Realisaprint.com Becomes First Printer in France to Invest in the AccurioJet KM-1 from Konica Minolta
Konica Minolta formalised the first sale in France of its B2+digital inkjet press, the AccurioJet KM-1, to Realisaprint.com printers. This new deal reinforces its existing partnership with Realisaprint.com, an ambassador for Konica Minolta and the first reference site for Southern Europe.
The AccurioJet KM-1 integrates easily into offset and digital environments and offers productivity of up to 3,000 sheets an hour. Its numerous advantages include the patented "dot freeze” LED UV-cured ink technology, guaranteeing perfect colour registration and outstanding image stability. The AccurioJet KM-1 offers immense flexibility, not least through its unique ability to produce duplex prints that come off the press and go straight to finishing. Registration accuracy is guaranteed by using the same gripper-to-gripper technology used in offset.
Its ability to handle a wide variety of media, including coated and uncoated, offset, textured, canvas and PVC from 60 to 600 microns thick without pretreatment, in particular, was one of the reasons Realisaprint.com chose this press. The LED (UV) printing operation intends to immediately finish the sheets. The colorimetric stability associated with inkjet production and the cost efficiency for short runs also justified Realisaprint.com’s decision. “Being the first company in France to buy the AccurioJet KM-1 reinforces our reputation as pioneers and strengthens our expertise in the graphics chain, allowing us to support our customers better in post-print processes,” emphasised Rémy Barelli, co-founder of Realisaprint.com.
