Auckland, New Zealand (September 2023) - Recently released in New Zealand, the AccurioLabel 400 Press—designed for on-demand label print production with the latest in automated technology—has been awarded three prestigious product awards.
The awards include:

Founded in 1955, it is one of the world's largest design competitions with a history of more than 60 years, organised by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (North Rhine Westphalian Design Center) in Essen, Germany. The award consists of three categories—Product Design Award, Communication Design Award, and Design Concept Award—and thousands of entries are received every year from all over the world.
• Good Design Award. The Good Design Award is the only comprehensive design evaluation and recommendation system in Japan. For more than 60 years, the Good Design Mark has been widely known as the "G Mark" and is engaged in activities to improve people's lives and society through design.
Chris O’Hara, national production print manager, Konica Minolta New Zealand, said, “The AccurioLabel 400 delivers high quality, high speed and highly efficient capabilities on a wide range of media while extending printing length and incorporating advanced process automation. The addition of our new white toner expands on the applications for our digital label press’s. High levels of quality management automation and in-line quality inspection increases quality while reducing wastage and in turn, results in higher profitability. Additionally, high levels of automation combined with ease of operation see a reduction in the training period of operators.
