Agfa wide-format printer and inks obtain 3M Performance Guarantee

Agfa has announced its Tauro wide-format printer series, and Anuvia 1551 ink has qualified for the 3M Performance Guarantee. 

In combination with a variety of 3M media, the Tauro printer series and the Anuvia ink set (CMYK + light colours and white) were subjected to a series of rigorous mechanical and physical tests carried out under 3M’s stringent assessment conditions to qualify for the Performance Guarantee.  

“At Agfa, we’re committed to partnering with print service providers to help them achieve sustainable growth. Our best-in-class Tauro printers provide a modular printer platform with advanced automation options. With the 3M Performance Guarantee, we are even better equipped to give our customers peace of mind and empower them to meet the highest quality standards and achieve boundless creativity. It lets them take full advantage of the Tauro and Anuvia performance across a full spectrum of graphics, including banners, front- and back-lit graphics, self-adhesive vinyl, rigid plastics, cardboard, and more,” said Dieter Jancart, Segment Manager High End Systems for Agfa.  

The 3M Performance Guarantee provides assurance that 3M media will meet the highest quality standards with the tested inks. It ensures reliable performance throughout the digital printing process and during the warranted period after application. The program covers various aspects, including physical defects, manufacturing defects, printing and cutting defects due to media, stated warranty period, fitness for use, adhesive to specified substrates, and removal for removable/changeable film.

The award-winning Tauro printers are Agfa’s fastest hybrid multi-pass inkjet printers. Offering 24/7 productivity and high quality on a wide range of rigid and flexible materials. The Tauro H2500 prints at a width up to 100 inch (2.5 m), while the Tauro H3300 can print on substrates up to 130 inches (3.3 m) and offers multiple automation options. 

Like other Agfa inks, the Anuvia inks boast a large colour gamut and sharp, vibrant images on a wide range of flexible and rigid, coated and uncoated media, with spot-on jetting behaviour. In addition, Agfa’s patented ‘Thin Ink Layer’ technology results in low ink consumption, saving print service providers money while delivering eye-catching prints. Finally, the Agfa inks carry multiple certifications and comply with a range of industry norms that pertain to a.o. chemical emissions and air quality, including GREENGUARD Gold and IKEA standards.
