Inkjet Printers are Revolutionising Print Management Across Industries
In our digitally advanced world, enterprises work hard to meet the ever-changing demands of consumers and create more avenues for revenue generation. Similarly, products and services in the print industry have gone through numerous advancements that can benefit businesses across industries. These include lowering the cost of printing by shortening turnaround times and expanding the possibilities of printing on different materials and surfaces with inkjet printing.
The value of inkjet printing is poised to grow exponentially from 2021 to 2026, marking a time of peaks in the industry. As the demand for printing shifts during the digital transformation, Konica Minolta seeks to offer businesses across industries more functionality and capabilities with our Inkjet printers. More specifically, the AccurioJet KM-1e, which offers high productivity with a short turnaround time along with various other benefits.
- Driving Businesses to Rethink Printing Processes
With its unparalleled versatility and compatibility, the AccurioJet KM-1e offers innovative features that streamline printing management processes for industrial printing purposes. If expansion is on the horizon for your business, our inkjet printers are fully integrated with technologies that support media transport systems similar to offset press.
The UV ink and inkjet head unique to Konica Minolta’s line of inkjets enables printing on a wide variety of media without the need for pre-coating. It is also able to produce high-quality prints without damaging the paper since our ink is cured by UV light and almost no heat will be generated in the process. With less heat used, heating and cooling time is also shortened, further decreasing turnaround times.
The integration of the newest printing technology also allows it to deliver impeccable operability for efficient workflow with IJ Manager, the enhanced data processing system that comes with the printer. In fact, users in Europe saw an overall increase of 60% in inkjet volumes on the AccurioJet KM-1e in 2019 alone.
Along with the combination of Konica Minolta’s print head, UV ink and the inline sensor for consistent print results, business expansion or transitions will go smoothly without a hitch.
- Providing Unlimited Print Services
Businesses with in-house printing capabilities will definitely benefit from the AccurioJet KM-1e’s latest technological functions, which include printing on a wide range of substrates such as transparent, metallic, coloured material, and more with our revolutionary UV ink. This is made possible by our newly adopted media sensors that also enable prints on varied media thickness, ranging from 0.06mm to 0.6mm, as well as sizes, with stellar colour consistency.
In addition, with its unique UV ink technology, there will be no worries of curling or wrinkling caused by swelling and drying processes when printing on thin media. The ability to print on thick media also provides your business with an expanded range of products including packages, tags, calendars or menus. Likewise, printing on translucent substrates will also allow you to offer printing services for backlit posters or signage printing with high image durability.
- Supporting High Productivity and Output
Offer more services seamlessly with the AccurioJet KM-1e’s efficient printing capabilities. The printer is able to reach high outputs of 3,000 sheets per hour with a maximum paper size of 585x750mm, boosting productivity levels for large scale industrial printing. In the automatic duplex mode, it is able to produce 1,500 sheets per hour. Its large capacity paper feed and stack systems support high volume runs by holding up to 900mm high in the former and 630mm in the latter.
Half your printer setup time as our UV inkjet press takes you from setup to duplex print effortlessly, compared to general offset printers that require drying time plus twice the time to make double-sided prints. With maintenance performed by our efficient team of experts, minimal time will be spent maintaining the printer on your end.
