A select group of Canon Solutions America clients to receive educational tour of the show

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2018 - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that its Large Format Solutions division will showcase its latest large format print solutions at booth #2037 during the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association's (SGIA) 2018 Expo. The industry-wide event will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center October 18 – 20 2018. Additionally, Canon Solutions America will provide an educational tour of the SGIA Show highlighting partners and leading technology in the market for select Business Builder Program clients.

Widely recognized as a pivotal event each year for imaging professionals, the SGIA Expo brings together top equipment, innovation, and solutions from industry-leading exhibitors. At this year's show, Canon Solutions America is poised to present its latest high-quality large format display graphics applications with a special emphasis on its large format printing systems for higher volume production.

Designed for versatile, higher volume production of high quality large format display graphics printing onto rigid substrates, the Océ Arizona 6170 XTS UV flatbed printer will be on display for attendees to experience its exceptional image quality that provides countless opportunities to increase wide format revenue. The award-winning technology is perhaps most beneficial in its ability to give users a variety of digital print applications that directly impacts and boosts display graphics productivity. Accompanying the Océ Arizona 6170 is the equally renowned Océ Arizona 2280 GT, which has the ability to print on a wide variety of display graphics media and objects to capture revenue from large format printing applications ranging from standard sign and display to specialty and industrial applications.

Also on display will be the Océ ProCut flatbed cutter designed to support a variety of tools allowing users to cut a wide range of rigid and roll based media. Furthermore, attendees will have the opportunity to view demonstrations on Canon Solutions America's first outdoor durable wide format graphic arts roll-to-roll printer, the UVgel powered Océ Colorado 1640 printer, that has captured national praise from customers and analysts alike. The Océ Colorado 1640 wide format printer addresses a gap in the roll-to-roll production market helping deliver production efficiency while helping to lower operating costs, allowing customers to profitably grow their business.

In addition to seeing the latest technology Canon Solutions America has to offer, attendees can take advantage of three informative educational sessions while visiting the Canon Solutions America booth at the SGIA Expo:

  • The Lowdown: The truth on hybrid vs. flatbed printers
