Canon Colorado M-series has been recognised by 3M for its exceptional quality and together with its UVgel 460 white ink has been covered under the 3M MCS Warranty program.
This approval assures that applications printed on the Colorado M-series in combination with the UVgel 460 and 3M’s approved media will achieve the highest quality standards.
Applications covered by the 3M MCS Warranty include vehicle graphics, signs and displays, floor graphics, as well as transparent film and multilayer applications such as window graphics and many others.
To qualify for the approval, the Colorado M-series and its UVgel 460 inks including white, in combination with a variety of 3M media, successfully passed a series of tests carried out under 3M’s assessment conditions.
The 3M MCS Warranty gives print service providers and their customers peace of mind and confidence that their images will perform as expected for the intended lifetime of the printed graphic.
3M Commercial Branding and Transportation Division vice president of graphics and personal auto business Woonsik Shim said, “At 3M we take pride in the ability to provide graphics manufacturers the widest selection of premier printing solutions.
“Extending the warranty through our partnership with Canon and their growing UVgel portfolio, reinforces our commitment to quality and to our customers’ success, which in turn inspires confidence in the printed graphics.”
Canon Production Printing vice president of large format graphics Dirk Brouns added, ”With our breakthrough UVgel technology at its heart, the new Colorado M-series is giving the market a fully modular printer platform that now can also handle the high-margin white ink applications effortlessly.
“By securing the 3M MCS Warranty for the M-series including white ink, we are executing our long-term strategy to change the way large format graphics and other applications are being produced. And with that we bring creativity, efficiency, and profitability to our customers and sales partners.
“By working together with key industry partners such as 3M, we are continuing our mission to offer print service providers a continuous growth of opportunities in this exciting market, driven by our unique UVgel technology.”
The Colorado 1630, Colorado 1650 and also the new Colorado M-series with the UVgel 460 ink set, which includes white ink, are now all approved for the 3M MCS Warranty program.
