Canon Unveils Océ Arizona 1300 Printer Series


The new Océ Arizona 1300 series of high-productivity mid-volume UV true flatbed printers feature innovations in print speed, ease-of-use and curing technology. The series is extremely versatile, allowing print providers to do more in a smarter way and do it now.

The Océ Arizona 1300 series has productive print modes, optional light and white ink support, optically clear varnish and enhanced screening to deliver outstanding print quality, print after print. It allows print providers with photographic or fine-art applications to print on a wide range of media, including odd-shaped, heavy, smooth or pre-cut media and unusual objects such as canvas, glass or wood.

Customers can choose from three GT models: Océ Arizona 1340 GT, 1360 GT and 1380 GT) with a flatbed print area of 124.96cm x 249.93cm (49.2 inches x 98.4 inches) or three larger 3.08m x 2.49m (121.3 inches x 98.4 inches) XT models (Océ Arizona 1340 XT, 1360 XT and 1380 XT).

Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc said, ‘In the Océ Arizona 1300 series, exceptional print quality comes standard. The new Océ Arizona 1300 series can provide our flatbed customers with a solution to the same two challenges they consistently face: the need to boost productivity and to diversify their applications portfolio to help open up new business opportunities.’

The impressive innovations in the new series are the extensive application range, integrated Océ Arizona Xpert self-learning technology and instant-on capability. Océ Touchstone software allows users to easily create textured prints, both transparent and opaque, that will even further help expand their applications capabilities and delight their customers.

The integrated Océ Arizona Xpert technology allows the printer to learn from what the operator does. This makes it easy and extremely productive to help reproduce complex, multi-layered projects. Just design them once with the intuitive user interface and print them. The printer will learn the recipe for the project, including transparencies and multi-sided printing, which can then be used over and over again.

With instant-on printing, the Océ Arizona 1300 series printer is ready when the end-user is. It delivers sharp, high-key prints up to 52.7sqm (568 square feet) per hour and high-density prints up to 35.30sqm (380 square feet) per hour. The new LED UV curing system offers instant-on capability, allowing operators to start valuable rush jobs without waiting for the printer to warm up. The Océ Arizona 1300 series is expected to be available from March 2019.

With the built in Automated Maintenance System (AMS) for hands-free printhead maintenance, nozzle function for all colours can be selectively restored in seconds. For customers with an evolving business or application range, the Océ Arizona 1300 series can be upgraded at any time such as by adding additional ink channels up to a maximum of eight, the Roll Media Option, or a Static Suppression Upgrade Kit that provides active suppression of static electricity when printing on hard plastic materials such as acrylic, polycarbonate and styrene. Also, the option to add light cyan and light magenta inks, plus the company’s brightest white ink, or optically clear varnish to the ink channels, helps enable even higher quality photo and fine-art and high margin applications than before.

The Océ Arizona 1300 series printers are designed for the easy, reliable operation a busy print environment needs. Operators can easily make last-minute adjustments at the printer, such as nesting, batching of complex jobs, step and repeat, mirroring and re-assignment of print modes.

Switching between rigid media jobs and roll to roll jobs can be done instantly at the push of a button with no extra tables to deal with. Media handling too is simple and efficient with the built in pin registration system to easily align media on the flatbed table. The new IJC357 UV inks are Greenguard Gold certified, so the prints may be used in sensitive environments such as in schools and hospitals.
