Starleaton will debut the Canon Colorado M5W large-format (1.6m) roll-to-roll UVgel printer with a white ink option at Visual Impact in Sydney, where it will be showcased for the first time in the region.
Ines Eaton, marketing manager at Starleaton, said, “This printer is sure to generate a lot of interest with its exceptional quality and productivity across a spectacular range of applications.
“The Colorado M range is already well-established as a go-to solution for meeting even the most demanding customer requests, and now with Canon’s unique UVgel technology extending to white ink, it’s possible to get outstanding results on an even wider range of substrates, at speeds up to three times faster than competitive printers.”
The company will also be showcasing a wide range of systems, equipment and media, and feature a host of sustainable solutions that represent the ‘world’s best practice’ in advanced manufacturing, waste reduction and recyclability.
“Sustainability is perhaps the most vital driver for businesses into the future, both in terms of environmental performance and profitability. Visitors will be able to see advanced and efficient solutions at Visual Impact, including Neschen laminating machines, imaging devices including Canon Colorado and Epson wide-format printers, and Zünd cutting systems and software for cutting, routing and engraving,” Eaton added.
The company will showcase an extensive range of sustainable media and materials and show how all elements can be tied together into a smart, automated and sustainable workflow.
Also included in the range of solutions to be demonstrated at the show is the Epson SureColor R5000 64-inch resin printer featuring the new Epson UltraChrome RS ink and the 76” Epson SureColor F10060 dye-sublimation for everything from soft signage to garment printing and home décor items.
“We will also be showcasing Neenah Coldenhove transfer paper for dye-sublimation transfer printing, which we will be demonstrating in action on the Epson F10060 printer. Coldenhove transfer paper offers unsurpassed transfer yield, reducing waste to a minimum and helping you save on sublimation inks,” Eaton said.
The Neschen ColdLam 1650 will complement the printer range, which is said to provide an ideal solution for mounting and laminating work on a very wide range of materials, in widths up to 1650mm, while the Zünd G3 digital cutter will demonstrate how businesses can tailor a cutting, routing and engraving solution to meet their specific production needs.
Eaton added, “We will have a team of experts on hand to chat to businesses about how they can use these and other solutions to create their own ‘micro factories’ that will enable them to streamline their production, cut costs and maximise profitability, as well as meet their sustainability goals.”
As can be expected from Starleaton, media will be a highlight of the company’s showcase, where sustainability will again be a key focus, said Eaton, confirming that in addition to the PVC-free and eco-friendly options from Neschen and others, new partnerships will be announced at the show.
