Canon to debut Colorado 1630 and the Arizona 135 at Fespa 2021

During the Fespa Global Print Expo 2021, Canon will exhibit its Colorado 1630 and Arizona 135 GT printers

The new Colorado 1630 will demonstrate how sign makers, commercial printers and print service providers can access all the proven advantages of UVgel technology at a smart investment level.

The modular architecture of the Colorado 1630 helps users to configure the printer to their unique business needs by adding options such as FLXfinish – an LED curing technique that adds flexibility for a matte or gloss finish to each print – a second media roll and double-sided printing.

The ‘UVgel Wallpaper Factory’ production set-up, featuring the Colorado 1650 and Fotoba motorised Jumbo Roll Loader JRL 170 in combination with the Cutter XLD 170WP and Rewinder REW 162, will showcase a complete end-to-end solution for new customers and existing Colorado 1650 users.

The Colorado Wallpaper Factory is designed for maximum throughput and with the set-up, customers have a fully automated solution for the production of high quality customised wallpaper, one of the fastest growing industry sectors.

Showcasing ‘UVgel Universal Factory’, a second Colorado 1650 will be connected to a Fotoba Jumbo Roll Rewinder and a Jumbo Roll Loader on the stand, demonstrating how customers can print long-run applications, with no need for an operator.

Canon will for the first time also be showing the Arizona 135GT Flatbed Printer, launched in June this year.

The Arizona 135 GT flatbed printer, launched in June this year, is another novelty at the stand. For printers looking to expand into the wide-format graphics industry or those looking to diversify into new applications, the Arizona 135 GT opens the door to a wide range of new opportunities, offering the proven benefits of Canon’s award-winning Arizona series to a smart investment level.

The only printer in its class with an option to print on flexible media (RMO) and expandable on site, the Arizona 135 GT will produce touch prints aided by Arizona Xpert software on a wide range of rigid and flexible media.

Other products on display will be the Arizona 2380 XTF will highlight how customers can improve operational efficiencies and fuel growth opportunities through new applications.

Built around Arizona FLOW technology, users can increase productivity by more than 20% by minimising the need for masking and taping and work with more challenging media, such as cardboard, wood and glass.

The capabilities of Canon’s new IJC358 UV LED ink set will be showcased on the Arizona 135GT. According to Canon it has superior adhesive properties, making it ideal for industrial applications that involve printing on more complex materials, such as plastics.

The higher flexibility of the IJC358 ink also means that it is more likely to remain adhered to the media both during the finishing processes and during the application of the finished media to a surface, such as a wall or glass.

Available in the same 800-millilitre, two-litre and three-litre pouches as Canon’s IJC357 ink set, IJC358 incorporates CMYK, light cyan, light magenta and white. Whereas the IJC357 inks produce a glossier result, the IJC358 inks produce a more matte finish, again of greater potential appeal to those producing industrial applications.

Wouter Derichs, Sales &Marketing Director of large format graphics for EMEA at Canon Production Printing, comments, “We know that many print service providers aspire to expand into new markets and so we are delighted to showcase the capabilities of the Colorado 1630 and Arizona 135 GT at Fespa 2021. Thanks to the recent launch of these printers, incorporated from customer and partner feedback, users can benefit from highly automated and robust technologies at a very attractive investment level. In addition, we are looking forward to showing visitors the extraordinary versatility in terms of applications that they can achieve with the new IJC358 ink system, to improve and diversify their offer”.

“We are very happy to return to Fespa 2021 after two years without face-to-face events and to have the opportunity to produce color and real-time applications. Our goal at the event is to show customers Canon’s range of solutions designed to meet their business needs and volume requirements. The last 18 months have been difficult for many companies, and at Canon we are helping customers and partners focus their resources and energies on business recovery and adding value to their customers; which, in turn, will translate into sustainable business growth”concludes Wouter.
