Océ has announced four new models in the Océ Arizona 400 Series of UV flatbed printers: Océ Arizona 460 GT, Océ Arizona 460 XT, Océ Arizona 440 GT and Océ Arizona 440 XT printers. Joining the Océ Arizona 480 GT and Océ Arizona 480 XT models introduced in October 2012, these additional models complete the Océ Arizona 400 Series of next-generation UV flatbed printers that feature exceptional quality, improved productivity, application versatility and the ability to upgrade as business grows.
The “right fit” for every customer
The Océ Arizona 400 Series includes six different UV flatbed printers featuring four, six or eight independent ink channels in two different flatbed sizes, offering a range of applications capabilities and capacity to suit nearly any mid-volume print service provider. And as a provider’s needs change, an upgrade path is available to ensure that the investment in an Océ Arizona 400 Series printer is protected from obsolescence.
Superior image quality supported by advanced technologies
Océ VariaDot® imaging technology is the key to the award-winning image quality of every Océ Arizona printer. Included in these new models, Océ VariaDot imaging technology can produce near-photographic quality with sharpness equivalent to 1,440 dpi or higher. Text as small as 2 pt. is perfectly legible, even when reverse-printed (white ink on a black field).
Active Pixel Placement Compensation assures image sharpness, density and uniformity, wherever it is printed on the flatbed or on the Roll Media Option. This feature is standard on all Océ Arizona 400 Series printers.
Reduced operator intervention equals improved productivity
A variable vacuum system featuring six vacuum zones on the Océ Arizona 400 Series GT models – seven on Océ Arizona 400 Series XT models – is configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphics arts media to reduce or eliminate manual masking thereby decreasing operator intervention and increasing productivity.
A batch mode supports complex, multi-layered jobs – those requiring multiple passes for specialty applications. These jobs can now be streamlined using the new batch mode tools, eliminating operator intervention between operations. Included on all Océ Arizona 400 Series models, batch mode can also be used to produce sets of prints sequentially for easy collation and fulfillment.
Choose the model that suits today’s printing needs …
Océ Arizona 460 GT and Océ Arizona 460 XT models include six independent ink channels with the first four configured for standard CMYK printing. Channels five and six can be configured in two ways that offer flexibility to meet the demands of various jobs:
- Varnish + White: Using white ink, print service providers can produce exceptional quality prints on a variety of non-white substrates – including backlit prints – that can command premium prices. Varnish can be used as a spot or flood decorative element for attention-getting results at high-value prices.
- Double-White: Alternatively, when not required for use in printing varnish, the sixth channel can be used as an additional white ink channel to provide double the opacity in a single printing pass for higher productivity when printing white ink jobs. This is particularly beneficial for backlit and industrial applications.
Print service providers can use these two channels in whichever configuration best suits their needs, changing from Varnish + White to Double-White (and vice versa) as needed.
Océ Arizona 440 GT and Océ Arizona 440 XT models include CMYK ink channels only. This is ideal for those shops that do not initially need the capacity for Varnish or White Ink printing or already have that capability elsewhere but just need to increase CMYK capacity.
… and be assured of an upgrade path as business grows
The Océ Arizona 400 Series printer family is designed to grow with a print service provider’s business. Owners can upgrade at any time to add more application versatility and improve productivity. The following upgrades are available:
