Konica Minolta Announces Continuous-Feed Inkjet Press Partnership at Inkjet Summit
RAMSEY, N.J. - April 13, 2018 - Konica Minolta Business Solution U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta,) a leader in digital imaging solutions, unveiled the latest offerings in its long line of market-leading production printing devices for the commercial print industry - the WEBjet 200D and WEBjet 100D continuous feed inkjet presses - at the Inkjet Summit this week.
The result of a three-way, marketing, distribution and servicing partnership with Super Web and Memjet, the new additions to the Konica Minolta line will be officially launched later in the spring of 2018. Company representatives were on hand to announce news of the partnership and specifics pertaining to the devices, as well as case studies.
Manufactured by Super Web, and powered by Memjet printhead technology, both continuous feed inkjet printers deliver high quality, high speed and high volume to the transaction, direct mail, publishing and in-plant business sectors. The WEBJet line will complement Konica Minolta’s existing cut sheet toner and inkjet products, and provide customers with a proven technology that has best-in-class features at an extremely attractive acquisition cost. With the highest-measured true resolution in the market and a compact design that comes standard with rollstand and stacker, the WEBjet was built to perform in today’s extremely competitive business environment.
“We are excited to enter into this agreement to extend the reach of our solutions to many more customers through Konica Minolta and its world-class service team - which will support WEBJet in the field,” said Paul Schwartz, President of Super Web. “As we developed the WEBJet product line we worked closely with both partners and customers. Our focus was to build reliable products that were operator-serviceable to maximize uptime and minimize costs.”
Through machine engineering born out of years of offset lithography experience, the WEBJet gives medium-size companies a simple and affordable way to step up to high-quality, variable data color. With a volume capacity of up to 20 million duplex color letter size pages per month, the WEBJet is the right choice for shifting page volume from offset to digital, or moving color toner volume to a more affordable platform. A single operator can manage the WEBJet’s large volume continuous feed — matching or exceeding the productivity of multiple cut-sheet digital machines and operators.
“We’re very pleased with this new strategic alliance because, first and foremost, it will truly benefit the marketplace,” said Dino Pagliarello, Vice President, Product Management and Planning, Konica Minolta. “All in all, it’s a mutually favorable arrangement for everyone. The addition of the WEBjet 200D and 100D fills a gap in our product portfolio we wanted to address. And, it gives Super Web, the manufacturer, and by extension, Memjet, the digital technology provider, a suite of marketing and servicing capabilities to address a wider customer base. This is a unique, win-win partnership.”
