Canon Middle East annou-nced the global launch of the Océ Arizona 1200 Series of UV flatbed printers. 

Designed for print service providers (PSPs) that require  application versatility and ease-of-use, the Océ Arizona 1240, 1260 and 1280 are suitable for businesses in the sign and display industry, speciality print producers, reprographers and photo labs.

Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director, Canon Middle East commented: “There is an enormous opportunity for mid-volume PSPs to continue growing their business – whether they are focused on graphical communication, packaging, industrial printing or retail. However, in order to remain competitive, they must be primed to deliver a range of high quality products, quickly and cost-effectively.  The Océ Arizona 1200 series was designed and developed specifically with these requirements in mind. The wide format market is growing and we are committed to helping our customers grow alongside it, every step of the way.”

PSPs can print directly onto  materials with varied shapes such as canvas, wood, ceramics or glass and can print multiple times  for high density or textured applications, such as packaging or wall cladding, Canon announced in a statement. A stronger vacuum system provides drawdown of even warped, rigid media, whilst the new UV curing system reduces surface heat for printing up to thin, heat-sensitive media, making it a suitable  for retail displays and POS signage.  The devices use up to six-colours and can also be equipped with white and varnish.  The Océ Arizona 1200 series are available worldwide.
