Canon introduced some of their new products and offerings at FESPA Africa 2017, which took place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa during the course of September 2017. The signage and print exhibition was a platform for Canon to officially launch their latest products and technologies.
At the three-day event, Canon showcased the Océ Colorado 1640. This is the first ever printer of its kind on the continent and uses Océ UVgel technology developed by Canon. Canon UVgel technology reduces ink consumption by as much as 40 percent compared with competitive technologies.
Working with the attributes of UVgel, the Océ Colorado 1640 has been engineered, according to Canon, to the highest industry standards to meet the peak production requirements of businesses of all sizes, producing high volumes of wide format graphics within the short turnaround times demanded by clients.
Canon also unveiled the new 3-in-1 multifunctional inkjet printer for users to print, scan and copy at home. PIXMA TS3140 Series features Wi-Fi connectivity.
Other new ranges include three new cheque scanners to the Image Formula range, the Image Formula CR-150, Image Formula CR-120 and the Image Formula CR-120 UV. The Image Formula CR-150 and Image Formula CR-120 series are, according to the company, capable of accurately scanning up to 12,000 cheques per day, with up to 150 or 120 cheques processed per minute respectively.
