McGowans Digital Print has partnered with Canon Ireland to install the Océ Colorado 1640 in its Dublin office

The new machine is intended to provide customers with technology driven solutions while also improving quality, value and production times. Commenting on the new partnership, Malcom McGowan, owner at McGowans Digital Print, said: “We have had the Colorado for around four months now and we view it as a significant upgrade on what we had been using. We have found it exceptionally reliable; it consistently shows an incredible effect. We have already paid for the machine in the first four months of use, so the return on investment in the Colorado technology is excellent.” Donnán Cullen, Key Account Manager, Canon Ireland said: “This partnership with McGowans, to install our latest and unique UVgel technology with the Océ Colorado, represents an extremely important step for Canon in the Irish market and we are delighted to continue to support McGowans in providing innovation for its customers.”


Canon’s UVgel print technology increases productivity and speed for McGowans, while using less ink and still delivering an improved colour gamut

Installation of the Océ Colorado has ensured consistently fast output and automation to ensure rapid job turnaround, which was only previously possible using multiple roll-to-roll engines or a larger flatbed

The Colorado has enabled exceptional quality high-resolution prints with the widest colour gamut and high repeatability thanks to advanced UVgel ink technology

The UVgel technology in the Colorado has allowed McGowans to print high quality products on the broadest possible range of media, even lower cost, thin or heat sensitive types

This partnership has allowed McGowans to ensure every part of its business is running to the optimum, creating new opportunities for McGowans to grow and enhance its customer base in the Irish market
