Protect Safety Signs, a supplier of traffic management signs based in Weston-super-Mare, has installed two Canon Océ Colorado 1640 printers.

Looking to improve productivity and service quality the company turned to Canon’s partner Amari Digital Printing Technologies (Adapt) to upgrade its print systems.

‘We are extremely happy with the installation of the two Colorado 1640s,’ said Andy Roberts, general manager of Protect Safety Signs. ‘Before working with Canon, we had never been able to reliably print and rewind a whole 50m roll of printed media. But the Colorado 1640 has transformed our print capabilities and we can now print much faster – 114sqm/hr – without the level of quality being compromised. This change has been such a positive step for the business and we are extremely impressed with the outcome.’

The new presses use Canon’s UVgel ink to increase productivity and speed while using less ink and still delivering an improved colour gamut. They can also handle multiple jobs on one device.

‘We are thrilled Protect Safety Signs has decided to install two Océ Colorado 1640 printers,’ said Duncan Smith, Canon UK’s country director for production printing products. ‘To see the company’s print capacity increase, all while using less physical space is great.’
