Comparing Production Printing in 2019
Production Digital Printers
Production digital printers have always been second choice in industrial and commercial printing. Due to the fact the Digital production printers use inkjet systems the quality could never compare to the flat colour quality of Lithographic and flexographic printing. However digital production printing is fast becoming first choice for commercial printers. With the launch of the Konica Minolta Accurio production and label printer range, the Accurio model has completely changed the game. We have yet to find another machine that compares to the Accurio range in cost, quality and efficiency. As an unbiased comparison platform it is difficult for us to recommend any other digital production printer in good conscience, but we always recommend that you do your own home work and always ask for demos with any potential purchase.
There are other competitors in the industry, namely being Ricoh and Epson, but when it comes to quality there is a noticeable difference in colour quality and banding in the print. The Mark Andy machines are very close, if not the same in quality as the Accurio range, however the Mark Andy comes with a hefty price tag almost double that of the Accurio, and there is unfortunately no local service centers available in South Africa, experts have to be flown in from Europe to service these machines and due to the reels being open, they do require cleaning more often.
