As the market for digitally printed packaging and labels continues to expand, driven by factors such as customisation and regionalised products, Konica Minolta leverages its reliable dry-toner technology platform. The company is positioning the C71cf as a mid-range option that fills the gap between entry-level and high-end systems.

“The C71cf stands apart with its ease of use, coming as a perfect printing machine for the short-run requirements of labels to complement their offset process. We are excited to introduce the new, economical and productive digital press for the label industry,” said Yoshinori Koide of Konica Minolta India.

The C71cf incorporates the dry-toner electro photography printing mechanism, offering full CMYK support. The machine also offers an impressive printing resolution of 1,200 dpi, equivalent to 3,600 dpi and can print images with a maximum size of 1195x320 mm.

The machine is compatible with multiple file formats including PDF, PS (APPE compatible) and 8bitTIFF and can seamlessly perform printing operations at speeds of up to 18.9 metre per minute, depending on the paper type. It also supports a paper width of 330 mm and prints a maximum image width of 320 mm, ideal for medium sized printing businesses with diverse client requirements. It uses low-temperature fusing technology and Simitri HDE toner, and can print on a wide range of materials including polypropylene and synthetic paper.
