Focus Label Article & email-1

The highly acclaimed AccurioLabel 230 digital toner press from Konica Minolta is now available in the UK,  through Focus Label Machinery. This cutting-edge technology is perfectly complemented by the REFLEX range of digital print finishing systems.

Focus is an Accredited Industrial Print Partner of Konica Minolta. The AccurioLabel 230 press will be demonstrated on the Konica Minolta Stand (Hall 8 C21 / C22) adjacent to the Focus stand. 

For pre-printed digital printed web, the REFLEX 330 Digital Finishing System provides a comprehensive off-line finishing  solution. Focus will demonstrate the accuracy of its re-register system - even at speeds of over 100 metres per minute. New for 2023 includes option for semi-rotary or full rotary converting system in roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet formats. 

The d-Flex digital inkjet press incorporates the latest HiQ 1800 DPI high-speed full-colour (CMYK + White) Konica  Minolta inkjet technology, which has been integrated into the existing Reflex servo press with in-line UV or LED flexo print  head, die-cutting, slitting and rewinding. Visitors will be able to see high quality variable images, overprinted in perfect  register with UV flexo ink, then converted & rewound – in a single pass with speeds up to 60 metres per minute. 


The latest e-FLEX model with automated pre-register functions is equipped with compact LED UV curing systems from  Phoseon. The TWIN-SERVO system provides single touch set ups, with minimal waste for conventional printing and can be combined with a digital module for variable data, text & images. The touchscreen HMI operator controls, a fully  programmable digital platform, plus storage of job details for future retrieval, all help to make the e-FLEX, the most  effective, affordable servo-driven flexo / digital combination press in the marketplace today. 

The e-FLEX incorporates top-loading print cylinders and quick-change print cartridges to reduce downtime and set-up  wastage. A choice of ultra-efficient interstation drying systems enables much higher press speeds. The short web-path  allows for a compact design, whilst still maintaining good accessibility for the operator and plenty of space for optional  equipment. Infra-red / UV / LED drying with chill-rolls is available, as well as rail-mounted delam/relam, rotary cold foil  transfer, silk screen, turn-bar, sheet conveyor, enclosed/chambered ink cartridges, plus many other options.  

Proflex SE: 

The Proflex SE is a full servo driven, modular press available with print widths of 250mm and 330mm. Several different drying systems are available, including full UV, LED, Infra-Red – or combination drying systems, with optional chill rolls for  heat sensitive substrates.  

The open architecture design of the print stations enables easy loading of ink cartridges & print cylinders, whilst  interchangeable print cartridges can be partially or fully unloaded and exchanged, in order to maximise productivity and  minimise downtime. Bearer rings are incorporated into the print cylinder assembly, to guarantee accurate print impression  settings, regardless of substrate. 

Print cartridge assemblies can be cleaned off press, allowing the operator to maintain uninterrupted production. As well as flexo print heads, there is also a facility to accommodate a full colour or single colour digital inkjet system, for  short run & variable data requirements. 

The new Proflex SE benefits from touch screen HMI operator interface panels, servo assisted control for all press operations, fully programmable digital platforms, plus storage of job information for future reference. The new features  have decreased set up time and material wastage, resulting in reduced downtime and higher productivity. The operator  can control all aspects of press operation, from any of the HMI touch screen control panels and can store job information for future retrieval on repeat orders. Print modules incorporate Digital Drive technology, reducing mechanical register  errors and providing greater control over a wide range of substrates. 

Optional automatic print register control can easily be integrated into the servo press, to assist with print registration on difficult substrates. Also, the modular design of the system means that future addition of extra print heads & other optional equipment, including digital print engines is easily facilitated. 

In addition, a rail system can be mounted along the top of the press, to allow optional overhead press equipment to be  easily transported to the required position. Options such as turn-bar, delam-relam, cold foil, laminating, waste rewind  turret, scanner systems, etc – can all be rail-mounted.  

Heavy duty, servo driven die cutting units with removable anvils are provided for converting a range of substrates from film  to 300gsm board  

A non-servo model, Proflex E with the same open architecture print head design is also available.
