The Océ Colorado 1640: mastery, excellence and know-how

The revolutionary roll-to-roll printer has been engineered to meet the
new the peak production challenges and requirements of the wide format
market. Thanks to the distinguished know-how, it produces high volumes
of wide format for businesses of all sizes, within the short turnaround
times demanded by clients. The game-changing UVgel technology developed
by Canon aims to deliver unprecedented productivity on a broad range of
applications. This technology offers low-heat productivity and uniform,
post-print UV curing that further contributes to print speed and print
quality (wide color gamut and homogeneous colors). Canon also leverages
its well-established skill in printing technologies at the service of
Océ Colorado, which was developed to enable businesses to seize new
growth opportunities.

The Océ Colorado offers a wide set of features and benefits, namely:

  • Productivity with faster speed than any other printer in this
    segment, with a top speed of 159 m2/hr for applications such as
    billboards or outdoor banners. It also provides the highest level of
    quality for close-up indoor applications at a speed of 40 m2/hr.
  • The innovative Canon UVgel technology: Canon UVgel ink is
    instantly ‘pinned' on contact with the substrate, resulting in highly
    controlled and precisely positioned images with ultra-thin ink
    dispersion with almost no discernible physical profile on the media
    surface. The cured UVgel ink delivers instantly dry prints that are
    ready for finishing or laminating. The low-temperature UV LED lamp
    drying process is suitable for printing a wide variety of applications
    on a wide range of media, including thin and heat-sensitive media.
  • Two rollers that redefine the distribution of productivity:
    service providers can switch between and autoload two types and
    formats of paper to produce a mix of applications quickly.
  • Cost optimization by reducing ink consumption by up to 40
    percent. The Océ Colorado is designed for low total costs of operation
    made possible by a more efficient way of jetting ink and significantly
    reduced maintenance.

The launch of Océ Colorado 1640 in Morocco was also an opportunity to
debut the full range of large format Canon printers distributed by
ARKEOS Group, the imagePROGRAF, Océ ColorWave and Océ Plotwave ranges.
