After 7 years in business, Flora Graphics (Brampton, Ontario) has installed the first Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 Digital Label Press in Ontario. The company specializes in graphic design, web development, branding, digital and offset printing, magazines, books, large-format printing (posters and banners), and more recently has earned a solid reputation for its digital signage services. The shop serves primarily the restaurant and food industries with brochures, flyers and all types of printed materials – including digitally printed menus and interior/exterior signage. The recent installation of a Konica Minolta AccurioLabel 190 Digital Label Press, along with a Scorpio 3500 Label Finisher, will help Flora Graphics meet the growing demand for various label products, which has increased recently by a huge 40%.
The AccurioLabel 190, which is designed specifically for narrow-web applications, will enable Flora Graphics to produce up to 200,000 labels per day at 1, 200 dpi in full colour with 256 rich gradations. Fine lines and small type can be printed easily and clearly. The press supports a wide variety of substrates, including coated and uncoated paper, film, BOPP, PET and Estate Label. Newly developed digital toner results in excellent adhesion to substrates, yielding maximum durability. Image density control technology ensures consistency in applied CMYK toner throughout each label run, while advanced colour management tools such as ICC profile creation and spot-colour matching provides maximum accuracy in achieving colour matches. The press is also an ideal option as a first step into the digital label business for commercial printers looking to expand into new markets, convertors stepping into digital technology, or brand owners seeking to create a competitive advantage by changing how they source label technology.
