Canon used Production Printing Business Days event in Poing, Germany to herald a number of milestones for its digital portfolio and demonstrate the breadth of its recently expanded range.
With its new Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan monochrome press, launched in August, taking centre stage in a live printing demonstration, more than 500 prospective and current customers came to the three-day event at the Océ’s German headquarters. In his opening speech, Océ chief marketing officer Christian Unterberger announced that, since release, the manufacturer had sold 100 units of the VarioPrint i300 and 1,000 units of the ColorStream series of presses, and 6,000 Arizona flatbed devices.
The theme of the event was to “celebrate the power of print”. Canon presented its range of tech alongside solutions from its finishing and workflow partners in order to show what it could do for commercial printers and in-house print departments to enhance their businesses.  Also under the spotlight was the new Océ Colorado 1640, which is the first roll-to-roll printer built to use Canon’s new UVgel technology.
