Canon brings game-changing large format graphics innovations to FESPA 2019 to fuel customer ambitions

This week at FESPA 2019 (14th-17th May, 2019, Messe Munich, Germany, stand B5-E30), Canon is sharing game-changing innovations designed to help signage and graphics producers create high margin end-user products and improve operational efficiencies to fuel business growth.

The newly launched Oc Colorado 1650 64 roll-to-roll printer, with new Canon UVgel ink, offers matte and gloss modes independent of media finish

The Oc Arizona 1300 Series UV-flatbed printer is being showcased for the first time at an international event

The highlights of the Canon stand include:

the Oc Colorado 1640 with automated inline print-and-cut workflow

the first viewing of the Oc Arizona 1300 UV-flatbed printer series at an international event (see separate launch release)

the Oc Arizona 6170 with High Flow Vacuum (HFV) for precise registration when working with rigid media

Driving new opportunities

Visitors to the Canon stand will find new technologies, stand-out creative applications and seamless end-to-end workflows designed to help them fuel their growth through improved production efficiency and by differentiating their product offering.

To help customers unlock new application opportunities, Canon is launching the Oc Colorado 1650 roll-to-roll printer at FESPA 2019 (see separate release). The new printer optimises productivity and performance of self-adhesive vinyls, wall coverings, canvasses, soft signage materials, front- and back-lit graphics as well as non-coated paper, and incorporates Oc FLXfinish technology, giving customers the choice of matte or gloss modes on the same media type without changing ink on one single machine for increased application versatility.

The Oc Arizona 1380 GT model, part of the Oc Arizona 1300 printer series, is being shown for the first time at an international event following its January 2019 launch (see separate release). The UV-flatbed printer is live printing both rigid and flexible media at FESPA 2019. It will also produce textured applications reliably and cost-effectively using Oc Touchstone, showing visitors how they can offer sophisticated and easy-to-use elevated printing, adding exciting tactile elements to print projects to achieve higher margins. The Oc Arizona 1380 GT is powered by Oc Arizona Xpert, a unique workflow software solution that allows you to create recipes for complex projects that can be repeated for true efficiency, helping customers to improve time to market.

Accelerating operational efficiency

Consistent with its commitment to help customers to optimise operational efficiencies, Canon has collaborated closely with finishing partner Fotoba to design a new automated print-and-cut solution for roll-to-roll applications produced using the Canon UVgel printers (Oc Colorado 1640 and 1650). Building on the technology preview shared at FESPA 2018, the solution - which will be commercially available later in 2019 - integrates the Oc Colorado roll-to-roll printer with the Fotoba XLD series cutter, enabling automated finishing of printed output, resulting in full-bleed applications without manual operation.

An auto-loading module feeds the printed media roll from the printer into the cutter. This enables cutting to proceed automatically, eliminating manual operator intervention and production downtime from manual feeding. The 18 metre-per-minute operating speed achievable with the Fotoba XLD device is well matched to the ultra-fast printing speed of the Oc Colorado printers, enabling exceptional productivity for high-volume graphics applications, such as full-bleed posters.

For customers seeking to streamline production with challenging media, such as corrugated board and plywood, the Oc Arizona 6170 is being demonstrated with High Flow Vacuum (HFV) which keeps substrates flat to the flatbed for precise registration, while reducing preparation time for operators. Linked with Oc ProCut workflow software, it shows visitors how automated cutting can remove the need for manual intervention and speed up production, enabling skilled resources to be redeployed in other areas of the business.

As part of Canon's extensive large format portfolio, stand visitors will be able to see the 24 imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 printing on Water Resistant Media for signs, banners, posters, self-adhesive graphics and pop-up displays. There is no need for lamination when using Canon's Water Resistant Media, thanks to its ink-receiving layer that consists of a binder with low water solubility. With a choice of options including matte polypropylene, self-adhesive and banner vinyl, the Water Resistant Media range offers an easy, quick and cost-effective choice for customers to produce indoor and outdoor prints that can last up to six months.

Visitors to the Canon stand can also explore a range of graphics and retail d cor elements which were created to support the promotion of coffee table book Speed', showing how brands can use print to create consistent and emotionally engaging experiences for their end customers, encouraging new and repeat business. From POS to encourage purchase, through to interior d cor to enhance the customer's brand experience, the Speed' campaign applications demonstrate print's role as part of a multi-channel launch.

Michele Tuscano, Vice President, Large Format Graphics, Canon EMEA, comments: Large format graphics print service providers continue to look for ways to diversify, manage an evolving product mix, and handle growing volumes. With the launch of the Oc Arizona 1300
