SUMMARYKonica Minolta is proud to present the new KM1e digital inkjet B2 plus-sized press. While the KM1 inkjet technology has been established for the last 5 years as a leading solution in the Commercial Printing arena around the world, the new KM1e has greatly expanded its substrate management capabilities for a diverse array of applications – including folding carton board-stock. The KM1e – using patented Konica Minolta inkjet heads – takes advantage of a unique LED-UV ink-curing process to also produce applications on various types of media such as plastics, backlit signage, transparent film, foiled paper, metallic media, canvas and synthetic materials. To provide some perspective on the new press, Konica Minolta invited one of their top U.S. customers, Vulcan Information Packaging, in Alabama to share their experience with all the packaging printers and converters in the audience today. Vulcan also acquired an MGI JETvarnish 3D Print Embellishment press from Konica Minolta along with their KM1. and now has a branded luxury finishing service called “Vivid 3D” for unique, customized corporate branding projects.
Packaging Folding Carton and Corrugated
A variety of consumer trends are opening up new opportunities in both the folding carton and corrugated segments of the packaging industries.

Join Cory Francer, editor-in-chief of Packaging Impressions, as he and a panel of printers discuss why these segments are on the rise.
