Arrow Digital Installs Canon Colorado 1650 at Wallqueen Interiors (P) Ltd. in Bangalore

15 February 2023: Wallqueen Interiors (P) Ltd. is a well-known company in the wall covering industry specializing in customized wall graphics and wall murals. The installation of the Canon Colorado 1650 is expected to help Wallqueen lead the market in customized interior decor with its efficiency and speed, which is three times faster than the average competition.

Shariff & Sonia Shariff, Directors at Wallqueen Interiors (P) Ltd. shares, the new addition will increase demand for customized interior decor and Wallqueen Interiors is confident in the new technology. The trend in interior design is moving towards personalization, with people wanting to decorate their homes, offices, workplaces, gyms, and holiday homes in unique ways that reflect their personalities and tastes. This trend is reflected in the growth of the wall decor business, as people seek out customized and personalized wall graphics and wall murals.

Sam Patel, CEO & MD at Arrow Digital (P) Ltd. said “Canon Colorado 1650 is packed with innovations, it is a 64” wide production printer with a resolution of 1800dpi, the new flexible inks and FLXfinish+ feature enables you to enjoy a wider application range with jaw-dropping quality and advanced productivity, all this at the lowest cost of ownership. The Colorado 1650 works with a new version of Canon UVgel ink, designed for maximum flexibility by increasing the ‘Stretchability’ of each cured ink droplet. The Canon UVgel inks are odorless and certified with GREENGUARD Gold by UL Environment, Type II by ASTM, allowing them to be safe for indoors. They are also certified by Media Partners for 3M MCS Warranty and Avery Dennison ICS Warranty. All this with a speed of up to 1709 ft²/hr.”

The PAINT nozzle monitoring feature enables continuous monitoring of nozzles with Piezo Acoustic Integrated Nozzle Technology (PAINT) and gets corrected if needed. Maximum confidence for unattended printing. UVgel ink when combined with LED curing creates jaw-dropping applications. Canon works with ONYX Thrive software delivering a scalable print production solution. The result is true end-to-end PDF workflow, from digital file submission through color management, printing, and cutting. ONYX Thrive Production Manager browser-based user interface enables workflow control from anywhere, helping to optimize both operator and output device productivity.

Canon Colorado 1650 is designed for high speed, efficiency, and quality, making it ideal for automating wallpaper production. The printer is three times faster than the average of its competitors, across each quality mode tested. The printer is well-suited for the wallpaper production process, offering high throughput and consistent quality. The combination of the Canon Colorado 1650 and the Fotoba 170 WP allows for complete automation of the wallpaper graphics process, reducing human interventions and increasing precision.

Sonia Shariff adds, “We are very excited and thrilled to finally install the Canon Colorado 1650, it is the perfect print platform for us and after working with Arrow Digital for several years and having taken trials on several media at their demo center, we are finally off to the races. We are confident we will be adding more printers in the very near future, not to mention the Fotoba finisher is a master stroke for our wallpaper business, and we will soon be converting the Canon and Fotoba into a Wallpaper Factory with jumbo rolls saving us a lot of time, money and resources.”
