Océ Arizona 318 GL UV flatbed gets first UK unveiling at Sign & Digital UK

The first UK public showing of Océ’s new Arizona 318 GL UV flatbed printer will be at Sign & Digital UK at the NEC in Birmingham from 27-29 March.

On its show-stand E10 in Hall 3, Océ, part of the Canon Group, will be demonstrating latest developments in the Océ Arizona family, the world’s best-selling UV flatbed printers for the display graphics market, which will include the newest model announced worldwide on 16 February.

The Océ Arizona 318 GL system is a highly-capable introductory UV flatbed model that offers smaller print producers entry to the world of high-quality UV flatbed printing.

In 2010, Océ Arizona Series platform printers captured 43 percent of new installations in the mid-range UV flatbed market. Since the first shipment of an Océ Arizona Series printer in 2007, nearly 3,000 systems built on this platform have been shipped to date.

The Océ Arizona 360 GT will star at Sign & Digital UK, as will the Océ ColorWave® 600 poster printer, which incorporates Océ CrystalPoint® technology that uses toner pearls. Océ Imaging Supplies will also have a significant presence.

Once again at the show, Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, will be partnering Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for Zünd Systems Technik AG, the Swiss manufacturer of digital flatbed cutters. The two companies will be displaying the Zünd G3 L2500 digital cutting system.

Océ and its partners will use the event to demonstrate the latest labour-saving innovations, designed to reduce waste and increase productivity. There will also be online access to the popular Océ Media Guide, which provides detailed advice and guidance that helps printing professionals select the best media for their printers and applications.

Derek Joys, Océ UK’s Display Graphics Systems’ Programme Manager, said: “Once again our stand will be a must-see part of the show experience for all our customers and prospects, as well as other visitors. Sign & Digital UK is an important platform for us to demonstrate with world-leading technologies our commitment to this all-important market sector.”
