Konica Minolta creates specific industrial print business unit

Help resellers create additional value from commercial production printing and reap further margins

Konica Minolta is launching a new Industrial Print business unit to help create additional value for resellers from commercial production printing activities and increase margin opportunities.

The unit will provide value-added offerings to capitalise on existing printing products. This includes new finishing equipment, processes and product capabilities including technology such as its TEC UV Coater, with its gloss coating capabilities, and the MGI JETvarnish 3DS, which can convert regular printed output into high-margin spot UV-printed sheets, or higher-margin 3D-embossed jobs with up to 100 microns of varnish, lifting the image from the page.

Konica Minolta strategic account manager, David Cascarino, said it recognised the need to approach this particular market segment differently.

“This dedicated resource will help us bring new value to the existing product suite as well as develop new technologies that align with industry needs, such as the use of inkjet in industrial print applications,” Cascarino said.

“This new business unit will help our customers leverage their existing print capabilities and augment them with additional industrial print technology to realise greater value from their output.”

Konica Minolta production print general manager, Anthony Lewis, said resellers can look forward to broadening their product offering and increasing margins for greater profits.

“This new capability will also let businesses capitalise on new markets and expand their client base,” he said.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
