A unique patented process from Konica Minolta is helping to drive a new wave of innovation within inkjet for the AccurioJet KM-1. And explains why it is seen as the “Swiss Army Knife” of printing thanks to its versatility with substrates and applications:
The patented DFT technology uniquely self-freezes ink drops immediately upon contact with the material. A rapid change in temperature turns high-flowing inks from a printhead nozzle into a low-flowing, immobile ink droplet when it hits the material so the challenge of mottling of colours and of printing on to porous materials is eliminated.
The result is superior colour stability and consistency and excellent results with instantly dry perfected prints on the widest range of materials. This includes standard offset stock materials without needing pre-treated paper or a primer system in the printing press. Even the thinnest 60-micron paper can be printed two-sided and perfected (duplex) in one process. DFT also extends the CMYK colour gamut, reducing the need for special colours.
Konica Minolta’s flagship sheetfed digital AccurioJet KM-1 is the first press in the world to use DFT, which enables customers to explore applications and materials in a way that was not previously possible. DFT is a development by Konica Minolta, a company with inkjet expertise stretching back more than 40 years covering printhead, ink and textile machine developments, as well as software and colour management.
We have been highly impressed by the professionalism and the attention to detail that everybody from Konica Minolta has taken to support our venture into new markets.

The quality of the prints coming off the KM-1 has been fantastic. It is better than offset printing, that is for sure.
