Mid-volume print providers can now also think big
The latest addition to the world's best-selling range of mid-volume UV flatbed printers have been designed for sign and display graphics print producers and is developed to support a broad range of rigid and flexible media applications.

Leading the way
Since the launch of the Océ Arizona 250 GT in 2007, printers in the Océ Arizona Series have received an impressive collection of almost 50 industry awards. This recognition by industry experts is also reflected in the platform's market-leading position, with over 5,000 Océ Arizona printers sold by the Canon Group companies worldwide. These next-generation mid-volume flatbed systems are expected to continue this extraordinary success.
Printing in volume, delivering to precision
Océ Arizona 1200 Series printers combine award-winning Océ VariaDot grayscale piezoelectric printing technology with a true flatbed architecture, for high print quality across a broad range of applications. In response to customer needs, the new printers are offered in three different configurations and two different size formats. From digital print service providers and sign makers to photo labs and reprographers, mid-volume printers can benefit from these sustainable and efficient mixed media printing solutions. These new solutions will also help enable specialty and industrial print producers currently using analog technology, to make the transition to digital printing helping with improved production flexibility and enhanced profitability.
Exceptional print quality
Over the years, the Océ Arizona printers have built a reputation based on craftsmanship and attention to detail. Delivering superb print quality on rigid media and objects up to 2 inches thick and as large as 8x10 feet, the new Océ Arizona 1200 Series demonstrates the continued refinement of these award-winning flatbed printers. The optional use of light colors in the Océ Arizona 1200 Series, enhances the already excellent print quality and makes photographic and fine art applications better than ever.
The true flatbed architecture has been designed to deliver the most versatile platform available. Print providers can do almost anything imaginable on rigid media or objects, including printing on odd-shaped, heavy, smooth or pre-cut media, or printing multiple times in perfect registration for high density or textured applications or printing oversized images tiled across multiple boards.
