Canon Canada today hosted an open house for printers, creative professionals, designers and photographers to explore the company’s latest print technology in its 5,000-square-foot interactive showroom at its corporate Canadian headquarters in Brampton, Ont.

Attendees received hands-on demonstrations for a range of systems, including the UV flatbed printer Océ Arizona 1280 GT and the Océ Colorado 1640, a roll-to-roll inkjet printer for producing both indoor and outdoor graphics. Featuring eight ink channels, the Arizona 1280 GT offers a roll media option and Océ VariaDot grayscale printing technology.

Described as Canon’s first UVgel-enabled system, the 64-inch Océ Colorado 1640 first debuted to the North American market at ISA International Sign Expo 2017. Canon explains UVgel combines a radically new UV curable ink from Canon that instantly gels on contact with the media, advanced self-aware piezoelectric printhead technology, an LED-based UV system that cures without adding any damaging heat to the media, and continuous printhead nozzle monitoring and performance compensation.
