  • 3D Systems ProJet 2500. The ProJet 2500 offers highly-precise true-to-CAD parts, with a wide range of materials from ridged plastics, elastomeric, and casting waxes, across a wide variety of applications. The ProJet 2500’s professional part quality offers superior surface finishes and high-edge fidelity for not only prototyping but functional testing, and augmented manufacturing processes such as sort run injection moulding tools and investment casting.
  • MiRHook200. A user-friendly and efficient mobile robot for fully automated pick-up and towing of carts in production, logistics, and healthcare environments.
  • Virtual reality (VR) experience. 3D Systems D2P (DICOM to PRINT) is a stand-alone modular software package that is designed to address and consolidate 3D data from CT scan and DICOM for the fast and simple conversion into VR, and print-ready 3D files.

Konica Minolta receives top honour in the Australian Human Rights Commission Human Rights Awards

Sydney, Australia – Konica Minolta has been awarded the Human Rights Award 2018 in the Business category, for showing leadership in the people-centred policies that promote human rights in its business and supply chain.

The Human Rights Award is the pinnacle of human rights recognition in Australia, highlighting the outstanding contribution of individuals and organisations in promoting and protecting human rights and freedoms.

Konica Minolta delivers on its commitment to human rights in three key areas:

  1. People – by respecting and promoting the human rights of its employees through its diversity and inclusion strategy, and the implementation of progressive policies such as domestic and family violence support and Indigenous procurement strategies.
  2. Customers – by engaging with human rights in its value chain through the launch and implementation of its ethical sourcing roadmap and supplier code of conduct.
  3. Community – by supporting human rights through its non-profit partners including Breast Cancer Network Australia, Landcare Australia, The Smith Family, and Project Futures, business and human rights networks; and in pursuing its vision of being a business leader in human rights in Australia and the region, advocating for important policies such as the Modern Slavery Act, which was passed by the federal government on November 29, 2018.

Dr David Cooke, managing director, Konica Minolta Australia, said, “Konica Minolta has been actively involved in supporting human rights and has made significant efforts to not only ensure it has practices in place to ensure the ethical management of its own supply chain, but has also provided resources, raised awareness and worked with the government for changes to be made to address the issues of modern slavery in Australia and internationally.

“As well as ongoing community partnership programs, we’re dedicated through our efforts and influence to improve the quality of life for people affected by modern slavery or unfair work practices throughout the supply chain. Increasingly, we’re finding customers and employees are moved to work with companies that have purpose and diversity, and are committed to doing the right thing.

“We’re humbled to have received this Australian Human Rights Commission Award, and we thank all of the nominees for their initiatives and commitment to human rights. Doing what we can to uphold human rights isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s a necessity if we’re going to build a society where every individual is empowered to achieve their full potential.

“This not only provides a platform to demonstrate the inspiring work the team at Konica Minolta is doing, but also to encourage other businesses to look inward at the impact of their core business and operations, as well as those of their suppliers or business partners, to avoid negatively affecting human rights.”

Konica Minolta announces immediate availability of the AccurioPress C83hc

Sydney, AustraKonica Minolta LogoliaKonica Minolta has announced the immediate availability of the AccurioPress C83hc. This High Chroma digital press gives printers a whole new world of colour reproduction with enhanced performance.

The AccurioPress C83hc can express a much wider colour gamut than CMYK used for conventional printing. Pinks, purples, and bright greens are reproduced much more vividly and faithfully than those reproduced on a conventional CMYK toner print system.

Grant Thomas, Product Marketing Manager, Konica Minolta, said, “The wide colour gamut of the AccurioPress C83hc High Chroma toner creates new printing business opportunities. It means that colours closer to RGB can be obtained, which is great for applications like printing studio photos, photo books, photos of nature, illustrations, computer graphics (CG), web-to-print, and more.

“The printed image will be more natural and impressive when compared to an image produced on a conventional CMYK system. The expansion of spot colour reproduction is useful for printing company logos, high-impact point-of-purchase (POP), packaging, and posters.”

Key features of the AccurioPress C83hc include:

  • superb colour reproduction: a unique electro-photo print system that produces colours close to sRGB; something that cannot be achieved with CMYK print systems. When in print mode, colours close to sRGB and CMYK can be obtained with the one system
  • automated adjustments: automated colour and registration adjustments are possible with the Intelligent Quality Optimiser (IQ-501) enhancing quality, productivity and, ultimately, profitability
  • high productivity: high productivity (81 ppm/A4), high-capacity paper handling and high-spec finishing options for high-volume printing
  • excellent versatility: wide paper weight compatibility up to 350 gsm. Excellent versatility handling a variety of media with ease including envelopes, banners, and textured stocks.
  • long sheet banner printing: simplex up to 1300 mm and up to 762 mm auto duplex.

The AccurioPress C83hc is equipped with Konica Minolta’s Intelligent Quality Optimiser, IQ-501. The IQ-501 maintains consistent colour reproduction and closed-loop paper registration (image-on-image, image-on-paper, and side-one/side-two registration) is measured and managed automatically in real time during printing operation.

With the IQ-501 consistent realisation of high-quality print contributes to reduced print waste and labour times for set up, reducing the need for manual intervention. It increases uptime with automated system self-correction to ensure colour reproduction remains accurate and, importantly, delivers high-quality print results time after time. The IQ-501 can deliver time savings for print operators of up to 60 per cent and can increase system print productivity by up to 20 per cent.

Konica Minolta provides exceptional service and support to keep commercial printers up and running. The new AccurioPress C83hc is available now.

By working together, we can expedite its arrival, while leveraging Konica Minolta’s industry leading support capabilities, to the benefit of all manufacturers in Australia.”

Another technology that is making 3D production a reality and shifting how organisations operate is Direct Metal Printing (DMP). Victorian-based engineering company, Amiga Engineering recently installed the 3D SYSTEMS ProX 320 DMP metal printer and will be on the Konica Minolta stand, showcasing its new high-performance metal material output.

Matthew Hunter said, “Konica Minolta is excited about bringing this ground-breaking technology and new high-performance metal materials to the market, and we look forward to seeing how our customers use them to transform their business.”

Michael Bourchier, General Manager of Amiga Engineering and DMP Additive Manufacturing service bureau said, “Amiga Engineering was closely following the growth of this technology and decided it was time to take the plunge into this concept area to grow it and expand the business. We have seen great traction in a short amount of time with customers and prospects in industries such as medical, dental, aerospace, and motorsports. This will help advance the industry as a whole by creating use cases and applications for the technology.”
