Just the right size “ Perfect Fit ” Label Printer

“AccurioLabel 190” has been created to take center stage on the globally-expanding digital label market.

Adoption of a production printer as the engine, which represents the culmination of cutting-edge technologies amassed by Konica Minolta over a span of many years. AccurioLabel 190 contributes to business expansion by perfectly balancing customer needs from the perspectives of quality and cost.

Digital Label Printer matched to Market Needs

The global label market continues to expand by the day with the prospect of further stable growth in the future. The ratio of demand for digital labels is increasing year by year, giving rise to a trend of growing demand for small-lot printing.

Why digitize Label Printing?

As the number of high-mix low-volume print jobs continues to increase, print companies now find themselves in a position where they also need to be able to cope with orders with shorter lead times than with conventional high-volume printing.

Printing demands that were difficult to cope with using analogue printers can now be handled effociently thanks to the flexibility that is one of the advantages of digital printing. The added value that digital printers provides for tasks such as variable and numbering printings enables print companies to realize product differentiation amidst diversifying market needs

Problems with analog machines

Settings such as color tone adjustments and ink cleaning are required.

  1. Preparatory time for exchange of printing plate, etc. is necessary for each job.
  2. A significant amount of roll paper is wasted by tasks such as trial printing.
  3. Expert knowledge and proficiency are required.

Merits of digital machines

Data is output directly from a PC.

  1. Preparations involve only tasks such as paper replacement and color tone adjustments.
  2. Stable output is possible from the very beginning of the print job, minimizing paper waste.
  3. Tasks such as output instructions and maintenance can also be performed by following on-screen instructions.

“AccurioLabel 190” a digital label printer that offers outstanding productivity, image quality, operability and economy, is a “Perfect Fit” for new market expansion and parallel use with existing analog machines.

Achieves both High Image Quality and Productivity through

High Image quality and High-precision Printing
Multi-gradation Data Processing at a high Resolution of 1200dpi x 8bit

High resolution of 1200dpi produces a high-precision finish. Combined with the reproductive capability of digital toner HDE , small characters and fine lines can be printed clearly and color images beautifully output in rich gradations

  • 8bit/256-gradation processing

Color and monochrome are processed at a resolution of 1200dpi x 8bit with 256 gradations expressed in 1 pixel.

  • “S.E.A.D” – Image Processing Technology to meet Sophisticated Needs

Furnished with an even more evolved “S.E.A.D.” – Konica Minolta’s unique image processing technology. High-precision image processing is performed in close linkage with the image formation process, achieving a high-dimensional fusion of “productivity,” “image quality” and “stability” and producing high image quality by taking optimum advantage of the engine characteristics.

Clear Print Quality

Furnished with a precise outline processing function that reduces blurring and streaking to realize high quality even for color or outline characters. Characters on food or ingredients labels, for example that tend to be small, or barcodes can be printed clearly.

Without line-thinning process

With line-thinning process

High Printing Speed
Realization of production speed 13.5m/min for tack paper

Furnished with the top level speed and stable printing performance in the class, per-minute speeds of 18.9m, 13.5m and 9.45m are selected depending on the paper type. In addition, the fast startup after switching on the power enables reduction in setup time, enhancing output productivity

Major Improvement in Production Efficiency

Digital printing requires no plate making, making it possible to improve the efficiency of the integrated flow from fie reception to printing. In addition, high flexibility in designing and ease of color control enable to handle reprinting of previously-output labels with speed. The ability to print no more than required volumes when needed also keeps inventory to a minimum

Outstanding Operability and Maintainability
Ease of Tasks such as Color Adjustments and Reprinting compared to Analog Machines

Compared not only to flexography, but also liquid development and inkjet printers, AccurioLabel 190 ensures ease of maintenance. Tasks that take time on analog machines such as color adjustments can be performed with ease on a digital machine. The ability to perform operations simply by following on-screen instructions makes it possible to operate the machine with little time needed for training.

  • Mouse-compatible Operation Panel

The large 15-inch display adopted is easy to view and operate. The angle of the panel can be freely adjusted to suit the user and the easy-to-understand GUI and guide messages ensure high operability when making settings. A USB mouse can also be connected to improve operability

Compact System Size

Compared not only to analog printers, but also other digital printers of the same standard, the system offers the advantages of compact size. The space economical design eliminates worries over the place of installation and makes it possible to increase work space.

System size: Approx. 1.1m (D) x Approx. 4.0m (W)

Space occupied: Approx. 3.0m (D) x Approx. 5.0m (W)

Our cutting-edge Digital Printing Technologies

High Media Compatibility
Allows use of labels in various scenes

Furnished with newly-developed digital toner HDE to further improve image quality and energy-saving performance. The 3-dimensional hybrid structure that incorporates functional polymers provides high contouring performance for all types of media, enabling realization of ideal natural textures. In addition, Fixation at lower temperatures contributes to major reductions in power consumption.

  • Toner particles with a 3-dimensional hybrid structure

  • Blue Wool Test: The results according to ISO 105 B2 (lightfastness test).
Remarks: The evaluation criteria is classified into 8 levels (1 to 8 levels), and the higher the value, the higher the lightfastness.
*1 The test results indicate that the lightfastness of Cyan and Black toner is ranked as 8 or higher.

Fixing capability with high reliability

Thanks to digital toner HDE and Konica Minolta’s low-temperature Fixation technology, AccurioLabel 190 is compatible with a wide range of media including not only ordinary and matte paper, but also glossy paper, tack paper and film essential for label production. The user can not only select the ideal media to match applications but also print labels without the need for preprocessing.

*Some media types are incompatible

Continuous Banner Size Printing
Capable of continuous printing of a maximum size of 1,195 x 320mm

The system is capable of continuous printing of sizes of a maximum length of 1,195mm and width of 320mm. The advantages of printing 1,195mm lengths enable not only printing of long panels, but also effcient imposition and printing of labels of differing sizes, realizing effective use of paper.

Wider print application thanks to the banner print capapility

As well as store decoration and floor POP displays, the system can be used for long posters, signboards and an extensive range of other applications. The ability to offer promotional proposals with media mixes combined with labels also contributes to business expansion.

No need for printing plate
Provides Flexibility for high-mix low-volume jobs at low cost

AccurioLabel 190 requires no plate that is essential for analog label printing machines and achieves reduction of paper waste generated during trial printing due to stable and precise output from the beginning of print job. In addition, reduction in labor cost thanks to a digital work flow realizes
reduction in production cost compared to analog label printing machines for small-to-medium lots.

Reduction in Total Time

High-mix jobs such as printing information including items and control numbers on chemical product labels, for example. With analog machines, plates need to be changed frequently, resulting in reduced operating ratio and restricting the number of items produced. Digital machines, on the other hand, allow frequent job switchover, offer reduced work time and enhance the ability to meet required delivery time.
