Platinum sponsor Konica Minolta South Africa will showcase the bizhub PRESS C71cf digital label printer at the Africa Print Expo, taking place from 13-15 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.
The bizhub PRESS C71cf is ideal for label printers who are looking to shift volumes from conventional presses to digital, in order to deal with shorter print run lengths, requests for faster delivery times, personalisation and versioning, and the production of on-demand runs. It offers outstanding productivity, brilliant image quality and a surprising ease of use. The innovative label printer is ideal to expand into new markets and perfectly complements existing analogue machines.
The C71 is verified as environmentally friendly and food safe, with certifications stating that the label is safe for consumption and doesn’t harm the environment, with 100% biodegradable toner. It caters for mid-range users, accommodating both short and long medium print runs. It’s easier to operate and provides a lower cost solution for short runs, opening new markets at a low capital cost. Instead of buying presses that produce lots of labels, Konica Minolta offers a solution for people who require a smaller volume of labels.
The printer is ideal not just because it is easy to use and cost effective, but because it offers a fixed charge per metre, not just for the toner but also for the service and parts. It’s good for label printers to have that assurance, which allows for easier job estimations. It will encourage conventional label printers to convert to digital, and it will complement businesses with existing digital presses by adding another asset to the shop floor that will satisfy client needs. It can even be outsourced to other businesses.
