Canon to inspire visitors at PrintWeekLive!

Visitors to Canon’s stand, G80, will see its latest innovation, the Océ Colorado 1640, the first 64" UVgel roll-to-roll printer.

Canon will be showing live printing, as well as highlighting its imaging supplies, professional services businesses and service capabilities at PrintWeekLive! at the Wasps Arena, Coventry, on March 7-8, 2018.

Canon technology will range from wide-format devices through to examples of work completed on its cutsheet technology.

Visitors to Canon’s stand, G80, will see its latest innovation, the Océ Colorado 1640, the first 64" UVgel roll-to-roll printer. Others running at the show will be the imagePRESS C850 85ppm cutsheet printer and imagePROGRAF 4000, a 44-inch production system for photographic and fine art printing.

Over the two days a team of Canon experts will be on hand to discuss how visitors can improve their business with Canon’s range of flatbed wide-format, production inkjet and continuous feed technologies, as well as workflow solutions, web-to-print platforms, and more.

In addition, showgoers can find out more on systems such as highly innovative, high volume colour inkjet sheetfed presses, an example being the Océ VarioPrint i300. This combines the proven inkjet advantages of high productivity with sheetfed versatility and media flexibility. Continuous feed system experts will also provide advice on Océ ProStream, ColorStream and ImageStream systems.

Canon will also be inspiring customers through its new ELEMENTAL campaign. This focuses on how traditional and innovative print applications can help brands maximise omni-channel marketing campaigns. ELEMENTAL is Canon’s fictional cosmetics brand, specifically designed to help proactive and progressive Print Service Providers (PSPs) unleash the world of print when working with customers in the modern, fast-changing digital world.
