Onyx Graphics announces full support for the new Océ Colorado 1640 UVgel printer
ONYX 12.2 software solutions on show at upcoming tradeshows
Océ Colorado 1640
The Océ Colorado 1640 is Canon’s new 64-inch roll-to-roll printer powered by Océ’s new UVgel technology. The printer combines a radically new UV curable ink from Canon that instantly gels on contact with the media; an advanced “self-aware” piezoelectric printhead technology; an LED-based UV system that cures without adding any damaging heat to the media; and continuous, on-the-fly, patented printhead nozzle monitoring and performance compensation. Faster than any other printer in this segment, the new Océ Colorado 1640 offers a top speed of 159 m2/hr for applications such as billboards or outdoor banners and operates as fast as 40 m2/hr for close-up indoor applications. Productivity is further boosted by the dual-roll configuration.
