Konica Minolta shows inkjet samples at North Print

By 18 May 2013

Konica Minolta showed samples of the latest output from its KM-1 B2 inkjet press at North Print & Pack, and has confirmed the press will be on show at Ipex 2014.


The KM-1 was first shown in concept form at Drupa 2012. It uses Konica Minolta’s own UV inkjet technology, and a press chassis from Komori.

The upgraded version can print on thicker stock of up to 0.6mm thickness when simplex printing. The earlier version’s maximum was 0.45mm, which remains the limit when in perfecting mode.

The 1,650sph press can also print onto difficult substrates, such as textured grades.

Konica Minolta held a number of high-level meetings with potential customers for the press at the show. The next public outings for the KM-1 will be at the Print 13 show in Chicago in September.

Konica Minolta is also set to be the largest exhibitor at Ipex 2014.
