New printers offer Express and High Definition print modes.
Océ has announced the new Arizona 360 GT and Arizona 360 XT flatbed UV printer models, with enhancements over their 350 GT predecessors. Both are 4-color printers offering an Express Mode print speed of up to 377 sq ft/hr and a new High Definition print mode for fine feature reproduction, including the ability to print text as small as 2-point size (for technical and industrial applications such as printing on lenticular lenses and membrane panels).
The Arizona 360 GT features a standard table size of 49 x 98.4 in., while the Arizona 360 XT features an extra-large table size of 98.4 x 120 in.; they can print on a variety of rigid substrates up to 1.89-in. thick.
The new printers also include a UV curing system designed to provide more UV energy to support difficult-to-cure media while reducing heat at the media surface by 50%, improving support for heat-sensitive media such as thin polystyrene or polyester films. Both models also feature a new-style tabletop that allows very thin media to be printed directly on the table without mechanical distortion of the media into the vacuum holes. Available options include a roll-media option and a white-ink option.
