The importance of being a market native in industrial printing

Scroll down 

Deep trusted relationships, with mutual understanding, are important in any industry. But we believe they’re even more vital in industrial printing, as it’s shaped by two significant characteristics: comparatively high, long-term capital expenditures and increasingly fluid market structures with changing customer needs.

Ever-increasing speed to market means faster printing times for packaging, marketing materials and labels. Individualisation and consumer targeting lead to evershorter runs. And a desire to make print materials stand out in a saturated world accelerates the need for speciality substrates, like plastic and embellishments.

Yet the need for cost efficiency remains high. And the importance of having a partner that truly understands your business – a true industry native like us – is growing. Outstanding consulting and a genuine partnership dialogue are now just as important as providing immaculate printing solutions.

No matter what changes or threats come your way, we’re your stable partner for both pro-active protection and overcoming acute incidents.

This close, open and trusting relationship not only benefits our customers. It also benefits us, as their experiences help to further optimise our products and services.

How do you commit to a long-term machine investment in a market that is as dynamic as industrial printing today? Three things. Invest in your operational and product portfolio flexibility. Fully understand your customers’ needs and business to provide them with a tailored solution for tomorrow’s business. And choose a partner that truly understands your business and stays by your side.

Cutting-edge print technology

The AccurioJet KM-1 delivers stunning colour and print accuracy through HS UV ink, Konica Minolta’s 1800i inkjet heads and patented Dot Freeze Technology. You can gang up jobs and print on a wide range of substrates without pre-treatment of paper.

The AccurioLabel 190 full toner label press provides offset-quality results with no pre-coating required; this is a real unique selling point, offering something new to the mid-market industry. With over 100 installations of its predecessor, the bizhub PRESS C71cf, the AccurioLabel 190 has really hit the spot.

We offer print embellishment through our strategic partnership with MGI – from UV spot varnishing and hot foil applications (through the MGI JETvarnish 3DS and the B1-version MGI JETvarnish 3D Evolution) to digital label and flexible packaging production in roll-to-roll operation through its MGI JETvarnish 3D Web.
