Canon has announced at PacPrint 2017 the shipment and sale of the 6,000“ printer in the industry-leading Océ Arizona Series of ﬂatbed printers. The 6,000"‘ printer is an Océ Arizona 2280 XT, the latest model in a range of products that has seen eight major platform introductions over the last ten years, in several different form factors, and in more than 120 conﬁgurations.
The 6,000"‘ Arizona printer was sold to Technipub in Lesparre near Bordeaux,, France who joins thousands of other satisﬁed Arizona customers in almost 70 countries on six continents.
Océ and its distribution partners ﬁrmly established the mid-volume ﬂatbed market with the introduction of the Océ Arizona 250 GT in 2007. As the ﬁrst ﬂatbed printer in the market to use grayscale, variable droplet piezoelectric printing technology, the new Arizona printer demonstrated
print quality at a level that compelled more than 500 customers to purchase units in the ﬁrst few months of availability and garnered awards from industry bodies the world over. Since 2007, the Arizona Series has been widely recognized for its industry-leading quality position in the ﬂatbed market, winning more than industry 50 awards including 16 Product of the Year Awards from the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association, more than double the number of the next nearest competitor.
“The Océ Arizona Series has become an important tool for wide-format print production in the Australian and New Zealand Markets" said Adrian Morris, General Manager of Display Graphics at Canon Australia. “Having these sensational printers have enabled our customers to produce printed
products second to none, ranging from ﬁne art reproductions and retail point-of-purchase signage to industrialised product decoration. The applications for this technology platform are surprisingly varied and our customers ﬁnd new ways to use them every day.”
