Océ, a Canon Group Company, has announced four new additions to its Arizona 400 series line of UV flatbed printers: The Arizona 460 GT, Arizona 460 XT, Arizona 440 GT and Arizona 440 XT. The new machines join the Arizona 480 GT and Arizona 480 XT introduced in October.

The Arizona 400 series now has devices with four, six or eight independent ink channels for two different flatbed sizes. The machines have Océ’s VariaDot technology that can create images with sharpness equivalent to 1,440 dpi or higher as well as text as small as 2 point. According to Océ, the devices are also upgradable, designed to grow with the user’s business.

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 to meet the demands of various jobs, as described by the company below:

Varnish + White: Using white ink, print service providers can produce 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.

The Océ Arizona 440 GT and Arizona 440 XT models include CMYK ink channels only. This is well suited 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.
