GreenGuard Gold


One Printer. Two Finishes. Matte or Gloss

Delight your customers with glossy banners that stand out from the crowd or wallpaper with the right deep-matte finish and brilliant colours, all printed on one device. No need to change inks or media!

Unrivalled Versatility

Produce durable quality prints on a variety of media, including SAVs, polyester textiles, heat-sensitive materials and plain paper. The flexible and more stretchable formulation of the UVgel inks provide perfect image stability even when prints are folded, bent and wrapped.

Breakthrough productivity

Shorten lead-times with consistently fast output speeds and rapid job turnaround. Two media rolls with online switching, and ink refill-while-printing empower non-stop printing for unmatched productivity.

FLXfinish - This ingenious technology maximizes the UVgel advantage with either a single – or a two-step curing strategy. It offers you a choice between a gloss or a matte finish without the need to change inks or the media. Enjoy vibrant matte prints on smooth and more porous / structured media, like uncoated plain paper.
UVgel - A radically new UV curable ink from Canon that bonds instantly on contact with the media, prior to LED curing. This results in:
  • Precise dot placement and no dot gain for consistent high quality images at high speed
  • Ultra-thin ink dispersion with almost no discernible physical profile and the lowest ink consumption rate can provide up to a 40% reduction in printing costs compared to 64" eco-solvent and latex systems
  • ​​​Low temperature curing - suitable for thin and heat-sensitive media
  • Outstanding scratch resistance
  • Easy lamination, smooth ink film
  • Odorless and instant dry printout
  • High precision color-matching and consistency
New UVgel 460 gel inks Flexible and more stretchable inks allow printing on a broad media range, including plain paper, self-adhesive vinyls and polyester textiles. The increased stretchability ensures you can bend or fold the prints without problems for applications as soft signage or fine-art canvas.
PAINT (Piezo Acoustic Integrated Nozzle Technology) technology predicts nozzle failure before printing and ensures drop size correction during the entire liftime of the printer. Consistent high-quality prints are ensured with increased throughput. Printer lifetime is also expanded with the printer checking the status of the printing nozzles and cleans clogged nozzles in just seconds.
