Canon U.S.A., Inc.announced that three of its products – Océ Colorado 1650 large format graphic printer, Océ Arizona 1380 XT UV flatbed printer and Océ Touchstone Software have won the 2019 Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) “Product of the Year” Awards.
“We’re thrilled to receive recognition from SGIA judges, experts in the industry, as it solidifies Canon’s customer-first approach that relies heavily on their input to create innovative solutions that are meeting and leading market trends,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. “As Canon continues to innovate and contribute to the next generation of industry solutions, we plan to pursue our goal of delivering high-quality products designed to directly benefit the needs of our customers.”
Acknowledged by the print industry for their outstanding print quality, versatility, productivity and ease of use, below are the three SGIA 2019 “Product of the Year” award winners by category. The Océ Colorado 1650 printer offers a truly impressive application range thanks to two innovative technologies: the more flexible and stretchable formulation of the Canon UVgel 460 inks and the ingenious Océ FLXfinish technology.
The new inks provide excellent image stability, even when folded, bent, or wrapped. And with the Océ FLXfinish technology, you can print your applications with either a beautiful glossy finish or a luxurious matte finish, independent of media type.
These new technologies build on top of a platform that already delivers extremely durable prints as well as segment leading geometric and color consistency.
