Canon Solutions America, Inc. has announced Canon UVgel Wallpaper Factory, an integration between the Colorado Printer Series and UVgel technology, and finishing partner Fotoba. The UVgel Wallpaper Factory will be available as a complete end-to-end solution for new customers and as an upgrade for existing Colorado roll-to-roll large format printers.
The UVgel Wallpaper Factory is a fully modular workflow solution, which consists of a motorized Fotoba Jumbo Roll media loader (JRL) connected to the front of a Colorado series printer.
Automated and unattended, from media input straight to finished output, this solution helps eliminate manual operation as customers can rely on the UVgel Wallpaper Factory towards achieving full automation. Additionally, this solution can be integrated into a user’s existing workflow as a result of the Colorado’s open interface structure, which provides users the option to choose input and output solutions from different suppliers.
UVgel technology offers control of dot gain. The Colorado’s UVgel inks do not require heat to dry.
Colorado 1650 UVgel 460 inks are odorless and certified GREENGUARD Gold by AgBB, and Type II by ASTM, allowing them to be safe to use indoors.
“We are excited to offer this convenient package to our customers, to help them utilize UVgel technology to explore new growth opportunities in the interior décor market,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “The UVgel Wallpaper Factory is a highly automated workflow solution that enables our customers to print exceptional quality wallpaper in quicker turnaround times, as well as expand their offering in high-volume digital wallpaper manufacturing.”
