Canon Europe has launched the Océ Colorado 1640, the first 64-inch roll-to-roll wide format printer built on new Canon UVgel technology.

The printer has a top speed of 159 m2/hr for applications such as billboards or outdoor banner.

Canon UVgel ink is instantly ‘pinned’ on contact with the substrate, resulting in a controlled and precisely positioned dot with minimal gain.

By minimising ink spread and coalescence on the media, the required volume of ink can be printed in each pass, delivering rich, intense images at ultra high speed.
