Canon Solutions America joins its colleagues in Canon Europe in the announcement of the completion of more than 1,000 global installations of the Océ Colorado roll-to-roll wide format printer series, powered by UVgel technology. Since September 2019, the user base operating the Océ Colorado 1640 and 1650 printers achieved combined monthly print volumes of more than 10.7 million square feet.
Implementation of the Océ Colorado printers has expanded rapidly, with each installation producing higher volumes than initially forecasted. 16% of Colorado customers have printed more than 269,000 square feet per year on each Colorado device.
Earlier this year at FESPA, Canon introduced the Océ Colorado 1650 as the second member of the Colorado family. Among the innovative features: a new flexible ink for customers producing applications that need to be folded, wrapped, or bent, such as framed canvasses, soft signage, front- and back-lit graphics, surface décor applications like flexible wall coverings, and outdoor applications including vehicle graphics. The latest model also comes equipped with unique Océ FLXfinish technology, which enables customers to choose between gloss or matte effects without the need to change ink or media, offering an even wider range of applications.
