Experience unprecedented print speed, quality, and cost effective operation

Powered by UVgel technology, the new Canon Colorado 1650 printer fills the current gap in the roll-to-roll production market. Print Service Providers (PSPs) now have a clear choice that will delivery real production efficiency while lowering operating costs, resulting in growing profits. Print volume has continued to grow, while turnaround times continue to shrink. This technology was developed to provide a competitive edge for PSPs in this new market space.

The Canon Colorado 1650 printer is excellent for both the indoor and outdoor applications. It delivers a large color gamut, similar to solvent inks, but combines this with the environmental benefits and safety profile of latex systems.


Canon has developed a new UVgel technology that is having its debut in the Canon Colorado 1650 printer. UVgel technology is not a copy of evolution of existing technologies. It is an entirely NEW breakthrough, game-changing technology.

When developing UVgel technology, we analyzed current market technologies: solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV. Each technology has its specific strengths as well as limitations. We developed this UVgel product with one thought in mind – to combine all of the strengths of each of these technologies and eliminate their limitations in one single solution. Because these features are at the core of UVgel, we are able to break the laws of printing physics and print at speeds never before possible.

Features and Benefits


The Canon Colorado 1650 printer sets a new standard in industrialization and automation. It features a heavy-duty drawer mechanism that holds up to two rolls of media at one time, each weighing up to 110 pounds. The two rolls can be of the same media type and size or different media, and once initialized, the print engine can switch jobs between rolls without operator assistance.

Along with our automated maintenance feature, the UVgel printheads incorporate a patented on-the-fly quality assurance control with continuous nozzle monitoring to detect and correct any underperforming nozzles. Canon’s patented nozzle monitoring technology automatically checks all nozzles by using acoustic sampling and detects nozzle misfires before they actually happen.

With the robust frame and industrial motors, we developed a reliable media handling system. In addition, we’ve also added an optical system that continuously monitors the media step.

We do this by printing virtually invisible marks at the side of the print that are read by a scanner, and the system uses this information to continuously correct the media step.


  • A radically new UV curable ink from Canon that bonds instantly on contact with the media, resulting in precise dot placement and area control for consistent high-quality images at high speed.
  • UVgel offers the large color gamut of solvent inks and combines that with the environmental benefits and safety profile of latex inks.
  • Ultra-thin dispersion with almost no discernible physical profile and the lowest ink consumption rate can provide up to a 40% reduction in printing costs compared to 64″ eco-solvent and latex systems.
