Germany’s Rehms Druck selects Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1 press

Germany printer Rehms Druck has selected AccurioJet KM-1 press from Konica Minolta for its first investment in B2 inkjet.

The AccurioJet KM-1 B2+ press is designed to provide a wide range of media handling on both coated and uncoated substrates ranging from 0.06mm to 0.6mm.

Rehms Druck will use the sheetfed press to expand its capabilities by printing a range of applications that included high quality direct mail, packaging and labels

Konica Minolta said that the sheetfed press allows Rehms to handle direct mail and packaging such as folding cartons, as well as a range of other key applications.

Rehms Druck managing director Daniel Baier said: “The performance and return on investment that the AccurioJet KM-1 can deliver will allow us to expand our market capability as we move into the packaging market and continue to develop our direct mail capabilities.”

As part of a deal signed in February, Konica Minolta will also provide support services including marketing planning, application development and insight, and on-site training for key operators to Rehms Druck.

Konica Minolta Europe market development head Mark Hinder said: “Our teams have been heavily involved in identifying and assessing how the AccurioJet KM-1 could not only integrate into Rehms Druck’s existing Kodak PRINERGY workflows, but also through variable data streams.

“This is further proof that this digital print system is a highly flexible, adaptable platform for innovative customers looking to expand their capabilities.”

The AccurioJet KM-1 B2 digital inkjet press was launched officially by Konica Minolta during drupa 2016 event.
