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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
