Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., is showcasing new features and new inks for the Océ Colorado 1640 printer, the company’s heralded and first outdoor durable wide format graphic arts roll-to-roll printer, at the ISA Sign Expo 2018.
Canon Solutions America, after working extensively with its customers to make enhancements to the wide format printer, will show new 356B inks, which have been shipping to customers since the beginning of the year. These new inks significantly increase adhesion levels on all common graphics media, including cutting and lamination finishing operations.
“The feedback from our valued customers on these new inks has been extremely positive and showcases our commitment to improving user experience with our flagship wide format product,” said Robert Reddy, SVP, Large Format Solutions, Operations, Canon Solutions America. “Customers have validated the new inks and are very satisfied with the Océ Colorado 1640 printer’s performance and its positive impact to their business with significant ink savings and productivity improvements.”
In addition, Canon Solutions America introduces enhanced automation alert features for its UVgel powered Océ Colorado 1640 printer. Similar to its approach with inks, the company’s Large Format Solutions division met with its customers utilising the technology and developed unique enhancements to improve ease-of-use and overall productivity.
Part of this is the addition of mobile alerting for the Océ Colorado 1640 printer. This new feature, as seen in the company’s cutsheet products, enables operators to receive alerts on their smartphone devices.
