Colorado 1650 Printer, Next Generation UVgel

The Colorado 1650 with FLXfinish technology allows print providers to be more productive and cost-effective with their large format roll printing applications. Produce more output in less time at a lower cost through innovative Canon UVgel technology.

Here’s how PSPs can significantly lower operating costs and increase profits:

  • Extremely Low Ink Usage
  • Unattended production enables significant labor savings
  • Produce more in less time without sacrificing quality
  • One machine with two finishes without the need to change ink or media
  • Reduce rework/overwork with highly accurate color and geometric consistency

The Colorado 1650 works with a new version of Canon UVgel ink, formulated for maximum flexibility. In addition, FLXfinish technology, a new approach to LED curing allows the user to choose between matte or gloss modes for each individual print to achieve different finishes, removing the need to change inks or media.
