The jubilee edition of the REKLAMA POLYGRAF Trade Fair is quickly approaching, and leading world players who are represented in our market will not be missing at the PVA EXPO Prague Letňany Exhibition Centre in any case. Some of them even, already at least partially, start to reveal the news which they intend to present at the Exhibition Centre. What can one look forward to in the area of digital printing from such companies as Canon or Xerox?
New OCÉ COLORADO will have its first run in Letňany
Canon will present OCÉ COLORADO 1640 for the first time in the Czech Republic at all. The large-format roll-to-roll printer with a width of 64 inches uses the new printing technology known as UV gel. The Canon UV gel ink features immediate “adhesion” to the surface. The result is given by the controlled and highly precise placement of the print drop with its minimum enlargement. Thanks to minimisation of the ink dispersion into the surroundings, as well as limitation of its confluence on the medium it is possible to print out the required ink volume in each passage, which significantly accelerates the production process. The print outputs are thus characterised by a rich and intensive image also at high speeds. The outputs created with the help of the UV gel technology are immediately dry thanks to the independent state-of-the-art system of the low-temperature LED UV process. Océ Colorado 1640 is an ideal printer for production of materials intended for indoor as well as outdoor use, including folders, banners, outdoor signage, sales promotion materials, billboards, window graphics, labels and bespoke wallpapers.
Breakthrough technologies will be presented by Xerox
Also XEROX will present interesting news at the Prague Exhibition Centre and one of these innovations will have its first run there not only at a national level but also from the European point of view. It will be the breakthrough digital high-end print technology by Xerox. Apart from the actual technology, it will be possible to get familiar also with other of its possibilities useable in the area of refinement or final processing. The presentation will include also demonstrations of production of digitally printed packages, including finishing with the help of hot stamping and cutting out on the KAMA machine. Besides the above mentioned news, the Xerox company’s representatives will demonstrate also the well-proven machines of the Xerox Versant, Xerox C60/70 series and a software tool for automation of the FreeFlow Core pre-print preparation. And it will be possible to take part also in a discussion concerning new trends in the field of digital printing which include maximum simplification and effectiveness of the print production and at the same time an offer of other print benefits, especially in the field of finishing and refinement.
