The Colorado series are 64” roll-to-roll printers powered by the patented UVgel technology. Produce scratch-resistant, odourless prints that require no drying time and enjoy the rich, colourful, razor-sharp images and impressive application range that are the hallmarks of the gel advantage.
The Canon Colorado 1650 wide format printer, powered by UVgel, will fill the gap between current technologies in the roll-to-roll production market. Print service providers now have a clear choice when it comes to a graphics printing system that will help deliver real production efficiency while lowering their operating costs, enabling them to profitably grow their business. Print volumes have continued to grow in the wide format marketplace for several years now and turnaround times continue to shrink as well. Analysts confirm that more than 40% of production jobs need to be turned around within 24 hours and a majority of those are same-day.
UVgel technology is at the heart of the Colorado series printers, a unique print-then-cure process using UVgel inks and UV LED curing. These inks form an ultra-thin, extremely durable layer on top of the media, even porous media that absorbs other inks. The result:
A unique print-then-cure process using UVgel inks and UV LED curing. These inks form an ultra-thin, extremely durable layer on top of the media. The gel droplets remain stable on the media, with minimal dot gain, making it possible to deposit more ink in fewer passes. The result is more efficient ink usage.
You can give any of your applications a gloss or matte finish without the need for special inks or media. For applications with a matte finish or when using porous media, a brief flash of UV light pins the UVgel droplets in place immediately after jetting, freezing the shape of every drop of ink. For a glossy finish, the droplets get a little more time to settle into a smooth, even layer.
