Konica Minolta, Inc. (Konica Minolta) (TOKYO:4902)(ISIN:JP3300600008) will be

As the third model in the Nassenger PRO series, the new, high-performance
Nassenger PRO120 has the maximum printing speed of 120m^2 per hour, twice as
fast as that of the popular model, the Nassenger PRO60 introduced last year.
Equipped with high-density, independently-driven, water-based inkjet
printheads, the new model is optimized for sample manufacturing to production
in small lots. Konica Minolta's unique Automatic Printhead Maintenance System
supports smooth, continuous printing for long hours or night-time operation,
contributing to stable print quality and labor-saving for operators. With
optional dryer and textile winder, the Nassenger PRO120 offers comprehensive
inkjet printing solutions from unwinding, printing, drying through winding.
With footprint of approximately 15m^2, the new model is compact to install
within limited space in the manufacturing floor. The nine-color ink lineup has
been designed so that the textile design and its brilliant colors will take
advantage of digital printing into high-quality output.

The Nassenger PRO120 will be exhibited later at FESPA 2013, an international
digital printing equipment exhibition to be held at London, the U.K., from
June 25 through June 29.
