Canon unveils new roll-to-roll printer

March 31, 2023  By PrintAction Staff

Canon Canada launches the Colorado M-series, a modular 64-in. roll-to-roll printer with two speed configurations and Canon UVgel white ink.

Retaining Colorado’s industrial build quality, the new M-series design is based on a single platform that can be configured to customers’ needs. The scalable series includes two base models (M3 and M5) offering a choice of output speeds (cruising speed of 312 sf/hr and 427 sf/hr and maximum print speed of 1,195 sf/hr and 1,709 sf/hr respectively), with the option to upgrade from one model to the other. Both printers can be easily upgraded to ‘W’ versions for white ink (M3W and M5W).

With the addition of white UVgel ink and a new media detection sensor technology, the Colorado M-series customers can expand their typical product offering using heavy structured, transparent, coloured, reflective and magnetic materials.


Customers can also choose the FLXfinish+ option with their Colorado M-series printer, allowing them to add matte, gloss or mixed matte and gloss on the same print, without additional varnish. High-volume customers can automate the print-to-finish process with a UVgel Print Factory or UVgel Wallpaper Factory configuration, which integrates the Colorado M-series printer with cutting, rewinding, taping or sheet stacking to manage volumes of at least 500,000 sf per year.

“Since Canon introduced a revolutionary new print technology with the Colorado series, large format graphics providers have enjoyed unparalleled levels of print speeds, output quality, media versatility, automation and low cost of operation,” said Naoki “Mike” Sannomiya, senior vice-president and general manager of the Business Information Communications Group at Canon Canada. “With the arrival of the Canon Colorado M-series and worry-free UVgel white ink option, Canon is offering users an innovative solution that not only empowers them to further expand their business opportunities, but also enables them to configure the device to grow with them.”
