Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) has installed its AccurioLabel 400 at Label Tec Scotland, with the digital label press aiming to deliver high resolution and print speed for the company’s labels. 

Label Tec Scotland creates a variety of label products that identify and enhance the qualities of its customer’s products. The company has used technology from Konica Minolta for more than 20 years. As a result, when looking for a new press the company turned to Konica Minolta again.

Paul Dunne, managing director at Label Tec, commented, ‘The AccurioLabel 400 offers something different, printing incredibly high resolution at speeds matching traditional flexographic presses. It also produces an opaque white that can match anything on the market today. What is more there is no need to pre-coat the wide range of substrates we are able to print on.’

The AccurioLabel 400 is explained to be capable of speeds up to 39.9m/min, depending on the media type and colour combinations, with print data processed at a resolution of 1200 x 2400dpi. Tasks such as colour adjustments, colour registration control and calibration are fully automated with Intelligent Quality Care.

Mr Dunne added, ‘I believe this is a safe investment for my business and it enables Label Tec Scotland to exploit the medium to higher run digital print segment in the market.’ 

In 2019, Label Tec Scotland was the first company in the UK to install the AccurioLabel 230, which helped to keep customers supplied with labels during the pandemic. The company is now the first to take advantage of Konica Minolta’s AccurioLabel 400.

Jon Pritchard, label and inkjet consultant, Konica Minolta (UK), commented, ‘We have been working with Label Tec Scotland for more than 20 years. During this time, it has continuously introduced new and innovative technologies, enabling their customers to capitalise on creative new ways for their products to be identified, marketed, and sold. Konica Minolta is delighted that the first AccurioLabel 400 in the UK has found a happy home in Airdrie.’
