Konica Minolta is officially entering the industrial-printing market with its launch this week of the bizhub Press C71cf at Labelexpo Europe 2015. The bizhub Press C71cf is the firm’s first full-digital label press, and is designed to bridge the gap between entry-level and high-end digital label-printing presses.

Konica Minolta says the bizhub Press C71cf is ideal for short- to mid-size print runs, and that converters will benefit from its ease of operation, production flexibility, quicker turnaround, and variable-data printing.

This is Konica Minolta’s first step towards offering an industrial-printing portfolio. In the spring of 2016, it will launch the KM-1, a four-color digital-printing system.

The bizhub Press C71cf  uses dry toner and will print roll-to-roll CMYK at 13.5m per minute at a native solution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi/8 bit. Maximum unwind/rewind diameter is 500mm (20 inches). The continuous-feed printer is capable of printing on a wide range of self-adhesive and non-adhesive material, including coated and un-coated paper, polypropylene, and synthetic paper. Applications include package printing for beverages, liquors, industrial goods, household products, and food.
