We are proud to announce that our new Océ Arizona UV curable, flatbed printer is now up running.
The Océ Arizona printer combines a true flatbed design with a separate, dedicated roll-to-roll system. It can print onto rigid media up to 1.25 meters wide by 2.5 meters long by 48mm thick. With the Roll Media Option installed, we can print onto flexible media up to 2.2 meters wide.
The Océ Arizona printer uses four-colour (CMYK) inks and offers a White Ink Option to expand applications options to non-white surfaces. The White Ink Option enables under-printing for non-white media or objects, over-printing for backlit applications on transparent media and/or printing white as a spot colour. Under-printing white ink provides a base for non-white surfaces upon which colour can be added, giving users the ability to expand their range of offerings to include specialty applications. Over-printing white ink provides a diffusion layer for backlit applications that will be viewed from the unprinted side, enabling users to produce high quality backlit images for point-of-purchase applications. The ability to also print white ink as a spot color enables white features of images to be highlighted for greater effect. Day-night panels--which can be viewed either front-lit or backlit? can also be created by printing colour data on two separate layers with a white diffusing layer in the middle.
