Colors Digital India (CDI) expands into new markets beyond Tier-I cities
As a manufacturer of a highly versatile and affordable range of digital wide-format printers and a treasure trove of spare parts, Colors Digital India (CDI) expands its footprints in new geographies beyond big cities and metros. Popular CDI machines in the company’s portfolio include FutureJet, MegaJet, SuperJet, Powerjet, and RobustJet available in roll-to-roll, flatbed, and hybrid models.
Colors Digital India (CDI) boasts a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant of 11,000 sq ft in the area at Kasna Industrial Area in Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR. The plant is well equipped with advanced technologies to engineer lines of highly versatile solvent, eco-solvent, and UV printers. Tejinder Singh, the CEO, of Colors Digital India (CDI), says the plant is now capable to produce premium quality UV printers, which include the highly-demanded models like CDI-2515 UV flatbed hybrid printer (8×4 ft) suitably designed for Indian customers.
Tejinder continues, “We keenly observe the changing market demand and investment capacity of our Indian customers. CDI UV printers in our portfolio are engineered in accordance with the affordability of Indian customers.” He adds that they have the motive to appease customers at all levels. In this context, CDI’s current machine portfolio is a full gamut that comprises models ideally designed for everyone whether looking for entry-level or high-end advanced machines.
Over the years, CDI has expanded its installation base in the country’s far-flung areas, beyond the Tier-I cities. “After a number of installations in metros and big cities we are now heading for far-flung regional markets. Now, we even have expanded our footprints in North-East India. Just recently we have chalked out a plan for further exploration of new markets like Manipur and other states in the region,” emphasizes Tejinder.
He adds that PSPs in several regional markets start to understand the value and competence of CDI machines and services. He rightly observes that various PSPs in far and near corners of India cry for unsatisfied after-sales services of many machine manufacturers and suppliers. “We prepare ourselves to fill this intricacy and fulfill the dire needs of our customers located in any part of India,” he says.
Future Digital System is a sister concern of CDI. Now, this division boasts a line of CDI FutureJet printers, viz. FutureJet 10, FutureJet -X11, to mention a few. Tejinder mentions that these series of machines are true workhorses, suitable for PSPs in the Indian market. He adds that the market has a line of high-end printers and machines from big brands, but the missing ingredient is the affordability and future-proof of the machines which CDI models maintain.
FutureJet 10 is a futuristic model with Konica Minolta 512i and 1024i printheads. It features 4-8 printheads and is capable to print 126-inch width at the maximum speed of 4800 sq ft/hr in the resolution of 480×360 dpi. Likewise, FutureJet-X11 also has all the unique features, which include an infrared heater, LED lights at the cleaning position, and a printing bed. In addition, it boasts a unique printhead protection stack and lift-type carriage.
Spare parts division
CDI’s spare parts division has a stock of printheads of all kinds and brands like RICOH, Konica Minolta (KM), EPSON, Spectra, etc. In the stock, varieties of eco-solvent, dye-sublimation, and UV inks are also included. Having been in the industry for years in manufacturing and distributorship of machines and spare parts, CDI has developed a core value and relationship with its clients.
After all, CDI provides a dedicated helpline in which a team of specialists takes calls and immediately handles the need of customers’ inquiries over the phone. Being a regular participant in all major trade expos in India, CDI is now fully geared up to demonstrate its popular machines and spare parts at Sign India 2022 Ahmedabad to be held from December 23-25 at GUCEC, Memnagar, Ahmedabad.
