Printer manufacturer Konica Minolta is launching the bizhub Press C71cf for digital label printing.
Labels can be printed on pressure-sensitive paper in gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish; wine stocks, white BOPP, polypropylene in matte or gloss and other specialty substrates. It prints labels with 1200 x 3600dpi and runs at up to 18.9 metres a minute.
David Cascarino, national manager Industrial Print, Konica Minolta Australia, says, “The number of high-mix, low-volume print jobs continue to increase and print companies need to complete orders within shorter lead times. Printing demands that were difficult to fulfil with conventional presses can now be processed efficiently thanks to the flexibility of digital printing.
“The bizhub Press C71cf is ideal for label printers who are looking to shift volumes from conventional presses to digital so they can deal with shorter print-run lengths, requests for faster delivery times, personalisation and versioning, and the production of on-demand runs.”

Cascarino says, “The bizhub Press C71cf demonstrates Konica Minolta’s commitment to helping commercial printers open up new opportunities for revenue in a changing print market by delivering new technologies and innovations that help professional printers produce high quality products that are flexible enough to meet market demand.
“The bizhub Press C71cf ticks all the boxes for short-run label printing in high-quality colour, and is ideal for commercial printers looking to expand into the label print market to take advantage of this growing area of print.”
