About the Oc� Arizona 660 XT printer
The Oc� Arizona 660 XT UV flatbed printer is the latest high-capacity
model in the award-winning Oc� Arizona Series. It is designed to deliver
high total and peak production capacity of up to 696 square feet per
hour while maintaining the uncompromising print quality favored by Oc�
Arizona Series customers.
Featuring six independent ink channels, this printer can be configured
for maximum productivity or optimized for maximum versatility with
double-opacity White, White Ink and Varnish or extra Cyan and Magenta (CM2)
resulting in even greater image quality at production speeds. It's
oversized, true-flatbed table accommodates rigid media up to 98.4 by 120
inches, and up to two inches thick; its seven independent vacuum zones
can be configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphics arts
media to help reduce or even eliminate manual masking, thereby
decreasing operator intervention and increasing productivity. It
includes features to help provide optimum image sharpness, density and
uniformity over the entire print area.
If a job can be printed digitally, it likely can be produced on an Oc�
Arizona 660 XT printer. With the ability to print on a wide variety of
media and objects, print service providers can capture revenue from
applications ranging from standard sign and display (point-of-purchase
displays, retail signage, backlit signs) to specialty and industrial
applications where the decorated substrate is not meant primarily for
display purposes (e.g. package prototyping, short-run packaging,
wallpaper and interior decoration, and consumer product decoration).
With one Oc� Arizona printer, full mixed-media campaigns can be produced
including rigid displays, banners, window cling, backlits, etc., to
service a range of customer needs to help maximum revenue.
About the Oc� ColorWave 900 printer
With print speeds of 12 inches per second and productivity of more than
800 B2 or 500 B1 sheets per hour, the Oc� ColorWave 900 printer closes
the gap between digital inkjet and traditional offset technology.
Designed for the GA (Graphic Arts), AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and
Construction), and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) markets, this
printer offers a digital workflow that can help increase productivity,
lower running costs, and increase flexibility for variable data and
short- to medium-run length print jobs.
With a maximum media width of 42 inches, the Oc� ColorWave 900 printer
incorporates proven six media roll capacity for a total input capacity
of 13,650 square feet (up to 650 feet per roll). The output is cut and
delivered - dry and ready to use - into a high-capacity stacker, which
features dual delivery trays for concurrent printing and unloading to
further maximize uptime and increase productivity.
The Oc� ColorWave 900 printer is ideal for a vast range of applications
including point-of-sale (POS) posters, exhibition and trade show
materials, counter and floor displays, and technical drawings and maps.
It is an attractive proposition for wide format print service providers
looking to increase print production capacity, and for commercial
printers looking for a powerful - yet economical - way to explore new
