Mid-volume print providers can now also think big

The latest addition to the world’s best-selling range of mid-volume UV flatbed printers have been designed for sign and display graphics print producers and is developed to support a broad range of rigid and flexible media applications. Featuring the enhanced print quality of six color Océ VariaDot™ printing technology, the new Océ Arizona 1200 Series makes attention-grabbing flatbed printing accessible to many. 

Leading the way

Since the launch of the Océ Arizona 250 GT in 2007, printers in the Océ Arizona Series have received an impressive collection of almost 50 industry awards. This recognition by industry experts is also reflected in the platform’s market-leading position, with over 5,000 Océ Arizona printers sold by the Canon Group companies worldwide. These next-generation mid-volume flatbed systems are expected to continue this extraordinary success.

Printing in volume, delivering to precision
Océ Arizona 1200 Series printers combine award-winning Océ VariaDot grayscale piezoelectric printing technology with a true flatbed architecture, for high print quality across a broad range of applications. In response to customer needs, the new printers are offered in 3 different configurations and 2 different size formats. From digital print service providers and sign makers to photo labs and reprographers, mid-volume printers can benefit from these sustainable and efficient mixed media printing solutions. These new solutions will also help enable specialty and industrial print producers currently using analog technology, to make the transition to digital printing helping with improved production flexibility and enhanced profitability.

Delivering superb print quality on rigid media and objects up to 2 inches thick and as large as 8 x 10 feet, the new Océ Arizona 1200 Series demonstrates the continued refinement of these award-winning flatbed printers. The optional use of light colors in the Océ Arizona 1200 Series, enhances the already excellent print quality and makes photographic and fine art applications better than ever.
