The AccurioLabel 190 succeeds Konica Minolta’s first digital label press C71cf. At Labelexpo, Konica Minolta demonstrates the new press to work either as inline finishing solution with the GM DC330Mini or the two devices work standalone. The machine is powered by Konica Minolta’s AccurioPro Label Impose software.
Konica Minolta also announced the milestone of 100 customers in the world for its label systems.
