Oce has announced the availability of Oce VACUBOND paper for use with Oce Arizona Series UV flatbed printers to simultaneously facilitate the printing of pre-cut pieces and keep the vacuum table clean.
Because of the stationary vacuum table design, Oce Arizona Series printers can be used to print directly onto pre-cut items of any shape, up to two inches thick. Oce VACUBOND paper can be used to print a template for accurate placement of these items on the vacuum table. An operator aligns the pre-cut items to the template and begins printing.
Oce VACUBOND paper then serves as a mask to protect the vacuum table, particularly when overprinting (printing full bleeds) pre-cut items. Oce VACUBOND paper strikes the perfect balance between sufficient vacuum pressure and strong pull-through to hold pre-cut pieces in place. At 48 inches wide, it is conveniently sized for Oce Arizona Series UV flatbed printers to enable the operator to easily cover a single vacuum table zone with one cut of paper.
Oce VACUBOND is a 17-pound bond paper that can be recycled. It is available as a 48-inch wide by 500-foot long roll.
