Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1e Press Wins BLI 2021-2022 PaceSetter Award from Keypoint Intelligence

| 9 June 2021

Konica Minolta is proud to announce it has received a Buyers Lab (BLI) 2021-2022 PaceSetter in Production Print Applications: Output Variety from Keypoint Intelligence, the world’s leading and independent evaluator of document imaging hardware, software and services. Based on research conducted in the North American market, these accolades celebrate those OEMs that best support their customers on reducing costs and/or increasing business based on different printing applications. Konica Minolta’s AccurioJet KM-1e LED UV Inkjet Press was specifically recognized for its ability to print on a wide variety of substrates.


Being able to print in a larger variety of substrates increases the number of applications that a print service provider (PSP) can produce and sell. And according to feedback from Keypoint Intelligence, the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1e with UV inks enables users to print on an array of media that other cut-sheet technologies cannot, while greeting cards, gift cards, hotel room keys, and even ID badges can be printed on texture film or PVC. Other applications could be printed on synthetics, PET adhesive, polypropylene, and polyethylene.


Launched in June, 2020, and inheriting excellence from the AccurioJet KM-1, the AccurioJet KM-1e embodies infinite business expansion possibilities, from current business fields to more profitable businesses. The device amplified benefits of the LED UV inkjet technology to maximize quality and printing capability on various types of media such as plastics, backlit signage, transparent film, foiled paper, metallic media, canvas and synthetic substrates. The AccurioJet KM-1e continues to help customers pursue high value-added products where high-quality production, extensive media compatibility and personalization are required.
Keypoint Intelligence’s Pacesetter Awards in Production Print Applications are aimed at finding the digital print manufacturing vendors that best support their customers in terms of driving applications to success. The companies recognized help buyers communicate more effectively via print, which ultimately contributes to the growth of digital printing.
