Konica Minolta, Epic Products Partnering to Promote Digital Inkjet Production Printers
Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. today reported that it’s partnering with Epic Products International in order to promote digital ink-jet production-printing systems.
Epic Products International, which is based in Arlington, Texas, is a designer and manufacturer of equipment that’s said to enhance the quality and productivity of printing. Konica Minolta says that the venture will enhance Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1 program, which markets and promotes the KM-1 to print providers worldwide.
Founded more than 40 years ago, Epic specializes in coating systems for offset and digital printing, which run in-line or near-line, in both web and sheet-fed press configurations. The Epic CT-750 system is said to be known for its high performance and versatility. It supports UV, aqueous, and specialty coatings such as soft touch and blister, as well as spot coating. This solution can run near-line or in-line at press speeds. The Epic coater can also provide protection and appeal to every printed sheet.
Kevin Kern, senior vice president of Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning at Konica Minolta commented: “At Konica Minolta, our vision is about helping our customers innovate their business and processes. We want to open new opportunities for our customers to expand their business domains and adding the Epic Product to our portfolio will help them do that. The AccurioJet KM-1 program continues to offer them the highest level of innovative solutions to produce high quality, improve productivity and control costs.”
“Epic is proud to partner with Konica-Minolta and believes that Epic anilox technology will provide the AccurioJet KM-1 customers with tremendous benefits that coatings can offer,” commented Mary Barnes, president of Epic Products. Anilox is a printing method used to provide a measured amount of ink to a flexo printing plate.
Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1 is a UV inkjet press capable of printing across a wide spectrum of substrates. With it, Konica Minolta says it’s combined the speed and flexibility of offset presses with the the benefits of digital printing, which includes an open architecture workflow, full VDP (variable data printing) capabilities, plus the larger B2+ sheet size.
