Exciting News: Colorado M-Series with White Ink Receives 3M™ MCS™ Warranty Approval

Colorado M Series

We have some exhilarating news to share with you. Arrow Digital Pvt. Ltd. is thrilled to announce that the Colorado M-series, equipped with its impressive UVgel 460 white ink, has been approved for the prestigious 3M™ MCS™ Warranty program. This remarkable achievement recognizes the exceptional quality and performance of the Colorado M-series and its white ink capabilities.

What does this mean for you? Well, it guarantees that when you print applications using the Colorado M-series and combine it with the UVgel 460 ink and 3M’s approved media, you can achieve the highest quality standards imaginable. Whether you’re working on the wallpaper, vehicle graphics, signs and displays, floor graphics, transparent film, or even multilayer applications like window graphics, this approval ensures that your prints will meet the industry’s stringent requirements.

To obtain this coveted approval, the Colorado M-series and its UVgel 460 inks, including white, went through a series of rigorous tests under 3M’s watchful eye. They evaluated the printer, ink, and media combinations, as well as 3M’s advanced weathering technology.

The result? The 3M MCS Warranty offers both print service providers and their customers peace of mind and confidence that their printed graphics will perform flawlessly for the intended lifetime of the artwork.

Now, let’s talk about the 3M MCS Warranty itself. It’s widely regarded as the de-facto industry standard and is the most comprehensive and all-inclusive warranty for finished graphics out there. This non-prorated protection covers the graphic’s intended lifespan and shields it against fading, cracking, peeling, blistering, discoloration, and various other performance-related aspects. With the 3M MCS Warranty, you can trust that your prints are protected and will stay vibrant and eye-catching for years to come.

Addressing this event, Mr. Sam Patel, CEO and Managing Director of Arrow Digital Pvt. Ltd. said, “The Colorado M-series, introduced earlier this year, is a marvel in the printing world. It’s a single, fully modular platform designed to adapt to your needs and grow alongside your business. With easy in-field upgrades, you have the freedom to scale your printing capabilities effortlessly.

The series includes M5 and M5W, offering different output speeds, with the option to upgrade from one model to the other. And here’s the best part, M5 can be easily upgraded to include white ink, expanding your creative possibilities.”

Why is the Colorado series so impressive? It’s because of Canon’s revolutionary UVgel ink technology, which now incorporates white ink as well. This ink combines the best features of alternative ink technologies: the color gamut and lightfastness of eco-solvent, the fit-for-indoor use and quick drying time of latex, and the productivity and low-temperature printing process of UV. It’s like having the best of all worlds in one exceptional printer.

“With the addition of white UVgel ink to the 3M MCS Warranty program, you have even more opportunities to explore the full potential of UVgel’s exceptional performance,” added Mr. Patel. “From window graphics and labels to interior décor and multi-layer applications, you can create stunning, high-quality graphics that captivate your audience. UVgel inks are odorless, incredibly robust, and certified for both indoor and outdoor use, ensuring your prints are durable and long-lasting. Plus, with zero VOC emissions, zero hazardous air pollutants, and low ink consumption, UVgel technology is a sustainable and cost-efficient alternative to latex and eco-solvent technologies.”

We’re not the only ones celebrating this remarkable achievement. Woonsik Shim, Vice President of Graphics and Personal Auto Business at 3M Commercial Branding and Transportation Division, shares his excitement. He says, “Extending the warranty through our partnership with Canon and their growing UVgel portfolio reinforces our commitment to quality and to our customer’s success, which in turn inspires confidence in the printed graphics.”

Dirk Brouns, Vice President of Large Format Graphics at Canon Production Printing, is equally thrilled about this milestone and said, “We believe that the Colorado M-series, with its breakthrough UVgel technology, is transforming the way large format graphics and other applications are produced. By collaborating with industry leaders like 3M, Canon continues its mission to provide print service providers with endless growth opportunities in this exciting market, driven by their unique UVgel technology.

“This approval solidifies the trust and confidence that customers have placed in Canon’s Colorado platform and patented UVgel technology.” Said Mr. Patel, “We’re genuinely thrilled about this achievement and what it means for you, our valued customers. With the Colorado M-series and its white ink now approved for the 3M MCS Warranty program, you can take your creativity, efficiency, and profitability to new heights. Discover the limitless possibilities of UVgel technology and experience the difference it can make in your large format printing journey.”
