Technologies that make sense

Technologies that make sense

The Colorado 1650 is jam-packed with innovations. We changed the rules of the game with UVgel and FLXfinish+. Enjoy a wider application range, jawdropping quality and advanced productivity at low cost of ownership!

UVgel technology

A unique ‘print-then-cure’ technology with instant-dry gel inks, cured with UV LED lights. The advantage of a gel over a fluid is that it is possible to deposit more ink in less passes, without the ink flowing in and over the medium. It results in razor-sharp prints with a wide colour gamut. Odourless and extremely durable.

FLXfinish+ technology

This ingenious technology maximizes the UVgel advantage with either a single – or a two-step curing strategy. It offers you a choice between either a gloss or a matte finish and a mixed matte/gloss finish, without the need to change inks or the media or having an extra varnish channel. Enjoy vibrant matte prints on smooth and more porous / structured media, like uncoated plain paper.

UVgel inks

Flexible and more stretchable inks allow printing on a broad media range, including plain paper, self-adhesive vinyls and polyester textiles. The increased stretch ability ensures you can plie, bend or fold the prints without problems for applications as soft signage or fine-art canvas.

UVgel gel inks
 PAINT technology

PAINT technology

No need to babysit the printer as in the printheads, the nozzle status is continuously monitored with Piezo Acoustic Integrated Nozzle Technology (PAINT). When a malfunction is detected, the affected nozzle is (temporarily) switched off and compensated for by neighbouring nozzles. When the time is right, the print heads are cleaned. Fully automated.

The ecological advantages of the UVgel technology helped to make our choice. It was important for us to find a machine that can manage itself, without our operator working day and night.
