Canon U.S.A. announced that it is the recipient of four Pinnacle Product Awards for its Colorado 1630 UVgel roll-to-roll printer and its Arizona 1380 GT, Arizona 2380 GTF and Arizona 2380 XTF flatbed printers, and two Pinnacle InterTech Awards for its Canon UVgel 460 Ink technology and Canon Arizona FLOW technology, as determined by PRINTING United Alliance.
Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, this year’s Pinnacle Product Award competition evaluates products that are, or will be, available for sale in 2021. A panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries in more than 58 categories spanning analog, digital, output and non-output technologies.
“This juried competition represents the best of the best among commercial hardware, software, consumables, and industrial and screen equipment, and judges are basing their decisions on objective criteria,” said Ray Weiss, director, Digital Print Programs, PRINTING United Alliance. “Some of the categories were decided by tenths of a point—so fierce was the competition this year—and with outstanding entries like the Colorado and Arizona, the judges certainly had their work cut out for them.”
The Pinnacle InterTech Awards recognize significant new technologies that improve or advance the printing industry with exceptional contributions in quality, capability, and productivity, and are predicted to have a major impact on the printing industry.
“We are honored to have our products and technologies recognized by PRINTING United Alliance for their significance and innovation,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “These awards exemplify our continued commitment to developing innovative technology that helps our customers meet ever-changing demands and challenges in today’s print market. We congratulate all 2021 recipients.”
