Lakin, label press sales consultant at Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK. ‘This isn’t just a label press for new entrants into digital, it’s a robust and reliable machine that can compete on quality with any of the high-end presses.’
‘We are extremely pleased to welcome Superfast Labels to the ever-expanding family of AccurioLabel press owners,’ added Jon Pritchard, industrial print business unit leader at Konica Minolta Business Solutions UK. ‘This is a great endorsement by a major printer in the digital label market. Their investment in the AccurioLabel 230 shows that the press has the potential to offer a high value-add digital label solution to any label printer, no matter what size.’
