Canon Europe has appointed Mathew Faulkner to the role of EMEA Director, Marketing & Innovation, Wide Format Printing Group. In this position, Mathew is responsible for strategic and operational marketing for the wide format printing business, which includes the imagePROGRAF, Colorado, Arizona, ColorWave and PlotWave product lines.

Canon’s large format graphics, roll-to-roll Colorado series is known for giving customers a choice between a velvety matte or vibrant glossy finish with just one ink set.

Canon will be helping print service providers (PSPs) and print factories (Hall 3.2 Stand A30) to ‘Make It BIG’ by being bolder and leaving a more lasting impression on their customers. The bigger the impact, the greater the value. The ‘Make It BIG’ campaign has been developed for this year’s event as a continuation of our ‘Make It’ drive to help print professionals boost business growth, optimise performance and maximise new opportunities in large format graphics. To support customers with this, Canon will be showcasing three European premieres of new large format digital print solutions at the event.

Canon has extended the coverage of its proCARE after-sales service programme for its full Large Format Graphics portfolio and it’s now available for all customers worldwide.

By providing on-site support with the fastest response times, and with parts, labour and travel time, preventive maintenance and remote support all included, Canon’s customers benefit from the highest return on investment and continuous production uptime at the highest and most consistent output quality.

In response to the growing demand from the users of its high-volume inkjet production presses, Canon has opened a new state-of-the-art production facility for water-based, polymer inks at its site in Venlo, The Netherlands. With a focus on operational efficiency, the 1500 m2 factory has been created from the shell of an existing building and fitted with the most up-to-date ink manufacturing equipment and levels of automation optimised to consistently deliver high-quality water-based, polymer CMYK inks and to minimise waste. At the same time, the plant has created new jobs, with its 30 employees being a mix of redeployed staff and new hires.

ILFORD is pleased to announce the launch of three new Canvas products: Due to growing consumer and business demand for a diversified canvas program, ILFORD has developed three canvas surfaces to fit various genres of photography or fine art reproduction.

To increase productivity with a roll width of 64 inches, the roll length has been increased by 3 m to 18 m.
